Red Dead Redemption II
Publisher Rockstar Games developer Rockstar Studios release 2018 format Xbox One How do you follow the best Old West open-world game ever? Why, you simply DeLorean proceedings back a few years and focus in on the events that lead to John Marston’s melancholic cowboy smash. Placing you in the spurs of John’s old running buddy Arthur Morgan, this hugely ambitious prequel again focuses on the dying days of the Wild West. With the Van Der Linde gang struggling to stay relevant in a world ruled by law, it sets the stage for over 100 riveting story missions, spanning train robberies, daring bank heists and tense grizzly hunts. Not only is RDRII a peerless knockout, its huge map is the most detailed in sandbox history.
