Any release by Rockstar Games is cause for celebration in the gaming community, but Red Dead Redemption II (RDRII) deserves a party fit for a king. Players expect the developers to come through like they always do, and it’s a safe assumption that they will.
Ever since the release of the second Red Dead Redemption back in 2010, audiences across the world are hooked. That game not only featured impressive graphics but an intricate storyline with an open-world concept and plenty of Wild West-style action. Shootouts, gambling, bounty hunting and cattle herding all played a part of the daily special. But eight years have passed since that release date. What gives?
After waiting for what seems like a long time to play RDRII, the developers are still vague about when the game is set to release, and there is much confusion surrounding the actual date — we had several false alarms throughout 2017. However, Rockstar finally gave us a
concrete date: October 26, 2018. And as that long-awaited day dawns, we do know you can play the new release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. But it could also be a matter of time until a version of the game releases for other consoles.
So, what can we expect from the game? The storyline takes place before the second installment in the Red Dead series. That means the plot centers on the magical time in between Red Dead Revolver and Red Dead Redemption I in the year 1899.
The protagonist, Arthur Morgan, must flee with the rest of his gang after a failed robbery attempt, and if you’re going to hop aboard the western train with the rest of the die-hards, you need to get him out of many tricky situations to survive. As before, the game revolves around your choices as Arthur, which determines how you fare out and what missions you need to complete to move forward.
Act honorably or like a villain. The choice is yours. That''s nothing new, but there are new aspects to consider. The immersion is much stronger with RDRII. You need to take better care of weaponry and need to choose the right ones for the task at hand.
You can interact with NPCs in new ways, some of them not too pleasant (for the NPC) and take care of your character as well. Hair, clothes and food are no longer integrated automatically, so you must choose appropriate options for the weather and your goals. Hunting and fishing bring on a whole new level of pain as well. You must track down the wounded game, skin them and choose the appropriate arms.
While the game isn’t wildly different from the first game, it provides refreshingly new scenery and a much more immersive and real experience that most every fan can get behind.

Milestone and Feld Entertainment, Inc. announced today that Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 2 is coming to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC next February.
Live like a real champion with Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 2. Success is not just about winning: train hard, meet fans, find new sponsors and contracts, this is the winning formula to become the greatest rider.
In this new release, globally available on Feb. 8, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC/STEAM and Nintendo Switch, players will step into the boots of an official Supercross Champion and experience the exciting life of a professional athlete in the most competitive and highest profile off-road motorcycle racing championship in the world.
The new edition puts players at the center of the game with a renewed career mode, enhanced track editor, additional training compounds and improved playability:
A new “career” mode. To become a real professional racer, being fast on the track is not enough, you must increase your fame and conquer fans’ hearts to attract the biggest sponsors, while managing media relations and rivalries with other racers. New features include an agenda full of events and activities to improve your racing skills on four new tracks. The life of a real Supercross Champion isn’t just at the races!
Your face, your style, your track. Every rider has their own style, both on and off the track. That’s why customization reaches a new level in Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 2. Players will be able to make their racer unique, thanks to more than 3,000 customizable items, from physical appearance to the long list of accessories to wear during races. On the track, there’s more than 300 customizable mechanical parts to always find the right feeling with the bike. The highly-appreciated Track Editor returns, enhanced with a lot of new features for players to create their own track to challenge and share online with the community.
Challenge the top athletes from the 2018 season. There are more than 80 official racers from the 2018 season with some of the most famous such as reigning 450SX Class champion, Jason Anderson, and Marvin Musquin and, for the first time making his appearance in the videogame, Eli Tomac; all of the riders have been accurately reproduced, thanks to a renewed face scanning technology. The 17 tracks available at launch, including the new NRG and Raymond James stadiums, fully recreate the innovative track designs and incredible atmosphere of a Supercross race, including its renowned fireworks and TV-styled replay cameras set inside the most recognizable and prestigious stadiums in America.
A new gameplay experience. The development team worked hard to deliver a more realistic and accessible gameplay experience. Thanks to the new Advanced Inertial Response and Real Terrain Collision technologies, bike control is now more accurate and realistic, both on track and in the aerial phase. Moreover, the new Dynamic Flow Aid helps player to always find the ideal trajectory to jump and land.
In the video games industry, it seems that although the most recognized brands such as Nintendo and PlayStation steal the attention of the world’s gamers with their products, Xbox becomes a serious challenger with a console that offers several interesting services: we’re talking about Xbox One S.
The console of the North American company has a possibility to be the best one. Xbox One is an ideal move for those who only wish to install the platform and start playing, without thinking of any excessive expense to buy a title. After all, now is the era of the Internet and if we don't have enough money to buy, we have more options. Curious? Just click here!
To note, Xbox gives the possibility to access a wide catalog of several successes, such as exclusive releases of most popular games like see Halo 5, the Gears of War franchise, State of Decay, or other classics and even sports ones. To use them, the games are installed on the hard drive and they can’t be played through the cloud like other options.
The advantage of Xbox Game Pass is to be able to subscribe for $ 6,990 per month, although first we have the option of a free trial of 14 days, so we can decide whether we need to take membership or not. On the other hand, one of the advantages of the service is to be able to have from the day of release the new titles that come from franchises that Xbox handles. In this way, we can enjoy video games such as Forza Horizon 4, Crackdown 3, among others.
However, this platform is not the only platform capable of exploiting Xbox One S, because there are also other options to enjoy content through streaming with various applications such as Netflix or YouTube, or to play movies in 4K format, thanks to Blu-ray player enabling this technology.
The above is added value, because unlike competition, there is no console capable of displaying this type of content on discs with this format, except for services via an Internet connection.
Regarding low points, even though we have an extensive game catalog to take advantage of the devices, it's no less true that exclusive games present on Xbox aren't as much as what the competition provides, so if we search for products that point more to titles that can't be found in elsewhere, this console is not the best one, not considering that some games can also be achieved via PCs.
However, it is worth mentioning that the latter can be an advantage, because we have the Play Anywhere feature, which means that we can play launches and resume them from various platforms, either on the console or on the computer. As we can see, with Xbox One S we have advantages and disadvantages, but again, if we need a console that can cover many games, One S is the best.
It is important to note that the Xbox One S can upscale 1080p games to 4K - it isn't a real 4K console. The Xbox One X retains all the media sensibilities of the Xbox One S with an Ultra HD (4K) Blu-ray player, support for HDR content and Dolby Atmos.
