After years of waiting, “Red Dead Redemption 2” is now available for the PS4 and Xbox One. Fans of the franchise have waited through delays and teasers, and everyone can finally dive back into the old west to explore the story of Arthur Morgan.
The story follows Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. Following a botched robbery in the western town of Blackwater, the gang are forced to flee and with federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, leaving Arthur to make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.
Told across the deepest and most expansive Rockstar world to date, Red Dead Redemption 2 is Rockstar’s first game built from the ground up for new generation hardware, and seamlessly blends gameplay and storytelling in a completely new way to deliver the experience of living as an outlaw in a notorious gang.
You can find the game right here on Amazon for the PS4 and the Xbox One. There’s still no word yet on a PC or Nintendo Switch port of the game, so for now, console players will be having all the wild west fun.
The game has seen terrific reviews online and streams of the game have been topping the charts on Twitch and YouTube. “Red Dead Redemption 2” will also include access to Red Dead Online. Red Dead Online is the evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways.
Red Dead Online is planned for launch in November 2018, initially as a public beta, with more news to come soon. If you missed the launch trailer for the game, you can watch that video below.
