  • Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

Shortly before Red Dead Redemption 2 launched in October, Rockstar announced that the game's online component, Red Dead Online, would launch in beta at some point in November.

Residents of Sweden can enjoy a free flame-grilled Western Whopper by crafting their own in Red Dead Redemption 2 through December 5.

Starting tomorrow, on the 27th November, the beta will become available to everyone who bought the Ultimate Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Rockstar Games previously said that the Red Dead Online beta would arrive before the end of November.

Those who played the game on day one will join the fray on Wednesday, whereas those who played it within the first three days of release will be able to jump on the mode this Thursday.

Those who played Red Dead Redemption 2 in the first weekend can play on November 29.

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's Bengaluru reception: Inside pics and videos
Ever since Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh announced their wedding, fans have been keeping a close eye on their every move. The couple shared a regal image of them in their wedding finery just before the reception kicked off.

Rockstar makes clear that this beta period is for testing, rather than a demo, saying that it will help "deal with the inevitable turbulence of launching any online experience of this size and scale".

Are you excited to form a posse and ride into towns with your online friends as outlaws? In Red Dead Online, you'll be able to posse up in bands of up to eight players, while activities include fishing, hunting, duelling with rival gangs and fighting "spontaneous skirmishes and pitched set-piece battles".

While we won't know exactly what Red Dead Online looks like until it launches tomorrow, it stands to reason that it will follow a similar road to that of Grand Theft Auto Online, which featured the same massive game world as Grand Theft Auto V, but with new modes, features, and narrative threads to follow.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now in development for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, but has yet to attract a release date. Considering Red Dead Online will only support 32 players at launch, you should temper expectations.

Judging by how popular GTA Online has been, it's likely Rockstar Games will have another mega hit on their hands once RDR2 Online launches.
