When the original Red Dead Redemption released in 2010, it changed open world games and video game narrative in a dramatic way. When we ranked the top 300 games of all time for our 300th issue, we placed it at number eight. Calling it one of the best games of all time is not a hyperbolic statement, and for that reason, excitement for the sequel is through the roof.

The in-depth intricacies of Red Dead Redemption 2's mechanics and story are still mostly mysterious, but we do know a few important things. The game is a prequel, covering the exploits of the infamous Dutch van der Linde gang at the beginning of the end of the West. You play as a character named Arthur Morgan, a senior member and lead enforcer of the gang. John Marston, the protagonist from the original game, is also part of the story. It was his time with the Dutch van der Linde gang that lead to the events of Red Dead Redemption, after all.

This is Rockstar's first dedicated game for the current generation of consoles and as a result, it looks stunning. The new lighting system lends the sunlight an impressive brightness, and the scenes that take place at night offer a stunning contrast with skies full of stars. The characters in the game also have an incredible level of detail in their faces and clothing. You can see every imperfection in the stitching on Morgan's hat.

Horse-riding and hunting, expectedly, return, but we've also learned about a few new mechanics, like a new layer of interaction that allows you to talk to citizens without drawing your weapon to give you more options in every encounter. We've also seen teases and large-scale train robberies and other gang-like activities.
