It seems the holiday spirit is everywhere and the five states in Red Dead Online are no exception. As the winter weather starts to set in, it's now time to start enjoying the limited-time Festive Showdown Modes or decorating your Camp and Moonshining Shack.

Holiday Showdown Modes

Let's start with Showdown Modes. For this season, sharpshooters can test their skills in Spoils of War, Up in Smoke, and Overrun. PlayStation 4 players, meanwhile, get exclusive access to festive variations of modes like Gun Rush, Make it Count, and Last Stand. To get access, simply find the Series in the Online Menu as this is available only until January 6.
