Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

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. If you only played it on launch and during the game's opening weekend (October 26-29), you'll be able to test Red Dead Online on November 27, which is this Wednesday.

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.

Red Dead Online is an evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways.

Red Dead Online will be in early access and beta phase for now.

The Verge reports that you can also "tailor your abilities to suit your playstyle" and even form your own posse of seven players. The company is also silent on the game's microtransaction system, which is expected to follow GTAV and its "Shark Card" method of separating players from their real-world money in exchange for in-game items which, oddly for a game that is entirely based around the concept of stealing what you want, are often not available any other way.
