Rockstar Has Revealed Red Dead Online and Its Beta

Red Dead Online to Combine Multiplayer with All'We've Learned from GTAO

Today Rockstar Games announced Red Dead Online, a new online connected experience that will be set against the backdrop of Red Dead Redemption 2's enormous open world. Rockstar is keeping details to a minimum, but we already know enough about the game's connection to both the campaign and GTA Online to start building hype right now.

What's perhaps most interesting about Red Dead Online is that it won't be available at first when Red Dead Redemption 2 launches.

In an exclusive Q&A with the Rockstar team, we asked Imran Sarwar, Director of Design at Rockstar North, what the reasoning behind this was, and why they wouldn't drop the multiplayer experience alongside the single-player portion of the game.

Described as "an evolution of the classic multiplayer experience" featured in the original Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Online aims to blend narrative elements with competitive and cooperative gameplay "in fun new ways".

In the announcement Rockstar said Red Dead Online would use Red Dead Redemption 2 as a foundation to make it "ready to explore alone, or with friends".

"We look forward to working with our fantastic and dedicated community to share ideas, help us fix teething problems and work with us to develop Red Dead Online into something really fun and innovative".

Well, saddle up, pardners, because Rockstar has officially spilled the beans on the game's upcoming online component, simply titled Red Dead Online.

Access to the finalized version is, of course, included for anyone who owns Red Dead Redemption 2.

One of the biggest differences between GTA and Red Dead universes is that you're often speeding through or flying over a GTA world, whereas in Red Dead Redemption the change of pace elevates the intimacy of the overall experience.
