Red Dead Online goes solo for $5

Starting on December 1, Red Dead Online, the popular online multiplayer mode of 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is spinning off to a standalone game for $4.99, Rockstar Games announced. The game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (Steam, Epic, Microsoft, Rockstar Launcher), and backward compatible on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The $4.99 price is good until February 15, 2021.

Players who already own Red Dead Redemption 2, don’t need to worry, you already own the game. This is for players who don’t own Red Dead Redemption 2 but want to try out Red Dead Online. There will be an upgrade option for Red Dead Redemption 2: Story Mode that will be sold separately.

In Red Dead Online, you’re able to create your own character and follow the path of five different specialist roles – bounty hunter, trader, collector, moonshiner, and naturalist. There’s a number of story-based missions for two to four players plus Showdown modes, competitive PvP modes where players participate in classic western gunfights and attempt to capture territory or supplies. There are also a number of free roam events and daily challenges all around the universe of the game.

By the way, Rockstar warns that Red Dead Online alone will require up to 123GB of storage disk space.
