Rockstar has announced that today’s updated for Red Dead Redemption 2’s multiplayer, Red Dead Online, will bring a battle royale mode.
Gun Rush sees 32 players battling it out in an ever-shrinking play area, with each combatant racing to find weapons and ammunition to take each other out. The last gunslinger standing wins. Gun Rush will be available in both free-for-all and team modes.
Is was heavily rumoured ahead of Red Dead Redemption 2’s release that Red Dead Online would feature a battle royale, the mode popularised by the enormous success of Fortnite. The game began with the ‘Make It Count’ mode, which was a survival mode with a shrinking play area, but was on a much smaller scale and gave its players bows and knives.
Gun Rush looks to bethe larger-scale, action-focussed spin on battle royale that was perhaps expected. The news comes as Rockstar detailed more of its upcoming plans for Red Dead Online.
