Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

Red Dead Online beta roll out starts tomorrow for some

Friday, November 30: All players who own Red Dead Redemption 2. 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.

Spotted by Ultragamerz, Red Dead Redemption 2's Red Dead Online-specific achievements are now being popped by a very small percentage of players.

For those who belong to the two groups in the middle, you'll need to be signed into your PSN account and your Rockstar Social Club account. Only Rockstar Games and these early players know. for now.

Achievements, such as "Breakout", which are dished out for completing the intro of Red Dead Online, have previously sat at 0 percent since the game's launch.

Also, Red Dead Online is free, similar to Grand Theft Auto V's immensely popular GTA Online mode, so being behind a few days matters even less.

CD Projekt Red has also learned from its experience with The Witcher 3, which launched with a number of bugs.

Rockstar hasn't confirmed how microstransactions will work in Red Dead Online yet - to be honest, they've not revealed that much about the mode in general - but more details are set to be announced on Tuesday, as the first wave of BETA players jump into the multiplayer.

Firstly, there will be a maximum of 32 players in each Red Dead Online instance at launch, with players able to form a Posse of up to 8 players.

If you want to play solo, that's absolutely fine.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For a single session online, there can be up to 32 players playing together.

Of course, introverts like me can play it alone, customizing their own outlaw and then heading off into town for a new outfit or into the wilds to get more hunting done.
