Rockstar's latest update to Red Dead Online will see the addition of some fan favourites from the Red Dead Redemption 2 yarn, and we're talking about Black Belle, Sadie and Jake Adler. The update also adds PS4 Early Access content and more.

These new free roam missions should complement the ones added last week , and it looks like Rockstar are slowly but surely ensuring Take-Two's expectations are eventually met.

Anyway, you can start the two new Free Roam missions by visiting the Adler Ranch in Ambarino or seek out gunslinging Black Belle in Lemoyne.

"In addition to 25% RDO$ and Gold increased payouts for all A Land of Opportunities Missions, Free Roam Missions, Showdown Modes, Races and Free Roam Events – playing in a Posse this week at any point will earn you 5 bonus Gold Bars", Rockstar wrote. 

They reminded that playing in a Posse has more benefits than just the Gold Bars, as playing together means extra RDO$ and XP, as well as being able to involve the entire Posse in Free Roam events, Competitive Challenges or Showdown Series.

Rockstar also dumped a bunch of cosmetics into the Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue, which along with unspecified stability fixes completes the content aimed at both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. 

The rest of the update is reserved for Red Dead Online's PS4 Early Access content, starting with the Ancient Tomahawk on the photo above, and a new Make It Count: Ancient Tomahawk Showdown Mode, which is a battle-royale-like experience limited to the Tomahawk.

Red Dead Online is also getting Last Stand, "a bloody free-for-all Showdown Mode with no way out, no second chances and one winner", which seems like the same thing but with all the weapons allowed.

PlayStation 4 owners are also getting early access to the new Perlino Andalusian Horse, along with a bunch of other cosmetics.

It seems like Rockstar have much more work to do on Red Dead Online, as Take-Two's recent report stated that the game is not yet at the level they'd like it to be.
