Online gaming has revolutionized the industry. Well-known developers like Rockstar used to work on blockbuster releases over a long time focusing on in-depth story modes to get 40+ hours of gameplay.
With GTA V, and now Red Dead Redemption 2, there has been a definite shift into players moving from story mode into multiplayer gaming in online worlds with other players.
But this means the developers have to stay on top of servicing the environment for all the players, and it means they have to keep updates coming thick and fast.
With that in mind, it's worth knowing when these daily and weekly updates happen so that you can know when to plan your in-game scrimmages to make the most of the challenges and when to expect new content.
Here is what you need to know about the daily and weekly reset times;
