Given the resounding success of GTA Online, it’s been presumed for quite some time that RDR2 would contain an updated version of Red Dead Online that would be continually updated. Yesterday, Rockstar Games confirmed that is indeed the case.
The beta for Red Dead Online will begin in November and players can expect the following from the online 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.
While expected, this is still very exciting. Red Dead Online was a tremendous experience during the last generation. With today’s tech and the learnings from GTA Online, Rockstar will likely create a truly amazing experience with RD Online. It’s hard to believe the wait is almost over with only 5 weeks till launch!
