Rockstar announced today that Red Dead Redemption 2’s Red Dead Online beta will continue “for a few more months,” but with the news comes a new mode that players can start playing today.

That mode, Gun Rush is a battle royale mode (of course) that will focus on the more of the scavenging and gun aspects of the battle royale genre. Rockstar previously released Make It Count, a battle royale mode that removed the guns and instead focused in knives and bows.

The new mode will feature 32-player battles and will require you to gather guns and ammunition to dispatch your foes.

It is available in both solo and team variations. Just like all of your other battle royale titles on the market, as the time expires and players get eliminated, the circle will continue to grow smaller, pushing the remaining players closer and closer together.

Other updates coming to Red Dead Online

In addition to the new Gun Rush mode, Rockstar is also working on some additional features that will roll out soon for Red Dead Redemption 2’s online portion. These include new daily challenges and changes to some already-implemented systems. These systems include changes to the Law and Bounty systems, as well as Parley changes.

Rockstar notes, “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.” As far as the Parley system goes, players will be able to quickly trigger the feature to avoid confrontation with other players.

It’s good to see Rockstar is actively tweaking the online portion of the game and listening to player feedback, but with how little I enjoy GTA Online, I’ll think I’ll stick to single-player for now.
