Though Rockstar never actually used the word Battle Royale in the description, the mode was very clearly inspired by the game type and could have even possibly been a testing ground for what could be potentially coming in Red Dead Redemption 2. Our friend at TrustedReviews got their hands on some Red Dead Redemption 2 leaked documents (they got access to it way back in August 2017, sharing it now after confirming that the details in it are legit). Certainly the screenshots they first received back in August previous year hold up to the ones released for promotional material since then.
According to leaked documents obtained by Trusted Reviews, Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to once again offer a robust online experience, though this time it's also bringing a Battle Royale style mode with it.
So given how on the pulse of gaming trends Rockstar can be, it's entirely possible they seek to capitalise on the popularity of a burgeoning sub-genre.
Red Dead Redemption is scheduled for release on PS4 and Xbox One on 26 October 2018. It's a change that turns the mode completely on its head, and I'm interested to see what innovations other developers will make. Modes such as Domination and Zombies have started out being explicitly linked to one particular franchise before going on to be included in a variety of other games, so why can't the same thing happen to Battle Royale? Players must then collect them and return them to their bases as quickly as they can.
The remaining details largely consist of returning features from the original Red Dead Redemption.
Colts hire McDaniels as new coach
What a game, just an incredible Super Bowl with ups and downs for both the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles . While there are some concerns about Luck's health, McDaniels must have confidence that he will be ready for next season.
United, 'Busby Babes' & a tragedy
The service is set to commence at 2.40pm, with a minute's silence at 3.04pm to the mark the time of the disaster. I played, and at one point Liam gave me a lovely pass that meant I couldn't miss.
Netherlands name Ronald Koeman as new manager on deal until 2022
That has given him time to spend back home in the Netherlands , drawing hope from watching young players in the Eredivisie. He was sacked by Everton in October, two months into his second season in charge.
Players will able to gather materials such as plants and herbs for crafting. There's some more information listed over at Trusted Reviews, so make sure to check it out for the full breakdown. There's also mention of fishing, with players able to buy bait and tackle!
Perhaps most interesting, however, is that you can apparently play the game's main story and multiplayer mode in first-person view, complete with bespoke animations to accommodate this fresh perspective. Rockstar already introduced first-person mode in "Grand Theft Auto V", so players should expect a similar experience. "While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish". "Details are sketchy, but it will feature bounty hunting quests, treasure hunts and adventures with a mysterious stranger".
Specific player actions during campaign missions apparently have a form of branching paths. There's a reason why publishers are looking to invest in the mode, and that's because it's a genius spin on multiplayer that can grant games more longevity.
The Wanted level is in, scaling up and down dependent on player behaviour as ever.
Injuring enemies or knocking them off their horse while in pursuit will trigger dialogue options. The last big thing, persistent online worlds a la Destiny, is much more hard to maintain than throwing a bunch of players in survival arena and telling them to have at it.
