The Red Dead Online beta starts tomorrow for owners of the Ultimate Edition of the game

Red Dead Redemption 2

As Rockstar Games announced on Monday, the early access period for the Red Dead Online beta began on Tuesday morning at 8:30 AM ET, but there's a catch - the only people who can play right now are those who bought the Ultimate Edition of the game (which retails for $99.99).

Explore this huge world solo or with friends. Clocking in at 5.6GB on the PS4, the Red Dead 2 update 1.03 version brings the online component files to the game and then some.

The highly awaited Red Dead Online beta is up today, exactly one month after the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, and we took it for a spin just now to grab some 4K footage of the character creation system. I played the original game's online mode for hours on end and had a blast.

Rockstar Games hasn't detailed anything about Red Dead Online up till now so whether these modes will be available from this week isn't clear.

November 29, 2018: Anyone who played Red Dead Redemption 2 between October 26-29, 2018 will have access to Red Dead Online. Crucially, it confirmed a battle royale mode called Make It Count, but it comes with a twist.

Red Dead Online is available in beta form starting today, and many players have been wondering whether the progress that they make during the beta will carry over into the finished release. Of course, this all takes place within Red Dead Redemption 2's large, open world. Players will be able to participate in fishing, hunting, treasure hunting posses, and camps.

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

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". Finally, on Friday, Red Dead Online will open up to all owners of the game.

As Arekkz notes in his video, markers for the signs appear on the game map, but unless you are in the general vicinity, it won't pop up. One of the new modes includes a battle royale - without guns.
