Red Dead Online gets new Telegrams system for repeatable jobs

These missions become progressively more difficult the more you do them.

A brand new Telegrams system has been introduced to Red Dead Online, bringing with it a few new jobs for players to complete.

That’s according to RockstarIntel.com, which posted on Twitter that this new addition allows players to complete three repeatable solo jobs. These are called Outrider, A One Horse Deal and Rich Pickings, but one assumes that Rockstar will be adding more to the game as time goes on.

In order to start these tasks, users have to head to a Post Office and pick up a Telegram before reading it in their satchel.

As players do them over and over again, these jobs will become more difficult but there will be an increased reward to reflect the higher challenge. You also need to wait 23 minutes between doing each job.

Since its launch back in November 2019, Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold more than 36 million copies. Rockstar released a standalone version of the game’s online mode – Red Dead Online – debuted at the end of 2020 at a huge discount, something that ended yesterday (Monday, February 15).

“Engagement with Red Dead Online reached new heights and there were more players, including more new players in the month of December than in any other month since its beta launch in 2018,” the boss of Rockstar parent company Take-Two, Strauss Zelnick, said recently when speaking to investors.

“In addition, Red Dead Online grew its audience and had more overall players in calendar 2020 than 2019. Rockstar Games will continue to support both Red Dead Online and Grand Theft Auto Online with more content updates throughout calendar 2021 to keep new and returning players excited and engaged.”
