Red Dead Online Gets New Gun Rush Mode Today
Red Dead Online, the online multiplayer mode included in Red Dead Redemption 2, is getting a brand new play mode today.
The new mode is the Gun Rush mode that has been leaked a couple of weeks ago. 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.
Rockstar Games also confirmed that more updates will be coming soon to the game, introducing new features, tweaks, and changes.
Daily Challenges: Tackle new challenges each day covering every aspect of the game, from sharpshooting to evading the law.
Law and Bounty Upgrades: Some changes are coming to the way the Law and Bounty systems work in Red Dead Online to reduce the enticements for griefing. Soon, players will get a bounty for committing crimes and will be incentivized to pay them off within an allotted time. Wait too long and bounty hunters from each of the states will track the player forcing them to either pay up or escape.
Parley Changes: We’re making the Parley system easier to trigger so that you can avoid aggressive players more quickly. In addition, it will be easier to trigger Feuds, Posse Feuds and Leader Feuds to take on attacking players in structured competition.
Proximity-Based Player Blips: Player location blips will soon appear only over short distances, reducing the range at which you are visible to others, decreasing the likelihood of being targeted by another player across large areas. Down the line, we’re also looking to introduce the ability to identify players who grief and kill indiscriminately with a progressively darkening blip that becomes more visible and at a longer range, so everyone in a session can identify potentially dangerous opponents at a glance and from a safe distance.
More story content is also coming, as well as new weapons, clothing and more.
All-new missions to build on your Story in A Land Of Opportunities – from previously established characters like Horley and Jessica LeClerk, and some new ones as well.
A range of Dynamic Events throughout the world
Lots of new competitive modes including new Showdown Modes and Races
Plus new weapons and clothing, and lots more that we’re not quite ready to announce just yet…
Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
