Red Dead Online gets a new game mode

Plus a new contract and outfit.

In a fresh update to Red Dead Online, Rockstar Games has added a new game mode called Call to Arms.

The mode tasks players to protect various locations from up to 10 waves of incoming enemies. Players will have to position themselves around the map to defend all the areas.

The locations are Blackwater, Fort Mercer, Valentine, Strawberry, and MacFarlane's Ranch.

For their hard work, players will receive triple cash, XP, and Gold. Players will also receive an offer for 30 percent off any Novice or Promising Role Item within 72 hours.

The update also introduces The Cornwall Contract, a series of Crimes targeting Leviticus Cornwall, tasking players with causing a distraction in order to infiltrate the heart of Cornwall Kerosene & Tar in the Heartlands.
