Small group of Red Dead Redemption 2 players started with Red Dead Online
Rockstar Games announced earlier this month that the Red Dead Online beta would launch before the end of November, but it’s now November 25th and no new information has yet been released. The developer seems to be preparing for the launch of the multiplayer mode of Red Dead Redemption 2, as it appears that several players have already started the beta.

The UltraGamerz website found that a small percentage of players have started unlocking achievements created specifically for Red Dead Online. We see that Breakout has been unlocked by different players and a previous leak already showed that this is the intro to the multiplayer. About 0.01 percent of all players have completed this challenge, suggesting the beta launch is not far off. These achievements are likely to be unlocked by the developers of Red Dead Online and testers who must ensure that major bugs are spotted early.
Little information about Red Dead Online has been released by Rockstar Games, but the Trusted Reviews website has leaked some news at an earlier stage. Violating the nondisclosure agreement resulted in a fine of more than a million euros for the site, but this does not have to raise any doubts as to the authenticity of the information.
According to the information from the site, three modes will be available at the start of Red Dead Online: Battle Royale, Money Grab, and Revive & Survive. Money Grab is all about securing bags of money and getting them back to your camp as quickly as possible. Revive and Survive is a deathmatch where two teams compete against each other while your injured teammates heal within a set period of time. Unfortunately, information about the Battle Royale mode is not available.
In Red Dead Online you walk around in an open world where you can perform various tasks and missions that earn you money and XP, with which you can purchase new items. In the cities, non-player characters will decorate their storefronts in the morning and repack their belongings in the evening. Players can buy and upgrade tents. The website Rockstar Intel claims to have found in the files of Red Dead Redemption 2 also indications that players in Red Dead Online can own vehicles and buildings. In any case, it is obvious that this function is intended for multiplayer mode, because these options are not available in the single player.
