Red Dead Online is going to stay in beta for a few more months according to Rockstar but that won’t stop them pushing out loads of content for it, including a new game mode that goes live today.
Gun Rush has 32 players fighting for ammo and guns in an ever decreasing play area and the last player alive wins. The game already has a smaller Battle Royale mode called Make It Count but this new mode sounds closer to a standard run and gun Battle Royale mode.
“More updates are coming soon,” say Rockstar and this will include Races and Showdown modes., new clothing and emotes, “as well as some additional changes based on player feedback:”
- 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.
Additionally Xbox One players can also now get the Red Chestnut Arabian Horse, Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle and the High Roller Double-Action Revolver, all of which were timed exclusives for PlayStation.
