Good news if you have been waiting for the online portion of Red Dead Redemption, you have just one sleep before you can start cowboying with your friends.
Well, almost, only those who purchased the Ultimate version of the game get to go online tomorrow, 1.30pm UK time, and they will be followed by those who played the game on launch day, October 26th who will get access Wednesday. Thursday will see those who played the game between October 26th and 29th can access the beta, and then everyone else gets to play Friday.
Rockstar have kept details of the online portion of the game under wraps and have only revealed a few select details. Here’s the official description of what you can get up to.
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. Create and customise your character, tailor your abilities to suit your play style, and head out into a new frontier full of things to experience.
Explore this huge world solo or with friends. Form or join a posse to ride with up to seven players; gather around the fire at your camp; head out hunting or fishing; visit bustling towns; battle enemy gangs and attack their hideouts; hunt for treasure; take on missions and interact with familiar characters from across the five states; or fight against other outlaws in both spontaneous skirmishes and pitched set-piece battles; compete with other players or whole posses in open world challenges and much more.
