From December 1, Rockstar Games will offer the online portion of Red Dead Redemption 2 (Red Dead Online) as a standalone game.
Rockstar Games is going to pull Red Dead Online away from Red Dead Redemption 2, they announce that in one blog post. Starting December 1, the online portion of the game will be available for purchase through the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Rockstar Games Launcher, Epic Games Store and Steam. So you no longer have to buy the full game if you only want to experience the online part. The game is also playable on the next consoles as it is backwards compatible.
Rockstar is borrowing from their concept Call of Duty: Warzone. The game will also include the story mode. You can then unlock that mode for a fee. However, this also means that the size of the installation will be staggeringly high, namely 123 GB. For reference, Warzone requires 175GB of disk space.
If you are interested in Red Dead Online, it is wise to buy the game as soon as possible. The introductory price is only $ 4.99, which is a 75% discount from the $ 20 the game will cost from February 15, 2021.
In 2021, Rockstar will also release a standalone version of GTA Online for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The game will be free on PlayStation 5 for the first three months.
It is immediately noticeable that this is again an installation of more than 100GB. Certainly with a console such as the Xbox Series S (where you only have 360 GB available) that already takes a huge bite out of your storage space, especially if you also want to play Warzone, for example. Hopefully we can draw on the functionality of the new Xbox and PlayStation to choose which part of a game to install so that the size can be somewhat limited.
Furthermore, the price also seems to be a bit skewed. 5 euros for Red Dead Online is of course very attractive, but 20 euros is quite a lot. Anyone who follows the deals knows that Red Dead Redemption 2 is often for sale for less than 20 euros.
