This month on the frontier, (expectant?) outlaws can find an assortment of bonuses on Free Roam Events/Missions, an opportunity to save their favourite towns from evil in Call to Arms, bonuses on A Land of Opportunities Missions, the Featured Series – and in theme for GTA Online’s Summer Racing Event – bring your horse to the Races for bonuses.

Hold your own in Free Roam Events and Missions

The frontier isn’t always the peaceful, beautiful place you might think it is. Distant or close-by gunshots will disturb your appreciation of the vistas, and you must go and see what’s going on. Someone with a telegram runs to your you as you reach a town, and you find out a Free Roam event is happening. Indeed time to see what’s going on.

This Month’s Community-Inspired Outfit

As usual in Red Dead Online event months, Rockstar selects or is inspired by community created outfits all across the Internet – this time with an outfit by JillyBeany on YouTube, who creates both Red Dead Online and GTA Online outfits to get those creative juices flowing. Their creation inspired R* this month, and as such, check out the following items this month to emulate it:

A specialised image of this month’s Community Inspired Outfit will be available from R* themselves.
