If you bought an Ultimate Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2, what are you doing reading this article? Go play Red Dead Online. It’s live as of this morning for you already. Everybody else is waiting for the scheduled rollout day depending on just how hardcore a purchaser/log-inner he or she is. “This will help ensure that our servers can handle a steadily growing volume of concurrent players in the early hours and first days of the Beta and hopefully reduce the likelihood of any server crashes during the launch week as we get things up and running,” Rockstar wrote yesterday.

In the meantime, players are waiting for official confirmation on what exactly is coming in this online version of the game. Leaks have thus far shown multiple new campaign missions and modes for the multiplayer template, including – you guessed it – a battle royale.

When R* announces that the first people allowed on RDO will be Ultimate edition owners and people who started playing on Day 1. from reddeadredemption

Whether we choose to accept it or not, BR as a genre is sweeping the world. My kid is school age, and there isn’t a single kid from grade 1 and up who is not aware of Fortnite or PUBG. We (the MMO crowd) are not the target audience for BR, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its place or its audience elsewhere.
