Rockstar announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 will get an online mode called Red Dead Online. Like GTA Online, Red Dead Online will be free for all owners of Red Dead Redemption 2. It will offer huge worlds to explore with friends. The activity design will mix elements of Red Dead Redemption’s multiplayer and GTA Online.
Red Dead Online will not launch alongside Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26. Instead, a public beta will kick off in November 2018. Rockstar has not revealed how long they plan on keeping the new mode in beta, but they do expect the public beta to be a bumpy launch.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled to launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26.
