Allegations of poor working conditions at Rockstar are not new. When Red Dead Redemption came out in 2010 it was a breath of fresh air that everybody wasn't aware they needed.
All in all, it's a pretty safe and standard launch trailer as we near the game's release, but it still does a great job of getting you excited. Grand Theft Auto V has been huge for Rockstar in recent years, (it's still a regular in the Top 10 charts), but the Red Dead games have that special kind of magic that no other game can match.
Red Dead Redemption 2: Special Edition for both PS4 and Xbox One includes a printed map of the game world (we do love a nice map in Rockstar's games), along with a stagecoach's worth of extra content for the single player mode. We also get a look at the forces of law and order, who are also gunning for Dutch, and mother nature, in the form of a big, angry grizzly bear.
Red Dead Redemption II will be available on PS4 and Xbox One from Friday 26 October.
After a robbery goes wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. "As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him".
No matter whether or not one gets the a physical or digital copy of Red Dead Redemption 2, the fact of the matter is that the game is going to take up a sizable amount of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hard drives. Thoughts on what you've seen so far?
