The Red Dead Online beta has gone live, so here’s a quick look at 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.
