Red Dead Online Beta Live Now

Red Dead Online Beta is now open to everyone who owns Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 or Xbox One.

Although many players are already exploring the online multiplayer mode of Western action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games for the past few days, some were sitting ducks waiting for their turn.

Rockstar has allowed owners of RDR2 Ultimate Edition to cut in early into the Red Dead Online Beta, while others were waiting a day or two more but for many, that was too much to wait for and finally, everyone who owns a copy of the game can jump in starting today.

Experience the vast landscape of RDR2 full of cities, town and the folks in it shared with other players. The developers have blended what they learned over the recent years with the classic multiplayer elements from original Red Dead Redemption.

The open world of the game is for you to explore on your own or with friends in a Posse, set up camps or take on cooperative story-based missions. You may come across strangers that you can hurt or help and go to hunting or fishing as you like.

In your spare time, players can even bond with their horse but everyone should always look out for a sudden ambush at all times. Based on your behavior, choices and decisions, your honor will go high or low. Even your natural interaction with the horse counts.

Because whether you take a grave decision or choose to act kindly, the world around you will respond in time through subtly different ways. Also, depending on the current honor state of a player, certain missions will reveal themselves to you.

With the inclusion of online multiplayer mode, gameplay becomes more competitive and the Beta has 5 new modes at start with so much more to come in future. You can go to races with your trusted steed from one point to another or for open races throughout the map.

While you are at it, you can get the taste of some classic gunfight modes and get the most number of kills before time runs out. Battle royale tests players with a bow and arrows or throwing knives to become last one standing in "Make it Count".

Red Dead Online Battle Royale Revealed

Leave your guns behind and pick up some bows or knives to enter Red Dead Online battle royale arena!

It's been over a month that developer/publisher Rockstar Games released their most anticipated title of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2 that led to huge sales and stellar reviews. The online multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online also started today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Earlier, there was buzz of the multiplayer to feature a battle royale-like mode but many has laughed it off because almost every game out there these days have a mode like that but now there is more evidence on social media to back that rumor up.

Recently, a list of activities from RDO has been posted on Twitter by illogical Mods ahead of the beta's launch that supports the theory of battle royale.



RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Early Access Content

The list reveals the inclusion of a few jobs, races and the most talked about battle royale mode. Even though Rockstar is joining the trend like many others, they are keeping their word of not being a "copycat" unlike every other big title from the genre.

Make It Count pits up to 32 players on a shrinking area for a last man standing confrontation but this is not your typical battle royale mode where you engage in a shootout. Instead of any six shooters, you are only armed with bows or knives as weapons.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

Depending on where you stand at the moment, you can have either one of them to duke it out with fellow outlaws. For instance, you will end up with the bow if you are playing in Saint Denis Plantation and Tall Trees. Stillwater Creek and Strawberry hands you throwing knives.

A cowboy conflict is often sorted out with some shootout but throwing bows and knives in exchange for guns was a good twist though. Restricting players to silent weapons like these put more emphasis on stealth and thus, creates more tension.

The developers also created a few bounty jobs, where you interact with a character named Horley and take tasks like hunting down outlaws or avenge the death of a man for his widow. He will also introduce you to horse thief Clay Davies to learn bits of rustling trade.

Players can also engage in various activities the massive map of single player campaign with friends or just go solo. If you miss shootout then there will be a lot of scopes for that regarding battles over territories. Otherwise, what's the point of including the vast amount of weapons in the game?

RELATED: Red Dead Online Beta Begins Tomorrow

May be it is too early to say this but Red Dead Online make a very good move by taking a more stealthy approach to battle royale, which many of the games are not following these days at all. The best part is that, it completely removes any issue that may rise with weapon balance problems.

However, Rockstar may eventually add the traditional battle royale gameplay mechanics in future though. Red Dead Redemption 2 is only rolling out its online multiplayer in beta form but it will take some more time for all players to join the full experience it has to offer.

