Rockstar has learned a lot about building an online world after five years of GTA Online, and Red Dead Online is shaping up to be something truly special. To be fair, it's not a model where you have to pay to make any meaningful advancement, but there's enough tempting stuff where the online currency might be worth it. And yes, it also means we're one step closer to Red Dead on PC.

In 2013, Rockstar rolled out Grand Theft Auto Online, which had a greater emphasis on player progression through grinding, bringing in currency and progression markers, such as high-end properties and cars.
