About Red Dead Redemption II
Red Dead Redemption II for PS4 and XONE is the third installment of the Red Dead series set in the Wild West. The series has been developed by Rockstar San Diego – one of Rockstar Games’ subdivisions. The studio is known for creating such games as Max Payne 3, Bully, Manhunt, as well as series like Midnight Club and Grand Theft Auto. This Western franchise was established in 2004 with the release of Red Dead Revolver; however, it only became extremely popular with the launch of the second installment – Red Dead Redemption. The sandbox game telling the story of one John Marston has been considered by many to be the best Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game and has sold in over 14 million copies.
Red Dead Redemption II is a prequel to the entire series. The action of the game is set before the events featured in both Red Dead Revolver and Red Dead Redemption. The main protagonist of the game is Arthur Morgan – an outlaw working for the gang ran by Dutch Van der Linde. Morgan and his friends travel across the Wild West, ravaging the land like a plague.
