The online beta for Rockstar Games’s open-world wild west adventure, Red Dead Redemption 2, starts November 27, promising players the option to play solo.
Players have had a month to roam the open plains of Red Dead Redemption 2’s impressive rendition of the American West at their own pace, but starting November 27, this all changes. According to the Rockstar Newswire, gamers who purchased the Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition are set to get first dibs, with everyone else joining in the days that follow. All players who purchased the game will be able to join the beta on Friday, November 30. The rollout breaks down as follows:
- Tuesday, November 27: Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition owners.
- Wednesday, November 28: Players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26th according to Rockstar’s data.
- Thursday, November 29: Players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 between October 26th to October 29 according to Rockstar’s data.
- Friday, November 30: All players who own Red Dead Redemption 2.
Rockstar promises that players will be able to play the online mode solo, or form and join a Posse to hunt, fish, visit towns, take on enemy gangs, hunt for treasure, engage other players, and more. Gameplay details are still relatively sparse, though Rockstar says players will be able to customize their character and tailor abilities to suit individual online play style. Stay tuned for more information regarding solo play, and OnlySP’s impressions on the game modes.
