As the bounty hunter, trader and collector, gamers will be able to "track down wanted criminals", "search the world for treasure" and "build a business at camp as a trader".

In a blog post, Rockstar Games said: "With the foundation of 'Red Dead Online' now established, future updates will offer new ways to fully inhabit your character as you progress in multiple roles and carve out your own place on the frontier.

"Starting this summer, players will be able to take on the first three of a series of new roles: track down wanted criminals as a bounty hunter; search the world for treasure, and other exotic items to sell as a collector; or build a business at camp as a trader and more."

More information, including a release date for the 'Read Dead Online' update is expected to follow in the coming weeks.
