Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally out and everyone can get their hands on it.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the sequel to the 2010 game Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar Games. Fans of the original game have waited 8 years for this sequel and when the sequel was announced, they were overly hyped.

The game sequel came out Friday, October 26, 2018 and it’s doing really well so far. IGN gave this game a 10/10, which on their scale, means it’s a masterpiece. This isn’t anything too surprising. Rockstar Games is known for their popular single player games, like the Grand Theft Auto series. The sequel offers a bunch of bonuses, better graphics, and a few new characters.

The game takes place in the Old West and you play as outlaws on the run. It is a prequel to the first game. The game’s graphics looks incredible. It’s like you’re watching a movie. But that’s the new normal set by more modern, popular games such as Fortnite and of course, Grand Theft Auto. Other than single player, the game offers an online mode as well.

The game seems really fun to play and if its anything like the first Red Dead Redemption game, I would definitely recommend for people to play it.
