The holiday spirit has taken hold in five states, Rockstar wrote, which is a great occasion for some Red Dead Online novelties, like limited-time Festive Showdown Modes, Camp and Moonshining Shack decorations, gifts and more.

"On your travels, you may have heard piano players in the saloons playing festive songs as folk across the country merrily indulge in holiday festivities. Be warned, however, that the changing of the seasons often brings harsh weather to the frontier, with snowfall predicted to arrive as soon as tomorrow", they said. 

So, Red Dead Online players are heading for a few Showdown Modes like Spoils of War, Up in Smoke and Overrun. On the PlayStation 4 side of things, we're looking at Gun Rush, Make it Count and Last Stand. All these will be accessible until 6 January 2020 via the Online Menu.
