Rockstar Games is most famous for their virtual cityscapes of the Grand Theft Auto series, but the eight-year project that is the Red Dead Redemption sequel is their biggest release yet.
The 18-rated game was released on October 26th 2018 and sold over 17 million copies in two weeks, generating a whopping £725 million sales. With its real life like graphics, storyline and characters, Red Dead Redemption 2 is voted the second-best game of 2018 by The Game Awards.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has become the most anticipated game of 2018. It is set in a vast, staggeringly detailed open world environment, with western themed action. It is played from either a third- or first-person perspective.
The game is based in America in 1899 – the end of the wild west era has begun. Law-men are hunting down the last remaining outlaw gangs.
The player takes on the role of Arthur Morgan, an outlaw and a member of the Van der Linde gang. Your gang is made up of 15 other members who are fighting to stay alive.
As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.
