- New items, weapons, clothing and horse-drawn vehicles

- Additional horse breeds
- The ability to change your character’s appearance without resetting progress
- Expanded custom outfit slots
- The ability to name saved outfits
- Role-specific Free Roam Events

All aspiring Traders on PlayStation 4 will receive free access to the Trader’s role with a free Butcher’s Table through 14th October, simply meet Cripps and discuss the venture to get started.