Red Dead Redemption 2: Undead Nightmare Teased?

Evidence is found within Red Dead Redemption 2 that clearly suggests for a second Undead Nightmare DLC.

The original Red Dead Redemption had a standalone expansion pack titled Undead Nightmare that added a zombie horror-themed single-player campaign, multiplayer modes and cosmetics. Players really loved this idea of an alternate reality take on the game.

When Red Dead Redemption 2 launched a month ago as a prequel to the Western-themed action-adventure title from 2010, everyone wondered to themselves that whether or not developer/publisher Rockstar Games will release the DLC campaign for RDR2.

RELATED: Red Dead Online Battle Royale Revealed

Recently, evidence were found and shared on social media that suggests a second Undead Nightmare DLC on its way. Reddit user BrodytheBeast20 found a creepy Easter egg in a well near Tall Trees that is a direct nod to the acclaimed horror experience.

Although many players are already done with the story campaign and jumped into multiplayer mode Red Dead Online, we would like to warn you that if you haven't finished the game and want to stay away from any spoilers, you should hold your horses here.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2.

Awright, just like the previous title, RDR2 features a playable epilogue where a substitute main character takes place of the protagonist and the control is switched. The game shifts control from Arthur Morgan to John Marston and taking him down to a well in Tall Trees will lead you to the following.



RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Videos Deleted and Restored by YouTube

This hint is more than obvious and a bit on the nose but you can still see it in the dark deep down the well if you light it up with a lantern. Moving the camera angle will show a skeletal-face of Marston, which clearly resembles to the promotional image of the Undead Nightmare DLC.

Now it could either be a simple nod to the original campaign or it could simply foreshadowing his tragic ending after he put up a valiant last stand at the end of the Red Dead Redemption. If this is nothing but a reference to the past, then there is not much to be excited for.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Hits 17 Million Sales

Undead Nightmare was a lengthy playthrough set in the original map of RDR creating a different world with familiar characters. The prequel may follow the same formula to cook up a zombie thriller starring John Marston as playable hero once again.

Aside from an engaging storyline and gameplay, Red Dead Redemption 2 is full of Easter eggs here and there. If one of them turns out to be a tease for an upcoming expansion, it would really be great and would be a better plan than the ones you keep hearing from Dutch.

Red Dead Online Beta Begins Tomorrow

Early access to Red Dead Redemption 2 multiplayer mode Red Dead Online Beta begins tomorrow, November 27.

Right after Western action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games is released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, people might have forgotten that there is a real world out there and got lost into the open world of the game.

Now that many have finished playing the main game, players are now waiting for its online multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online. Rockstar has announced to launch the beta on November 27, 5:30 AM PT and only will open up to the owners of RDR2 Ultimate Edition.

The next day, on November 28, those who played the game on the very date of release can access the beta. Then on November 29, it will welcome players who joined the rodeo in first three days of release, which is October 26 to 29.

Finally on Friday, November 30, everyone worldwide gets to join the online multiplayer for party. The studio is highly optimistic about delivering a classic multiplayer experience full of cohesive narrative and cooperative gameplay.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Early Access Content

Much like GTA Online, players can create and customize their own characters and use the full map of RDR2. You can go solo or play the mode with up to seven other players to join a posse that goes out for hunting and fishing together.

Some of the camp system from the main game will be available in the mode and you are allowed to attack rival gangs in their hideouts or fight other players. There are even rumors of including some kind of battle royale mode but that has yet to be confirmed.

Initially Rockstar Games revealed only bits of details about the mode ahead of its release that both casual and seasoned players can enjoy regardless. In the mean time, it would be nice seeing the studio getting rid of the bugs and glitches to make Red Dead Redemption 2 as smooth as possible.

With constant updates and adjustments, the experience of multiplayer through Red Dead Online has the potential to make the franchise an exceptional commercial success as it will continue to grow for the community over time.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Videos Deleted and Restored by YouTube

YouTube deletes and then restores back Red Dead Redemption 2 controversial videos of killing feminist NPC.

