Rumors about Red Dead Online have leaked ahead of the start of beta testing today. Call of Duty: Black Ops has one (it's very good!) and Battlefield V will launch its own BR mode in March next year.

Red Dead Online Beta Release Date & Time Announced, Access Being Granted in Waves
Well, players have been struggling to connect to servers since its launch earlier today.
It's also likely that the game will receive ongoing support through the addition of new mounts, weapons and clothes, although depending on the structure of activities, it could also mean new missions - although that much in details hasn't been confirmed just yet. So, even if you're not one of the first to be able to play Red Dead Online, you'll at least be able to join the beta in time for the weekend.
And Rockstar Games has hopefully got a plan to upscale their servers based on the surge that is coming.
It will feature character customization unlike the original Red Dead Redemption, where you could only choose pre-made characters from certain factions like the Rebeldes and Walton's Gang.
