Rockstar Presents Red Dead Online as a Standalone Game
Published November 26, 2020 | 728 views
From the stable of Rock Star games, we are getting Red Dead Online as a Standalone game as from 1st December, 2020. The Standalone game will be released on “PC, PlayStation and Xbox”.
Red Dead Online is an online multiplayer action-adventure game. The game is developed and published by Rockstar Games as the online component of Red Dead Redemption 2
Rootin, Tootin and Lots of Shootin’
Just like the single-player game, Red Dead Online is presented through both first and third-person perspectives. As a result, the player may freely roam in its interactive open world.
The gameplay has elements like shootouts, heists, hunting, horseback riding, interacting with non-player characters and maintaining the character’s honor rating through moral choices and deeds.
The game has a bounty system that governs the response of law enforcement and bounty hunters to crimes committed by players.
What Does the Standalone update mean for players?
The Standalone game allows players to traverse the open world alone or in a posse of up to seven players, with or against whom they can partake in organized activities.
It also means that as from 1st December 2020, you do not need an internet connection to play Red Dead Online. Thus, this makes the title of the game ironic in nature. Furthermore, you don’t need to break the bank to experience Red Dead Online.
Rockstar spiced up the Red Dead Online game by separating it’s solo component and reducing it’s price, at least for the initial month of release.
Where can I get the Red Dead Online game?
The game will be available from the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Rockstar Games Launcher as well as Epic Games Store.
Red Dead Online Standalone will Stream at an introductory offer of $4.99 – which is 75% off the regular price – until February 15, 2021. You will need PlayStation Plus and/or Xbox Live Gold to play.
The possible challenge of Red Dead Online Standalone game
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Red Dead Online will be playable via backward compatibility on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series hardware.
In addition, you will need a lot of space in your hard drive to play Red dead online. This new standalone version will require up to 123GB of disk space and will also include the option to unlock Red Dead Redemption 2: Story Mode (that will be purchased separately).
For the first time, new players who do not already own Red Dead Redemption 2 can experience everything Red Dead Online has to offer. This includes access to all future content updates.
