Vote and share why. 

I am going to guess most people will be playing this game with at least one person. I myself will be. One of my buddies plans on getting it with me so we will play through the campaign at the same speed then hop online. Other people have mentioned getting it but aren't big fans of the first one so they may wait for a price drop.

My actual answer will probably (sadly) most likely be "Not at all" so I voted " Solo (Lone wolfing it) ".

What happens these days if one attempts to access an online mode on PSN if you have no subscription? I never did have a sub on my PS3 and since I don't have a PS4 I have no idea how this works.

I will be lone wolfing it too, only 1-2 of my friends play games and we are no where near dedicated enough to link up and play together!

Quite interesting to read this, thought I was maybe all alone in preferring solo or just a "tiny" close knit group of friends playing together.

Having the option of a co-op style mode could possibly be something rather interesting but I'm not sure the infrastructure will be in place for this with RDR2. The real reason why I mention this though is that I have some friends that are Far Cry fans and with the up and coming Far Cry 5 we're contemplating getting it to have some wicked fun together on PC when it releases.

Would be pretty awesome if RDR/RDR2 has some form of co-op modes too to work through the campaign!

If I play it will most definitely be in a group. What is the point of playing a game that is all about gangs and such without being in one yourself? 

Not against it but instead it's just because I'm too cheap to fork out a subscription for a single game that I might occasionally play with others on a console that I don't even own yet.

In GTA V I played a few random bits and pieces here and there (some of the races were pretty cool) and took part in a few activities with groups of random people but never ventured into the more involved activities such as heists because my latency just didn't make it very enjoyable (even if I didn't get disconnected and kicked to a new session every few minutes).

I once got stuck waiting for over five minutes just between shots in a game of golf and shortly after it came back I got disconnected. I could chat with the fella I was playing with but both of us were stuck waiting for the game to advance. Thinking back now I can't imagine why I didn't have the urge to spend real money on anything related to the online experience...

Group more than anything. I am sure I will play solo or with just one other person as well but it is always fun to play multiplayer servers that allow a good amount of people in a group. Easier to run your own area of the map and not have to worry about people being dbags.

I didn't even consider that. I forget that I have to pay to play online because I do it once a year. I don't go month to month. I get where you are coming from on that for sure dude. I was like that a few years back when I was in a dry spell with gaming.

I voted solo as well. Typically with RDR I did that, only playing in groups if I happen to meet a person or two in the session that want to clear a hideout or 2.  I found a lot when I played in groups, the posse would grow pretty big, and found people arguing over the headsets and then shooting each other because they disagreed about whatever.  I would say more accurately if I do play in a group, no more than 4 or 5.  I like playing solo because you can just go and do whatever.  Plus, more exp points for clearing hideouts on your own.

Yeah I remember this happening too. Fun times. It would just get to a point where it would stale the game and I would stay offline for a few days.

I agree.  Plus the more people in your posse, the less experience points you get.  It's all divided among the posse.  Call me greedy but I'd rather do it on my own or with 1 or 2 other people and get more exp points.

The only time I will play online will be with one or two good friends (more if they are online at the same time).

It would also be likely to be in a private session (if available) but that will depend on how the multiplayer works out for RDR2.  If it's anything like GTAV, I won't want to mix it up with randoms.  ....a good portion of which are simply out to grief others IME.

Being able to be on a server with just my friend would be great and increase the amount of time I actually spend online. Not sure it will be an option but I am hoping for it.

I had been playing for months with friends (co-op) on GRW and we have a good relationship that is carrying over to other titles.  In fact, I convinced them both to pick up GTAV so we can play closed sessions together.  One friend never played the title and the other played it on PS3 but never on PS4.

I stopped playing PvP for the most part many years ago simply out of frustration in dealing with most randoms.  ....so I have stuck with solo and co-op play.  

I've already started putting the bug in their ear about RDR2 so I'm hoping that if the experience in GTAV keep them entertained, their excitement for RDR2 will grow.

GTAV has the option to play online with just friends and NPCs and I can't see any reason RDR2 won;t also include that as well.  Not everyone likes the PvP experience in the open mode due to "griefers", etc.  (including myself).

Games like this I like the co-op interaction.  I like being able to just hang out with friends and blow stuff up in the game.

 Me too. Had more fun in GTA IV playing a LAN game then I did in GTA V, the whole "good rep" thing felt a bit odd for a Grand Theft Auto game - sometimes we just want to cause havoc without repercussions and GTA V felt like it was heavily discouraging this (I may have missed something as I haven't played a lot in it but it just felt "off").
