Red Dead Redemption 2 players from today will see the Up In Smoke showdown mode available in the Red Dead Online Beta.
The official Rockstar Games Twitter account revealed the news, posting: “Destroy the enemy camp at all costs in Up In Smoke, the new Red Dead Online Beta Showdown Mode.”
They also added: “This week’s featured bonus is a 30% XP boost on Ability Cards, which come in handy while you’re fighting to deliver an explosive package behind enemy lines.”
In a post online Rockstar went into further detail about what Red Dead Redemption 2 players can expect from Up In Smoke.
Describing Up In Smoke, Rockstar Games said: “All players start out with an explosive package and each successful delivery to the opposing team’s base will detonate a piece of their camp.
“Deliver all of your packages and raze the competition’s base to the ground to claim victory.”
They also added: “This week’s featured bonus is a 30% XP boost on all Ability Cards.
“Ability Cards come in Dead Eye and Passive variants – Dead Eye Ability Cards grant special advantages while Dead Eye is active while Passive Ability Cards have unique Combat, Recovery or Defensive advantages- and each card has three available tiers.
“Rack up extra XP this week to reach the next tier faster, then upgrade the card to get an improved version of that ability.
“Ability Cards like To Fight Another Day, Strange Medicine and Slippery Bastard can all come in handy in Up in Smoke, activate them while you’re fighting your way to deliver an explosive package behind enemy lines.”
