Firstly, Red Dead Online will be getting continuous additions and updates, even whilst in beta. For people with the Ultimate edition, or who played Red Dead Redemption 2 on 26th October (launch day), you can play right now. By the end of the week, all owners of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be able to jump into the game's map an play the brigand or hero in its Wild West world. After creating and customising their own character-an enjoyable and humorous task in itself-the player is rescued from a police convoy by Jessica LeClerk, who tasks them with tracking down her husband's killer.

KitGuru Says: Have any of you had the chance to try out Red Dead 2's online mode yet?

As mentioned above, the Red Dead 2 Online beta rollout will continue this week, with more players being added each day.

Today, you'll be able to load into the 32 players online mode and posse up with up to six friends.

When Red Dead Redemption 2 launched last month, it was quickly lauded as one of the strongest single-player gaming experiences ever made.

Honor also plays a big part in Red Dead Online, with a player's honor shifting between high and low depending on their decisions, from life and death choices to tending to their horse. It took me all of half an hour after I completed the introductory Red Dead Online missions before a player started killing me continuously. Yet, one thing Rockstar Games may have zero control over is the transfer of beta progress. These options first appear after the same person has killed you four times. The mode is officially live and has been expanding to include more players. You can submit feedback to them via this form on their website, and one of their team should either provide you with assistance or let you know if the problem is being looked into. Naturally, the play area gradually shrinks, like any good BR mode.

Demonstrate your personal speciality 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. Then it's the turn of those who played it between 26 October and 29 October.

One regular glitch appears to be male Red Dead Online characters wearing lipstick despite this not being an option in the character creator.
