Many players have been enjoying Red Dead Redemption 2 for a bit now. Sadly I haven’t started playing yet, so I’m a little jealous. But I’ll saddle up soon. In the meantime, we have some good news. The release date of RDR2’s beta for the online component has been announced, with the trial run kicking off tomorrow, 11/27/18.
Only select players will be able to participate in the beta when it launches on Tuesday, though. If you bought the Red Dead Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition you’ll get the first shot at the online beta. After the release date, other players will be able to test Red Dead Online in intervals. On November 30th, the online beta will be accessible by everyone who owns the game.
Players will be able to create their own characters and play with friends online. There will be both competitive and cooperative elements included. It’s apparently similar to how online gameplay worked in Grand Theft Auto V. You will be able to create and customize your character and your abilities to suit your play style. It should be fun.
