POPULAR Red Dead Online Getting Major Update
Red Dead Online is getting a major update next week which will introduce new clothing, weapons, and a new game mode called “Fool’s Gold.” In Fool’s Gold players will be hunting down a set of golden armor and attempt to kill enemies while wearing it to increase their score. Although Red Dead Online is starting to receive substantial attention from Rockstar, it will still remain in beta for the foreseeable future. The update is scheduled to come out on PS4 on February 26 and Xbox shortly after.

POPULAR Is Red Dead Redemption 2 getting a story update?
Roger Clark, the voice of Arthur Morgan, recently posted a video feed via Instagram, saying big announcements are coming to rdr 2. Also, he mentioned that he had been recording stuff and meeting with rdr and gta staff members. Could this be a sign that Rockstar's willing to come up with a story DLC? I wouldn't get my hopes up just yet, but this is exciting news!
POPULAR Braithwaite Manor IRL + fun fact!
Fun fact: The owner and builder of Oak Alley (the real mansion) named Jaques Roman, began construction of the building in 1836 and it took him 3 years to complete. He later died in 1848... due to tuberculosis 😱 Pretty cool fact!

POPULAR But why?
So Rockstar have recently added an “update”, to Red Dead which is essentially just a 25% sale on all tonics or something like that in RDO. I can’t even imagine a single human on earth thinking “hmm, you know what I really want R* to add? A sale on tonics!” NOBODY WANTED THIS LMAO! We want things like passive mode, private lobbies, new game modes and missions! Not this crap! Cmon Rockstar, seriously you need to do better.

Rockstar better come up with a story dlc if rdo keeps us disappointed
Who here thinks rdo is going to turn out to be a bigger success than gtao? I'd find it hard to believe if anyone here thinks that way. It's been almost 2 months after rdo released, and we still haven't gotten anything that meets or exceeds our expectations. It's not that I want rdo to fail, but let's just be honest and face the reality. Rdr 2, although it broke the sales record of its predecessor, isn't nearly as enticing as we thought it'd be when we first had heard massive online player mode was on the way, and I'm pretty sure Rockstar never would have thought they would lose so many players due to underdevelopment of rdo. My question is, would Rockstar be stupid enough to abandon an already successful series with lots of potential? I hardly think that would be the case. For what it's worth, I think it's reasonable to assume Rockstar has another plan if things don't go as well as they planned which I think is something close to a story dlc.
POPULAR The Last of Us Director Criticizes RDR 2 for the Lack of Player Freedom
Bruce Straley, the former director of Naughty Dog who created The Last of Us and Uncharted 4, has made his opinion through Twitter that Red Dead Redemption 2 lacks freedom of player's choice. Here's what he said:
In a way, I agree that he's making a valid point by saying, "They need me to do what the story requires & continually remove my choices." Red Dead Redemption 2, although it provides one of the best open world experiences, I feel like the game offered mostly of what developers needed to tell but not what players wanted. I'm not trying to criticize the linearity of the game but pointing out that it offered the most realistic Wild West Simulator but not the most free roaming encouraging environments where you can do whatever you feel like you want to do which something you'd expect from many games from Rockstar. Arguably, rdr 2 was the best game that came out in 2018, but it doesn't mean there aren't room for improvements. What do you guys think?
Rockstar Games is hiring for next gen projects
It seems Rockstar Games is hiring new employees who can help build new games for the next generation consoles. The description says, “next-generation worlds for some exciting upcoming projects” and also, “upon the next generation of MoCap tools and pipeline.” It's not revealed yet what Rockstar is planning to develop. It maybe a totally new game or a sequel for one of Rockstar frachise. Also, they might start working on a next gen port for RDR 2. Whichever it is, I think it's safe to assume it's not a Red Dead sequel as RDR 2 only came out last October.

POPULAR What would you rather have, DLC for singleplayer or online?
Rockstar hasn't been releasing story DLC for their games for long years. I remember how I really enjoyed playing Undead Nightmare for RDR 1 and both two DLCs for GTA IV back before GTA V came out, but now I don't see that happening anymore as they seem to find investing in content for online games much more profitable. The same goes for Red Dead series, and DLC for the singleplayer experience in Red Dead Redemption 2 is unlikely. However, because RDO isn't living up to people's expectations for now, I don't think the chance for us to see a singleplayer expansion DLC in the future is not really close to zero. I would take years maybe, but at least, that's what I'd like to think so. That being so, if you just had to choose one, which would you like to see happening?
The Grey Redemption - RDO with Gandalf #1
I am Gandalf the Grey. I'm in constant pain and on the verge of breaking myself to death. Why am I not in Valinor with Frodo and Bilbo, you say? Well, to put it shortly, once known as Gandalf the White, I was deprived of my status and demoted back to my former self. I was sent back to Middle-Earth, ordered never to come back until I resolve the current situation.
It all happened when Saruman the White filed a lawsuit against me in Valinor.
As many of you know, Saruman the White, who once was a friend and a mentor was defeated by the fellowship. His immortality, however, did not let him perish in vain. He has come back and somehow regained trust enough to enter Valinor. He now wants me to pay for the staff I broke which by his arguments, was brand new and costs fifty thousand dollars🙄 By the rules of Valinor, I'm obliged to be evicted until I pay for the damaged equipment. And so began my journey to pay off the debt...
Middleman: Well, well, well... Look who decided to show up.
A wizard is never late, nor is he early.
He arrives precisely when he means to.
I hear you're looking for a job that comes with easy money.
Saruman told me all about it.
Well... I do have something today that pays you handsomely. It's a four men job that requires you to infiltrate a group of robbers. Interested?
Gandalf: I'm afraid... I have no choice but to accept it...

