With Red Dead Online's beta set to launch later this month, it's no surprise that Red Dead Redemption 2's online counterpart is having a few leaks. It began with the Adversary mode leak via the companion app and has extended further, including the online element's playable modes.
The current list sits only at Mission, Deathmatch, and Race, with the latter likely to be a well-received featured, as it will likely take advantage of the advanced horse mechanics of Red Dead Redemption 2. However, the leak has also revealed more game modes that simply aren't available in the game yet including Survival, Capture, Last Team Standing, and Parachuting.
While these modes seem very typical and self-explanatory, there are a few key notes of interest in this leak. Feud, Leader Feud, and Predator Ability are all related to gameplay in some manner, though it's really anyone's guess as to how.
Also, in a manner similar to Grand Theft Auto Online, it's confirmed that players will have a few options when killed by another player and/or dealing with an aggressive player: Respawn, Inform Law, Duel, and Parley. This confirms that players will be able to duel each other in the western-themed title, which may excite many who are planning on delving into this multiplayer mode.
One last thing worth mentioning is that the intro cutscene to Red Dead Online involves a prison breakout, and so like Grand Theft Auto Online, it seems likely that this multiplayer function will feature some type of character creation as opposed to Red Dead Redemption's set character list. Regardless, players shouldn't expect anything vulgar from other players in this game mode, as Rockstar has compiled a comprehensive list of banned words for its latest western title.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
