Red Dead Online Receives a Brand-New Mode Called Gun Rush

Red Dead Online Receives a Brand-New Mode Called Gun Rush

While this is the only major new component of today's update to Red Dead Online, Rockstar promises that more improvements and additions are in the pipeline.

This builds upon Red Dead Redemption 2's overall multiplayer experience, after its Online mode entered beta at the end of November, 2018. This mode doesn't sound much different than the Make It Count mode, with players having to scavenge weapons on the map while trying to stay alive, with the map progressively shrinking, in true Battle Royale fashion.

The Gun Rush Battle Royale mode is out now on PS4 and Xbox One. "Available to play now in Free-for-all and Team variations, where the last one standing wins", the official press release reads.

As for the status of Red Dead Online, Rockstar has stated it will be keeping the game in beta for the next few months. Of course, with the popularity of the genre nowadays mixed with the pull that Red Dead Redemption 2 has had since releasing last October, this shouldn't be that shocking of a revelation. Riding on horseback makes you a bigger target to fortified players.

Another very positive review came from US Gamer, which lauded its "absolutely attractive open world" with the few drawbacks in the game being the occasional bugs and the somewhat tedious travel across the game world at times.

Daily Challenges: These challenges will cover every aspect of the game, from shooting to running from the law. Also on the table are Law and Bounty Upgrades for those who within the rules of engagement, akin to an honor system. Players will be given a bounty for committing "crimes" and will be prompted to pay it within a given time, otherwise bounty hunters will come after them. Feuds, Posse Feuds, and Leader Feuds all being made more easier to trigger so that you'll be able to better avoid more aggressive players, which is good to know.

Player location marks are facing minor tweaks, which will "reduce the range to which you are visible to others".

Plus new weapons and clothing, and lots more that we're not quite ready to announce just yet. While Rockstar gets to work on fixes, Red Dead Online will have some new content introduced as well.

The developer teased Races and Showdown modes are in the pipeline too, while they're also working on "dynamic events", new weapons, clothing and all-new story missions.
