Some 'Red Dead Redemption 2' Players Are Already Playing 'Red Dead Online'


Red Dead Online's beta period will begin in a limited capacity tomorrow, November 27, before becoming available to all players on Friday, November 30.

Rockstar Games previously said that the Red Dead Online beta would arrive before the end of November. On Wednesday, all users who played Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26, according to Rockstar's data, will be open to play.

Here's the day and date you can start playing the Red Dead Online beta.

Firstly, there will be a maximum of 32 players in each Red Dead Online instance at launch, with players able to form a Posse of up to 8 players.

For everyone else, you can see below for when you'll have access to the Red Dead Online beta. And yes, Rockstar will be looking to its "dedicated and incredible community to help us report and fix problems, share ideas, and assist in shaping the future of the full Online experience".

Thursday, November 29: All players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 between October 26th to October 29th according to Rockstar data.

If that's the case, and testing is now taking place, then maybe Rockstar Games are gearing up for an imminent release date.

Achievements, such as "Breakout", which are dished out for completing the intro of Red Dead Online, have previously sat at 0 percent since the game's launch.

It's also likely that heists might make something of a reprisal in Red Dead Redemption Online, with the amount of enter-able banks throughout the lands of the game world.

If you want one for yourself - maybe get one made of your horse - UnshiftedToast is taking commissions.

Of course, introverts like me can play it alone, customizing their own outlaw and then heading off into town for a new outfit or into the wilds to get more hunting done. Only time will tell, but if it's half as successful as GTA's version, expect Red Dead to take on a whole new kind of scale in the months to come. Will it be better than GTA Online?
