Red Dead Redemption 2 Online is getting new content this month and more ways to enjoy the Wild West.

While Red Dead Online hasn’t proved as popular as GTA V’s multiplayer experience, that doesn’t mean there aren’t many fans counting down to the next big patch.

For now, Rockstar Games has only revealed the release date of the Red Dead Online Summer update, which is scheduled for Tuesday, July 13.

The new expansion is called Blood Money and will feature “a slew of new illegal ventures to the frontier”.

That doesn’t tell us much, but the good news is that fans won’t have to wait long to find out the final juicy details.

Rockstar Games has confirmed that the Red Dead Online Summer update trailer will be shared on July 7.