Developer/publisher Rockstar Games didn't launch Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 with intent of just riding horses and camping in the woods but it also involves a lot of rooting tooting cowboy shooting.

Since the in-game lead character Arthur Morgan is an outlaw, you expect him being involved in some activities during the gameplay that may not be pleasant but that is okay. However, it seems that YouTube wasn't so sure about it before it became a matter of concern.

Recently, YouTube took down a gaming channel known as Shirrako Gaming of 500,000  subscribers base for a gameplay video they uploaded earlier, claiming the content have broke their community guidelines by showing the player attacking a feminist NPC (Non-Player Character).

Titled "Annoying Feminist Fed To Alligator", the video depicts Arthur attacks a female suffragette before saddling her up on his horse and then feeding her to an alligator to take a chomp at her. He then stomped her with boots for a while afterwards.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Hints PC Version

Now such display of violence against suffragette woman NPC in RDR2 are often labeled online as attacks against feminists and these videos are quickly becoming very popular to a certain part of gaming community these days.

YouTube apparently couldn't tell real footage of violence from the ones taken from popular video game and took them down for breach of guidelines but these contents are only prohibited if they come under fire, which t didn't.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App for Mobile

Shirrako Gaming promptly took Twitter to address the takedown of his channel by the video-sharing website for promoting violence by killing a female NPC.

Immediately after the ban, a massive fan-outcry followed over the deletion move by the site and upon realizing their mistake, the action is reviewed again and the channel was eventually restored the following day with all videos.

Seeing the matter going out of hands, the company's wider gaming team handled the situation and YouTube's head of gaming, Ryan Wyatt confirmed that they will educate the reviewers from repeating such mistakes in future to avoid such inconvenience.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Early Access Content

Here is the video in question that created the so called feminist controversy on YouTube regarding the game.




RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

Now that the air is clear once again, people are hitting search for Red Dead Redemption 2 videos where women's rights activists are getting punched in the face, run over by trains or even thrown into mine shafts in the Wild West.

However, these controversial video clips are now restricted only to audience above 18 years of age and that clearly makes sense. Hopefully, the misogynistic attitude towards outspoken feminists within a game is not going to be the subject of their concern anymore.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Hits 17 Million Sales

Rockstar Games has shipped more copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 within a week than the original did in eight years.

The most anticipated video game of 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games was launched on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to meet with immense success that even surpassed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Recently, an official financial report from Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive has revealed that so far they have shipped over a whooping 17 million copies of their critically acclaimed Western-themed action-adventure game.

However, this sell-in figure means that there are numbers included for physical copies that are already shipped to retailers but yet not obtained by customers. No matter which way you want to look at it, that is an extremely impressive number in just 12 days after launch.

This narrative open-world game debuted with the biggest opening weekend by earning over $725 million in just three days and then outsold the eight years of overall sales of original Red Dead Redemption in just eight days.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App for Mobile

Even Take-Two and Rockstar Games have admitted that Red Dead Redemption 2 has exceeded their expectation by crossing such landmark in so little time. Previously, only Grand Theft Auto V was able to pull such feat and ended up earning over $6 billion till date.

This insane level of success also comes with a much appreciated critical acclaim for RDR2, which has undoubtedly raised the bar for other games in general these days. Although there are reports of a few bugs but Rockstar is working to provide a fix soon.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Hints PC Version

Fans have been digging up evidence for Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version and got hint from the game's mobile app.

From the very moment of announcement to this date as the game is launched already, people have been still asking whether or not PC version of Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming from developer/publisher Rockstar Games.

Enthusiast fans even dug up a leaked listing for the game on PC and LinkedIn profile of a Rockstar employee which suggests his involvement with the version. However, the new source of hints came from the game's mobile app launched earlier.

