First Red Dead Online Details Revealed; Beta Coming in November

Red Dead Online Announced And Planned For Launch In November 2018

Red Dead Online Announced And Planned For Launch In November 2018

It will use Red Dead Redemption 2 "as a foundation" and will constantly be updated with new content that will allow it to "grow and evolve this experience for all players".

In an exclusive Q&A with the Rockstar team, we asked Imran Sarwar, Director of Design at Rockstar North, what the reasoning behind this was, and why they wouldn't drop the multiplayer experience alongside the single-player portion of the game.

Anyone who's ever taken part in an evolving online video game world knows that it can feel a bit like venturing out into the lawless frontiers of the Wild West - ideal for a game like Red Dead Redemption 2!

By the sounds of it, Red Dead Online will receive the bulk of Rockstar's post-launch support, much the way that Grand Theft Auto Online has.

The only way to play Red Dead Online will be to buy a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2.

We're not too far from Red Dead Redemption 2's October 26 release date.

Rockstar also says that Red Dead Online will feature constant updates and adjustments to continuously improve on the online experience. We have an idea of some of the mechanics thanks to a gameplay video and preview coverage, a basic understanding of the story, but something that has been a big mystery for the last two years is the mysterious online mode. In Red Dead Redempt1on, a small number of players could run around the vast countryside, starting co-op missions, taking pot shots at one another, or cautiously eyeballing each other as they passed by on quiet dusty roads. However, if GTA Online is any indication, Red Dead Online will probably be built with the potential for ample microtransactions. You won't have to pay anything extra to access Red Dead Online.

Digital Foundry reports that the engine is using more sophisticated techniques to render in-game characters and effects, meaning that players, in the end, are going to get a better overall gameplay experience.

"We feel Grand Theft Auto Online really only found its feet creatively with Heists", Needleman told Iggers. "This should feel intimate and personal while still feeling fun and action-packed from moment to moment". The demo featured a First Person Mode, similar to what we saw in Grand Theft Auto V.
