Rockstar has just confirmed the surprising news. Red Dead Online will be released in December as a standalone production. Players do not need to purchase Red Dead Redemption 2 to play the online mode.
Rockstar apparently wants to focus on expanding Red Dead Online, but the developers don’t want to force players to buy Red Dead Redemption 2. From December 1, a standalone production will appear in digital stores, which will not be linked to the campaign:
“For the first time, new players who do not yet own Red Dead Redemption 2 can experience everything Red Dead Online has to offer, including access to all future updates”
Developers confirm that in the standalone Red Dead Online we get access to all known modes, we can freely create characters, spin them through the game world or just participate in subsequent challenges – those interested will check out familiar roles.
Red Dead Online is available on the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Rockstar Games Launcher, Epic Games Store, and Steam for $ 4.99 – 75% discount compared to the normal price. The promotion is available until February 15, 2021.
However, it should be noted that Red Dead Online requires a whopping 123GB of disk space as players can unlock Red Dead Redemption 2. The creators have also confirmed that the role of the Bounty Hunter will be expanded from next week, as there will be many new criminals to catch in the world of positions. .
It’s worth recalling that Red Dead Online recently registered record interest, and a rumor has surfaced about the full release of two parts of the series, but it would be fake.
