Red Dead Online: Standalone Version

Red Dead Online is now available to be purchased as a standalone game for PS4 (PlayStation Store). Xbox One (Microsoft Store) and PC (Rockstar Games Launcher, Epic Games Store, and Steam) at the price of $4.99, which is 75% off the regular price, until February 15, 2021.

Players who own the standalone version of Red Dead Online will have the option to purchase Story Mode at any time.

Red Dead Online: Daily Challenge Reset

  • Daily Challenge streaks are no longer be able to be maintained indefinitely past 28 days. Instead, once a player hits a 28-day Daily Challenge streak, their streak counter will reset, and they will receive a lump cash payment of RDO$100.
  • Any player with a Daily Challenge Streak greater than 28 days prior to December 1st, 2020 will have their streak counter reset and receive a one-time cash payment of RDO$600.
  • The amount of Gold awarded for completing Daily Challenges has been reduced by 50%.

This is a change compared to before, where keeping a streak going for more than 28 days would let you keep the maximum reward multiplier of 2.5x. This, of course, has not been received well by the community, because it means players will receive significantly less gold for completing daily challenges.
