Man it has been a slow month for gaming. Is it just me or is or is there a lack of juice this fall season. Fall used to be about AAA titles generating a ton of buzz. Maybe it’s because new consoles are a year away and publishers are keeping everything in their pants. Because of this, I have not been writing as much, but finally there is something intriguing that is happening, thanks to Rockstar Games.
Red Dead Online players have been spotting NPCs that look a little worse for the wear. Some have speculated that this is a glitch, but come on, I know a fucking zombie when I see one.
The original Undead Nightmare was an expansion for Red Dead Redemption back in 2010. That title just so happened to be released right around Halloween time.
Coincidence? I think not.
Red Dead Online is not good. There, I said it. Oh, how I wanted it to be good. Once I completed the wonderful single player, I dipped my toe into the multiplayer beta, just to be utterly disappointed by how crappy it was and never returned. Has it improved since then? I don’t know and don’t care
However, during Take-Two’s quarterly earnings call, they claim that Rockstar’s latest cowboy open-world multiplayer thing is actually performing better than GTA Online did during the same respective stage.
For what it’s worth, I thought GTA Online was shit too and underwhelming compared to the fun single-player version of the game.
I see a theme here. If Take-Two and Rockstar want me to go back to playing Red Dead Redemption 2, give me single player DLC. I will gladly pay for it. Let me play as Sadie Adler, that sassy bounty hunter with a heart of gold that survived the main story. Let’s she what shenanigans she gets into.
Red Dead Redemption 2, which is on track for an October 26, 2018 release date may have some interesting new modes and features, if a leaked memo from Rockstar Games is to be believed.
According to the website TrustedReviews.com, who are in possession of leaked notes from the developer, new online features and modes are in the works, including a Battle Royale mode, a team-based shootout mode known as Fight and Revive, and a Money Grab mode.
Trusted Reviews claims that they have had this information since the summer of 2017, and have held onto it until they were able to corroborate the leak with additional sources, so take this rumor for what it is worth.

The game looks like a stunner, which is not all that surprising.
