Red Dead Online To Feature Story Missions and Battle Royale?

Red Dead Online is upon us and with that, the data miners have started mining for any piece of juicy information that they can get their hands on.

Thanks to Twitter user illogicalmods and his efforts, we now know that the game will have a Battle Royale mode called Make It Count. Make It Count will pit you against a full server(32 players) where you fight to be the last one standing by killing other players and by also staying in an ever-shrinking circle like in most Battle Royale games.

What’s surprising from the information leaked by illogicalmods is that there seems to be some sort of story-based missions that will affect your honour. GTA Online had missions that were set both before and after the events of the Single Player campaign but didn’t have any coherent story as such. In Red Dead Online, however, it seems like there might be some semblance of a story of sorts which is started by a character named Horley giving you the missions.

It will be very interesting to see how Rockstar tackles Red Dead Online in the long run. Will they add steampunk things to the game since they can add rocket bikes and jetpacks? What about weird mythical horses and other rideable beasts.

If you’re looking to get in on the Online action for Red Dead Redemption 2 then you can play it starting today on 27th November. If you played the game on Launch day then you will gain access to the Beta on 28th, if you played during the Launch Weekend then you will gain access on 29th and then on 30th everyone with the game will be able to play Red Dead Online.
