Red Dead Redemption 2 Set to Include Battle Royale Mode

Further leaks from the memo received by Trusted Reviews claims the entire campaign and online mode will be playable in first-person, too (which again makes sense if you think about GTA Online's PS4/Xbox One update allowing that functionality).

As for the other two, "Revive and Survive" will apparently work like Team Deathmatch, but players are given limited opportunities to revive teammates before they get killed for good. This week, new details on the game have emerged - but not from the hands of Rockstar.

That's not all! The latest Red Dead Redemption 2 leak reveals a ton of exciting stuff.

Elsewhere, Red Dead Redemption 2 will offer its own take on GTA Online's apartments in the shape of tents.

Just like Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2 will have an online component. Battle Royale mode seems to suggest that it may be similar to "PlayerUnknown's Battleground" or "Fortnite".

Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to launch on October 26, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The former is clearly a mode that takes a page out of the PUBG/Fortnite book, but it's perhaps doubtful that it will actually play exactly like that in Red Dead Redemption 2.

The report also mentions vehicles (customizable minecarts, handcarts, and carriages, and fully explorable trains), gameplay features (first-person and third-person perspectives available for both singleplayer and multiplayer), and branching narratives dependent on player actions during campaign missions. I imagine future takes on BR will continue to expand on the mode that PUBG pushed into the mainstream, making their own additions to it and continuing to flawless it. Fortnite dumbed down the shooting and introduced simplified crafting, which has a game-changing impact on how firefights play out. As per documents pertaining to the game obtained by Trusted Reviews, the open-world Wild West game will sport substantial multiplayer options.

The playlist format is returning, and the memo mentions three game modes in Battle Royale, Revive and Survive, and Money Grab.

Trusted Reviews revealed today that, in August 2017, they received documents containing a trove of information and unreleased info about Red Dead Redemption 2.

It's worth noting that until Rockstar confirm this information, it's worth taking with a pinch of salt.

Lastly, Money Grab supposedly features two teams fighting for bags of money at a specific location. Players can organise random events like Death Matches and Treasure Hunts, there'll likely also be bounties coming to the game though this is just speculation at this point.

You can check out new Red Dead Redemption 2 screenshots in the gallery above. Destiny 2 has a similar game mode to this called "Survival". That being said. this is Rockstar and they like to keep us on our toes.
