Red Dead Online Next Updates Speculation Thread

Recommended Posts

i wish pvp modes should be a bit more creative. fist/melee fight deathmatch in a saloon would be epic. or a fight club 1on1, ehile the others are watching (tournament mode1) or a duell tournament. westernsetting with all the stereotypes has so much potential for gamemodes

Agreed. They could start by at least letting us choose game mode. I don't even play showdowns anymore as I hate name your weapon and hostile territory

Anyone. Quick question. I still haven't update my RDR2. Wondering if its even worth it because of the new bugs, or should I just finish the story first then update to play RDO.. IDK.....

If they don’t release different lobby types like the original with Friendly, Normal and Hardcore, I don’t give a crap about anything else.

I think they won't because certain trophies affects PVP. I.E. Interrupt other posse mission.

Lol, that makes no sense. You could still interrupt them and get these trophies in Hardcore sessions (which would be public obviously, just like in the first Red Dead Redemption) or by going up against each other in posse/invite lobbies. I don't see how it would be accounted as cheating or boosting a trophy/achievement. 

 

On a side note, I do too have doubts that we'll ever see lobby options, I just have a very odd feeling R* doesn't care about that sorta feedback. But watch 'em "fixing" the economy again next up... yay* :bored:

GTA has solo/invite sessions too though, and there's plenty of trophies to get in public. Doomsday Heist comes to mind as in order to complete those trophies we have to do the prep jobs in public only sessions.

 

If we want the combat based trophies, we have to step out of other sessions and into one where we can get them from.

This is a far cry from the old GTA hype trains. I'm hopeful for the update though - still some important stuff that needs adding, but it's something.

 

I wonder what time it drops?

RDO hype train

E: It is kind of sad. I remember the Next DLC Speculation thread over in the GTAO section on the days updates like Import/Export dropped. 600+ people viewing just one thread, multiple posts per second, banter, excitement, the usual suspects getting temp bans for trolling.

 

Today there's like 70 people, of which only 20 are members who can post, viewing the whole RDO section. It's sad.

 

I'm not trying to compare today's update to a major GTAO update when it was in its prime. But it is an indication of the almost complete lack of interest in RDO.

Can't wait to see these Daily Challenges. Most expected part of update for me. But sh*t, with this update R* also bring to us new pile of bugs, while they didn't fixed old, that's for sure. I only hope this pile will be not too big.

A large part of it is Red Dead’s always going to have a smaller playerbase due to being a more niche game. It’s the old west, not a modern cosmopolitan city. There’s only so much you can do in an 1899 setting. Meanwhile GTA is 201x, and thus can have anything added from today backwards and from tomorrow onwards. Far more people are interested in the AMG Project One and some light-up fashionable jacket than there are with the Sharps 1874 and a Lusitano/Friesian. 

 

Also. That train makes me sad to see it rot away

I don't even know why to be honest. It's not that bad lol. Needs more content, and a few key missing features/options - that's it really. Maybe a couple of tweaks like better spawning. To be fair it does need a lot of new content though. This next update is only a drop in the ocean in regards to what it needs. Should give it some life though.

 

I guess partly it's just because there's not really that much to speculate on. Got some idea on what they might add with a GTA update. This - not so much.

GTA:O gets more attention during the tunabowls than this, lol.

 

I hope it gets better, but with such limited choice in an already niche game, R* are giving the game so much less of a chance, IMO.

@éX-DriverYeah, I fully appreciate all that, it is, and was always going to be a far more niche game compared to GTAO.

 

The relative lack of interest still comes as a surprise to me though. I knew it wouldn't be as popular, but this unpopular? Didn't see it coming.

 

R* have seriously misjudged the release of RDO, imo anyway.

With GTA you get to just sit back and wait for one of hundreds of people to tell you when it's ready to download. Will probably have to keep an eye on it myself this time lol.

 

I've got a decent feeling about this update, but they've got to keep tending to the game. Ideally free mode should be really packed full of stuff. Right now we don't even have small things.

This might have a lot to do with it. As you say, not really that much to speculate on.

 

Also, most of us fully expect R* to go down a similar line to GTAO. There's no surprise or wow factor attached to properties or freeroam businesses etc. we expect it, we have an idea of how they will work. Been there. Done it. Got the t-shirt.

That's true - maybe once there's been a few, then we'll kind of have the rough idea of what each update's shaped like, have some base on what to guess for.

 

As for now, seems like we're the only ones here lol.

Hopefully there will be new Story missions at some point in the near future, because that's the only thing I'm interested in.

@ALifeOfMisery

you can’t forget the majority of GTAO players are probably age 15 and under. Or at least a good percentage of them are. I guarantee 80% of those kids either only played part of RDR3 or didn’t even pick it up. And I’d wager a large portion of RDR3’s playerbase is over the age of 25. People with fulltime jobs and responsibilities and probably even a young family. They simply don’t have the time to throw hours daily into an online mode in the hopes they add some content in a few months. They’ve got better things to do and more fun games to play. 

 

It’s like asking why IL2: Battle of Stalingrad isn’t as popular as Ace Combat or War Thunder.

I like the story missions, in the most part anyway. 

 

I actually think that's where we'll see things like a bank robbery first, as part of a story mission.

R* somewhere on Newswire told that they will make further story missions for their Land of Opportunity timeline, but when... Maybe summer, or maybe fall, who knows, i think for now even they don't.

The chances of actual player bounty hunting is probably low, I know it's just gonna be an excuse to have GTA style overpowered cops - but if we get player bounty hunting in this update, that'd be a nice feature early on. Really needs to get some deeper stuff early on too.

 

Edit: I picture the blips making free mode more exciting though. Or maybe just wishful thinking.

I think they'll create a lot, and I mean a lot, of B&M material today, and over the coming week or two maybe.

 

Griefers will be out there camping butchers immediately today, of that I have no doubts. But as a little time passes and constant bounties start depleting their funds and the more persistent griefers end up with almost permanently (I hope) visible blips I think the proximity blips will have an overall positive influence on gameplay.

About bounty hunters. There is one thing that i'm worried about: in Story mode bounty hunters can be looted and they always have jewerly in their pockets, so, if R* did not make them mean and tough guys, that hard to compete, or give them loot, they just become victims of farming for rings/bracelets/other shinies. Griefers will just start making money by killing hunters.
