Red Dead Online Now Available… For Some Of You

If the millions of people who bought the game try out the multiplayer it makes sense to stress test how well it actually works. Red Dead's weapons might not have made for the slickest gunplay in comparison to its battle royale competitors, so leaning into something more low-tech could prove an effective twist on the formula. Throughout the balance of the week, players of other versions of the game will be rolled into the beta experience that is a free cooperative and competitive game mode. For a full breakdown of Red Dead Online's expected features, check out our complete rundown on news and leaks so far.

Red Dead Online is set for a staggered rollout over four days in late November. I'm not going to go into the beta thinking it's ideal though; I remember Grand Theft Auto Online's rocky launch and I won't get my hopes up until it's out of beta.

Those who played Red Dead Redemption 2 (any version of the game) on launch day will get access on November 28.

Rockstar added, "With the gameplay of Red Dead Redemption 2 as its foundation, Red Dead Online transforms the vast and deeply detailed landscapes, cities, towns, and habitats of Red Dead Redemption 2 into a new, living online world ready to be shared by multiple players". Users also note that you can't play card games, so you'll want to forget about cleaning up in a round of poker. Today, the beta is only going live for folks who shelled out the extra cash for the Red Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition.

The game - which launched last month, but has only started letting players access the multiplayer part of the game today - seems to be struggling under the weight of eager players keen to discover what awaits in what is essentially the second "half" of the game.

Red Dead Online will be in early access and beta phase for now. In the meantime, Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, starting at $59.99.
