In line with its continuous support for Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Beta
, Rockstar has recently introduced a new feature to the ongoing test. Gun Rush which is a 32-player Battle Royale mode comes integrated with the common features like a shrinking play area along with "the last man standing wins" principle found in the iconic genre. Aside from that, the update also brought some player feedback-based changes in some of the game's mechanics (see below)
- 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.
Even better is that Rockstar also made a short overview of the upcoming features coming to the online mode of the highly-acclaimed game. Some of which include new missions, Dynamic Events, new competitive modes, new weapons, clothing and so much more! Check out gameplay footage taken from the new mode below courtesy of YouTuber coreross and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
