'Red Dead Online' gets a 32-player battle royale mode

For more details on the latest update, head on over to Rockstar Games. Free-for-All, as the name implies, is every player for themselves, and Team will place players into small groups with the last team standing being crowned the victor.

Red Dead Redemption 2 developer Rockstar surprised fans with the surprise release of the Gun Rush game mode in a recent update.

Back in November, Rockstar launched a beta test for Red Dead Online, the online component of Red Dead Redemption 2.

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. You can either be a wild renegade and go solo or get some of your pals together to play it as a team and take on the world.

Finally, the studio reveals what we can expect from the game in the coming months.

These include Daily Challenges that will see you tackling a number of different scenarios, while the Law and Bounty systems are getting tweaked so that players will be slapped with a bounty for committing crimes and are encouraged to pay them off within a set time limit. So, what's changed as part of the Red Dead Online January update patch notes? "Wait too long and bounty hunters from each of the states will track the player forcing them either pay up or escape". It'll be easier to activate the Parley system so that you can get away from troublemakers, and player blips will appear at shorter distances so that trolls can't hunt you down quite so easily. It will now be much easier to activate Posse Feuds and Leader Feuds in more structured types of competition.

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.

Furthermore, Rockstar teased that as the year progresses they'll look to add new Dynamic Events, Showdown Modes, Races, weapons, and story missions to Red Dead Online. But it's not just about making what's already there better, it's about providing new experiences as well which is why Rockstar has announced their new Gun Rush Mode. That will remain the case for the foreseeable future, although the company has outlined some of the updates and new content that are on the way.
