Red Dead Online Goes Live This Week

Red Dead Online Goes Live This Week

Red Dead Online will next open up to launch day buyers on Wednesday, Nov. 28, then on Thursday the multiplayer mode beta will open to anyone who played the game between October 26 and October 29.

Characters and gangs from the main game will make an appearance as NPCs, but you will be able to customise your own outlaw to take into the game.

Finally, public access to Red Dead Online will be available to anyone that owns Red Dead Redemption 2 from November 30.

And just like that, Rockstar drops the Red Dead Online bomb.

And now RDR2 is out, attention among fans is shifting towards when Red Dead Online will be out.

Rockstar hasn't shared much information about Red Dead Online so it's not entirely clear what to expect.

Here's the day and date you can start playing the Red Dead Online beta.

Those who played Red Dead Redemption 2 on launch day can play on November 28. It's without much in the way of build-up and fanfare that Red Dead Online will be getting underway, which is unusual given how well-received the single-player game has been received. Counting up the potential players, four full posses will be able to sling bullets at each other in each server.

Along with the player count, Rockstar revealed an incremental release format for the western online shooter.

When it comes to modes, there will be specific versus and competitive modes although there's not been any details on the rumoured battle royale mode.

Given how big GTA Online has been on PC, it stands to reason there should be some interest in what its cowboy equivalent is going to look like, even if there remains no confirmed PC version. Considering Red Dead Online will only support 32 players at launch, you should temper expectations. You can choose to ignore them if you wish, or join them with other players.
