With the Red Dead Redemption 2 release date set in stone, many people are thinking about putting in a pre-order. While some of you might want to pre-order the highly anticipated game ahead of its official release, many others are better off waiting a few more weeks to pre-order.
In late 2016 Rockstar finally confirmed Red Dead Redemption 2, a follow-up to the studio’s critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption.
In the months since the initial announcement, Rockstar’s confirmed a flurry of details. The game will feature an expansive Online mode dubbed Red Dead Online. It’ll come with a timed PS4 exclusives. And it will be released on October 26th for Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4.
Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar Games, says that October 26th release date will stick and there won’t be any further delays.
Like most games, Rockstar’s highly anticipated title is $60 without a deal though you can pay more money for a Special Edition or an Ultimate Edition, both of which come with in-game items.
As we push toward the game’s release date, many people are trying to decide if it’s worth putting in a pre-order ahead of the official launch.
Today we want to share some reasons why you might want to put in a Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-order today and why you might want to wait before putting in an order for a game that should be one of the year’s very best titles.
Pre-Order If You Want to Play ASAP
If you loved the first Red Dead Redemption and you know you'll want to jump into new one as soon as humanly possible, you might want to just get it over with and put in a pre-order right now.
Many of you have been waiting seven plus years for a new Red Dead Redemption to arrive. While Red Dead Redemption 2 won't feature the exact same locations and characters as the first game, it will be set in the same world with tons of missions to complete, places to see, animals to hunt, and so on. It'll also include some familiar faces.
Rockstar's long development cycles are hard to sit through, but the payoff is almost always worth it and there's a very good chance Red Dead Redemption 2 will be worth the long wait.
The game will feature an extensive single-player campaign and it'll also feature a massive online component that will likely mirror Grand Theft Auto 5 Online.
If you think you might want to start ranking up your character and banking cash the second the Red Dead Online beta goes live this fall, think about putting in a pre-order.
If you pre-order a digital copy you should be able to pre-load the game and start playing right at Midnight Eastern on release day.
