Developed by the creators of Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2 tells the epic tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age. Set in America, the year is 1899 and the end of the Wild West era is approaching. Lawmen have begun to hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs as Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee after a bank robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater.

As federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation seek to hunt them down, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. However, deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, and Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles on October 26th, 2018, with “select content” available first to players on Sony’s machine. This exclusive content has yet to be detailed by Rockstar Games, but Sony could potentially share more details on it at E3 2018 in Los Angeles this June.
