If you find yourself loving the online portion of Red Dead Redemption 2 and want to keep playing more, PlayStation is also offering a deal on PS Plus memberships for Red Dead Redemption 2 players. PlayStation is offering 12 months of PS Plus for $47.99 (normally $60) and PS Plus for 3 months for $20.99 (normally $24.99). The deal is only available for purchase within Red Dead Redemption 2 so you cannot cash in on the deal if you don’t own the game. Additionally, subscribers will get 10 gold bars per month during their subscription if they subscribe to PS Plus through the special deal.
