As early as August last year, the trustedreviews website reportedly reported leaked documents Red Dead Redemption 2 receive. After the pictures and information could not be confirmed for the time being, they withheld the information.
In the meantime, however, there are extremely similar images in the promotional material from Rockstar Games emerged, which at least confirms the authenticity of the pictures and thus also suggests the correctness of the remaining details.
The most significant note regarding the online modes of Red Dead Redemption 2. After the Online mode from Grand Theft Auto V is a long-term and profitable success, it was clear that RDR2 would get something similar.
- Battle Royale
- Revive and Survive
- Money grabs
Red Dead Redemption 2 - 3 online game modes
Battle Royale is not a big surprise after the huge success of PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS and Fortnite, of course Rockstar wants to jump on this path of success. The unusual setting in the Wild West could bring a new wind to the genre.
"Revive and Survive" - "Revive and Survive":
Here 2 teams should compete against each other and you only have a short time to revive your team members before they finally bless the temporal.
"Money Grabs" - It's not about rock star games robbing you of your money with microtransactions. Much more, the teams have to collect sacks of money and bring them back to their base. Of course, the opposing team interferes with you and you should also disrupt their efforts.
Furthermore, the leaked documents report details about the online mode. This should go far deeper than, for example: GTA V. Shop owners should clear their shop windows at night. Regularly there should be rewards for the players, which are there after completing certain tasks. Examples of this would be traveling a certain distance or killing an enemy with an arc from 100m away.
The ones known from GTA V Apartments should come back in the form of tents. These can be purchased by players in the open world and offer opportunities for improvement. You can also try to increase your fortune with gambling or with dealers in the new places
That sounds relatively believable, but as I said: everything has been unconfirmed so far Rumors.
Red Dead Redemption 2 appears on October 26, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A possible PC version has not yet been announced.
