These 'Red Dead Redemption 2' bundle deals are wild

Red Dead Redemption 2 app hits iOS and Android this week

Rockstar Announces the Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App

The intervening years have seen it release no new titles, but that changes this week with the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Reviews will also naturally only cover the game's single-player portion since Red Dead Online isn't coming until next month. Then I made a video showing off some of the most interesting stuff from those 25 hours, with only the lightest spoilers. You're part of a ragtag criminal family in Red Dead 2, looking to survive amid an increasingly hostile and treacherous American landscape.
