Red Dead Redemption 2 leak reportedly reveals Battle Royale mode, first-person setting and details about online and single player
The leak comes from the folks over at Trusted Reviews, who claim they were sent development notes back in August 2017. They now believe the notes to be genuine following Rockstar's official unveiling of some new screenshots.
Money Grab tasks two teams with with grabbing sacks of cash from a central location and returning them to their own base as fast as possible, whilst preventing their opponents from doing the same.
The notes also state that the multiplayer open world will be much deeper than GTA Online's, with NPCs decorating storefronts and packing things away at night, as a couple of examples.
Other rumoured features include frequent rewards given for reaching certain milestones, upgradeable tents which serve a similar purpose to GTA's apartments, a number of shops and NPCs which provide missions and items, and a wide variety of activities such as fishing, herding, gold mining, gambling and weapon challenges.
Minecarts, handcarts and horse drawn carriages are stated to be available as transport options, with trains being hinted at too.
Reportedly being added to the series is the ability to play both the main campaign and online portion from a first-person perspective, Random Events (think GTA V's Strangers and Freaks missions), and contextual dialogue that will allow players to spare an injured enemy’s life in exchange for information or cold, hard cash.
The leak also suggests that choices made during missions could lead to different outcomes.
There's a lot to take in, though do keep in mind that it’s all just speculation for now.
