Friday, November 30th: All players who own Red Dead Redemption 2.
Are you excited to form a posse and ride into towns with your online friends as outlaws?
Spotted by Ultragamerz, Red Dead Redemption 2's Red Dead Online-specific achievements are now being popped by a very small percentage of players. The earliest someone can play is November 27, 2018, with general access opening on November 30, 2018.
Rockstar designers have described how Red Dead Online learned many lessons from GTA Online, emulating aspects from DLC releases like Heists, The Doomsday Heist, Gun Running and After Hours, though they've also emphasized how missions in Red Dead multiplayer will hew to the slower pace of play found in the horse-bound world of the single-player campaign.
Red Dead Online Beta Release Date & Time Announced, Access Being Granted in Waves
And remember: this is just the BETA phase, so you're not really missing out on much if you bought the game a tad late.
The online westerner will see a staggered release.
Red Dead Online beta access is coming in waves, however, as those who played on November 26 gains access on Wednesday, anyone who played between October 26 and October 29 gets in on Thursday, and every Red Dead Redemption 2 player can get in on the action by Friday. Will it be similar to the online of Red Dead Redemption?
Those who played Red Dead Redemption 2 in the first weekend can play on November 29. According to the promotional video below, "Playing great games makes you hungry". Only time will tell, but if it's half as successful as GTA's version, expect Red Dead to take on a whole new kind of scale in the months to come. If you got the Ultimate Edition, congratulations, you'll be among the first to play the game's online component when it all kicks off on the 28th of November at 12:30 am. You can choose to ignore them if you wish, or join them with other players.
