‘Red Dead Online’ Adds Battle Royale Mode & More in New Update

For more details on the latest update, head on over to Rockstar Games.

Xbox One gamers, however, can now get the Red Chestnut Arabian horse, alligator skin ranch cutter saddle, and High Roller double-action revolver - items that were only exclusively available to PS4 players up to this point.

Available in both Free-for-All and Team variants, Gun Rush is a 32-player competitive mode in which the one and only goal is to be the last person (or team) standing. Gun Rush is definitely more like a traditional battle royale mode in that regard, as you'll actually have the chance to use weapons that fire bullets.

The new mode is the Gun Rush mode that has been leaked a couple of weeks ago.

More updates to the Red Dead Online beta are in the works, including Races and Showdown Modes, along with new clothing and emotes.

This includes daily challenges such as sharpshooting and evading the law. 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.


Law and Bounty systems are being altered to "reduce the enticements for griefing".

The post reads: 'Soon, players will get a bounty for committing crimes and will be incentivised to pay them off within an allotted time. The ability to identify particularly aggressive players is set to be introduced too, via a "darkening blip" which will make you more visible from a longer range to those in the area.

Player dots on the map will soon only be visible over short distances, reducing the likelihood of being targeted across large areas. Have you played Gun Rush yet?

One of the few more lukewarm reviews of the video game came from Slant Magazine, who hailed the game for its ambition and scope but found relatively little depth to it.

"We are working on lots of new content that we will be releasing this year". That doesn't mean content updates will stop, because Rockstar already has a bunch of new missions, stories and dynamic events it will be bringing into its version of the Wild West.

In addition, Forbes also offered up another very positive review for Red Dead Redemption II, lauding, like many other reviewers, its engrossing open world and memorable gameplay.
