Red Dead Re­demp­tion II

every­thing has a price

Games TM - - CONTENTS -

What con­sti­tutes a com­plete game ex­pe­ri­ence? We ask be­cause there’s been some con­cern over Red Dead Re­demp­tion II and its re­veal of sev­eral spe­cial-edi­tion pack­ages, two of which come with ad­di­tional story mode content: Bank Rob­bery Mis­sion and Gang Han­gout.

When it comes to Rock­star games, we’re pretty rav­en­ous. We want to see and ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery facet of its game worlds be­cause they are of­ten so rich and en­ter­tain­ing, so if the idea of miss­ing out on two story mis­sions be­cause you didn’t want to pay an ad­di­tional £20 for them con­cerns you, we sym­pa­thise.

Rock­star has since clar­i­fied on Twit­ter that the content in ques­tion “are side ac­tiv­i­ties cre­ated specif­i­cally for that edi­tion and are not part of the main story.” So they are not cru­cial parts of the plot that you’ll be miss­ing out on, but by their de­scrip­tion as a gang hide­out as­sault and bank rob­bery, we can’t help but feel we’ll be miss­ing out on some clas­sic Red Dead ac­tion un­less we plump for the Spe­cial or Ul­ti­mate Edi­tions of the game. We would hope that in time these mis­sions will be made avail­able to all, but for the mo­ment it looks like they’ll be locked be­hind a pay­wall. Dis­ap­point­ing, but at least there will be plenty of other things to do in the game.
