Red Dead Online is launching as a public beta in November (via IGN).

It will use the entire single-player map, here’s a summary list I’ve shamelessly stolen from GTAForums

quote:

• Red Dead Online will launch in November as a public beta
• RDO will have multiplayer, cooperative and narrative components untilising the entire map from singleplayer
• Easy to play alone or with a group
• All the best elements of MP in RDR1 combined with best elements of GTAO
• RDR2 and RDO are like separate products
• Prefer to let players get to know the world in SP before introducing us to RDO and its mechanics
• RDR2 is a massive SP story regardless
• RDO will be a change of pace to GTAO - everything will be time/setting appropriate (i.e. no flying horses)
• The biggest DLCs of GTAO like heists and gunrunning provided R* with a template for what will work and won't work for RDO
• R* want DLCs for RDO to release quicker and be responsive to what people are enjoying
• GTAO will still be getting updates for the foreseeable future
• Plan is for RDO and GTAO updates to be staggered in release
• Acknowledge that RDO and GTAO will/can have entirely it's own audience but want players to enjoy both alongside each other
• Focus will be on role-playing and morality (i.e. don't be an rear end in a top hat

lol at the idea that “morality” means not ruining everyone else’s day.

There were some magical glitches weren’t there?

Anyway, have to get into RDO early for the inevitable cash exploits before they get patched and the shark card rinsing begins.

IGN hijacked a train in their hands-on.

quote:

As I climbed over the last carriage, I spotted the driver. A flash of Dead Eye sent four rounds into his chest, and he slumped out of the open window and fell to the wayside. Hoping against hope, I walked up to the engine car. More button prompts - “Accelerate”, “Ring bell” and, yes, “Whistle”.

I hope most of the “care for yourself and you horse” things listed aren’t too intrusive/time consuming. Would make for a boring time waste, especially for those with minimal time each day to actually play.

Well I guess there is one big difference with Rockstar compared to other companies when it comes to micro transactions, whereas most companies pocket the money Rockstar apparently uses it towards things like properly simulating horse testicles.

Game Informer had this to say

quote:

Arthur has needs, too, like eating and sleeping. As you play, Arthur gets hungry and tired over time. If you don’t eat or sleep, you won’t regenerate your health or stamina as quickly. It doesn’t seem to veer into pure simulation territory, but I did eat a snack before a gunfight just in case. I can’t say for certain how it works over longer sessions, but Rockstar is adamant that, like the weapon cleaning, it’s not designed to be intrusive. Instead, it’s a way to remind players that Arthur is a person, and not just a hunk of meat that’s entirely self-sustaining.

Here. It doesn’t sound too taxing, fortunately. Besides, who doesn’t want to pay to get wanked off in the bath?

quote:

A trip to a local inn for a room and bath gave me the option to pay extra for the deluxe wash, with a lady of arriving to reach into the suds and ensure that Arthur was completely clean downstairs.

Yeah, some of us have time to play games but not infinite time, and don't need a horsey tamagochii pet. I'm sure it'll be optional how much time you have to spend doing all the side stuff Rockstar throw in their open world murder simulators. It'll be just another thing people who want to spend time on it can utilize, but 90% of the game will still be riding to place on map and shooting dudes.

Yea, they should go SCUM way and have you manage your macronutrients and vitamins intake.

Regularly going to the bathroom (time depending on your fiber consumption) so you don’t poo poo yourself during the missions is another mechanic they should add.

and for the people worried about the blood and gore, Red Dead Redemption 2 features limb dismemberment and vital organ targeting" "the game’s shotguns allow Arthur Morgan to blow heads, arms, and legs clean off."

Huh, apparently the weapons system is going to be like Max Payne 3, where all your available weapons are displayed on your person and when you switch from a long rifle to a handgun, Arthur holds the rifle in his off-hand rather than magnetizing it to his back. Presumably you can switch up your entire loadout from your saddlebags or something.

Also, dual wielding is in

And I don't think I ever even fast traveled in RDR.
