Here’s How To Gain Early Access To ‘Red Dead Online’

Today, all Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition owners will have access to the Beta.

November 29: Red Dead Online Beta beta will be available on November 29 to those players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 between October 26 to October 29, according to the Rockstar's data.

Red Dead Online transforms the massive and deeply detailed landscapes, cities, towns and habitats of RDR2 into you and your friends ultimate playground.

For those who belong to the two groups in the middle, you'll need to be signed into your PSN account and your Rockstar Social Club account.

"We hope that all player progress during this early period of the Beta will be able to remain intact long term", Rockstar writes on its official website.

For over a month, we've been robbing and looting across Red Dead Redemption 2's vast and lawless frontier on our own.

"This will help ensure that our servers can handle a steadily growing volume of concurrent players in the early hours and first days of the Beta and hopefully reduce the likelihood of any server crashes during the launch week as we get things up and running."

Red Dead Online is a separate, multiplayer online mode for Red Dead Redemption 2 that is being added to the best-selling game for free.

Red Dead Online as it exists now is actually a beta. The company is also silent on the game's microtransaction system, which is expected to follow GTAV and its "Shark Card" method of separating players from their real-world money in exchange for in-game items which, oddly for a game that is entirely based around the concept of stealing what you want, are often not available any other way. This is quite a difference from the true-to-life fast travel options present in Red Dead Redemption 2, which force you to take a train or stagecoach to fast-travel around the huge open world.

Much like GTA Online, Red Dead Online will be a "live service", which most likely means you can expect regular content updates to drop over time, as well as some form of microtransactions.
