The developer behind Red Dead Online has confirmed it has no plans to reset player progress after completion of the beta period.

"The game has been developed so that we will be able to quickly make any adjustments like these", Rockstar said.

The changes include an increase in the cash and gold payments across activities like Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, and replays of A Land of Opportunities missions, Showdown Series modes, and a selection of other choices. In a press release sent out today, the publisher wrote: "We want to thank the Red Dead community for playing and sending us tons of valuable feedback during the first full week of the Red Dead Online Beta's availability".

Weapons will be reduced in price as well.

If you're having issues with the game in its Beta state, we can't communicate how important and helpful it is to actually use that form and let Rockstar know your issues. For players that have already purchased weapons at the previous prices, we will automatically deposit the difference to player balances starting today.

Pelts, skins and fish have also been re-balanced.

Girona, the Spanish club owned by the same parent company as City , is perhaps Steffen's most likely destination. As reported by Telegraph Sport last month, City are eager to sign the reigning MLS goalkeeper of the year.

PS4 and Xbox One players have been providing plenty of feedback on how Rockstar could improve RDR2 Online, and making missions more rewarding is one of them.

While updates and tweaks will be made in the coming weeks, Rockstar Games are not planning on wiping any player progress.

Stay tuned for a follow-up once we've had a chance to dive in and check out the update for ourselves.

A large number of Red Dead Online players voiced their concerns at what they perceived to be excessive grinding during the first week of the beta.

RDO players who have participated in the Beta thus far will also receive an in-game gift of $250 and 15 Gold Bars, which will start being distributed today and should be in everyone's possession by Friday, December 14th.

The Week 1 Red Dead Online patch aims to address some of these claims by balancing the game's economy a bit better.
