Red Dead Online Announced And Planned For Launch In November 2018

Rockstar have announced that Red Dead Online's launch won't come until November, the month after Red Dead Redemption 2's release, and even then it will be starting as a beta and not as a "finished" product. Rockstar describes it as "the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways".

However, this will be a Red Dead Redemption 2 beta, meaning that not all content will be available at launch.

An IGN exclusive interview with the Rockstar Games team indicates that the new mode will indeed use the same world and gameplay mechanics as "Red Dead Redemption 2" as a "jumping off point". It'll use Red Dead Redemption 2 as the base and players will get to explore solo or with buddies.

IGN had access to the game's devs, who gave some more insider info as to what fans and players can expect from Red Dead Online. Whether or not first-person is an option for the recently detailed Red Dead Online isn't now clear. 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. Much like the still-vibrant GTA Online, a stream of updates and tweaks will grow the game over time.

The original Red Dead Redemption was wonderfully atmospheric, and was a graphical powerhouse on PS3, and it looks like Rockstar wants to recapture that with the sequel.

Following the massive success of GTA Online, Rockstar made sure to implement a similar online open world experience for the Western franchise. We feel Grand Theft Auto Online really only found its feet creatively with Heists.

Josh Needleman: Red Dead Redemption's multiplayer was a real leap forward for us at the time.

Rockstar has released some of the very first details about Red Dead Redemption 2's online mode.

Imran: We still have big plans for Grand Theft Auto Online and we will continue to roll out updates for the foreseeable future. We'll see how it all comes together soon enough, as RDR2's release is almost upon us.
