Rockstar is formally decoupling Red Dead Online from Red Dead Redemption 2. That indicates you’ll have the ability to purchase the online multiplayer mode as a standalone item on both PC and consoles-- it’s not going free-to-play.
This brand-new standalone variation of Red Dead Online releases on December 1 and will cost $20. For the very first couple of months of accessibility-- from launch till February 15, 2021-- it will be 75% off, offering for simply $5. As an online video game, it needs membership to PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold if you’re using PS4/PS5 or Xbox One/Series X|S, respectively.
Red Dead Online will be offered through the PlayStation Shop, Xbox Shop, Rockstar Games Launcher, Steam, and Legendary Games Shop. It consists of the complete RDO experience, without any distinctions from what you’d manage owning Red Dead Redemption 2, indicating there’s absolutely nothing brand-new to purchase here if you’re an existing gamer. This standalone variation will provide a choice to buy what’s called Red Dead Redemption 2: Story Mode, which includes the single-player project, although a rate was not shared.
RDO will need 123GB of free space to set up. There’s no word on particular improvements if you’re using PS5 or Xbox Series X|S, although those platforms do support the video game through in reverse compatibility.
This is a noteworthy release for Rockstar, considered that GTA Online-- which continues to be an enormous success for the business-- has actually not been readily available independently from Grand Theft Automobile V. There is a standalone variation of GTA Online en route in 2021, however Red Dead will be the very first of Rockstar’s video games to be separated in this fashion.
