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.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

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?

RELATED: Red Dead Online Beta Begins Tomorrow

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 Redemption 2: Undead Nightmare Teased?

Evidence is found within Red Dead Redemption 2 that clearly suggests for a second Undead Nightmare DLC.

The original Red Dead Redemption had a standalone expansion pack titled Undead Nightmare that added a zombie horror-themed single-player campaign, multiplayer modes and cosmetics. Players really loved this idea of an alternate reality take on the game.

When Red Dead Redemption 2 launched a month ago as a prequel to the Western-themed action-adventure title from 2010, everyone wondered to themselves that whether or not developer/publisher Rockstar Games will release the DLC campaign for RDR2.

RELATED: Red Dead Online Battle Royale Revealed

Recently, evidence were found and shared on social media that suggests a second Undead Nightmare DLC on its way. Reddit user BrodytheBeast20 found a creepy Easter egg in a well near Tall Trees that is a direct nod to the acclaimed horror experience.

Although many players are already done with the story campaign and jumped into multiplayer mode Red Dead Online, we would like to warn you that if you haven't finished the game and want to stay away from any spoilers, you should hold your horses here.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2.

Awright, just like the previous title, RDR2 features a playable epilogue where a substitute main character takes place of the protagonist and the control is switched. The game shifts control from Arthur Morgan to John Marston and taking him down to a well in Tall Trees will lead you to the following.



RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Videos Deleted and Restored by YouTube

This hint is more than obvious and a bit on the nose but you can still see it in the dark deep down the well if you light it up with a lantern. Moving the camera angle will show a skeletal-face of Marston, which clearly resembles to the promotional image of the Undead Nightmare DLC.

Now it could either be a simple nod to the original campaign or it could simply foreshadowing his tragic ending after he put up a valiant last stand at the end of the Red Dead Redemption. If this is nothing but a reference to the past, then there is not much to be excited for.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Hits 17 Million Sales

Undead Nightmare was a lengthy playthrough set in the original map of RDR creating a different world with familiar characters. The prequel may follow the same formula to cook up a zombie thriller starring John Marston as playable hero once again.

Aside from an engaging storyline and gameplay, Red Dead Redemption 2 is full of Easter eggs here and there. If one of them turns out to be a tease for an upcoming expansion, it would really be great and would be a better plan than the ones you keep hearing from Dutch.
