Red Dead Online Beta Game Modes Revealed

The Red Dead Online beta began today as those following Red Dead Redemption 2 may have already been aware. Players that purchased the Ultimate Edition were awarded a first-access pass to the previously announced beta. Save for the dates in which the doors open for the Red Dead community, the details have been relatively scarce. In a brand new update, Rockstar Games reveals all you need to know to prepare for the ultimate cowboy shooting, multiplayer experience and that includes all the game modes players get to explore.

According to Rockstar, Red Dead Online “will be a continually expanding experience.” During the beta period, there will be frequent updates and patches to sort out potential problems with servers, bugs, and even new additions along the way. Starting November 30th, the beta will be open to the public. Want to know what kind of game modes you can expect? Check it out below:

Red Dead Online Beta Game Modes

  • Shootout & Team Shootout
    • Classic gunfight modes with unlimited lives. Compete to rack up the most kills before the timer runs out. Sudden death will trigger in the event of a tie: whoever gets the first kill wins.
  • Make it Count
    • A true test of resourcefulness in two game modes: use nothing but a bow and a handful of arrows or throwing knives to be the last one standing. With a gradually shrinking player area, there’s nowhere to run.
  • Most Wanted
    • A tactical race to the top. Every kill pushes you up the scoreboard, but watch out: the closer to the top you are, the more points everyone else gets for killing you.
  • Hostile Territory
    • Work in teams to control the land. Capture a territory to start racking up points: the team with most points wins – or you can win outright by capturing every territory.
  • Name your Weapon
    • Demonstrate your personal specialty in this free-for-all or team based match: the trickier the weapon you use to land the killing blow, the more points you get.

In addition to the five various modes to explore, players can posse up with friends, set up camp, participate in the “cooperative story-based mission,” get competitive, or do various other extracurricular activities like fishing, hunting, and more. You can even customize your own character. Players may choose to live an honorable life or one as an outlaw in Red Dead Online.
