‘Red Dead Online’ Arrives This Week

Red Dead Redemption 2 update 1.03 has just gone live on PS4 and Xbox One ahead of the game's Online Beta launch later today.

The dataminers are at it again finding some cheeky new details about Red Dead Online which will be releasing today for Ultimate Edition owners first and then progressively for more people over the week.

While the Red Dead Online beta is now only available to a handful of players at this current time, by the end of the week everyone will get the chance to head out into the Wild West for themselves and their posse.

Gamers will be able to customize their character and abilities as they ride off into the sunset seeking new challenges along the way. While the initial release date for Red Dead Online is November 27, many buyers will need to wait until November 30 to play. The best part is you don't have to complete a quest or perform a certain action in Red Dead Online in order to use fast travel.

If you don't have the Ultimate Edition, but still want to see how the online mode works, there are already dozens of players exploring the new mode on Twitch. However, not all players will have access to Red Dead Online right away.

The main issue doesn't appear to be getting online, but when you enter matchmaking for the first time.

However, considering that Rockstar Studios continues to make ungodly amounts of money with Grand Theft Auto Online, Red Dead Redemption 2 was never going to remain a solitary experience.

It seems the camp mentality will be carrying over too, with up to seven players able to form a posse who can gather round fires, go hunting, fishing, attack hideouts, hunt treasure, and visit key locations from across the main campaign.
