Red Dead Online the multiplayer mode of the acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 but before playing it you will need to download a patch of about 5GB that prepares the title to the multiplayer component.
In Red Dead Online players can explore the wild west lands alone or in the company of friends, face missions, challenges, create or join a “Gang” – which will include a maximum of seven players – with which to make raid, go to fishing or hunting, visiting towns, fighting enemy gangs, attacking their hiding places and so on.
But Rockstar has decided to follow the fashion of the moment, implementing the inevitable Battle Royale, however, characterized by very silent weapons. The real battle of Red Dead Online will take place in a restricted area, the winner will obviously be the last surviving player on the map and you can use an extremely small set of weapons that will only cover throwing knives and bows.
We report that at the time Red Dead Online was only accessible to the owners of the Ultimate Edition, however, on Xbox One are experiencing some disservices: some users, including us, do not have the ability to access the online sector even if they have the Ultimate edition.
Here are the details of the Red Dead Online rollout:
