Red Dead Online Beta is Set to Go Live From Tomorrow

Red Dead Online Beta is Set to Go Live From Tomorrow

Not to be outdone by and Wendy's and KFC's recent announcements about breaking into the games industry, long-time monarch of asinine fast-food promotions in video games Burger King is back at it, this time "adding" the feature of creating a Whopper to Red Dead Redemption 2. While we're getting pretty close to the end of the month, this release slate for Red Dead Online still falls in line with that window, proving that they did keep their promise.

- Saturday, December 1: All players who own Red Dead Redemption 2.

In a surprisingly late act of cross-promotion, Burger King is offering a free Whopper to players in Sweden who find all four ingredients in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Rockstar Games will be releasing Red Dead Online first for owners of the Ultimate Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 on Tuesday starting at 8:30 a.m. ET.

If you've played the title more recently, though - today, in particular - you'll get access to the beta a day earlier, on November 26.

For everyone else, you can see below for when you'll have access to the Red Dead Online beta. This allows players to plan ahead and know how many friends they can get together online.

Red Dead Online Beta: Launch Dates and New Details Announced

Maybe it's a sign that a group of internal testers have been progressing through portions of the online beta at the same progress rate? Supposedly, these posses will even be able to own their own camps.

When Red Dead Online was first announced in September, Rockstar Games said that the beta period for this section of the game would launch in November.

You'll be able to attack enemy gangs and their hideouts, as well as take on other players and Posses in spontaneous fights.

When it comes to modes, there will be specific versus and competitive modes although there's not been any details on the rumoured battle royale mode. Will it be better than GTA Online? Considering Red Dead Online will only support 32 players at launch, you should temper expectations.

Much like GTA Online, Red Dead Online will be a "live service", which most likely means you can expect regular content updates to drop over time, as well as some form of microtransactions. You can choose to ignore them if you wish, or join them with other players.
