Rockstar Games: Today we’re excited to announce Red Dead Online, a new online connected experience set against the backdrop of Red Dead Redemption 2's enormous open world.
Seems like they really put a big focus on singleplayer this time around if the online will only be in beta when it comes out in November, this is looking more and more promising.
Orr theyre gonna go the fortnite route and keep it in beta so they can update it regularly.
Warframe has been in like perpetual beta, and many free to play games do the same. With constant updates (which cause bugs), it's easier than having someone complain about releasing a buggy product when the tag says beta.
Wait, didn't they release GTA V online after release of the singleplayer? Like almost a month or two later? It didn't help with additional singleplayer content.
To be fair though, GTA 5 had tons of Singleplayer content to start with.
That's exactly what they did. And I remember people complaining about the Online which is actually free considering that the game was announced without it and launched without it. (Note: After announcement of GTAV, the Online portion was announced. Since I (and many people) already preordered it (because Rockstar) online was a freebie.)
Or they're releasing the single player and after reviews are done they'll slide out the MP with microtransactions riddled in it.
they literally did the same exact thing for gta 5 this is nothing new for rockstar its the same exact thing they did for gta
They did this with GTA V. They release them separate and brand them as different games so the online doesn't affect the reviews.
GTA Online launched as a beta like a month after the game released I think. We all know how that turned out. No single player DLC but tons of MT crap for the online mode.
Release more details about the single player aspect of the game. Where is trailer 2?
Why? RDR had great multiplayer.
Agreed, red dead redemption 1 had a much better multiplayer then gta 5, much more relaxed, cozy and fun
The first RDR online was great for a short while as much as found the world bland (which is understandable being the time period it's set in) but I loved GTA4s multiplayer which was very much like RDRs. After the way GTAO was handled I'm very sceptical. I missed the simplicity of the old Rockstar Multiplayer games. Free roam then TDM, CTB etc. It was just streamlined. No MTs, no P2W just work your rank up. And don't forget the absolute terrible load times on GTAO. Find a game, loading, enter lobby waiting to fill, fills lobby, loading, place bets, waits for people to place bets, loads game.... its just way to much much time to get anything done online IMO
Yes, but if they turned it into GTA, then "had great multiplayer" would be the operative term.
Red dead was one of my favorite online games. I prestiged all 4 times (legitimately unlike most) and got a bunch of gold guns. Could outgun any high power pistol with my schofield! Always rode the albino buffalo which wasnt the best mount but it was my favorite. Anyone that played it knows both versions got hacked beyond repair :/ i would probably still be playing it some if it hadnt. The simple, level based progression im sure will be replaced by microtransaction fueled crap. But i’ll hold out hope ♥️...
suddenly this games looks interesting. i mean, minus the still ultraboring setting.
What are you talking about? If you're not interesting in the setting, just play GTA Online.
That's funny. I find this setting more interesting. I find the GTA type settings boring. Because we live in those settings! Really nothing new you see. But none of us live during RDR 2 times
WTF I bet you listen to mumble rap and think 2pac is boring.
TAWK TO THIS NINJA!!!!!
you beat me to it... Haaha!! These young cats be having me dying.
Here we go again.
So glad theyre trying with a delay+ a bets. GtaV online was broken even though they delayed it from launch.
Boy, I can't WAIT for them to start to ignore the main game for this!
I guess we won't be getting story DLC again
So? Why does every game NEED single player DLC? I'd much rather a full experience out of the box.
@ Phantom: I couldn’t agree more!
Whilst I agree with you a single player will always eventually end and sometimes leaves you wanting more. Single player DLC can remedy that.
GTA 4 had a full experience out of the box and two excellent story expansions. RDR had Undead Nighmare which was also great.
I'm not talking about story DLC in general, Rockstar have mostly released decent story DLC (on top of full experience vanilla game) so far with their games so that leaves people wanting their games to have story DLC, as you can see on my post's agree vote.
That’s good DLC: when the games don’t need it but the devs make them for the fans and the game. Undead Nigtmare and GtA 4 DLCs were great
God of War doesn't have a dlc but since it's a PlayStation exclusive, people just say it's a complete single player experience, it doesn't need anything else (although absolutely true but shows the hypocrisy)
I dont think that is a fair comparison. GoW isnt continuing development on GoW. The complaint here is that they will still develop content for the game but it will be suited to the online side rather than the single player side. I am no fan of Sony or R* for that matter and prefer my games multiplayer, but there is a difference when a studio releases a game and moves on or releases a game and then only focuses on MP. What I am hoping for is that the content they add to the MP will still be as enjoyable had they added it to the SP game itself. Then it benefits everyone.
@Gh05t i agree that it's bit unfair but people should atleast let the game release and if the single player is not upto the mark then say whatever they want.
