The fact that Red Dead Online added two battle royale modes - with one being more traditional while the other being more innovative - speaks to the popularity of the genre.

For players looking for another reason to dive back into Red Dead Online this is a great reason to.

As is the custom with Battle Royale gameplay, players are expected to kill each other off; once they are eliminated from the field, they must wait "out of bounds" until the session is complete.

Compared to Online's initial last-man standing mode, Make It Count, on the surface, Gun Rush shapes up closer to a conventional battle royale: players are forced to scavenge for weapons, rather than spawning with, say, a bow and arrow and then being unable to pick up anything else. Have you played Gun Rush yet?

It seems that not even Red Dead Redemption is immune from one of gaming's most ubiquitous trends.

Rockstar Games' announcement includes more than just Gun Rush. Once the patch is installed on your chosen platform, you only need to load the game up for the changes to take effect.

A new update will add a "Fortnite"-style battle royale mode called Gun Rush to Red Dead Online, along with some quality of life improvements". Please note we are referring to the online mode (Red Dead Online), as told in the title.

Foremost is the addition of new Daily Challenges, which will cover different aspects of the game and incentivize players with rewards.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was released in October to much acclaim, with its multiplayer component, Red Dead Online, launching in late November.

The bounty system will change to reduce griefing by boosting the incentives to quickly pay off bounties. Failure to do so will result in bounty hunters from each of the states hunting the player down, forcing them to either pay their dues or try to escape.

Player location blips are also going to be refined so that they only appear over short distances, meaning you'll be less likely to be seen, and therefore targeted, over longer distances. Eventually, Rockstar wants to identify players who grief and kill indiscriminately with a progressively darkening blip that's visible over a longer range to alert others of potentially unsafe players.

Later, Rockstar will introduce more missions in the Horley and Jessica LeClerk arc, along with some new faces.
