Red Dead Redemption 2 Battle Royale Mode And Other Big Leaks

Red Dead Redemption 2 Battle Royale Mode And Other Big Leaks

According to a bunch of developer notes obtained by the site, the sequel to 2010 smash hit Red Dead Redemption will support an extensive online component, which is made up of Battle Royale, Revive and Survive, and Money Grab modes.

Developed by the creators of GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America's unforgiving heartland, the game's vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

Trusted Reviews received some development documents a while back and shared today several new details on the game. The last big thing, persistent online worlds a la Destiny, is much more hard to maintain than throwing a bunch of players in survival arena and telling them to have at it.

Lastly, Rockstar seems to be preparing a companion app for smartphones which will launch alongside "Red Dead Redemption 2".

Rockstar will reward players for completing certain tasks, medal-style: you could receive rewards for traversing a set distance or landing a kill with a bow from 100m, for example.

Other juicy details include a bevy of vehicles up for grabs, such as minecarts, handcarts, and horse-drawn carriages, all of which come in armoured flavours too.

Side activities will include poker, horsemanship and fishing, alongside a robust craftting system.

It looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 will be joining the "battle royale revolution", if reports from Trusted Reviews are to be believed. This seems fairly credible as GTA V/Online implemented a first-person mode after its transition to current gen consoles. Random Events seemingly inspired by GTA V's Strangers and Freaks will also be a thing, while Eagle Eye is making a comeback with new abilities such as letting you track bounties through fields and detecting nearby animals. Both games have achieved massive player numbers and continue to evolve in order to retain those monster numbers. Apparently, there will be times in the campaign when a player's action can affect the way the story unfolds. We're talking about choices that could potentially alter the outcome of a mission.

Now Red Dead Redemption 2 Battle Royale is said to be on its way, which will inevitably open up the floodgates and lay down the groundwork for other publishers. The game was originally supposed to ride into town last autumn, but Rockstar delayed the game until Spring, saying "extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans".

Red Dead Redemption 2 is expected to have a first-person mode like GTAV.
