Kean_1 Posted September 19, 2018 Share Posted September 19, 2018 (edited) I posted this in the online subforum but figured I would post it here as well. RDR2 Online announced for release in November as a beta: https://rockstarintel.com/2018/09/19/red-dead-online-announced-launching-november-2018/ “Today we’re excited to announce Red Dead Online, a new online connected experience set against the backdrop of Red Dead Redemption 2’s enormous open world. 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. Using the gameplay of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 as a foundation, Red Dead Online will be ready to be explored alone or with friends, and will also feature constant updates and adjustments to grow and evolve this experience for all players. Red Dead Online is planned for launch in November 2018, initially as a public beta, with more news to come soon. As with most online experiences of this size and scale, there will inevitably be some turbulence at launch. We look forward to working with our amazing and dedicated community to share ideas, help us fix teething problems and work with us to develop Red Dead Online into something really fun and innovative. Access to Red Dead Online is free to anyone with a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018.” .....and more details about RDO (credit to Kirsty from GTAFORUMS): Quote Summary of IGN's interview with Imran Sarwar and Josh Needleman, of R* North and R* San Diego respectively http://uk.ign.com/articles/2018/09/19/red-dead-online-devs-reveal-first-details -Red Dead Online will launch in November as a public beta -RDO will have multiplayer, cooperative and narrative components untilising the entire map from singleplayer -Easy to play alone or with a group -All the best elements of MP in RDR1 combined with best elements of GTAO -RDR2 and RDO are like separate products -Prefer to let players get to know the world in SP before introducing us to RDO and its mechanics -RDR2 is a massive SP story regardless -RDO will be a change of pace to GTAO - everything will be time/setting appropriate (i.e. no flying horses) -The biggest DLCs of GTAO like heists and gunrunning provided R* with a template for what will work and won't work for RDO -R-* want DLCs for RDO to release quicker and be responsive to what people are enjoying -GTAO will still be getting updates for the foreseeable future -Plan is for RDO and GTAO updates to be staggered in release -Acknowledge that RDO and GTAO will/can have entirely it's own audience but want players to enjoy both alongside each other -Focus will be on role-playing and morality (i.e. don't be an asshole) Edited September 19, 2018 by Kean_1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