Newly surfaced codes from RDR2 companion app suggests that this open world adventure could make its way to PC, if not soon then later. The series of codes also indicates to the possible introduction of virtual reality within the game as well.

Despite the presence of code parameters that clearly points out PC references and frame limit, some are pointing this out as a possibility for a future desktop app for the game. Then again, that doesn't really explain the mentions of Oculus Rift.

RDR2 is already is the most-anticipated game of the year that is taking over by keeping players busy on their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Many experts are even speculating that the game might end up selling 20 million units by the end of this year.

Even though, Rockstar didn't launch the first game, Red Dead Redemption on PC after eight years of its initial release or the Red Dead Revolver from 2004, they might want to reconsider this time and cash in on the trending hype of the game.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

Besides, the company does have a history of making surprise PC releases as they did with Grand Theft Auto V, denying all possibly and reports of PC port but ended up releasing one eventually after two years of the original release.

However, taking into account that the Red Dead series may remain as a console-exclusive since neither Red Dead Revolver nor Red Dead Redemption has made it to the platform, long after exceeding the time GTA5 took but we never know that for sure.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Weaponry Details

Rockstar Games never gone on record by officially stating that there won't be a Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version ever and therefore leaving possibilities for us. They might as well break the trend and release the game for high-end PC with impressive graphics.

Somewhere down the line, players may really get their wish fulfilled by them but till then, be thankful that this masterpiece of a game came out after all these years and keep enjoying it on consoles or on YouTube (if you don't own a console).

Will Red Dead Redemption 2 Be on PC?

Those who aren't playing the game on PS4 and Xbox One this week are wondering if Red Dead Redemption 2 going to be released on PC?

As soon as developer/publisher Rockstar Games released their most anticipated Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Friday, people are taking sick leaves and ditching plans to spend time with it.

Those who aren't, are busy wondering if the biggest game of 2018 is ever going to be released on PC? This has been the most asked question about RDR2 so far and we couldn't help ourselves but wonder if there is any possibility of that?

Will Red Dead Redemption 2 Be on PC?

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

For now, the answer would be, no. However, we cannot just brush off any possibilities for that to happen without getting any official statement from Rockstar yet. Pleading from players for a PC version of their game is nothing new and not like something the world didn't saw before.

When Red Dead Redemption came out in 2010 as the previous installment of the series (but the story of RDR2 takes place earlier), outcries from fans for a PC version of the game was heard but the studio didn't do anything in over eight years.

Besides, playing these games on PC has their own perks and one of the biggest one of them are the usage of mods. The company stated that making a PC compatible version was never part of their plan but they can consider it in the future when it will be technically and business-wise viable for them.

Rumors were heard about PC release earlier but other than a leaked retail listings and a LinkedIn resume, we have nothing. It seems that Rockstar Games is still unfazed by the craze for a PC version of their game but that doesn't necessarily mean that they won't ever do that.

RELATED: Buy Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox One and Save $100

In past, the studio released their greatest hit game Grand Theft Auto V in 2013, solely for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A year after, it came out for PS4 and Xbox One before the PC port was finally released six months later.

In case of their neo-noir detective action-adventure title L.A. Noire, Rockstar prioritized the console versions as well. Nevertheless, the comparison between the delays of GTA5 for PC release against an eight year of reluctance is obviously ridiculous.


RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Weaponry Details

The developers definitely put their best efforts on the game as the visuals look chiseled and absolutely stunning on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles. Aside from next level graphics, RDR2 performs even better on these platforms than their standard versions.

This is another reason for that entire PC outcry because the graphical superiority of the platform and the smooth gameplay of 60 FPS, which even has its own line of jokes and memes. Bottom line is, unless Rockstar Games officially announces Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC, fans can do nothing but hope for it.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App for Mobile

Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost upon us and developer Rockstar Games announced a companion app for the game.

We are only a few days away from the endgame now where developer/publisher Rockstar Games releases their most anticipated title of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2 and it completely takes over our lives as we become outlaw Arthur Morgan.
