People looking to experience the Red Dead Online beta may want to save time this week. Rockstar has announced a staggered rollout that will give certain people priority access, depending on what version they own and when they last played. The earliest someone can play is November 27, 2018, with general access opening on November 30, 2018.


To make things easier to understand, here is a list going over when people will be able to play Red Dead Online.


  • November 27, 2018: Red Dead Redemption Ultimate Edition owners can begin playing through the online mode.
  • November 28, 2018: People who played Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26, 2018, launch day, can begin going online.

  • November 30, 2018: Everyone who owns Red Dead Redemption 2 can play Red Dead Online.

In Red Dead Online, people create a custom character and play online alone or with friends, exploring areas they have seen in Red Dead Redemption 2. Up to seven people can form a group together and undertake activities.


Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
