As many games are transitioning to the phase of online-centered experiences in recent years, some titles are isolating its multiplayer version from the equation of the entire full game. For Rockstar Games, the developer has already established that already with GTA Online. While the multiplayer for Grand Theft Auto V is a thriving ecosystem of its own separate from the single player, Rockstar Games is preparing to ship GTA Online separately.

In a financial report from parent company take-Two Interactive, the initiative will be pushed for the next-generation consoles sometime in mid 2021. The offer will be free according to the document uniquely for PlayStation 5 for three months before arriving to other supported platforms. Now, the same song is being played for Red Dead Online.

In a new announcement today, Rockstar Games announces Red Dead Online will be offered as a standalone release. However, the segment that makes up Red Dead Redemption II will only be available for purchase rather than a free client as propped for GTA Online.

Red Dead Online – the vibrant, ever-evolving world where you can take on a range of unique roles and pursuits to blaze your own outlaw trail across the American frontier – will be available to purchase as a standalone game from the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Rockstar Games Launcher, Epic Games Store and Steam on December 1st.

For the first time, new players who do not already own Red Dead Redemption 2 can experience everything Red Dead Online has to offer, including access to all future content updates.

In addition to the first day of Red Dead Online going live for all supported platforms, Rockstar Games presses the client will be available through respected backwards compatibility programs on Xbox Series X|S & PlayStation 5. Also, the standalone will be available for 75 percent off only asking for $4.99 until February 15 next year. It is gathered that the full price is to be $19.99 when the deal ends.

As taxing as Red Dead Redemption II is already for players’ hard drive space, Rockstar Games pressed Red Dead Online will claim 123 GB upon downloading. The single player is also said to be available for purchase as well, meaning that portion of the game is going standalone as well.

Elsewhere recently, Rockstar Games unveiled the next heist for GTA Online. Announcing the Cayo Perico Heist, players can finish the entire job without a crew by their side. You can read the full report by heading here.
