Patrick Brown, Staff Writer

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a high flying adventure game that was recently released on Oct. 26.  The game is set in the wild west in the late 1800’s. The setting of the game features several fictional states and does not include real locations.

“ All in all I’ve enjoyed the game,” senior James Gore said. “The open world atmosphere that spans across five states is so big that I never get bored while I was playing.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the sequel to the first Red Redemption as it follows the main character, Arthur Morgan throughout the plot. The game begins as Morgan and his gang are about to rob a train. After the team robs the train, Pinkerton detectives are hired to arrest them and they must evade capture while still having to complete the other heist.

The game was created by Rockstar Studios, which is also the same company that produced the Grand Theft Auto. Red Redemption 2 is available on both Xbox One and Playstation 4. The game is available in all stores and online for $59.99.

“Although I didn’t play the first Red Redemption I really enjoyed the second one,” senior Alex Brennan said. “It’s very similar to GTA and it makes sense since it’s from the same country.

The newly featured side missions allow for the players to interact with various characters in the game. This new edition has received positive feedback.

“The side missions allow you to interact with every character in the game. This makes each experience very unique,” Brennan said. “Both boys bought the game on digital download, this is in correlation with statistics that show more and more gamers are buying their games digitally instead of on disc.”
