The online multiplayer mode of Rockstar Games' Red Dead Redemption 2 will start rolling out this week. From riding horses to hunting rare animals, fans are more than excited to share this marvellous experience with their friends.
Exactly a month after releasing the offline-campaign mode of Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar Games has announced that the game's online mode will start rolling out by tomorrow. The beta version for RDD2 will be available for free to all those gamers who bought the Ultimate Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Those who bought and played the game on its first three days of release, i.e., between October 26-29, will get access to online mode on November 29. Then later on November 30, the online multiplayer mode of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be open for all the players.
The company, which released the world-famous Grand Theft Auto series, released Red Dead Redemption in October and the storyline serves as a prequel to the first game in the series. As earlier reported in Red Dead Redemption 2 review section, players will take on the role of Arthur Morgan, a member of the Van der Linde gang. In the massive open world, Arthur must learn how to survive in the world, which is not as wild as it used to be.
Red Dead Redemption 2 lets you do a variety of thing other than following the storyline. Players can engage in day-to-day activities like hunting, cooking, and playing games with other gang members.
In addition to this, players can also enjoy exploring the open-world and find the hidden easter eggs, like spotting a ghost train, finding clues about aliens and Bigfoot, time travelling, and actually spotting the spaceship.
