Red Dead Redemption 2 developer Rockstar has dropped a New Year’s update on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
As part of the celebratory patch, Red Dead 2 fans can take advantage of some pretty nifty in-game bonuses.
Most notably of all, Red Dead Redemption 2 Online fans will receive a free Honour Reset to kick off 2021.
This is the perfect chance to wipe the slate clean, without having to spend any hard-earned cash.
Speaking of freebies, the new update gives players free drinks, free haircuts, and reduced cosmetic items.
“The arrival of the new year brings new starts and resolutions. To help celebrate, all Red Dead Online players will receive a Reward for a Free Honor Reset this week to wipe the slate clean, plus all players can take half off the cost of changing their character’s appearance.”
According to Rockstar, the haircuts are free until January 11, while drinks are available for the rest of the week.
Finally, players can earn triple-XP in A Land of Opportunity missions, as well as triple-XP in Free Roam missions.
