Red Dead Online Finally Announced, Public Beta In November

Red Dead Redemption II's online has always been somewhat of a question mark, with fans filling in the empty void with what they think Rockstar can and should add to the new game's multiplayer experience, but the developer has finally given a scant few details toward what Red Dead Redemption II's multiplayer will look like.

"Red Dead Online is an evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways," Rockstar said in a blog post. "Using the gameplay of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption II as a foundation, Red Dead Online will be ready to be explored alone or with friends, and will also feature constant updates and adjustments to grow and evolve this experience for all players."

The public beta for Red Dead Online will launch in November of this year, a few weeks after the game's release, and is "free to anyone with a copy of Red Dead Redemption II on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One." It is unclear if this means the online portion will also be available separately as a standalone purchasable item, but it is free to everyone who owns the game outright.

Japanese magazine V-Jump has confirmed that Android 17 is set to release in the next Dragon Ball Fighterz DLC as a stand-alone fighter.

The DLC will be released late September for $4.99 (or as part of the FighteZ season pass) and coincides with an update bringing a new Space Arena stage for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and, though not mentioned in the original article, probably PC. Switch users will have to wait for a later date.

Korean Ratings Board Lists PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds For PS4

The Korean Ratings Board has posted a listing for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for PS4, a title which is currently only on Xbox One, PC, and mobile.

At E3 2017, Microsoft announced that it was publishing the title for Xbox One, and afterwards the company was careful to point out that the game was a "console launch exclusive." 

Since then PUBG Corp CEO Chang Han Kim said that the goal is to have the game on every system and that the choice to go with Xbox One at the time was due to the fact that Microsoft has an early access period while Sony does not.
