Rockstar celebrates "another record-breaking year" of GTA Online & Red Dead Online

The free gifts available in both Red Dead Online and GTA Online are part of Rockstar's celebration of "another record-breaking year" for both online games.

GTA Online and Red Dead Online

Rockstar has thanked the online community of both games for the level of player engagement in 2020. "From everyone here at Rockstar Games, we would like to thank the community for playing with us throughout a year that was unlike any other... The feedback has been incredible, and we are grateful to everyone who played with us in what we are extremely humbled to say was yet another record-breaking year for both games."

Rockstar says "Red Dead Online also experienced more players, and more new players, this past December than any time since the launch of the beta." To celebrate, Red Dead Online has a gift bundle available if you play before February 15th, made up of a free horse under rank 40, a free stable slot, 5,000 Club XP, two free Ability Cards, high velocity ammo for all gun types, a free coat, a free hat of rank 15 or under, a reward for a free shirt of rank 15 and under, a free fast travel voucher, a horse reviver, and other tonics and consumables. GTA Online "shattered its own records once again, with more players than any previous year," but its rewards aren't quite as impressive — if you play before February 12th, you'll get the Rockstar Cap and Rockstar Rolling Tee for free. Both games also "broke records for video views in 2020."

2021 will bring us "exciting future updates to both games... including new employment opportunities for solo players in Red Dead Online," as well as more events with bonus GTA$ and a free vehicle in GTA Online. We'll let you know when we hear what else Rockstar has planned for GTA Online and Red Dead Online in 2021.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
