So the update just adds the multiplayer component. In the menu for Online Mode, it says 'Coming Soon' :sad: If that Eurogamer article is correct it should start up for me tomorrow.

Don't see the point in not letting you change outfits in cinematic mode now

Played online for 2 hours, that consisted of 90 minutes of riding from point A to point B. Stopped playing once I realized they locked fast travel behind rank 65 and attached a microtransaction to it.

The microtransaction are just dumb, they literally made somethings microtransactions only. Just another shiity company. You watch nobody complain about this just because it's R*

They are smart. Hide that online mode for a month so it won't interfere with their great reviews.

Of course I knew it would be a grind/MT fest like GTA Online but it really sounds like its so much worse.

Yeah. Kind of surprised to see fast travel locked out at level 65. I played for 3 hours and nearly got one gold bar already so I think I can buy that option early by just playing the game. You can also fast travel from any town or train station from level 1. Not sure what the point of making the camp one level 65 is.

You can use the Online menu to jump straight in some games. It’s only the Free Roam missions that you need to access from the map.

I’m hoping they might rework the fast travel system a bit overall though.

Mmm might just be sticking for RDR 1 online. Sadly after GTA V I think we all knew it would be similar

I agree about the MTs. Thankfully the SP is fantastic and MP was never a part of my purchase motivation, so MP would just be the cherry. I NEVER by MTs anyway, so I ain't a part of that problem.

It's a shame cause the first games online was great and well balanced

I can only hope they’ll change this to make it better balanced. I don’t like the way the camp system works. It’s constsbtly moving and often ends up the other side of the map from me. That combined with the level 65 fast travel is irksome to say the least.

Just an obvious s***ty way to try and make people pay.

Yeah I think so because it doesn’t make sense in context to have it locked out at a huge level otherwise. That said you can’t actually buy it either because the Store is closed for the beta.

What makes it really odd is that the fast travel system isn’t as bad as i initially thought. You are never more than a two minute ride for a fast travel point. And you can use them with the in game dollars and every one is immeadiately available for use. I was zipping around the map no bother last night. I just find it annoying that you can’t travel to your camp. But honestly what I find WAY more annoying is that your camp randomly moves every half hour or so. Quite often it’s ended up the complete other side of the map.
This is a Beta so I’m hoping they’ll fix some of these problems. I might go and check feedback forum and see what the general consensus is.

I used fast travel last night for $3 to get to a mission that paid out $2.50

Online is pretty trash

The fast travel is terrible. It costs like 2 to 5 dollars each time but the amount of money you get for completing stuff isn't much
more. So, you basically just do all this stuff to fund fast traveling. It's dumb.

It isn't great that is for sure. It isn't very rewarding at all. The world feels empty and lifeless.There doesn't seem to be too much interesting things to do. The story stuff thus far just seem like fetch quests.

Are Gang Hideouts even in yet?

Gang hideouts are in it. I did a few of them. Not sure they work properly though. One gave me a reward and one didn’t.
