Red Dead Online-which I'm sure we will all be calling RDO soon enough-is "built from the ground up for the latest hardware" and "blends the classic multiplayer of the original Red Dead Redemption with the best of everything we have learned since then about creating deep multiplayer experiences", Rockstar said.
RDR2 is without a doubt one of the biggest PS4 and Xbox One releases of this year, smashing sales records for Rockstar Games and garnering widespread critical acclaim.
Rockstar are labelling the early weeks of Red Dead online as a beta, continuing to test the game's stability as Red Dead Redemption 2's huge audience heads online to play.
It's the news us cowboys and cowgirls have been waiting for:Red Dead Online starts this week, and it's ready to transform Red Dead Redemption 2, say its makers, "into a new, living online world ready to be shared by multiple players".
Let us know in the comments if you're planning on playing Red Dead Online this week for yourself. Don't worry if you didn't, though; players who jumped into the Wild West on launch day (26 October) can enjoy Online from Wednesday 28 November.
As such, Rockstar is expecting the "inevitable turbulence of launching any online experience of this size and scale" and it is asking the Red Dead Redemption 2 community to report any issues and share their feedback so that Rockstar can shape the experience with them in mind. Considering Red Dead Online will only support 32 players at launch, you should temper expectations. The answer is nearly certainly the latter - after all, it made endless truckloads of cash money for Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive - but it's possible it will maybe even be a hybrid of both. The new multiplayer mode will be free to anyone who purchased Red Dead Redemption 2.
