Rockstar Games have teased Red Dead Online as an ‘evolution’ of multiplayer and classic Red Dead Redemption gameplay, leaving many fans chomping at the bit to get their hands on it.

Fans are still waiting to take on the world of RDR2 in online multiplayer.

“The launch of the Red Dead Online Beta is the first step in what will be a continually expanding and dynamic world, and the beta period will allow us to deal with the inevitable turbulence of launching any online experience of this size and scale,” the developers stated in their announcement.

Some players were beginning to get nervous that the beta had been delayed due to a lack of information, so the announcement from Rockstar is sure to be a welcome one/

Cyber Monday on November 26 marks 31 days since Red Dead Redemption 2’s worldwide launch, so it is somewhat fitting that Rockstar chose to release the information on this date.

The Red Dead Online Beta was first announced by Rockstar on September 19.

Fans will want the best experience possible despite the word ‘beta’ being attached, as many players consider it to be the full launch regardless.

Rockstar knows that the future salience and relevancy of Red Dead for the next five plus years relies on Red Dead Online living up to expectations, and those expectations are very high indeed.

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.
