Rockstar Games have revealed Red Dead Online, the Red Dead Redemption 2 multiplayer component. Set in the RDR2 game world, it’s described as an evolution of the original game’s multiplayer experience.
Red Dead Online Beta Goes Public Post Launch
The Red Dead Online beta will begin in November 2018 with a full release date yet to be revealed. Rockstar is still being cagey about what is involved, though it says it will mix narrative-driven gameplay with co-op and competitive play.
Red Dead Online will also evolve with regular updates. It’s going to be crazy at launch with many players looking to get right into beta. So much so, they’re already bracing fans for a rough launch:
“As with most online experiences of this size and scale, there will inevitably be some turbulence at launch,” says Rockster. “We look forward to working with our amazing and dedicated community to share ideas, help us fix teething problems and work with us to develop Red Dead Online into something really fun and innovative”.
It will cost no extra to enjoy the Red Dead Online multiplayer experience as it will be free when you buy Red Dead Redemption 2, which launches on October 26, 2018.
We’ll bring you full news of the Red Dead Online beta, which will be available to all players, as soon as details are revealed. Regarding the main campaign, Rockstar confirmed earlier this month that it will feature one playable character. Earlier this week, we got a look at some of the locations players will be exploring across the huge map!
