RED DEAD ONLINE BETA LAUNCH

Recommended Posts

ALifeOfMisery

EARLY ACCESS STARTS TODAY

 

mtO4E3J.png


The Red Dead Online Beta is launching this week with early access beginning today. We are easing our servers and systems into handling the increasingly larger player base by scaling up the online population throughout this week – until Friday the 30th – at which point the Beta will be open to everyone with a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2.

 

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.  

 

Here are the rollout specifics:

 

Tuesday, November 27th: All Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition owners. Please note, players who purchased the physical Ultimate Edition must redeem the Ultimate Edition code in the packaging to be eligible.


Wednesday, November 28th: All players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26th according to our data.


Thursday, November 29th: All players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 between October 26th to October 29th according to our data.


Friday, November 30th: All players who own Red Dead Redemption 2.

We are aiming to deliver a stable and fun experience while collecting as much crucial information and feedback as possible to help us continually improve Red Dead Online. As with any Beta period, we plan to take the time necessary throughout to make Red Dead Online a complete, fun and fully-functional experience, which may take several weeks or months as we continually work to fix bugs, improve systems and implement player feedback into current or future plans.

 

If you encounter technical issues of any sort, please visit our dedicated Rockstar Support site to find help or report these issues. And we strongly encourage everyone to send us feedback on your experience, from ways to improve gameplay to suggestions for future content – we want to know what you like, love or dislike and what you’d like to see added, changed or implemented into Red Dead Online. Please visit reddeadonline.com/feedback to share your experiences and input with us.

 

Make sure you’re staying tuned here at the Rockstar Newswire for regular updates about Red Dead Online, including new content additions, features, changes, and other news about the game.

The world of Red Dead Online will be a continually expanding experience. There will also be some additions and updates throughout the Beta period. Starting this week, you can ride with friends in a Posse, set up your Camp, embark on cooperative story-based missions or go head-to-head in competitive series, find strangers throughout the world to help (or hurt), tackle spontaneous Free Roam challenges, go hunting, fishing, bond with your horse, explore with friends or on your own (but look out for ambushes), and much more. 

 

All the while, you’ll accumulate XP through your explorations and encounters that counts towards your rank and provides added bonuses. Unlock items and improve your attributes while you progress. You can also take on Award challenges throughout your open-world experiences to earn Awards in 12 categories like combat, hunting, sharpshooter and survivalist. 

 

Red Dead Online begins with creating your character. Detail your appearance and attributes before you set out on your journey from Sisika Penitentiary where you’ll acquire a horse, set up a Camp, hunt down a treasure, equip your first Ability Card and meet some fateful characters with a larger story to tell; one that involves chasing truth, revenge, and honor.

In Red Dead Online, your honor will shift high and low based on your decisions and behavior. You’ll shape your honor through your choices: from life or death decisions to natural interactions such as caring for your horse.

 

In addition to the world responding to you in subtly different ways, you’ll also notice the nature of certain missions will reveal themselves to you based on your current honor state. 

 

Free Roam Missions


Head over to the Stranger icons throughout the map alone or with your Posse to embark on Free Roam Missions. You’ll see some familiar faces along the way, and these missions can vary based on how noble or nefarious you are – for example, an honorable gunslinger may be asked to help escort a convoy, defending it from attacking gangs or even other players’ Posses, whereas a dishonorable outlaw may be asked to help spring a felon from the law.

 

A Land of Opportunities

 

Honor also plays into this deeper cooperative strand for two to four players that we will continually build upon. In A Land of Opportunities, you’ll be faced with a multi-part series of missions, with some parts changing as your honor changes on a larger journey to seek truth and justice, or revenge.

Of course, Red Dead Online comes packed with all new competitive game play. The Beta includes 5 new modes at launch that are part of a larger series of Showdowns, and you can also enter your trusted steed into races including point-to-point, lap and open races strewn across the map.

 

Enter one of the Showdown Series Markers for fast matchmaking into a variety of modes:

 

Shootout & Team Shootout


Classic gunfight modes with unlimited lives. Compete to rack up the most kills before the timer runs out. Sudden death will trigger in the event of a tie: whoever gets the first kill wins.

 

Make it Count


A true test of resourcefulness in two game modes: use nothing but a bow and a handful of arrows or throwing knives to be the last one standing. With a gradually shrinking player area, there’s nowhere to run.

 

Most Wanted


A tactical race to the top. Every kill pushes you up the scoreboard, but watch out: the closer to the top you are, the more points everyone else gets for killing you.

 

Hostile Territory


Work in teams to control the land. Capture a territory to start racking up points: the team with most points wins - or you can win outright by capturing every territory.

