New Update Arrives for Red Dead Online, Adds Gun Rush Mode
Rockstar has dropped a new update for Red Dead Online, a part of the super-popular Red Dead Redemption 2 title.
The highlight of the update is the addition of a new mode that goes live today for Red Dead online, Gun Rush, a new 32-player mode .
Rockstar outlined the following:
- 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 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.
More to Come this year
- All-new missions to build on your Story in A Land Of Opportunities – from previously established characters like Horley and Jessica LeClerk, and some new ones as well.
- A range of Dynamic Events throughout the world

Character Roster for Dead or Alive 6
It’s been a lot to keep up with, but there is now a full list of characters that are a part of Dead or Alive 6 and you can check it out in this article.
Check out the list of available characters, courtesy of VG247:
- Ayane: the legendary purple-haired Kunoichi – and a series staple. She has a fast, furious and unpredictable fighting style.
- Bass: king of the ring professional wrestler ‘The Muscle’ Bass returns. He’s still riding his hog – and embarrassing daughter Tina.
- Bayman: Bayman is a Russian assassin best-known for his less-than-stealthy bright orange combat attire. He knows all sorts of CQC techniques that’d rival even Solid Snake…
- Brad Wong: drunken Master Brad Wong is always off his head, but that lets him use the wild, often confusing Zui Quan fighting style. He loves beer.
- Christie: the world of DOA is full of assassins, and none are perhaps as deadly as Christie and her Snake Fist fighting style. Plus, she’s a Brit. What’s not to love?
- Diego: newcomer Diego was raised on the rougher backstreets of New York City. As such, he’s got a rough-and-tumble street fighting style.
- Eliot: an orphan, Eliot was chosen to be the stole pupil of a martial arts master. Now, he competes in tournaments like DOA to prove his prowess.
- Hayabusa: video game royalty, Hayabusa is of course also known for Ninja Gaiden – and appropriately fights with the Hayabusa Style Ninjitsu.
Hayate: there are so many bloody ninjas in this game. Hayate uses Mugen Tenshin Ninjutsu – giving him swift, powerful moves.
Helena: in a sense Helena is partially to blame for all of this, since her father started the DOA tournament. She’s a skilled martial artist herself, fighting with the elegant Pi Gua Quan style.
Hitomi: half Japanese, half German, Hitomi is all Karate master, and is a solid balance all-around fighter, quite capable in all facets of combat.
Honoka: still a schoolgirl, Honoka is a kung-fu master in her own right, and has developed her own style that she rather originally called Honoka Fu.
Jann Lee: with a surname shared with his obvious inspiration Bruce, it’s easy to guess exactly how Jann Lee fights in DOA.
Kasumi: the Kunoichi of Destiny has an updated look for this latest addition to the series. She’s usually a good character for beginners, with a simple but varied move-set and strong strikes.
Kokoro: using the Ba Ji Quan fighting style, Kokoro’s elegant fighting rather resembles dancing – but it’s far more deadly than it looks, especially if she manages to throw you.
Mila: hailing from Spain, Mila represents a more modern form of fighting – the world of Mixed Martial Arts. She has an appropriately aggressive style, including a brutal ground game.
Leifang: series favorite Leifang is back with a new bright yellow outfit. Her fighting style seeks to turn the aggression and power of opponents back against them.
La Mariposa: also known as Lisa, this ex-professional wrestler still fights in her Lucha Libre fighting style – meaning you’ll spend a lot of time in the air.
Marie Rose: Swede Marie has ended up as Helena’s maid, but she’s pretty deadly for a maid, able to use the Russian Systema fighting style. She might be small, but she packs a serious punch.
Nico: newcomer Nico is a blue-haired scientist from Finland, and combines Pencak Silat – an old South-east Asian martial art – with technological gadgets. Doing so allows her to deal out serious damage.
Rig: in a very acute case of name-influencing-job, Rig was once a worker on an oil rig. Fair enough. He’s a Taekwondo master, and is more acrobatic and agile than his brute force looking appearance might suggest.
Tina: series favorite Tina is back with her all-around-solid professional wrestling style – and she’s finally stepping out of the shadow of her famous father.
Zack: dapper man Zack is now probably more famous for his exploits running a beach volleyball holiday paradise island, but he’s also a powerful Muay Thai fighter – though his style isn’t exactly conventional…

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Won’t Have Multi-Player Mode
From Software’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice won’t feature online multiplayer, as the company says that the game is “very much it’s own thing”, despite the overwhelming popularity with online multiplayer games today.
From Software’s Yasuhiro Kitao said that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice won’t feature the popular mode, adding that his team may revisit idiosyncratic-style multiplayer when they address future titles.
“Of course, we at From, we love those online elements,” Kitao said, during an interview in Game Informer.
“We love to create our own characters just as much as everyone else. We hope players are looking forward to something in the future where we might go back to that, but for now, Sekiro is very much its own thing.”
Although it’s a bit of a bummer, the game will finally have a Pause button, something that players have longed for.
