Red Dead Online May Have Teased Undead Nightmare

Rockstar Games may be teasing Undead Nightmare for Red Dead Online with zombies showing up in-game.

Within a month after launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Western-themed action-adventure smash-hit title Red Dead Redemption 2 has added its multiplayer component Red Dead Online but it failed to be just as successful.

After brand-new Frontier Pursuits update is deployed earlier this month, many players have reported sighting of zombies in RDO and skeptical fans theorizes that developer/publisher Rockstar Games is teasing Undead Nightmare.

It starts with one Redditor noticing dead bodies lying around near swamp area after last week's update, which he originally thought to be a glitch. Then some more corpses were found that has pale blue skin and doesn't seem like glitch anymore.

The first zombie NPC that was ever sighted near swamp was not lying down and had grayish skin color. Also, Halloween is only months away from now, so it is possible that Rockstar is cooking something for their cowboy adventure.

Image of that creepy-looking zombie lady is made it to Twitter and players started speculating about it on social media.

Couple of more blue-skinned dead bodies found near Armadillo, which could later serve as a ground zero for an outbreak. They were all lying in a small hole in the ground for a while and couple of them was on a nearby wagon.

There is once instance where there are two glowing green-eyed dead bodies in a house that has been viciously murdered with their clothes and skin torn. Either it was a robber that killed them or an infected person before then they start turning.

Now whether their implementation is of a DLC expansion of original Red Dead Redemption or just a limited time event for upcoming Halloween season is not clear to anyone yet but these piles of corpses are real source of spook.

Rockstar launched Undead Nightmare as a paid DLC with single-player missions, events as well as some multiplayer game modes on Halloween of 2010 and within the premise of Red Dead Online, something similar is very much possible.

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.

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.

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.