 

Name your Weapon


Demonstrate your personal specialty in this free-for-all or team based match: the trickier the weapon you use to land the killing blow, the more points you get.

Look out for more details and tips around all of the Red Dead Online Beta gameplay in the days ahead. And be sure to check the Companion App or log in to  Social Club to see when you can jump into the Beta. As always, we want to hear from you and we ask for your help especially during the Beta process. In addition to reporting bugs, technical issues, glitches and exploits at https://support.rockstargames.com, please continue to send us your feedback and suggestions at reddeadonline.com/feedback.

 


We also ask for your help in keeping Red Dead Online a fun and fair environment for everyone. Please use the in-game reporting tools to report any abusive behavior, cheating or exploits you see occurring during the Beta, or that you happen to see posted on external sites like YouTube. A friendly reminder that our longstanding copyright policy rules about posting material from Rockstar games applies now as ever – any videos encouraging cheating in any way are subject to takedown.


You may notice some areas of the in-game menus are not yet accessible or available during this early period of the Beta, such as the Red Dead Online in-game Store which will eventually open up to provide the option of purchasing gold bars to directly acquire cosmetic items like Camp décor, or a special style for your weapons.


We hope that all player progress during this early period of the Beta will be able to remain intact long term, however as with many betas for large scale online experiences such as this, there is always the chance that we may need to implement rank or other stat resets in case of issues.

Stay tuned for more updates to Red Dead Online over the coming weeks and months.

For f*cks sake, stop asking people to f*cking snitch on others. It does f*ck all. If R* actually implemented a fair system in the first place they could cut out the toxic community before it f*cking festers.

Remove player blips if they are peaceful. Let the griefers and bellends know where each other and they can suck each other off as much as they want.

The newswire says microtransactions are only for cosmetics. If this is true it's a damn well f*cking improvement over GTA O.

That's actually a very good idea--would provide natural incentive for fair play.

So they're just calling it beta to avoid some of the backlash they had with the launch of Gtao?

I know, if you blip is white then it stays off the radar unless you fire a gun then it blips for a few seconds and vanishes but only if they are close. This is to signify the sound and not your location.

Hell to make it fair and realistic just make the excuse that its NPC's telling the law where you are that makes assholes blips stay on the map but if you go away from NPC's and towns then your blips vanishes as well. As in stay away from people and assholes blips vanish.

I must have encountered a bug then. Because the Thoroughbred UE bonus horse that I claimed has no cash option to insure it. Insurance is priced at 5 gold bars. That isn't cosmetic only in my book.

They can't be this idiotic though. Lying straight in the newswire? Have you encountered other things as well that are non cosmetics which require gold bars?

you are right, so  do something. 

Send in a BUG REPORT to the link they supplied.

 

I am not picking on you personally, but I have seen this a thousand times. People will complain non-stop but will not take 5 minutes to submit it to their official site.

 

I suggest we flood that site with questions about PvE lobbies and co-op play.

Already did regarding the horse insurance, before copying the Newswire over here. I agree, no point me complaining here and not to R*.

 

A coordinated response regarding PvE, invite, solo lobbies, in the form of flooding the response site, as you suggest, is a fantastic idea.

 

I've just sent a message myself and I implores everyone who is concerned about the lack of lobby options to do the same.

No, this is the only thing so far. I hope it's a bug. I've reported it.

Here is what I sent them.

Everyone should send something similar.

 

 

I didn't see any options to log into a friendly co-op lobby, only PvP based.
Is this not a feature of RDO?
I would much rather play co-op with friends and go hunting in peace in a PvE based lobby.
In fact, I don't want to spend any time at all around people who would ruin my enjoyment of this great game.

Thank you.

What they are saying I believe is Microtransactions won't be used to buy In game money like GTA Online, but rather Cosmetic items only. Insurance papers, Outfits and a horse are cosmetics.

No KD in this game it looks like? I see player kills but not a ratio.

I don't see how horse insurance is a cosmetic?

 

I'm sure it's a bug, as not a single other person has posted that they have seen the same issue. 

 

I've reported it in any case.

FYI horse insurance does not mean what it does in GTAO. You don't lose your horse upon death if you don't have insurance. What insurance does is related to horse recovery. It's more of a luxury.

As far as I know, no.

 

Insurance is to do with recovering your horses cores after it gets critically injured/killed. Not sure how exactly it works yet beyond that.

This!! They need to have hardcore servers that will not let your blip show unless close by, etc. Also submit this to R* feedback please.

I got a response:

 

I'm Oliver a Rockstar Gamer here to help.

Unfortunately as the beta has only just rolled out there are some teething issues which are being worked on.

Thank you for letting us know.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Oliver

 

I guess that means it's a bug.

I was always sure it was a bug and this gives me a little hope.
