Red Dead Online can now be purchased and downloaded as a standalone version. Until mid-February 2021, only five dollars are needed to buy this game.
Rockstar Games is reminding you with a trailer that Red Dead Online is now available as a standalone game in the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Rockstar Games Launcher, Epic Games Store and on Steam. Due to the backward compatibility of the new consoles, the PS5 and Xbox Series X are also supported.
This version of the online western shooter is available until February 15, 2021, at the introductory price of $4.99. After that, around $20 will be required, which sometimes comes close to the price of the full version of Red Dead Redemption 2 depending on the offers. It should also be noted that the discounted price in the PlayStation Store is linked to a PS Plus membership.

Since this is an online game, PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold are required to play. You cannot enjoy the campaign of Red Dead Redemption 2 with this version of Red Dead Online. This must be purchased separately.
