Red Dead Online Release Date: HUGE Leak reveals important NEW PS4, Xbox One features (Pic: ROCKSTAR)
Red Dead Redemption 2 has only just released, and players are only just starting to figure out the game's myriad features, but that doesn't mean people aren't looking forward to the online portion of the game, too
Our own Jordan Oloman ploughed a massive 70+ hours into the game during his Red Dead Redemption 2 Review – and still, there's more to come in the game, too.
Anyone that picked up Red Dead Redemption 2 will automatically be given access to Red Dead Online – a portion of the game that'll operate a bit like GTA Online after that released when GTAV launched back on the 360 and PS3.
Thanks to data miners that revealed information from the RDR2 Companion App officially launched by Rockstar, we could have our first information about the Online mode, as well as the PC release of the game, too.
The details uncovered in the companion apps code suggest that, similarly to GTA Online, Red Dead Online features an adversary mode.
Knowing Rockstar, it's likely that the mode will operate in the same wasas GTA Online's (in)famous feature.
Adversary Modes are different player vs player modes in which several players go up against another group of players in different ways. One adversary mode apes the Battle Royale style found in Fortnite and PUBG over in GTA Online, so you can possibly look forward to some Wild West BR action.
The code also seems to suggest that the mode will include 'seamless PvE' in the online mode – we're keen to see what this means.
The Rockstar Editor is also present in the code – a feature that lets players record, edit, and share videos created in the game.
When is the Red Dead Online Release Date?
Whilst it won't be the full release, Rockstar Games has stated that the Red Dead Online Beta will begin next month, November 2018.
During the announcement for the new Red Dead Online mode, Rockstar Games described the mode as "a new online connected experience set against the backdrop of Red Dead Redemption 2's enormous open world."
