Progress in Red Dead Online Beta May Not Transfer to Official Release


Red Dead Redemption 2 Online is set to be the next major multiplayer obsession for a lot of console players. By changing these settings, your horse basically can not be stolen in Red Dead Online. By the end of the week, all owners of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be able to jump into the game's map an play the brigand or hero in its Wild West world.

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.

Red Dead Online beta players may lose progress throughout the beta experience, Rockstar Games has advised. If you don't have the Ultimate Edition, but still want to see how the online mode works, there are already dozens of players exploring the new mode on Twitch.

Players that played the game in its first week (26-29 October) will be eligible to join at the same time on Thursday 29 November. Red Dead Online will remain in beta for as long as it needs to, which could be a few weeks, or a few months depending on how things go. If you don't fancy reaching for your wallet, one gold bar could take you up to 8 hours to earn. In this mini PvP challenge, respawns are active and players are meant to kill each other as much as possible.

Most Wanted features a leaderboard system where you want to finish at the top of the pile, gaining points for each kill. If you're one of those people, you can head online on Wednesday, November 28. With a gradually shrinking player area, there's nowhere to run. The game will feel far more threatening when you have to be wary of every bush, corner, and tree. Then it's the turn of those who played it between 26 October and 29 October.

Demonstrate your personal specialty in this free-for-all or team-based match: the trickier the weapon you use to land the killing blow, the more points you get.

When you're done creating your character for the first time you're probably feeling pretty good about how he looks but what happens if want to change your appearance down the road? After the three minutes is up, you are back to the regular Red Dead Online kill rules.
