Rockstar have released a new update for Red Dead Redemption 2 that introduces a brand new battle royale gamemode to the game’s online beta.

Red Dead Online’s newest update officially went live on Thursday, January 10, bringing with it a new way to play Rockstar’s wild west inspired title.


The mode called “Gun Rush” is a clear nod to the battle royale phenomenon that has swept through the gaming industry thanks to titles play PlayerUnknown’s Battleground and Epic Games’ smash hit Fortnite Battle Royale.

While most battle royale games featuring anywhere from 60 to 100 players, Red Dead Online’s Gun Rush is much lower, with a maximum of 32 players being able to to go head to head at one time.


The mode can be played as a single player or as part of a four man squad, although there is currently no duos option like other battle royale titles.

In Gun Rush, players will “put their survival instincts to the test, gathering weapons and ammunition while the play area shrinks,” much like Fortnite.

Gun Rush can be played as a solo or with a squad.

Alongside the introduction of the new game mode, Rockstar also revealed some changes that they hope to implement in future updates, such as daily challenges, upgrades to the Law and Bounty systems and changes to the Parley system.


Red Dead Online is currently in a beta phase, as Rockstar attempt to smooth out issues and glitches in the game before they officially roll it out later in 2019.

Gun Rush was released as part of an update on January 10, and is available to play on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 right now.

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.
