Red Dead Online released this week, providing Red Dead Redemption 2 fans with a reason to return to the Wild West. The mode, which is surprisingly story-heavy, sees you create a character and get to work in the critically acclaimed title’s enormous open world. You can form posses, complete missions, or compete against friends and strangers alike.

But what are your thoughts on the multiplayer offering – even in this early beta phase? Has your progress been kiboshed by bugs? Are you enjoying the online action, or do you find RDR2’s often unwieldy gameplay to be a poor fit for multiplayer? Fire off in the comments section below, and be sure to share your thoughts in our survey.
