If you have the Ultimate Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 you can finally get started in Red Dead Online from today! The multiplayer segment of Rockstar’s western title is bursting with content and data miners have nicely exposed it, which Wimpie then put in this packed article!
Multiple game modes of Red Dead Online have been uncovered by data miners, proving there’s plenty to do in Rockstar’s virtual Wild West, including a Battle Royale mode! We have listed all alleged game modes for you.
The first and most eye-catching mode is Make it Count, the Battle Royale mode from Red Dead Online. All the known ingredients of this winner takes all mode are present: a large number of players, a shrinking circle on a large map and a limited number of weapons. The leaked data shows that throwing knives and bows and arrows are among the selection of weapons. Maps mentioned by Make it Count are Strawberry, Stillwater Creek, and Tall Trees.
Most Wanted and Team Shootout are Red Dead Online’s Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes, respectively. A nice addition to Most Wanted, however, is that the higher a player is ranked, the higher the bounty that is turned upside down. Maps for this mode are Saint Denis, Tall Trees, Thieves Landing, Tumble Weed, and Valentine.
The mode Name Your Weapon is all about earning points by making kills with a specific weapon, so kills with fat strong weapons will earn you less points. At locations such as Lanik Electrical, Tall Trees, Heartland Oil Field, Fort Mercer and Annesburg, the battle breaks out. We can already see Wouter running around with nothing more than his clenched fists to beat up other players …
Red Dead Online is obviously nothing without it horse racing! These can be played in different ways: classic racing with a number of laps, driving from one point to another or a speed battle with checkpoints that can be achieved in a random order.
Time for a story
If you know GTA Online a little, you probably know that Rockstar also provides its online world with the necessary story missions. This part of Red Dead Online has also been discovered by the data miners, what they have found so far about the Red Dead Online campaign you can read below.
The story missions in Red Dead Online appear to be related to a man named Horley. He keeps sending you to certain people in the world who have missions for you. During many missions you will face moral dilemmas that will determine the fate of NPCs. These dilemmas, just like in Arthur’s story, are related to an Honor level.
The mission Highly Illegal and Highly Immoral is all about the hunt for Alfredo Montez. We don’t know who this guy is yet, but Marshall Davies still has a bone to pick with him, so he must have been quite naughty. Honor Among Horse Thieves is -what’s in the name- stealing and trading tubers. Rogue horse dealer Clay Davies is central to this mission and he will likely make you proficient in this lucrative business.
If the Hat Fits … is all about tracking down an outlaw at the request of the police chief in Blackwater. ‘Whether or not justice will be done depends on your Honor’ is given as the description. This is probably a different kind of Honor level than in the single player campaign, but this has not yet been confirmed. In Kerosene, Tar and Greed Horley sends you to a Samson Finch in Dewberry Creek. This man has a bill to settle with someone and you are the person to get the job done.
Kill Them, Each and Every One is a revenge mission you carry out south of Armadillo for a widow whose husband has been murdered. The killer may be hiding in the area. The last mission mentioned is Love and Honor. The Sheriff of Tumbleweed needs your help in rescuing a young woman kidnapped by outlaws. Her husband is desperate. Moral consideration is again a necessity in this mission.
If you want to view all the data again, the data miners from IllogicalMods have of course shared them on social media. The list gives you an indication of what to expect in Red Dead Online, but just like in GTA Online, the Red Dead variant will receive a lot more content over the coming period. What are you waiting for? Assemble your posse and take the Wild West of Rockstar completely unsafe in Red Dead Online!
