  • Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

For the first day, it will initially be limited to owners of Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition. Rockstar said to expect "something completely new and fun" from Red Dead Online.

Rather than flinging open the gates and watching cowboys trample each other underhoof in their race to murder each other, Rockstar has separated Red Dead Redemption 2 players into groups and is rolling the mode out over the next few days. As previously revealed, legacy locations from Red Dead Redemption will also be visitable, too - most notably locations south of the border, in Mexico. Access to Red Dead Online is being doled out based on how and when you bought Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Online will be available tomorrow, November 27th at 8:30 EST, to those who purchased the $100 Red Dead Redemption II Ultimate Edition of the game. I played the original game's online mode for hours on end and had a blast.

Mexico to up security at border after migrants try to cross
Democrats and even some lawmakers in Trump's own party have resisted his calls to fund his proposed border wall. President Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday to express his displeasure with the caravans in Mexico.

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. Red Dead Online is set to blend the compelling storytelling we've seen in the singleplayer game with "cooperative and competitive gameplay options".

It seems the camp mentality will be carrying over too, with up to seven players able to form a posse who can gather round fires, go hunting, fishing, attack hideouts, hunt treasure, and visit key locations from across the main campaign.

On Thursday, Nov. 29, everyone who played the Wild West-themed action-adventure game during its debut weekend (between October 26 and October 29) will gain access to the online multiplayer beta.

Prince Harry and Meghan are moving to the burbs
The large home is reportedly set to undergo a big refurbishment to turn it from staff accommodation into a family residence. The Duke and US-born Duchess of Sussex will keep their country home in the Cotswolds while they reside in Windsor.

Red Dead Online is a free extension of Red Dead Redemption 2, so you must own an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 copy to play.

Now it looks like we know a little more, thanks to a twitter user who appears to have unearthed the game's playlists and online jobs. 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.