Rockstar games were mostly also a complete single player experience, I just said that previous post because they have history releasing decent story DLCs that adds to the base game so me and many people kinda expected that from GTA V .. which we never get, and it seems like it'll also be the case for RDR2
GoW is a complete game and does not need DLC. It would without a doubt add more content which is not a bad thing, but the devs said they won’t release DLC for it. It is not a case of whether It needs it or not, but a case of whether devs want to do it. So what does being a PS exclusive have to do with anything? R* always released DLC content post launch like The Ballad of Gay tony, Lost and damned, Undead nightmare... but like OP says we won’t get anything just like they did with GtA v
I believe the majority want it . .but we won't get it because while it makes money it doesn't make them infinite money like online services . .ohhh you just gave me an idea of what they'll do . . they know we wanted sp dlc . .they're going to chop a piece of the game out(without us knowing of course) and later on market it as a new experience that way it won't cost them and we'll be satisfied not knowing it was initially apart of the game and already developed . . that's the only way I see us getting sp dlc anymore . . why cast voice actors and pay out of pocket when you can reskin cars,boats,horses, and charge real money for reskins over and over and not pay anything . . .this is the mindset of greed it doesn't care about customers it just cares about it's pockets and even though it could make money and still satisfy customers it doesn't care about satisfying customers.
Gotta sell those sharkcards somehow
Gotta say, I didn't see this coming...
Since there will be online components I can deduce two things from this(based on GTA v experience), first that there might not be any single player story dlcs, and second that pc version is inevitable, take two won't miss the extra money to be made .
That IGN interview was terrible, didn't really give anything away and nothing more than a thinly veiled advert. Where is the important info, like whether progress carries over into the final product.
Mark my words, they're going to release the single player and take in the good reviews. Then after that they'll release the MP that is filled with microtransactions in order to not affect the score.
Soooo, the single player alone will be enough to Garner good reviews? And then adding an entirely optional mode would... lower the scores?
Yep because any other game is reviewed based on the complete package (SP & MP). They're withholding it to release later and you're kidding yourself if you don't think it's strategic.
If you never played RDR Online the first time and you're thinking this is going to be identical to GTA Online, don't even comment about it. I played the original RDR Online and it was so much better than GTA Online. Here's hoping this one will be better than the first one.
I’m not sure why we are pretending to be butt hurt about this. It was expected at this point. GTA V made billions, it’ll be dumb to not implement an online component, specially if the 1st game had it. Also, just because some of us didn’t enjoy GTA online, millions of other people did. It’s ok to deny millions of people fun, and the opportunity to make billions? Let’s stop pretending this Red dead online is a bad thing.
See this is the wrong type of thinking lmao no one wants online to not exist they just want singleplayer story content to thrive . .your argument makes it seem like people are saying have no online at all when really their saying can we have sp story dlc content along with that online content we know will come . . .if you make arguments that point this out you'll be a-okay
I’m not making arguments, and if I was I do not need your approval. I don’t care to be a-okay with you. The game comes with story driven content and most likely no story driven dlc will ever come. Not just to this game, but to any Rockstar game most likely. There’s just too much money. I’m being a realists.
You come off as super emotional with your response, I should have figured when someone starts off their sentence with "I'M not sure why WE are pretending" because the way you feel makes up the entire demographic how very self-righteous of you, you then reply to me saying your being a realist . . so you believe all of us are just pretending to be outraged you included? your argument makes no sense but this is what happens when you post using emotion you trap yourself and come out looking goofy, again you do it at the end of your sentence with "LET'S stop pretending this red dead online is a bad thing" who are you why do you keep including all of us with YOUR opinion, stop that it isn't being a realist it's being overly emotional. Relax do another post to me and take out the generalizations and overly emotional tone use only the facts and than we can have an adult conversation, I think WE would like that greatly, and We should stop pretending WE don't care about the issue of online. I'm just saying it's silly to claim a realist perspective when you make sweeping generalizations based on your biased opinions. LET'S just agree I'M right okay, WE all know it to be true.
I'm not sure what tone you are using in your head when you read things, or where you are looking for an argument. You keep bringing up that word, but I am not arguing for a cause or am being super emotional. If anything there are no emotions since I do not care to be A-Okay with you, or not-a okay. I'm neutral to you.
Geesh, where are all the people that complain all single player DLC is just main game content locked behind a paywall?
ugh... I only hope that this is something like the last game's MP, and not whatever monstrosity they've turned their current MP into.
I want an outlaw or marshal theme. If im an outlaw im living that life in game with players being marshals. If im a marshal im hunting outlaws. alot of possibilities with this.
Wonder what kind of microtransactions they will put in the game. You know everybody loves the shark cards for GTAV so expect them to double up on RDR2.
I just hope with all that extra income we get some single player story content after the initial game ends
It launches in beta to those who bought the game? So GTA5 all over again. Please no online achievements this time. That thing was still broken after I beat it.
wonder what the new shark cards are gonna be? bags of gold? :( shame this will ruin all potential for SP dlc ... could you imagine never having undead nightmare because rockstar could make easy money off whales and normies paying for crap online? :/
Hopefully the fix the random dropping or being kicked from a session that GTA is known for
