Red Dead Redemption 2 will be launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles on October 26th, 2018. The game is now available to preorder and offers a number of bonuses depends on which version you want to order, and I have to say they all look great.
“You play as Arthur Morgan, member of the infamous Van der Linde outlaw gang. Following a bloody robbery in the Western town of Blackwater that left a trail of dead, the gang is chased by the law east into the Grizzly Mountains. The game picks up as the gang fights to survive the elements in brutally cold winter.
Lead by the philosopher-outlaw Dutch van der Linde, this gang of hellraisers is 23 members strong. Doing your part for the gang will raise morale and change the way gang members respond to you. Talk to fellow members for leads on new money-making activities for the gang, or roll up your sleeves and chop some wood or head out to hunt wild game. Alternatively, just pour yourself a cup of joe and listen to some stories. Cough up some of your hard-earned cash for the camp’s donation box to fund future camp upgrades, like fast travel.”
