Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Beta in November


Rockstar has leaked out a few new details on the online mode for Red Dead Redemption 2, including word that multiplayer will not launch along with the game and will have a beta period sometime in November. Gamespot has the news.

Quote:
Red Dead Online, the new "online connected experience" for Red Dead Redemption 2 will not be available at launch. Players will have to wait until sometime in November to try it out.

But why? Design director Imran Sarwar said in a new interview that Rockstar sees the single-player and the multiplayer elements as "separate products." Each will "grow and evolve independently of each other," he told IGN.

Sarwar added that Rockstar learned from previous releases that launching big online games is a tricky task. "There are bound to be a few issues and we want to ensure that we have time to gradually roll out the game and make the experience as smooth as we possibly can for everyone," he explained. "We believe this way of rolling out will give people the best overall experiences with both single player and multiplayer."

The launch of Red Dead Online comes in the form of a public beta, so players can expect the experience to be a work in progress. Rockstar is expecting some "turbulence" at launch, adding that the studio looks forward to working with the community to make Red Dead Online everything it can be.

The way they've been able to monetize GTA5 way past it's "sell by" date thanks to GTA Online is nothing short of amazing.

The same will happen with Red Dead.

It may not have the same success simply because you are not able to add the same "ooh" and "awe" that you can in a modern setting. So you really have to be into westerns for the game to have any real hold/staying power.

This is how you can bring a little GTA into a Red Dead DLC. Timerider from 1982

It's actually quite easy, once someone shows you how (and we've all been there, at one point or another).

You'll need to use the YouTube tag: [ youtube] [/youtube ] (without the spaces, of course) and include the letters after the v= in the URL - which in this case would be cnvQmCei4Zo - inside of the tag.

It should end up looking like this when you're done:

Red Dead Online First details

Today we’re excited to announce Red Dead Online, a new online connected experience set against the backdrop of Red Dead Redemption 2's enormous open world.

Red Dead Online is an evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways. Using the gameplay of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 as a foundation, Red Dead Online will be ready to be explored alone or with friends, and will also feature constant updates and adjustments to grow and evolve this experience for all players.

Red Dead Online is planned for launch in November 2018, initially as a public beta, with more news to come soon. As with most online experiences of this size and scale, there will inevitably be some turbulence at launch. 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.

Access to Red Dead Online is free to anyone with a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018.

For more information about Red Dead Online, check out IGN's Q&A.
