First Red Dead Online Details Revealed; Beta Coming in November

First Red Dead Online Details Revealed; Beta Coming in November

Red Dead Online will try to lean on "roleplaying" and "morality" vibes to differentiate itself from GTA Online (which is still getting regular updates, in case you were wondering).

Red Dead Online is scheduled to launch sometime in November 2018 through the public beta, with more details on what that will entail to follow.

Rockstar Games has unveiled Red Dead Online, the online component to Red Dead Redemption 2 that will be set within the same massive, open world. Concerns over launching a big new online game were also a reason. Like the single player game's story of Arthur Morgan, we want people to settle into their online characters and feel like every activity makes sense for the character, the setting and the time.

The announcement doesn't discuss much, but it does promise an evolution of the "classic multiplayer experience" present in the first Red Dead Redemption game, as well as a focus on a strong narrative, as well as solid competitive and cooperative gameplay. However, the mode's popularity arguably came at the cost of the single player experience: teased DLC never materialized, and numerous features GTA Online has received over time haven't been implemented into the core game.

But Icahn abandoned his efforts to derail the merger after two independent advisory firms recommended shareholders approve it. Both Express Scripts and Cigna shares closed higher Monday from the previous close following the DOJ clearance.


Red Dead Redemption 2 will come with a significant online side of the game, likely similar to the hugely popular GTA 5 Online side to Grand Theft Auto 5.

If you expected to be able to jump into Red Dead Redemption 2's online multiplayer on day one, then I've got another thing coming for you.

They have said that the initial launch will be considered a "public beta".

'We look forward to working with our unbelievable 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'.
