Red Dead Online went live on Tuesday, November 27 and players are already out and about earning achievements in the game.

In the Online mode, players customize their character and start out at the Sisika Penitentary in the eastern part of the map before heading out into the world to complete challenges and interact with other players in a variety of ways.

Staying in character, the streamer tries to talk to other player using the game’s proximity chat, which allows players to talk to one another if they’re close enough.

Without a word in reply, the other player hops on their horse and lassos dasMEHDI before dragging him along behind.
