Red Dead Redemption 2 Online beta released today – Exact UK start time revealed


Rockstar Games is hosting Red Dead Redemption 2 Online today.

Fans were asking about when the launch of RDR2 Online would begin, and now we know it's today (November 27) that we'll see the first batch of players starting the multiplayer adventure.

Not everyone is eligible, so read our little guide to find out who you are, and when everything goes on the air.

The game will allow players to form their own possessions, hunt and tackle bad guys as they cross the map.

If you have already played, you know what to expect, although the development team has said that they will add to the Online version.

So when does the beta release of RDR2 Online start on PS4 and XBox One?

When is Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Beta coming out?

Only a small group will start Red Dead Redemption 2 Online today.

Rockstar Games has confirmed that those who bought the Ultimate Edition of the game will be eligible to join the live servers when they start today.

The beta will start in 1.30pm UK time .

So, if the withdrawals come out and they're offline, there's time for them to come back to bedtime …

Rockstar Games said, "To help us get into the beta and mitigate significant issues, we will start the early access period from Tuesday, November 27 at 8:30 am EST and gradually scale the player base to full access from Friday 30 November.

"This will help ensure that our servers can handle an ever-increasing volume of concurrent players in the early hours and early days of Beta and hopefully reduce the likelihood of any server crash during the launch week as we put things In practice."

For now, it does not look like there will be any delay for Ultimate Edition players on PS4 or XBox One.

What gameplay is available in beta?

Rockstar Games is calling this beta online, but it seems like most of the current content is there to play.

The development team also plans to add more to the game.

Do not expect all the best parts to be available when you first sign in as it's a beta – though we'll update you with what's available later in the day.

Rockstar said, "With the playability of Red Dead Redemption 2 as a base, Red Dead Online transforms the vast and deeply detailed landscapes, towns, villages and habitats of Red Dead Redemption 2 into a new online world, ready to be shared by design and customize your character, adapt your skills to suit your style of play and head to a new frontier full of things to experience.

"Explore the world alone or with friends Form or join a Posse to train with up to seven players Join the fire at your camp Go out to hunt or fish, visit bustling cities, battle enemy gangs and attack their hiding places seek out missions and interact with familiar characters from the five states, or fight against other outlaws in both spontaneous skirmishes and hasty combat, compete with other players or challenge open-world challenges, and more.

How long will there be a beta?

Rockstar Games is calling this beta online – that means until all servers are resolved and they know how many players will be playing on PS4 and Xbox One.

Wait a few weeks for tweaks and interruptions, and for you to have to update regularly.

Rockstar said: "The launch of Red Dead Online Beta is the first step in what will be a continuously expanding and dynamic world, and the beta period will allow us to deal with the inevitable turmoil of launching any online experience of this size and scale.

"During this process, we will seek out our dedicated community to help us report and correct problems, share ideas and help shape the future of the entire online experience.

"As with all of our releases, we will strive to make the launch of Red Dead Online as good as possible, and we ask the community to share that spirit with us in the coming weeks and months."
