- “Red Dead Redemption 2” came out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, but players have been waiting since release to play “Red Dead Online,” the game’s free multiplayer mode.
- Rockstar Games originally said “Red Dead Online” would enter public beta in mid-November and has told players to expect some growing pains early on.
- Players will be able to explore the world of “Red Dead Online” alone or with friends. It’s expected to offer a mix of storytelling, competitive, and cooperative gameplay.
- Rockstar plans to support “Red Dead Online” with constant updates and adjustments. Healthy ongoing support for “Grand Theft Auto Online” has helped Rockstar sell more than 100 million copies of “Grand Theft Auto V” since 2013.
Rockstar Games’ “Red Dead Redemption 2” was one of the year’s most anticipated games, releasing on October 26th to plenty of fanfare. But a major portion of the game has been missing for the past month, the online multiplayer mode, “Red Dead Online.”
In September, Rockstar revealed that “Red Dead Online” wouldn’t be ready on release and would enter beta testing in November. Rockstar developers have said they consider “Red Dead Online” and “Red Dead Redemption 2” to be two different games, though “Red Dead Online” is free for anyone who buys the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions of “Red Dead Redemption 2.” Now, with just a few days left in November, Rockstar is keeping true to its word and rolling out the online beta for all players this week.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
