My posse and I have kept Red Dead Online in our stable of games we routinely play. The sweeping landscape, variety of game modes, and our connection to our characters ensures that we regularly log in and take to the roads. There’s just one problem that we’re encountering, and it’s about the horses. We don’t know if this is a bug, intentionally coded behavior, or an act of God punishing us for our hubris, but we’re in one dilly of a pickle — we’ve got a set of jealous, angry horsies on our hands. Take my buddy Jake and his trusty steed Gladius. Gladius was Jake’s first horse that he worked to unlock, and the horse is an all-rounder. Races, free roam, combat? Gladius can handle it all.

Plus, meteors are visible to the naked eye - even in London. Here's the info: What is the Taurids meteor shower?

The packs released in the 1st Wave are: 74-Z Speeder Bikes Unit Expansion Stormtroopers Unit Expansion AT-ST Unit Expansion AT-RT Unit Expansion Rebel Troopers Unit Expansion T-47 Airspeeder Unit Expansion FFG also released dice and movement & range ruler packs that add additional accessories to those in your core set. Four of these unit packs include the same troop options included in the core box, they just offer additional versions of these in order to expand your ‘force’ options (or allow you to rain down more inexplicably inaccurate fire in attempt to bring balance to the dice odds).
