    Default PS4 | Red Dead Online

    Launching some time in November 2018, ostensibly as a Public Beta, Red Dead Online is the free multiplayer component of Red Dead Redemption 2.

    We know next to nothing about it so far. The most concrete details we have concern the bonus content included with the Ultimate Edition of the game:



    Beyond that, Rockstar have said that they want to take inspiration from the best content updates for GTA Online, specifically mentioning Heists, Gunrunning, The Doomsday Heist, and After Hours.

    They've said that their key goals are keeping the player base together, and that they want it to feel like a Rockstar experience, combining personality, gameplay, style, narrative and variety.

    Never did play RDR online in an AUF posse.

    Can't wait to ghost players and give them a new smile under their neck.

    I wouldn't mind game modes such as one team robbing somewhere and one team being the law that has to prevent them.

    Horse races.
    Fight Clubs.
    Bum tossing....no not that...tossing bums from bars.
    Manual aim shooting contest, shoot the bottles etc.
    Fishing contest, get out the measuring stick!
    Parlour games.
    Drinking games, drunk on the town with a posse?
    Capture the nag, steal a wife from the other team and get her back to your base.

    Beta begins on the 27th for Ultimate owners supposedly. https://www.theverge.com/2018/11/26/...-date-ps4-xbox

    Then the 28th for those who bought it at launch, and Thursday for those who bought it in the first few days of launch before finally opening to all on Friday the 30th November.

    Des, is there a passive mode option in Red Dead Online? In GTAO youíd hold down the trackpad button to bring up the Interaction menu, and passive mode was an option in the list.

    Been looking for one but as yet cant find it..
    Edit. Just read that passive can only be set up on your campsite by raising a flag.. while in there you and all are safe.. venture out and youre buggerd.

    Just tried 900 mtu.. doesnt work like gta5

    Are there free aim only lobbies? And the option to change to auto aim permanently disabled?

    I watched a couple of videos last night, people running around like headless chooks, locking on and then spamming the trigger looked terrible.

    As for being harassed, I like the element of risk where you come across another posse in the wild and they may try to rob you etc. But there should be law and bounties placed on those who attack so they become targets for other payers and a.i law.

    There should definitely be private lobbies though, they could have it so people are free to roam at their own leisure, do missions etc before opening up when they choose to join a public event.


    I think many people though are not interested in pvp at all, they just want the same kind of experience as the single-player, but playing with mates.

    It should go live about 10 minutes from now if you bought a launch day copy. People who bought the Ultimate edition got a 24 hour head start. If you bought it post-launch thereís a slight stagger there too. Theyíre just trying to let the server loads slowly ramp up.

    Time to do the massive updates, renew the psn bizzo, watch two movies while everything downloads,find my headset (I'm sure it's still around this area somewhere) and rejoin the ranks of my AUF family...

    And throw dynamite at their horse...

    Like last time.

    Bloody kakkers.

    No passive mode, no invite only lobbies, no free aim lobbies, no more MTU trick. Not looking promising

    Played this last night and i enjoyed it

    Was on my own just exploring no other players around what so ever until about an hour of playing and i got disconnected it then put in with other players. All the light red dots i was picturing instant deaths happening very soon.
    To my surprise though everyone was chill no1 hunted me down like in gta v days everyone just did there own thing

    Did a mission with a group and i enjoyed it alotthe slower pace was great, alittle crazy when the shit hit the fan but we all pulled through helping eachother.

    Will def be playing this more often now then ark XD just hope it doesnt reset on release

    So far it is playable with no HUD and free aim, happy about that.

    Well at-least the free roaming, hunting and missions are, I guess it will be difficult to out-gun human opponents when they have auto lock on. Hope they bring free aim lobby lock soon, and gambling.


    EDIT - So does Honour Among Horse Thieves have to be completed with randoms? Invite is greyed out.

    Better mute randoms in case of spoilers, only just started chapter 3 in the singleplayer.

    Online doesn't open up for me until 11pm tonight so looks like I won't get to try it until the morning. Not a worry since after two weeks I'm still only on chapter 2. I've been moving house IRL so between that and spending time with bub and the missus I haven't had plenty of time to play. The time I have had has mostly been spent hunting too.

    Default PS4 | Red Dead Online

    Had great fun in a posse with Smajs, Chiips, and Elmo last night. The four player story missions are great, they basically just feel like co-op version of Stranger missions from the SP. The stealth missions I did with Smajs were awesome, even if I basically blew our cover every time lol.

    The positives:

    • As I mentioned, the story missions are great fun in co-op. I havenít even tried the free roam stuff or online Stranger missions yet. If they can keep these coming over time then the game will probably work.

    • Itís great fun for just goofing around. I think we spent half of the night just lassoing each other and dragging each other behind horses

    • The netcode felt fine to me and I didnít have a single disconnect or timeout, which is amazing on launch night for a game with a playerbase this big.

    • The world does have way fewer NPCs roaming around, but apart from that it seems identical to SP. All weather effects are in, and the animal spawn rates seemed identical. I was hoping for that, but not sure weíd get it.

    • The player customisation stuff seems good, thereís a heap of new clothing that was never in SP.



    For me the negatives so far:

    • No passive mode sucks balls. If they donít fix this itíll probably kill the game for me. I want to fish without roving packs of lunatics trying to headshot me.

    • They need a way better fast travel system, especially for getting to your camp. In GTA Online you could just jump in a jet, but here itís way worse than in SP even, because youíre dealing with a map thatís suddenly twice as wide (and you do have to go from one end to the other), and you canít travel in the cinematic camera mode because there are roving packs of lunatics who want to kill you, and your horse sucks majorly in comparison to the SP horses. Stage coach travel is expensive when you have no money, and the train canít be used for fast travel in Online.

    • It really feels like theyíre nickel and diming the playerbase in the most cynical way possible. My horse will probably starve to death at some point because I canít afford to feed it. There needs to be better random loot lying around in places like gang hideouts.

    • There are bugs, although they are minor for the most part. Sometimes it takes a few attempts to sell items to a Butcher, and there are quite a few clipping issues with clothing. My female characterís pony tail sticks upwards at about fifteen degrees when riding like itís fixed there with concrete, and looks ridiculous. To fix that I got a very expensive haircut, but that one has this horrific issue too, where the last 30 cm of her pony tail sticks straight out from the front of her chest, like her hair has a boner. Smajs and I couldnít keep it together when watching it in cutscenes lol. And I paid a fucking fortune for that haircut! Haha.
