Red Dead Redemption 2 update: Halloween Fear of the Dark online event revealed

Following the release of a new Red Dead Online update this morning, Rockstar Games has now confirmed a new Red Dead Redemption 2 Halloween event in the form of a new Showdown mode.

The new Halloween event might not be the Red Dead Redemption 2 Undead Nightmare release many fans might have been hoping for, but it does at least scratch that itch just a little bit.

This new limited-time event begins today and will end in a couple of weeks time on Tuesday November 12.

Here's a quick summary of the new mode, courtesy of Rockstar Games:

"A scary new addition to Red Dead Online’s Showdown Modes debuts this week! Fear of the Dark features teams of supernaturally powerful Night Stalkers battling against mortal Hunters, with bonus payouts of 3X Gold and 2X RDO$ with a variant of the Freak Mask given free to all players that win a round."

That's just the abridged version, with more details included further down alongside a flurry of new updates to Red Dead Online as well.

Fear of the Dark is a terrifying new limited-time addition to Red Dead Online Showdown Modes pitting supernaturally fast, tough and strong Night Stalkers against mere mortal Hunter counterparts. The Night Stalkers' powers, however, are tied to the skull masks strewn about their stomping grounds. The more masks the Hunters get their hands on, the weaker the Night Stalkers become, while the Hunters' own weapons grow stronger.

Hunters can only succeed in this new mode by collecting all of the masks and killing all remaining Night Stalkers. Night Stalkers can win by either wiping out the Hunters or surviving until the time limit expires.

Play Fear of the Dark now through November 12 th in Red Dead Online. And to sweeten the deal, the entire Fear of the Dark series pays out a hearty 3X Gold and 2X RDO$ through November 3 rd .
