Red Dead Online is a multiplayer-focused action-adventure videogame developed by Rockstar San Diego and published Rockstar Games. It is the online multiplayer mode of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Online Beta was released on November 27, 2018 first for owners of the Ultimate Edition, and gradually opened for more players until November 30, 2018 with everyone gaining access.

While playable only with a copy of Red Dead Redemption II, Red Dead Online is considered a standalone title by Rockstar Games, in the same way Grand Theft Auto Online is for Grand Theft Auto V.


The beta for Red Dead Online launched in full on November 30, 2018. Early access prior to this rolled out incrementally as follows:

  • Tuesday, November 27th: All Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition owners.
  • Wednesday, November 28th: All players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26th according to internal data.
  • Thursday, November 29th: All players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 between October 26th to October 29th.

The Red Dead Online Beta was made available to all Red Dead Redemption 2 players on Friday, November 30 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. When booting up and arriving to the title menu, players will see an option in the top right of the screen to select Online.


Players can create and customize characters and tailor abilities to suit play styles. Once ready, they can explore the world solo or with friends. Posses can be created with up to seven players. Players have options similar to Red Dead Redemption 2, in that they can gather around the fire at camp, head out hunting or fishing, visit towns, battle enemy gangs and attack their hideouts, hunt for treasure, take on missions and interact with familiar characters from across the five states, fight against other outlaws in both spontaneous skirmishes and pitched set-piece battles, and compete with other players or whole Posses in open world challenges.
