In all likeliness, those people might be testers who’re trying out the online mode before it goes live.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is exactly one month old today, and though there are a lot of people who’re still not even close to being done with its campaign, given it’s vast nature, a large number of people are probably already looking forward to what’s next. Red Dead Online is slated for its beta launch at the end of the month, and according to the game’s Achievements activity on Xbox One, it seems a select few might already be playing it.
Some Achievements tied to the game’s online component, as Ultragamerz points out, have already been unlocked by 0.01% of all players, while many others are still standing at 0%. Given the nature of the online mode, it’s unlikely that that the masses have somehow gotten access to it, which means that in all likeliness, that 0.01% is referring to testers within Rockstar who’re trying out the mode before it launches in full in the next few days.
Given that we’re very much in the last days of November, it shouldn’t be long now before Rockstar releases some new details on what we can expect from it. Recently, a leaked image hinted at what Red Dead Online’s opening sequence might be. While we wait for its launch, make sure to read our wishlist for the ten things we want to see in Red Dead Online.
