Red Dead Online is one its second day of being live, and more players are being invited in to scour the hills and valleys of the wild west.

The plains and fields of Red Dead Online will see players interacting in a multitude of ways, such as banding together to create posses or betraying a fellow player for the sake of doing it.

The online portion of Red Dead Redemption 2 brings along five new modes to entice its players. Here’s a primer of all the game modes a player would find in Red Dead Online.

Rockstar GamesRed Online will be sheer chaos when it opens to everyone on Friday, November 30.

Hostile Territory splits the action across the map using control points. The team that holds a territory gets points, the more territories you control the more points you get. The team with more points at the end wins, or capture all territories to outright win the match.

Make It Count is a battle royale mode that fits right at home in outlaw country. This 32-player free-for-all gives contestants a bow with a meager amount of arrows and throwing knives to come out as the last one standing. In true battle royale fashion, the playable area shrinks as the game goes on.

Most Wanted will see players in a race to get most kills. However, as someone climbs the leaderboard, the reward for killing them increases, making them a hefty target.

Name Your Weapon brings certain guns into the fray. The caveat here is that more points are awarded based on gun a player uses.

Shootout & Team Shootout will host most of the gunfights. It’s all about kills here. Unlimited lives until the timer runs out. In the event of a tie, first kill wins.

The beta is not out for everyone yet, so far only players who bought the Ultimate Edition or played since day one have access. The beta goes live for everyone else Friday, November 30.

Two incredible gaming cosplayers came together to create their own versions of Red Dead Redemption’s Arthur and Sadie Adler — and the photos look like they’re straight out of the game.

The first Red Dead Redemption game came out in 2010 and immediately earned mass appeal, with the 2018 prequel keeping the franchise alive and fans flocking to the servers of the Western adventure game.

As with every popular game, film or TV show, though, fans have all different ways of honoring their favorites, and cosplayers are no exception.

Arthur and Sadie are a favorite of Red Dead fans.

We’ve seen some incredible cosplays in our time, but this one is really something special, with ‘maul_cosplay‘ creating his flawless take on protagonist Arthur Morgan.

That’s not all, though, as he also recruited female cosplayer ‘msskunk’ as Sadie, bringing the fan-favorite couple to life.

“RDR2 is my absolute favorite game and I think Arthur and Sadie should spend more time together,” maul said in his Instagram post. “That’s what the photos are about. Arthur and Sadie enjoying life and spending some quality time together.”

Arthur and Sadie’s relationship was an important one in Red Dead Redemption, and it would have been interesting to see their story developed further, and fans are definitely interested in seeing what occurs between the two — and the cosplay really showcases that. Not to mention, the outfits and setting are literally spot-on, and it’s almost impossible to find any difference between this and the characters themselves.

Both the photos and the cosplays themselves came out looking incredible, as if the characters were lifted right out of the game. Heck, you wouldn’t be laughed at for mistaking this for game art rather than just a photo of two cosplayers paying homage.

This isn’t the first of maul’s cosplays to make waves, with some brilliant looks taken from the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Borderlands 3’s Zane.

If you’re looking for great gaming cosplays, maul and msskunk might be one of the best places to look, since their attention to detail is sublime.
