The update tackles a huge number of gameplay problems in multiplayer across combat, shops, items, vehicles and more.

But perhaps the biggest inclusion of Update 1.20 is a new specialist role, the Naturalist, which emphasizes tracking, hunting, and studying the many different animals in Red Dead Online.

You can look over the Naturalist role more in the newest trailer!

Along with the Naturalist role, there will be seven new legendary animal species coming to the game, including cougars, foxes, boars, beavers, wolves, bison, and elk – all with three different subspecies.