Hostile Territory - Red Dead Online Guide - 4 -
1. Hostile Territory
Happy New Year, outlaws in moot! Welcome to the fourth installment of Red Dead Online Guide. Returning from special abilities, I've come back with another guide on one of the modes from the Showdown Series playlist, Hostile Territory. I'm sure a lot of you have already played this probably more times than I did, but for people who have just begun playing it and are clueless, I've come up with a short and comprehensive guide on what the mode is about and how to play it.
★Please note that the guide is written based on 'Hostile Territory(Large)'
2. What to expect
"Work in teams to control the land. Capture a territory to start racking up points: the team with most points wins - or you can win outright by capturing every territory."
Unlike any other modes in the Showdown Series, Hostile territory focuses solely on team matches rather than a competition among individual players. Players that participate in a match will be divided either into four teams each with eight players inside or eight teams with four players each.
As stated above, the objective is to capture as many territories as possible to earn points which is quite similar to what you'd see in a typical online shooting game. The trick is simple. Just stay inside a designated building you wish to occupy, and it'll automatically be captured after a few moments if only you or your teammates are inside the area. If enemy players invade the same territory, you will be forced to have a fight unless you want to desert the territory you just captured or wish to capture.
3. How should you play it?
1) Don't rush, Think first and run
As how a typical zone capture game goes, you and your teammates are psychologically compelled to occupy the nearest territory possible which is only a reasonable act; however, because teams are randomly assigned to four or eight fixed locations in a given map, a team may capture a territory or two without breaking a sweat and take an early lead, while others may have to fight just to siege a single area. It takes luck to be in such a team with geographical advantages, and it takes skills to overcome disadvantages if you find yourself in unfavorable situations. Bearing that fact in mind, it may be an option to leave the closest territory and fight for the most strategic territory.
2) Attack or Defend?
With one or more territories already captured, it's important to strategize whether to move out and attack or stay and defend. For sure, capturing a territory to earn points is important, but should you let other teams take advantage of your offensive strategy and take over your palace while no one's defending it? In most cases, the answer is, no. The important thing is to not get greedy. As defending your territory is almost as important as capturing one, try not to rush to the next one. Fully utilize vantage points near captured territories for the best defense which is why you should capture offensively to take more than one territory in the first few minutes and focus on defending them for the rest. Surely, capturing all territories is a tempting option, but the chance is slim especially when there are 8 teams in a match. Defensively, long range weapons really do come in handy. As enemies respawn, they'll most likely rush to you to take what once was theirs. You can easily shoot them down if you find the right spot in the map.
Lastly, cooperating is the key to an easy victory. When facing multiple enemies at once, it's best to stick together, and when the stakes are low, your team can divide into two or more groups, one for defending and the rest for capturing.
4. Map analysis
There are a total of five maps, and I've only managed to review only three of them which are 'Blackwater,' Hearland Oil Fields,' and 'Rhodes.' The rest of said maps are 'Tumbleweed' and 'Bolger Glade' which I did not go over as I lack enough experience to do so.
● Each team is represented with a different color
● ✔️ indicates territories you need to capture
Blackwater is infamous for being an unbalanced map. The orange team can take an advantage of having two territories in one go, while other teams are struggling for one. Also because there are many objects to cover yourself near the ticket office in the right corner, other players will have a hard time penetrating the defense. In Hostile Territory, usually the team with two or more territories takes the victory which means a match may lean towards the yellow team's favor right from the start.
2) Heartland Oil Fields
Heartland Oil Fields is as unbalanced as the Blackwater map. The yellow team is awfully close to both territories in the railway and a building near it. The orange and blue team will capture one of each near them and likely to fight to each other which only leaves the purple team. The purple team is the most far away from all territories and will try to occupy the one in the center which I assume they do so; however it's easy for the yellow team to sabotage them and capture as it's the next closest territory to their first two territories. All in all, the yellow team has the most advantages.
Unlike other maps, 8 teams compete in Rhodes map with only five territories. Because there are so many teams in a single map, we can't really tell which team has more advantages than another. It can easily become a total mayhem. The brown team seems likely to capture one without a fight. However, because the territory closest to them is exactly in the center, it can make them an easy target. Depending on how a match plays out, the green team may have the best chance to take an early lead as they can capture the one closest to the railway without facing a threat.
As these map analysis are mostly based on my own experience in Red Dead Online, you may find the information subjective and misguided. That being so, it's important for you to find the best strategy by trying it out for yourself for many hours.
