Rockstar detailed its weekly update for Red Dead Online in a blog post today, revealing a new Showdown Mode and new duds in the Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue.

This week’s Showdown Mode is called Sport of Kings. As per the blog post:

“Battle on horseback to secure the burning torch and ride through all your team’s signal fires to score…” Sport of Kings involves two teams and four to eight players, armed with sawed-off shotguns and rare single-shot dynamite bow pickups that appear on either side of the torch.
