It’s time for another weekly update for Red Dead Online, and for this iteration there’s some very nice surprises in store for your very best friend on the frontier – your horse. Plus, some offers still stand for Twitch Prime members, which will be available until Friday.

Last week’s update doled out the Explorer Care Packages, which are rewards given to players who successfully complete the daily challenges available in Red Dead Online. Some new items were also made available at the Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue, and we also saw support finally drop for Twitch Prime rewards. This week, the bond between horses and riders will take center stage as Rockstar gives away some care packages, plus some hefty discounts on other horse-related items.

Let’s take a look at the new clothing first, which is now available in the Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue. This selection of new items is a great fit for the frontier’s gunslingers. If you fancy yourself one, then it’s time to dress like one. The stylishly wide brim of the Descoteaux Hat should help protect your head from both a good scalping and the elements, while the Alvarado Chaps offer some hardwearing hide from south of the border. Complete the trio with a pair of the elegant Gerden Morrow Spurs.

The addition from last week, the Cossack Hat, will remain available for the rest of the week.

This week is also all about your horse, and as such expect big discounts on the way for all equine-related things. To start off, it’s always important to have new mounts available whenever you need them, which you can get from Stable Spaces – offered at 20 percent off this week. Players will also get 20 percent off all horses under Rank 40, like the elegant Flaxen Roan Tennessee Walker.

It’s also the perfect time to reward your horse for all the services and convenience it offers you, and you get to do that for free as well. This week, all players will get a Horse Care Package, which includes: a Horse Reviver, which is pretty handy if your horse ever gets incapacitated; 2 Horse Medicine, which you can give your horse to fortify its health with a gold outer bar; 2 Horse Stimulants, which do the same but for your horse’s stamina instead of health; and 5 each of Oatcakes, Hay and Carrots, to keep your horse well fed.

This Friday also marks the last day for Twitch Prime members to link their Social Club accounts in order to receive RDO$300. In case you miss the deadline, you’re still eligible for a Superior Ammo Bundle, plus more exciting benefits to be announced in the future for both Red Dead Online and GTA Online.

Red Dead Online is now available to play on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
