Dakota River Bend was established with the aim of offering a dedicated space for passionate fans of Red Dead Redemption. The founding team, dissatisfied with the lackluster updates in the official online gameplay, embarked on a mission to create their own Red Dead Online experience. Their goal was to provide a platform that offers frequent updates, proactive moderation to tackle toxicity, opportunities for player input and feedback on future updates, and a platform to create unique and engaging stories.

One of our key features is our controller-friendly design. We understand that not all players are native keyboard and mouse users, so we have ensured that the majority of our in-game functions fully support controller inputs. This allows players to comfortably enjoy the game using their preferred input method without any hindrances.

At Dakota River Bend, we strive to deliver an immersive and inclusive environment that caters to the needs and preferences of our community. We encourage players to join us, contribute their ideas, and embark on their own unforgettable adventures within the world we have created.

Casual Role-Play

We believe in creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all players, including those who are new to roleplay.

Casual RP, as we define it, embraces the acceptance of inexperienced roleplay and the inevitable mistakes that may arise.

It’s important to note that basic roleplay etiquette is still essential and enforced within our community.

To familiarize yourself with these etiquette guidelines, we recommend referring to our dedicated resource on roleplay etiquette and definitions, titled “RP Etiquette“.

This also means, that your roleplay experience does not need to be backstory driven. We encourage first timers to join our server as themselves, in 1899.

If you’re completely new to RedM, head on over to the Getting Started page to get all the software and instructions you’ll need to join us! We ask that you read through the Community Rules, Guidelines, and RP Etiquette, to familiarize yourself with our policies, before proceeding to our discord server!
