Rockstar Games has revealed a standalone version of Red Dead Online which can be purchased separately from the game’s campaign.
As of December 1, players will be able to purchase Red Dead Online on the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Rockstar Games Launcher, Epic Games Store and Steam. The game will cost $4.99 at launch as part of an introductory offer, which is 75% of the game’s RRP. This offer will last until February 15, 2021. Of course, you’ll need PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold to engage with the game’s multiplayer features.
As well as the last-gen consoles Red Dead Redemption 2 is already available on, Red Dead Online will be playable on next-gen consoles via backwards compatibility and take up 123 GB of hard drive space. The standalone package will also give players the option to upgrade and purchase Red Dead Redemption 2’s story mode at an additional cost.
To coincide with the standalone launch of Red Dead Online, the Bounty Hunter role is being expanded, with an extra 10 ranks added to the role as well as new Legendary Bounties.
