Our friend at TrustedReviews got their hands on some Red Dead Redemption 2 leaked documents (they got access to it way back in August 2017, sharing it now after confirming that the details in it are legit).
One of the biggest takeaways from this rather sizeable leak relates to the Red Dead Redemption 2 multiplayer modes, which apparently include modes named Revive, Survive, Money Grab, and most intriguingly, Battle Royale.
According to the leaked information, Red Dead Redemption 2's online mode will build on the vast success of GTA Online and include a Battle Royale mode.
They also the game can be played in first person and GTA Online elements will be incorporated, replacing apartments with tents, and there will be treasure hunts and deathmatches.
A site called Trusted Reviews (oh the irony...) received some development documents some time ago. Take the following with a grain of salt. While it remains unknown whether or not the Battle Royale mode will operate similarly to the how PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds or Fortnite work, it wouldn't be surprising to see Rockstar try and capitalize on the growing popularity of the Battle Royale genre of games. According to the report, online gamemodes will include "Money Grab", "Revive and Survive", and finally, "Battle Royale".
Like Grand Theft Auto Online, Red Dead Redemption 2 Online will also let players freely explore the open-world environment, but this time around it will have more depth. The last big thing, persistent online worlds a la Destiny, is much more hard to maintain than throwing a bunch of players in survival arena and telling them to have at it.

Lastly, Rockstar seems to be preparing a companion app for smartphones which will launch alongside "Red Dead Redemption 2".
"Eagle Eye makes a return with enhanced abilities including tracking bounties through fields and detecting which fish and animals are available nearby", reports Trusted Reviews.
As for the campaign itself, a player's decision in the game can shift the story.
Specific player actions during campaign missions apparently have a form of branching paths. According to Trusted Reviews the document lists Clamshell, Ghost, Night Scented, Rat Tail and Spider Orchids as some of those materials. However, it's entirely possible that some of these are inaccurate, while other may have been made up, as pointed out by Game Rant.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is expected to have a first-person mode like GTAV.
Now Red Dead Redemption 2 Battle Royale is said to be on its way, which will inevitably open up the floodgates and lay down the groundwork for other publishers.
