Red Dead Online is coming to Xbox Game Pass

That’s right folks!

From next week, Thursday 13th May, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can download the standalone multiplayer for free to their console and even play on the go on their Android mobile device via the Xbox Cloud app.

Red Dead Redemption 2 itself isn’t available via Game Pass, but if you’re interested in freeing up some hard drive space without losing your Red Dead Online access, then this might come in handy. Either way it’s a freebie, so why not, eh?

This promotion is also sure to draw in a few new players to the community and hopefully boost some lobby headcounts to the presently quieter modes of the game. For the high ranked players groaning at the thought, just think of the target practice!

Red Dead Online (Cloud and Console) – May 13

Join millions of fellow players in Red Dead Online, now packed with years’ worth of new features, gameplay, and additional enhancements. Step into a vibrant, ever-evolving world and experience life across frontier America. Forge your own path as you chase down bounties, battle outlaw gangs and other players; hunt, fish and trade, search for exotic treasures, run Moonshine, and much more to discover in a world of astounding depth and detail.
