2018 saw the meteoric rise of the Battle Royale gameplay mode as games like Player Unknown’s Battleground and Fortnite burst onto the scene enamoring players all over the world where everyone wanted to test their mettle and prove to be the last one standing and be this year seems to be picking up on the same trend as more and more developers are adding this mode to their game.
Latest in the line to add this feature is Rockstar with Red Dead Online, this new mode was announced on 10th of Jan 2019, which will consist of 32 players battling out to be the last one standing in a map which keeps shrinking and players are to collect weapons and gun down their enemies.

Red Dead Online Battle Royale Mode Features
Rockstar followed the comment by announcing few changes that are coming soon:
Daily Challenges: Tackle new challenges each day covering every aspect of the game, from sharpshooting to evading the law.
Law and Bounty Upgrades: Some changes are coming to the way the Law and Bounty systems work in Red Dead Online to reduce the enticements for griefing. Soon, players will get a bounty for committing crimes and will be incentivized to pay them off within an allotted time. Wait too long and bounty hunters from each of the states will track the player forcing them to either pay up or escape.
Parley Changes: We’re making the Parley system easier to trigger so that you can avoid aggressive players more quickly. In addition, it will be easier to trigger Feuds, Posse Feuds and Leader Feuds to take on attacking players in the structured competition.
Proximity-Based Player Blips: Player location blips will soon appear only over short distances, reducing the range at which you are visible to others, decreasing the likelihood of being targeted by another player across large areas. Down the line, we’re also looking to introduce the ability to identify players who grief and kill indiscriminately with a progressively darkening blip that becomes more visible and at a longer range, so everyone in a session can identify potentially dangerous opponents at a glance and from a safe distance.
Rockstar further added stating that they are currently working on new missions to add to the existing storyline of existing characters and will introduce new ones with their own storyline, with that they are working on adding new events and modes which will include showdowns, races and weapons to the game to keep the players fixated on the title. The developers also clarified that Xbox One players can also now access the Red Chestnut Arabian Horse, Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle and the High Roller Double-Action Revolver in the Red Dead Online Beta.
