Red Dead Online beta online now with Battle Royale mode

Red Dead Online beta online now with Battle Royale mode

The Red Dead Online mode is only being switched on today, and even then only for those that own the Ultimate Edition, but fans have hacked in and found a list of intended modes anyway. The cohort who played between October 26 and 29 can join the fray on Friday November 30, and everyone else will jump in on Saturday December 1 - just in time for the weekend.

While the Red Dead Online beta is now only available to a handful of players at this current time, by the end of the week everyone will get the chance to head out into the Wild West for themselves and their posse.

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.

Despite Red Dead Redemption 2's October 26 debut, the game's online mode is on track for delayed launch, initially in a beta state.

Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

Rockstar Games hasn't detailed anything about Red Dead Online up till now so whether these modes will be available from this week isn't clear.

KitGuru Says: GTA Online ended up being a huge success, so it will be interesting to see how that carries over to Red Dead Redemption 2.

"This will help ensure that our servers can handle a steadily growing volume of concurrent players in the early hours and first days of the Beta and hopefully reduce the likelihood of any server crashes during the launch week as we get things up and running."
The online mode is available as part of a beta, so you can expect a few teething issues and other oddities to pop up along the way. As long as you own the base game, you'll be able to jump right into the beta this week, creating your own character and exploring the world with your friends. According to Rockstar, Red Dead Online was built from the ground up to take advantage of the current generation of gaming consoles - namely the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 families.

Online outlaws will be able to form Posses of up to seven players and engage in wholesome Wild West activities such as hunting, fishing, sitting around a campfire, and bloody murder.
