Rockstar Games made the decision to finally split the Online section of Red Dead Redemption 2, which will be sold as a standalone game from December 1, the company announced.
In this way, Red Dead Online will launch with a tempting price of $ 4.99 dollars, although as of February 15, 2021, it will climb to $ 19.99. Therefore, the game will have an initial discount of 75% and will be available in the Epic Games, Rockstar, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One stores. The console versions will be playable on the new arrivals PS5 and Xbox Series X thanks to backward compatibility.
Red Dead Online will require 123GB of storage , according to Rockstar. In addition, players will have the option to purchase RDR2’s story mode separately, through an update that will unlock all existing content to date, including the Bounty Hunters expansion that will arrive next week.
This news seems to confirm Rockstar’s tendency to split its titles from multiplayer components, as will happen with GTA V Online next year. In addition, it increases the rumors that the next Grand Theft Auto 6 could receive a Free To Play mode.
