Pre-orders for Red Dead Redemption 2 are now live on the game’s official website. Although we don’t know the official release date yet, we do know that it will be in the fall of 2017. Get ready to head back to the Wild West!
Fans of the Red Dead series can now pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2 on the official website. The game doesn’t have a set release date yet. We only know that the game should come out some time in the fall of 2017. So far, there are no known pre-order bonuses, but that might change in the coming months. Fall is a long way away.
RDR 2 is an open-world action-adventure game set in the Wild West. The previous installment was a huge success, both with critics and regular gamers. It won pretty much every industry award you can think of, so the pressure is really on. Rockstar Games have to deliver something truly incredible if they are to surpass what the previous game did. Luckily, they’ve shown they’re capable of doing just that with the GTA series.
The first Red Dead Redemption ended on a tragic, but typically Western note. I won’t give anything away to avoid spoilers. However, let’s just say that a sequel would be unlikely. However, based on a map image leaked on NeoGAF a while ago, RDR 2 will be a prequel, instead. In other words, we might be exploring the past of John Marston, the protagonist of the original RDR.
Rockstar games have been keeping the game under wraps for the most part. Other than the occasional trailer or promo poster, we know next to nothing about the game. Those who pre-order the game now will truly go in blind. That will be a proper test of faith, I guess.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out in the fall 2017 on Xbox one and PlayStation 4.
