Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

Despite Red Dead Redemption 2's October 26 debut, the game's online mode is on track for delayed launch, initially in a beta state.

While the Red Dead Online beta is now only available to a handful of players at this current time, by the end of the week everyone will get the chance to head out into the Wild West for themselves and their posse. Those who bought the Red Dead Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition will be the first to join the eagerly-anticipated online mode.

It always seemed likely such a fighting format would be included in the online version of Red Dead Redemption 2, given the popularity of battle royale variations on other games, such as Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout mode. It is free for anyone who already owns Red Dead Redemption 2. Or will Rockstar base most of Red Dead's post-launch content around an online theme?

Feedback remains pretty positive for Red Dead Online, although fans might be in for a bumpy ride the closer we get to the end of the week.

"During this process, we will be looking to our dedicated community to help us report and fix problems, share ideas, and assist in shaping the future of the full Online experience". It will then roll out to anyone who played the game on launch day tomorrow.

Details of the breadth of what's available remain vague, but Rockstar have explained, like GTA Online, you'll be able to create and customise your own character with tailored abilities. There's also Name Your Weapon, which is a free-for-all mode in which using some weapons nets you more points than using others, and Most Wanted, which pits players against one another using a bounty system to make certain kills more valuable. There will be missions to complete, gangs to fight and treasure to hunt if players so choose, as well as opportunities to compete with other outlaws and Posses in open world challenges.

A new Red Dead Redemption 2 update is out now that introduces Red Dead Online to the game.
