Red Dead Online har egen Battle Royale-modus.

Red Dead Online har fått «Battle Royale»-modus

En battle royale-lignende modus har vært ventet til Red Dead Online, og nå er den her. I betaen av onlinedelen har Rockstar nå lagt til et «Gun Rush»-modus som i bunn og grunn er battle royale.

For 32 spillere

Her må du lete etter våpen og ammunisjon, og holde deg i live mens spillområdet stadig blir mindre og mindre.

Riktignok er det «bare» for 32 spillere, noe som er betydelig mindre enn 100 samtidige spillere, slik flere andre spill har operert med.

I tillegg introduserer utviklerne nå daglige utfordringer, som dekker hvert aspekt av spillet, for eksempel skarpskyting eller å rømme fra lovens lange arm.

Rockstar skriver på sine nettsider at spillet vil være i beta i noen måneder til før det vil kalles ferdig.

Her er Rockstars oversikt over kommende oppdateringer:

  • 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.

Oppdateringer som kommer senere i år:

  • All-new missions to build on your Story in A Land Of Opportunities – from previously established characters like Horley and Jessica LeClerk, and some new ones as well.
  • A range of Dynamic Events throughout the world
  • Lots of new competitive modes including new Showdown Modes and Races
  • Plus new weapons and clothing, and lots more that we’re not quite ready to announce just yet…
