The vast open-world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to welcome hoards of online player ‘posses’ this week with the incremental release of the Red Dead Online Beta.
Rockstar Games gave more details Monday to its upcoming Red Dead Online experience, including the much-anticipated info on its player count per session.
Red Dead Online will feature ‘posses’ of up to eight players with 32 people inhabiting a single game session. This is about the same shape of Rockstar’s other brand name online playground, GTA Online, which hosts up to 30 players at one time with 2 additional spots for spectators.
The announcement of its eight-member posses gives a lot of leeway in terms of coop integration and rival gang action. Counting up the potential players, four full posses will be able to sling bullets at each other in each server.
From Rockstar’s announcement, it seems that the posses in Red Dead Online will feature a free-flowing form of recruitment in terms of how players will be able to form or join a posse. Additionally, it seems that these posses will have their own camps to call home.
Along with the player count, Rockstar revealed an incremental release format for the western online shooter.
There will be stages to Red Dead Online Beta’s accessibility with everyone being able to saddle up by Friday, November 30th.
