Red Dead Online public beta set to launch later this month

09 November 2018

I have a feeling the reality of those days will be more akin to the absolute carnage we'll see once Rockstar launch the multiplayer component of their latest hit, Red Dead Redemption 2. In addition to the base game, Rockstar is planning to launch Red Dead Online - a highly anticipated multiplayer expansion that takes place in Red Dead Redemption 2's open world. Rockstar had previously announced that Red Dead Online would launch as a beta in November, but failed to provide any specific dates for the launch at the time. Obviously, that isn't as specific as we'd all like, but it does narrow things down a bit nonetheless.

That's not much detail for a hugely important game mode set to launch in about three weeks, but the structure sounds similar to that of GTA Online, which immediately became a fan favorite and has helped drive sales over the years.

According to the Daily Star, he said: "It's way too early to talk about Red Dead Redemption 2 Online, it hasn't released yet".

Gamers will be chomping at the bit to learn more about the online version of the game, which will be free to access for anyone who owns Red Dead Redemption 2 (and an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4).

Rockstar is still being cagey about what is involved, though it says it will mix narrative-driven gameplay with co-op and competitive play.

The financial report also included a financial outlook, which is now raised to reflect "better than expected" sales of Red Dead Redemption 2.
