Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26, 2018, and is available now for pre-order starting at $59.99. The game world is reportedly massive, with huge 4K assets to boot, which will put some serious pressure on your downloads and HDD storage space. To help you prepare, Rockstar will allow players across Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to begin pre-loading the game this Friday, at 12AM ET.
Update October 18, 2018: Additionally, Rockstar has now dropped the launch trailer (above), giving us another glimpse at the game's vast and complex open world.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is set at the dawn of the industrial age in a fictional reimagining of the Wild West. The game is a prequel to the original Red Dead Redemption, with character Dutch Van der Linde and John Marston both returning from the previous game.
Early previews of the game speak of an open world with unprecedented detail and interactivity, which, like Grand Theft Auto V before it, could redefine the very idea of "open world" once it launches. We'll have to wait and see.
