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.

Two incredible gaming cosplayers came together to create their own versions of Red Dead Redemption’s Arthur and Sadie Adler — and the photos look like they’re straight out of the game.

The first Red Dead Redemption game came out in 2010 and immediately earned mass appeal, with the 2018 prequel keeping the franchise alive and fans flocking to the servers of the Western adventure game.

As with every popular game, film or TV show, though, fans have all different ways of honoring their favorites, and cosplayers are no exception.

Arthur and Sadie are a favorite of Red Dead fans.

We’ve seen some incredible cosplays in our time, but this one is really something special, with ‘maul_cosplay‘ creating his flawless take on protagonist Arthur Morgan.

That’s not all, though, as he also recruited female cosplayer ‘msskunk’ as Sadie, bringing the fan-favorite couple to life.

“RDR2 is my absolute favorite game and I think Arthur and Sadie should spend more time together,” maul said in his Instagram post. “That’s what the photos are about. Arthur and Sadie enjoying life and spending some quality time together.”

Arthur and Sadie’s relationship was an important one in Red Dead Redemption, and it would have been interesting to see their story developed further, and fans are definitely interested in seeing what occurs between the two — and the cosplay really showcases that. Not to mention, the outfits and setting are literally spot-on, and it’s almost impossible to find any difference between this and the characters themselves.

Both the photos and the cosplays themselves came out looking incredible, as if the characters were lifted right out of the game. Heck, you wouldn’t be laughed at for mistaking this for game art rather than just a photo of two cosplayers paying homage.

This isn’t the first of maul’s cosplays to make waves, with some brilliant looks taken from the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Borderlands 3’s Zane.

If you’re looking for great gaming cosplays, maul and msskunk might be one of the best places to look, since their attention to detail is sublime.
