'Red Dead Redemption 2' Is Releasing a Standalone Online Version for $5 USD

Two years after its launch, Rockstar Games is finally offering Red Dead Redemption 2‘s online experience as a standalone title — and at a much discounted price from now until February.

For those who only want to play Red Dead Online, the separate title will now offer everything from the five unique Specialist Roles to the co-op based story-based mode A Land of Opportunities and even multiplayer Showdown modes and Free Roam missions, events, and daily challenges. Those who purchase this variation of Red Dead will also receive all content updates in the future.

On top of the announcement, Rockstar Games will also be releasing new content to expand the current role of Bounter Hunters. There’ll be new criminals to track down, additional Prestigious level equipment to earn, and more Legendary Bounties. As an added bonus, you’ll also get double XP for any Bounty Hunter missions you complete this week.

The standalone version of Red Dead Online will launch on December 1, available on the Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store, Rockstar Games Launcher, Epic Games Store and Steam. Those purchasing it before February 15 will also receive a 75 percent discount, costing you just $5 USD.

Elsewhere in gaming, the next-gen version of Rainbow Six Siege will arrive in December.
