Coronavirus may be slowly shutting down the world, but Red Dead Online's weekly updates give us something to look forward to!
Last week's update gave us the new Rank Rewards system, so perhaps this week we will once again have something for everyone across the Wild West.
Red Dead Online's next update has arrived.
Rockstar Games Twitter has announced the latest update, and it is a big one!
Showdown mode updates
A new Featured Series has been introduced to Red Dead Online with new Showdown Mode variations. Compete in a quartet of capture style modes, starting out with only a handful of Throwing Knives and a smattering of Shotgun pick-ups scattered across the fields of battle.
A new variation of this popular free-for-all Showdown Mode, where you start off with empty pockets but spawn next to a random weapon and must outlast all opposition. Oh, and you’ve only got but one life to do it with.
Maps: Annesburg Mine, Armadillo and Cemetery
