The Red Dead Online beta has gone live for those that own the Ultimate Edition, and we’ve managed to jump on and capture the first opening mission that sets the scene for Rockstar’s massively multiplayer online western.

While Red Dead Online features six different multiplayer modes, it also includes a variety of story missions for the player, some of which can be played co-op. What’s more, they change depending on the player’s Honor Rating.

You can watch the opening here, the start of the mission that earns you your first Red Dead Online achievement.

Now that’s done with, here’s a guide to playing with friends online. The Red Dead Online beta supports 32 players to begin with.

If you don’t have the Ultimate Edition of the game you can check what time it unlocks for you here.
