Red Dead Online Beta Progress May Not Transfer To Full Release
Red Dead Redemption 2’s online component, Red Dead Online, has officially entered into early access this week, providing players with even more ways to explore all the Western game has to offer. While players have begun rallying their friends together and checking out the new online features, developer Rockstar Games has revealed that any progress gained during the beta may not carry over to the full release.
The folks over at Rockstar Games recently released a blog post on their website, detailing the new features and systems fans will be able to test out while they explore Red Dead Online. At the end of the blog post, the developer also stated that progress may not carry over to the full release of Red Dead Online:
We hope that all player progress during this early period of the Beta will be able to remain intact long term, however as with many betas for large scale online experiences such as this, there is always the chance that we may need to implement rank or other stat resets in case of issues.”
Stat/level resets during and immediately following a beta does tend to happen, though thankfully Rockstar Games is at least trying their best to ensure that it will happen as little as possible. Here’s the breakdown of the beta schedule for those interested:
- Tuesday, November 27th: All Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition owners. Please note, players who purchased the physical Ultimate Edition must redeem the Ultimate Edition code in the packaging to be eligible.
- Wednesday, November 28th: All players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26th according to our data.
- Thursday, November 29th: All players who played Red Dead Redemption 2 between October 26th to October 29th according to our data.
- Friday, November 30th: All players who own Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
