Red Dead Online Beta Releases Tomorrow, but There's a Catch

The full rollout will happen over the course of a week.

Rockstar Games announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 Online multiplayer will launch on Tuesday, November 27.

Red Dead Online will have a bit of a staggered launch, first releasing as a beta tomorrow available to owners of the Ultimate Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2. The Red Dead Online beta will then open up on November 28 to day one Red Dead Redemption 2 players before rolling out to players who've played Red Dead Redemption 2 on the first three days of launch on Thursday, November 29. The beta will then be available for all players on Friday, November 30.

Red Dead Online follows the massive success of Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto Online and will allow for gamers to play Red Dead together in a cooperative world that folds in narrative components as well. The full-scale of Red Dead Online won't be known until players get a chance to jump in. Red Dead Online will be available for free to all owners of the game.
