You’ll Be Able to Round Up a Posse Later This Week in Red Dead Online

The beta for Red Dead Online, the online mode for the critically-acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2, is scheduled to start on Tuesday, November 27th for players who purchased the “Ultimate Edition” of the game.

On Wednesday, the beta will become available for those who’ve been playing the game since its launch on October 26th and will become fully available for every Red Dead Redemption 2 player on Friday.

Red Dead Online’s specific gameplay modes haven’t been detailed yet but here’s an official overview of what you’ll be able to do:

“With the gameplay of Red Dead Redemption 2 as its foundation, Red Dead Online transforms the vast and deeply detailed landscapes, cities, towns, and habitats of Red Dead Redemption 2 into a new, living online world ready to be shared by multiple players. Create and customize your character, tailor your abilities to suit your play style, and head out into a new frontier full of things to experience.

Explore this huge world solo or with friends. Form or join a posse to ride with up to seven players; gather around the fire at your camp; head out hunting or fishing; visit bustling towns; battle enemy gangs and attack their hideouts; hunt for treasure; take on missions and interact with familiar characters from across the five states; or fight against other outlaws in both spontaneous skirmishes and pitched set-piece battles; compete with other players or whole posses in open world challenges and much more.”
