Red Dead Redemption 2 is a gaming masterpiece. There's no getting away from that fact.
However, when Red Dead Online was released in beta form a few weeks later after the initial launch of the game itself, the overall consensus was that it wasn't as good as it perhaps could have been, much like GTA Online when it originally came out. As the months went by though, things would start to get better.
With RDR2 Online leaving beta a number of weeks ago, it became clear that Rockstar had some interesting ideas for their online players further down the line. One update set to arrive in the summer will see players have the opportunity to start one of three jobs - a bounty hunter, a collector, or a trader. Even though this update does seem like it will create some interesting moments for players, it's still not enough to make Red Dead Online as great as it could be.
It's been quite a slow start for Red Dead Online but, as was the case with the aforementioned GTA Online, it has all the potential to become one of the best online modes out there if we give it the time to do so. Let's just hope we get features we'd actually want to see as opposed to meaningless additions.
