The game’s vast and atmospheric world also provides the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience. America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang has to rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal fissures threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang that raised him. [Rockstar] Expand

    Red Dead Redemption II is easily one of the best-looking games I’ve seen, with an astonishing attention to detail. [Impressions]
  2. Sep 20, 2018
    After just 45 minutes of what could be a very long game, I’m quite convinced that this is going to be one of the best games of the year. Perhaps I should play another hundred hours or so before I decide that for sure, but Rockstar has certainly shown that it knows how to level up the open world game so that it combines both freedom of discovery and a tightly woven narrative within believable, living world where we can all lose ourselves. [Impressions]

    We've only had the briefest of glimpses at the laundry list of genuine additions, but the level of depth that they suggest is certainly an incredibly enticing prospect, and we can't wait to experiment with them further. [90-minute impressions]

    Even after this brief glimpse, I'm ready to kiss goodbye to the end of 2018.

    Saint Denis impressed me the most. It's on the brink of the modern world that Red Dead Redemption 2 might tell its most interesting stories. [3 Hour Impressions]
  6. Sep 20, 2018
    Systems are polished to a level that feels frankly unmatchable by most of Rockstar’s peers. It’s already astonishing. [1st 2 hours impressions]

    It’s one thing to be able to wave at strangers as you cross paths on a trail or in a saloon; it’s quite another for every inhabitant of this turn-of-the-century American setting to have lives of their own and remember their experiences with you. [Impressions]
