Red Dead Online could make Rockstar's western a GTA V-size juggernaut

NewsRed Dead Red Dead Online Announced Launching November 2018
By Ben Walker

Imran Sarwar, director of design at Rockstar North, specified in an interview with IGN that the team is now focusing on "role-playing and morality" as distinguishing factors from GTA Online: "We want people to settle into their online characters and feel like every activity makes sense for the character, the setting and the time". Ahead of its launch on October 26, the company has announced a few early details about a mode it calls "Red Dead Online".

"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", a message from Rockstar Games reads. Specifically, the studio says it expects turbulence at launch, and to work with the community to overcome "teething problems" and develop Red Dead Online over time. However, the mode's popularity arguably came at the cost of the single player experience: teased DLC never materialized, and numerous features GTA Online has received over time haven't been implemented into the core game.

According to Rockstar, "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".

Will it be as big as GTA Online? Now we've got our first look at what that service entails with our first look at the Red Dead Online beta and what that means for players.

Surprisingly Rockstar issued only a simple press release and the IGN interview, with no new trailer or screenshots, which implies they want to keep the focus on the single-player for now.

"Red Dead Online" will continue to receive updates throughout its life cycle as it relies on the base "Red Dead Redemption 2" to exist as its foundation.
