As has been the case for most days this week, the “Red Dead Redemption 2” multiplayer beta rolled out to more players on Thursday morning. Developer Rockstar Games outlined the release schedule in a press release earlier this week.

The unfinished beta for “Red Dead Online” is now available to anyone who owns “Red Dead Redemption” and played it on the weekend it launched. That means anyone who booted up the game between Oct. 26 and 29 can now jump into a version of its wild west open world that will be populated by other players.

This is a follow-up from Wednesday, when Rockstar allowed people who played the game on launch day to hop in. “Red Dead Online” figures to be a cowboy-themed successor to the popular “Grand Theft Auto Online,” with character customization as well as competitive and cooperative missions to complete.
