Today’s update to the Red Dead Online Beta introduces Gun Rush, where you’ll put your survival instincts to the test, gathering weapons and ammunition while the play area shrinks in this new mode for up to 32 players. Available to play now in Free-for-all and Team variations, where the last one standing wins.

Are the player numbers that bad? I honestly haven’t heard anything about that.
I don't have any actual numbers and I doubt rockstar is willing to share them with us, but barely a thousand viewers on twitch whilst games like battlefield v still rock their two to fivethousand concurrend viewers at least gives me a hint.

I've still never played a BR game or mode. I don't enjoy last man standing modes where I'm potentially dead early in the round and have to wait for the rest of the players to finish having their fun.

You know you can exit and start next game in a few seconds..
No, I've never played them. So when people die in a match they all just drop out and look for new matches? Makes sense I guess lol. But I feel like I'd want to stay with the same group of players, what if you're with friends?

On paper it sounds great but lock on aim only? I thought they'd disable that for multiplayer


Also a bit off topic but does Red Dead online actually have real matchmaking? or is it like GTA Online (at least back when I tried it) where if you want to play a specific game mode you have to invite other people who are in your "sessions" (and be ignored 99.9% of the time) with the only other option being to be sent to some random lobby where 90% of time it's either just one other player or someone who is waiting for his/her friends and instantly kicks you out?

After playing Blackout I'm in love with Battle Royale games even bought PUBG and getting my a$$ kicked on both pc and PSN (with the ps+bundle that is ) it feels like they are shoveling it into every game they can..can't wait for Kingdom Hearts III BR mode! Think of all the worlds they can connect together to make a big ass map! I'm goof(y)ing but it all seems forced and in a year or so fatigue really will set in an the only ones left standing will probably be PUBG and Fortnite and maybe this one as Rockstar doesn't release games often . Others that are attached to frequently released games like COD and Battlefield will probably just be dropped when the new one comes out especially if they add another BR..

Rockstar in panic mode since nobody plays this shitty ass microtransaction galore mp trainwreck.
you would think that after gta online and all the money they made they could have made a great online game for red dead online. But nope.. Hardly done at release. Calling it beta. then adding stupid microtransactions and pricing stuff ridiculously high. They really are a bunch of greedy basterds. I'm glad red dead online is tanking, they dont deserve the playerbase

Two completely different world environments though...there was no guarantee RDR2 online was going to be nearly as popular as GTA online. In fact i'd say most people including Rockstar themselves didn't think it would be as popular as GTA online.

Rockstars were never good at online/ multiplayers to begin with.

GTA 4 online was trash. They kinda lucked out on 5 and attempted the same success with RDR 2.

Nope. Not this time.

the pvp in this game is a complete mess. I feel like I'm playing a single player game, that just threw in multi player at the last second without even play testing it.
