Unsurprisingly, Red Dead Online has a Battle Royale-style mode

Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

"As with all of our releases, we will strive to make the launch of Red Dead Online the best it can possibly be, and we ask that the community share that spirit with us over the next weeks and months".

Most Battle Royales, like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds feature around 100 players but Red Dead Online's Make It Count mode only allows for up to 32.

And arguably, with an even bigger, more popular game such as Red Dead Redemption 2, it's plausible that the launch of Red Dead 2 Online could be even more massive and stressful for the Rockstar servers.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now on PS4 and Xbox One. Of course, this all takes place within Red Dead Redemption 2's large, open world.

The games' servers appear to be buckling under the weight of what we assume are hundreds of thousands of eager players wanting to experience the mode. Today, all Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition owners will have access to the Beta. Please note, players who purchased the physical Ultimate Edition must redeem the Ultimate Edition code in the packaging to be eligible.

How do you take this decision now? "I understand [CONMEBOL] are under a lot of pressure", he said. Boca fans were prevented from attending due to a blanket ban on away supporters in Argentina.

If you bought the game within three days of its release, you are rewarded with access to online from Thursday, and if you were so slack that you weren't out in the Wild West within those first few days then you have to wait til Friday.

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. On Wednesday, players who played the game on October 26th will gain access.

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.

November 29: Red Dead Online expands to those who played prior to October 29.

Explore this huge world solo or with friends. Red Dead's weapons might not have made for the slickest gunplay in comparison to its battle royale competitors, so leaning into something more low-tech could prove an effective twist on the formula.
