By Marty Mulrooney

Red Dead Redemption II

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an open world, Western-themed video game developed and published by Rockstar Games, creators of Grand Theft Auto. Although it is technically the third game in the series (following Red Dead Revolver in 2004 and Red Dead Redemption in 2010), Red Dead Redemption 2 serves as a prequel to the previous game. Set in 1899, it takes place in a fictionalised version of the American West and stars Arthur Morgan – a high-ranking member of the notorious Van der Linde gang – as the game’s anti-hero protagonist. Alongside his fellow gang members, including original Red Dead Redemption star (and fan-favourite) John Marston, Arthur must evade rival gangs and determined Pinkerton agents in an epic adventure that unfolds during the dying days of the Wild West and the dawn of modern civilization.
