That's pretty recognisable to anyone who's played a battle royale this year (and even those who haven't), but Make it Count also comes in a bunch of different varieties.

The "Make It Count" game mode will be comprised of 32 players and involves scavenging for weapons within an ever-shrinking arena - and, of course, it is last cowboy or cowgirl standing. However, the more kills you get, the more points others get for killing you.

Red Dead Online's release schedule is confusing and, probably, unnecessary. Head down to the comments section and let us know!
