It would be fair to say that the launch of Rockstar’s long-anticipated wester sequel Red Dead Redemption 2 was a big deal. The game sold like gangbusters upon release, become one of the biggest entertainment launches in history. Millions of players soaked in the wild west atmosphere in the game’s enormous single-player campaign. Red Dead Redemption 2 was designed to have a multiplayer component, but it was not ready for prime time when the game launched in October. Today, the beta period for Red Dead Redemption 2 Online begins for owners of the Ultimate Edition of the game.
