Let's Play Red Dead Redemption 2

Let's Play Red Dead Redemption 2

You're part of a ragtag criminal family in Red Dead 2, looking to survive amid an increasingly hostile and treacherous American landscape.

It's all about Red Dead Redemption 2 today - sorry if you don't care! - and so we're going to strike while the iron is hot and get streaming some of the game.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will probably be taking up a ton of your time, with a massive open world to explore and plenty of people to meet out on the American frontier.

The base Xbox One doesn't fare so well against Sony's PlayStation 4, though.

Rockstar has revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be receiving an official companion app that will be launching alongside the game on iOS and Android on October 26, 2018.

Spoiler - it apparently looks and plays best on Xbox One X. Instead this is a powerhouse of a video game, one of the finest, built by people at the top of their game and under intense pressure, lest we forget. Both the PS4 and Xbox One S versions of the game seem to use lower resolution textures than their 4K-targeted counterparts. The game is as good as you have always hoped it would be. Digital Foundry discovered that Red Dead actually runs slightly better on the Xbox One family of consoles - presumably due to a higher clock speed on the CPU.

And come November, PS4 players will get 30 days early access to the Arabian horse featuring a custom Alligator skin saddle, and the High Roller double-action revolver.
