Red Dead Redemption 2 Leak

There has been a significant buzz regarding leaked information for Red Dead Redemption 2 that reveal gameplay details regarding missions, mechanics, online multiplayer modes, and story.

Two characters featured in the document, including main protagonist Arthur Morgan, were confirmed by official screenshots released by Rockstar. One character is named Dutch Van Der Linde, leader of self titled Dutch’s Gang, while the other appears to be Arthur Morgan.

According to the leak, Red Dead Redemption 2’s online component will feature the popular ‘Battle Royale’ game mode, alongside new modes such as  ‘Revive and Survive’ and ‘Money Grab’ modes.

It remains unknown whether Battle Royale will operate in a similar fashion to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or Fortnite, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Rockstar hopes to capitalise on the popularity of those two titles.

Revive and Survive pits two teams against each other as they try and stay alive. You’ll have a limited amount of time to revive your teammates before they are eliminated.

Finally, Money Grab features two teams fighting to procure bags of money in a central location. You’re expected to collect and return them to your base as quickly as possible.

The memo also states, much like GTA Online, players will be free to explore the open-world although it will supposedly provide far more depth than Rockstar’s previous online efforts. For example, NPCs will decorate storefronts with amenities and pack things away once night comes.

Frequent rewards will be handed out to players for completing certain tasks. These might range from traveling a certain distance to murdering an enemy using a bow from 100 metres away.

Apartments from GTA Online will return in the form of tents which can be owned and upgraded by players. These are purchased in the open-world and also come in a variety of different themes.

Online play will include access to a number of shops and NPCs which can provide the players with equipment and missions. Free Events can also be organised outside of standard playlists like spontaneous treasure hunts and deathmatches.

The development notes claim a companion app is in the works to launch alongside Red Dead Redemption 2 later this year. Alongside social elements, it will also include a poker minigame of sorts.

You will allegedly be able to partake in a variety of activities across the world of RDR2 such as gold-mining, fishing, herding and an assortment of weapon challenges.

Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay – new features?

The memo received by Trusted Reviews touches upon several new mechanics that will be a part of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Throughout the open world, you’ll discover several locations including Armadillo and Ridgewood. These are populated with various NPCs including general store owners, gunsmiths and undertakers. You can also partake in gambling if you’re hoping to risk it all for financial gain.

A Slums Market will apparently be a method of procuring equipment at a reduced price. You can expect NPCs to be navigating these places in accordance with RDR 2’s day/night cycle, too.

Vehicles in the game will include minecarts, handcarts and horse-drawn carriages. These come in different variants such as armoured and fast ones, although we’re unsure if you can customise them yourself.

The document hints at railway trains being available as modes of transport across the open world. In addition, they’ll be fully explorable with unique inhabitants and dialogue.

Aside from the solo campaign, details of which we won’t spoil, side activities will also be available.

Horsemanship challenges can be completed to increase your rider rank while dozens of different fish can be captured across the world.

Plants and herbs can be gathered for crafting purposes, with the document listing types including Clamshell, Ghost, Night Scented, Rat Tail and Spider Orchids.

You’ve also got fishing, which seems to be in-depth with a selection of baits and tackles available for purchase. You can even buy a can of worms.
