Red Dead Online doesn't get nearly as much love or attention from fans as Grand Theft Auto Online, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth your time. Exploring the gorgeous open world alone or with friends is an absolute blast, and while the multiplayer mode never quite matches the heights of Red Dead Redemption II, it's a ton of fun for anyone looking to further scratch that cowboy itch.
The good news for anyone tempted, is that Microsoft has just announced that Red Dead Online will be making its way to Xbox Game Pass. The online Western will be coming to the popular subscription service alongside a handful of other hit titles, including Dragon Quest Builders 2 and the excellent Psychonauts. There's no set release date for these games yet, other than the assurance that they're coming soon.

To be very clear, it looks like it's just Red Dead Online that's coming to Xbox Game Pass. That means the single-player component of Red Dead Redemption II won't be available via the service. At the time of writing, GTA V is currently back on Game Pass, and I can't imagine there's a world in which Rockstar would allow its two biggest single-player games to exist on a subscription-based service at the same time.
What's especially exciting about Red Dead Online coming to Xbox Game Pass, of course, is that it'll be available on mobile devices. Anyone with a Game Pass subscription and an Android phone will be able to stream the game from their device as soon it hits the service. GTA V is currently playable on mobile in the same way, and the novelty still hasn't quite worn off.
I should stress for those of you who don't know that at the time of writing, xCloud is still only available on Android devices, though testing for iOS devices is currently underway. You'll also need the slightly more expensive Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription if you want to stream games on your mobile, and a controller clip is absolutely recommended if you want to get the most out of the experience.
