Red Dead Redemption 2

Rockstar has been tight-lipped about its upcoming Western action game Red Dead Redemption 2. Aside from a couple of trailers and a handful of screenshots, few details have been made available. There are obvious things we can glean from the released material, but we are really in the dark on the game's specific features.

Today, Trusted Reviews has reported it received documents regarding the title way back in August 2017, but withheld releasing the information until it was sure the details were accurate. The report includes details on multiplayer, side activities, gameplay features, and more.

Most notable is that the online aspect is sounding very meaty. We figured Rockstar would employ an approach similar to GTA Online, and that appears to be the case. You'll be able to explore the full open world when online, and can purchase tents - the equivalent of GTA V's apartments. Interestingly, some multiplayer modes described include a Battle Royale mode, which we can only assume will play similarly to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds or Fortnite. There will also be Revive and Survive, where you can revive teammates within a time limit, and Money Grab, which sees teams competing to retrieve sacks of cash from a central point.

Elsewhere in the report, we learn that a number of gameplay mechanics will return, such as Dead Eye and the morality system. There are also details on vehicles, a first person mode, horse riding challenges, fishing, crafting, and plenty more besides.

We can't be certain that this report holds any water, but it all sounds very plausible to us. We'll of course keep you updated on any new details as they emerge. You can take a look at the report for yourself through here.

What do you make of all these alleged details? Do you want a Battle Royale mode in Red Dead Redemption 2? Lasso your thoughts in the comments below.
