Red Dead Redemption 2 is headed to Xbox Game Pass early next month, Microsoft announced Thursday. It comes as a bit of a swap, as Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V will be leaving the program on May 7th, when Red Dead Redemption 2 hits.

Don’t fret, though, GTA V fans. If you’ve been enjoying the game on Game Pass, you can keep the felonies and debauchery going and pick up the game for 20% off while it’s still in the catalog. (And don’t forget about Shark cards, either!)

All the features and modes of Red Dead Redemption 2 will come to the Game Pass version, including additional story content, Photo Mode, and free access to Red Dead Online, where you can be any kind of outlaw you want to be.

If you’re not an Xbox Game Pass member, Microsoft does run upgrade deals on the console from time to time, and it’s usually quite a bargain. (I upgraded for a dollar. Was it worth it? Absolutely.) If you are, and heading out to the wild West with Arthur Morgan has you excited, you can pre-download Red Dead Redemption 2 on the Xbox Game Pass mobile app!

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out for the Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One now.
