Red Dead Redemption 2 is the prequel to the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption which featured the beloved John Marston, an ex-outlaw that grapples with the consequences of his past. This time around, you’ll play a role in that past as you play through the story of fellow Van der Linde gang member, Arthur Morgan.
Just like its predecessor, Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 succeeds in just about every way. It’s western themed world is filled with an immense amount of detail, bringing characters, story, and gameplay that refine and perfect the open world genre blueprint. It masters the art of story-telling through thoughtful exploration and meaningful interaction, achieving what many other blockbuster titles like it have struggled to.
Red Dead Redemption 2’s legacy continues with Red Dead Online, featuring character customization, a multitude of competitive game modes, and cooperative missions based on an honor system.
