A massive Red Dead Redemption 2 leak has surfaced revealing all on the game’s upcoming online modes as well as some single player details too.
While Rockstar is yet to comment on whether Red Dead Redemption 2 would include an online mode similar to GTA Online, this new leak seems to suggest it will and with it will be a number of different online game modes including, wait for it, Battle Royale mode.
The leak comes via Trusted Reviews who received information back in August. The reason for the time between is because information in the documents received by the site have recently been corroborated by recent press material from Rockstar themselves.
So, Read Dead Redemption 2’s online mode is set to include three game modes according to the leak, one being a Battle Royale mode, which will likely work similar to the recent hits, PUBG and Fortnite. There’ll also be Revive and Survive and Money Grab modes, the former being a sort of death match mode, and the latter being a sort of capture the flag style mode with money bags being the main objective.
The information also reveals that Red Dead Redemption 2 will also feature a free-roam mode similar to GTA Online however the information claims it’ll be “far more in-depth” than previous efforts. It looks as if the world will be more reactive to time of day than GTA Online (i.e. stores will be closed and packed away at night).
As for living accommodation, players will be able to purchase tents which come in various shapes, sizes, and styles. Basically, think GTA Online but in a western world. 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.
Vehicles will also be in the game too that’ll come in the form of minecarts, handcarts and horse-drawn carriages, though there is no word on customisation right now. The information also revealed that the game will have a companion app of sorts that’ll feature social elements and a mini card game.
Trusted Reviews’ offers plenty more information around the game’s story mode including the ability to play in first person, as well as the story itself taking dramatic turns depending on who players interact with. You can read the full report over on the Trusted Reviews website.
It’s worth noting that until Rockstar confirm this information, it’s worth taking with a pinch of salt.
