You can now play Red Dead Redemption 2 online with friends. But you have to fulfill a few conditions. Which, you will learn here.
Red Dead Online is live now and the best part is playing online games with friends. But you have to do some things with random matchmaking before you can.
You have to do that before you can play with friends:
- Play the first story mission in which you steal horses
- Build your first camp
- From now on you can invite friends.
Invite friends and join other players
To invite friends or join a session:
- Open the free roam menu in free roam mode. That's on the PS4, the left arrow on the D-pad.
- Select "Player". Here you come via the shoulder buttons to Friends, Crew and Recent Players
- Now choose "Friends" and here you can also directly see and select your friends
- You can now choose between "invite" and "join session"
Once you have done that, then you can finally play purposefully with friends.
In the described menu you will also find friends' Abilitiy-Loadout and you can also see their posse details.
