Similar to Red Dead Redemption 1 or more appropriately, Grand Theft Auto V , Red Dead Redemption 2 will have a comprehensive online multiplayer mode that's expected to last for years and years to bring Rockstar Games more revenue than the base game itself.
GTA Online has remained one of the most popular multiplayer games for years and helps keep GTA V in the top sales charts ever since it first debuted on last-gen platforms in Expect similar from Read Dead Online.
So, when does Red Dead Redemption 2's online mode come out and what do we know about it? Red Dead Redemption 2 released October 26, and its Red Dead Online mode will launch within a month sometime November , first as a public beta available to all PS4 and Xbox One players who have the game. Red Dead Online is planned for launch in November , initially as a public beta, with more news to come soon. As with most online experiences of this size and scale, there will inevitably be some turbulence at launch.
We look forward to working with our amazing and dedicated community to share ideas, help us fix teething problems and work with us to develop Red Dead Online into something really fun and innovative.
Access to Red Dead Online is free to anyone with a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. As the exact date is announced we'll update here. Red Dead Redemption 2's online offerings releasing weeks later is the same release strategy employed by Rockstar with Grand Theft Auto V.
It gives players an opportunity to experience the massive story and world, and familiarize themselves with the weapons and mechanics first. It also gives the devs and community time to adjust to testing the multiplayer modes which are expected to have growing pains at first, especially given the mass player counts of RDR2. Imran Sarwar, Director of Design at Rockstar North:.
We believe this way of rolling out will give people the best overall experiences with both single player and multiplayer. For this reason, it's unclear how long the "beta" will last, especially since the game will continue to evolve and grow over time regardless, similar to how Grand Theft Auto Online still does.
Red Dead Online is based on the open-world environment and gameplay of Red Dead Redemption 2 and takes place in the same map, with narrative threads woven through. Arthur's faith in Dutch is finally shattered when he leaves John for dead during the heist and refuses to rescue Abigail when she is captured by Milton.
Arthur disobeys Dutch's orders and rescues Abigail, with Sadie's help. During the rescue, Arthur is ambushed by Milton, who reveals that Micah has been working as an informant for the Pinkertons since their return from Guarma before he is killed by Abigail.
Before Arthur heads back to camp to confront Micah, he tells the women to leave for safety, bidding them farewell. The gang finally collapses when Arthur and John both return to camp, openly accusing Micah and Dutch of betrayal. Dutch, Bill, Javier, and Micah turn on John and Arthur when the Pinkertons arrive, but all six manage to flee into the wilderness.
Arthur accepts his fate and either buys John time to escape by confronting the Pinkertons, or heads back to camp to retrieve Dutch's money stash. After either option, Micah ambushes Arthur and Dutch intervenes in their fight.
Arthur manages to convince Dutch to abandon Micah and leave. If Arthur was played honorably, he succumbs to his tuberculosis in peace under the sunrise, otherwise, Micah executes him. Years later, John is attempting to lead an honest life and provide a living for Abigail and their son Jack.
Finding work at a local ranch , John is forced to fight back against a group of outlaws threatening his employer. Believing that John will never escape his old life, Abigail leaves with Jack. In order to convince Abigail he's changed, John buys a plot of land with the intention of turning it into a ranch. He reunites with several surviving gang members, including Uncle, Sadie, and Charles, who help John build his ranch and provide him with jobs to pay off his bank loans. Upon Abigail's return, John proposes to her.
Eventually, Sadie comes across information leading to Bell's location and informs Charles and John. Against Abigail's wishes, John, wanting revenge for Arthur's death, leaves with Charles and Sadie to hunt down Bell. After arriving at Micah's camp, Charles and Sadie are wounded by his men, forcing John to continue alone.
After gunning down several of Micah's men, including Joe , John confronts Bell, only to be shocked to discover that he and Dutch are working together again. However, Dutch shoots Bell, allowing John to finish him off. With Bell dead, Dutch takes his leave without a word. John then discovers that Bell had since recovered the money stash left behind in Blackwater, and uses it to fully pay off his loan. Later, John formally marries Abigail, and they both look forward to living a new life on their ranch, alongside Uncle and Jack, while Sadie and Charles leave for other pursuits.
The fates of surviving gang members are revealed in newspaper articles, letters, NPC dialogue, random encounters, and several mid-credit scenes: Pearson opened a general store in Rhodes, Swanson became a priest in New York, Tilly married a lawyer, Mary-Beth became a writer, Karen presumably drank herself to death, and Strauss was arrested and killed in captivity, staying loyal to the gang and revealing none of the gang's secrets.
Meanwhile, Agent Ross , now working for the Bureau of Investigation , discovers Bell's corpse. He and his partner Archer Fordham follow the trail straight to John's ranch, initiating the events of the first game. John looks at the grave to which he says "I guess we're just about done, my friend.

By Tamoor Hussain on November 27, at PM PST. Red Dead Online is now available following the release of an update, although only Ultimate edition owners can access it for the time being. Even if you are supposed to be in, things may not be going smoothly--the game isn't working for some, and Xbox One users specifically may not have been properly granted access.
Now Playing: Red Dead Online Beta Is Live Now For Some Players - GS News Update. Those that played Red Dead Redemption 2 on its launch day--based on Rockstar's own data--will be given access to the beta from November If you played the game at any point between launch and October 29, you'll be able to jump into the beta from November Finally, everyone else that owns the game can check out the beta from November This gradual rollout, Rockstar says, will help it "ease into the beta and to mitigate major issues.
According to Rockstar, Red Dead Online "blends the classic multiplayer of the original Red Dead Redemption with the best of everything we have learned since then about creating deep multiplayer experiences.
Rockstar continues: "With the gameplay of Red Dead Redemption 2 as its foundation, Red Dead Online transforms the vast and deeply detailed landscapes, cities, towns and habitats of Red Dead Redemption 2 into a new, living online world ready to be shared by multiple players. Red Dead Online will allow players to create their own characters and select abilities that are in line with their playstyle. From there, players can choose to venture out into the online world alone or with a Posse of up to seven other players.
Players will be able to engage in a variety of activities in Red Dead Online. They can hang out with their friends around the campfire, do some hunting or fishing, kill a few hours in towns brimming with life, trade steel with rival gangs or plot ambushes of their hideouts.
Treasure scattered around the world is available to be found, and there's also familiar characters waiting with missions for you to undertake.
For those that don't want to be directed to do things, you can start spontaneous skirmishes with either other players, or entire Posses in open world challenges. The beta launch of Red Dead Online is described as "the first step in what will be a continually expanding and dynamic world. Red Dead Redemption 2 has been getting a lot of play among the GameSpot team. If we aren't putting together guides or getting up to no good as Dirty Arty --the meanest, most uncleanist outlaw in the wild west--we're thinking about what we'd like to see in the game.
With that in mind, we've put together a Red Dead Online wishlist with some of our most wanted features. Red Dead Redemption 2 has been a big success for Rockstar and parent publisher Take-Two.
Just over a week after its launched it was announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 had passed 17 million copies shipped worldwide. That means it needed had already passed the lifetime shipment figure of the original, Red Dead Redemption. Take-Two said that Red Dead Redemption 2 shipped more units over its first eight days than the title shipped in its first eight years.
Given the ongoing popularity of Grand Theft Auto V's Online mode--which contributes to continuing strong sales of the game--we expect Red Dead Redemption 2 also has a healthy future ahead of itself. The products discussed here were independently chosen by our editors.
