Red Dead Redemption 2 was released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018. The game generated around $725 million in sales just from its opening weekend.

 

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a Western-themed action-adventure game developed and published by Rockstar Games. It is the prequel to the first Red Dead Redemption game which launched in 2010. The game is set in 1899 and follows the story of an outlaw that goes by the name Arthur Morgan, a member of the Van der Linde gang.

 

Over 17 million copies were shipped in two weeks, and the game has won several awards. Some of the awards Red Dead Redemption 2 received were Game of the Year, Best Game Direction, Best Art Direction, Best Narrative, Best Score/Soundtrack, Best Audio design and Best performance. Furthermore, several critics have complimented the story, characters, open world, and considerable level of detail.

 

Personally I think Red Dead Redemption 2 is a good game because most new games now are based in the future, while Red Dead Redemption 2 is based in the past. It is also an open world game, meaning you can go anywhere you want and do anything you want; you aren’t limited to only doing story based missions.

 

Recently Rockstar came out with Red Dead Online so now you can play Red Dead Redemption 2 with friends as long as you have an internet connection. The only thing I think is bad about Red Dead Redemption 2 is how it is limited to Xbox one and Playstation 4 users; Rockstar should open the game up to people who play games on computers.

 

Red Dead Redemption 2 provides something new and different for video gamers and I believe that is the reason for its success.
