Red Dead Online Battle Royale Mode Gun Rush Live Now

Red Dead Online gets a more action-focused Battle Royale mode Gun Rush today, which is a 32-player fight for survival.

Battle Royale genre of games is not seeing the same traction it once saw with games like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Later, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 managed to show some potential for a while though with the release of their Blackout mode.

Western action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 however took the most unique take on the category with their online multiplayer component Red Dead Online where players duke it out among them using bow and arrows or a bunch of throwing knives.

Although the known online multiplayer mode of RDR2 is still in beta phase after launching on November 2018, developer/publisher Rockstar Games released a brand-new update to make battle royale more interesting and take it to a bigger scale.

Titled Gun Rush, the newly introduced mode pits a maximum of 32 players into the same Wild West where the story of Arthur Morgan took place, to fight till the last person standing in an ever-shrinking area as they look for weapons and ammunition.

The previously existed game mode "Make It Count" was an interesting take on the genre but on a much smaller scale that didn't rely much on weapons for survival but the updated game mode takes things to a more action-packed, intensified extent.

Rockstar also plans to bring in changes like bounty upgrades for committing crimes and Parley system to deal with feuds in structured manner. These balances will be implemented mostly to deal with aggressive players and grievance.

Of course RDR2 version of battle royale is not heading towards the weird building mechanics in the middle of a fight like Fortnite Battle Royale or forcing players to face poor optimization and performance issues like PUBG. They are keeping it to a manageable number of 32 players to have everything under control.

Another change they are planning to make for Red Dead Online is altering the way player blips in the map to make it more difficult to detect player locations within long distances unless they start killing indiscriminately and then the blip gets darken so that others can identify them.

Red Dead Online Battle Royale Revealed

Leave your guns behind and pick up some bows or knives to enter Red Dead Online battle royale arena!

It's been over a month that developer/publisher Rockstar Games released their most anticipated title of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2 that led to huge sales and stellar reviews. The online multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online also started today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Earlier, there was buzz of the multiplayer to feature a battle royale-like mode but many has laughed it off because almost every game out there these days have a mode like that but now there is more evidence on social media to back that rumor up.

Recently, a list of activities from RDO has been posted on Twitter by illogical Mods ahead of the beta's launch that supports the theory of battle royale.



RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Early Access Content

The list reveals the inclusion of a few jobs, races and the most talked about battle royale mode. Even though Rockstar is joining the trend like many others, they are keeping their word of not being a "copycat" unlike every other big title from the genre.

Make It Count pits up to 32 players on a shrinking area for a last man standing confrontation but this is not your typical battle royale mode where you engage in a shootout. Instead of any six shooters, you are only armed with bows or knives as weapons.

Depending on where you stand at the moment, you can have either one of them to duke it out with fellow outlaws. For instance, you will end up with the bow if you are playing in Saint Denis Plantation and Tall Trees. Stillwater Creek and Strawberry hands you throwing knives.

A cowboy conflict is often sorted out with some shootout but throwing bows and knives in exchange for guns was a good twist though. Restricting players to silent weapons like these put more emphasis on stealth and thus, creates more tension.

The developers also created a few bounty jobs, where you interact with a character named Horley and take tasks like hunting down outlaws or avenge the death of a man for his widow. He will also introduce you to horse thief Clay Davies to learn bits of rustling trade.

Players can also engage in various activities the massive map of single player campaign with friends or just go solo. If you miss shootout then there will be a lot of scopes for that regarding battles over territories. Otherwise, what's the point of including the vast amount of weapons in the game?

May be it is too early to say this but Red Dead Online make a very good move by taking a more stealthy approach to battle royale, which many of the games are not following these days at all. The best part is that, it completely removes any issue that may rise with weapon balance problems.

However, Rockstar may eventually add the traditional battle royale gameplay mechanics in future though. Red Dead Redemption 2 is only rolling out its online multiplayer in beta form but it will take some more time for all players to join the full experience it has to offer.

Red Dead Online Beta Begins Tomorrow

Early access to Red Dead Redemption 2 multiplayer mode Red Dead Online Beta begins tomorrow, November 27.

Right after Western action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games is released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, people might have forgotten that there is a real world out there and got lost into the open world of the game.

Now that many have finished playing the main game, players are now waiting for its online multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online. Rockstar has announced to launch the beta on November 27, 5:30 AM PT and only will open up to the owners of RDR2 Ultimate Edition.

Much like GTA Online, players can create and customize their own characters and use the full map of RDR2. You can go solo or play the mode with up to seven other players to join a posse that goes out for hunting and fishing together.

Some of the camp system from the main game will be available in the mode and you are allowed to attack rival gangs in their hideouts or fight other players. There are even rumors of including some kind of battle royale mode but that has yet to be confirmed.

Red Dead Online Announced

Rockstar Games announced Red Dead Online, an open world multiplayer experience for upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2.

When Rockstar Games released Red Dead Redemption for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles back in 2010, it had its own online multiplayer, where players could try out a several different modes in the open world of the game with friends.

Today, they have announced the vast multiplayer component for their upcoming Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2, which will initially launch in November 2018 as a public beta with more features to explore.

The cooperative play, Red Dead Online will not come out at the same time with RDR2 which is releasing on October 26, 2018 to avoid issues. When GTA Online was initiated, it delivered players a few frustrating weeks of gaming experience and Rockstar have learned valuable lessons from their past mistakes.

Another reason would be to deliver a standalone, unique feel of its own. Anyone who would own a copy of RDR2 will be able to access RDO public beta a month later on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Reveal

Both Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online will use the same gameplay mechanics yet deliver a completely separate sense of playing. Though already pretty massive, the main game will offer a single-player journey that is mostly stationary.

On the other hand, players will get new content updates and fixes to keep things interesting in the long run. Because of these alterations, there could be problems during the launch and Rockstar Games is staying steer clear of that.

RDR2 is actually a prequel and happens to be biggest release of the company since they launched Grand Theft Auto V in 2013. So, they will follow up a month after with RDO and the beta will point out which areas they need to focus their efforts on.

Players will probably get to enjoy some real competitive modes like Grand Theft Auto Online regularly offers though their steady stream of updates. Since possibilities are near limitless in online multiplayer, it will surely be fun to watch.
