Red Dead Online players won't have to worry about their progress being reset after the multiplayer beta ends, Rockstar Games confirmed on Tuesday.

The problem for many players with this, however, is that Gold Bars allow you to obtain certain items earlier than you can without them, meaning one can buy Bars with real money and get a leg up on other players online.

Outside of the in-game economy, Rockstar is also planning to address some of the "persistent bugs" related to players getting kicked out of sessions. "Please stay tuned for more news to come".

Rockstar says it developed the game in such a way that it can make timely adjustments based on feedback received.

For players wishing to share additional thoughts to help shape the future of the online portion of "Red Dead Redemption 2", Rockstar is soliciting additional player feedback, which can be shared via the official "Red Dead Online" website. However, many have since flocked to the wild wild web to point out the absurdity of the game's economy. The game is available to all players at present, and the beta is meant as the beginning of "Red Dead Online" proper.

Thankfully, Red Dead Online is here, and even though it's in a beta stage right now, there's a lot to be excited about.

It is now unclear whether this reworking will extend to Red Dead Online's gold bar system. Several bars are often required for a purchase.
