Red Dead Redemption 2
A little game called Red Dead Redemption 2 was released today for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. The game was developed by a little studio called Rockstar Games and published by Take-Two. I'm sure we can all appreciate that a company like Take-Two extended a hand to these up and coming developers.
An epic tale of honor and loyalty set in the dying days of the outlaw age, Red Dead Redemption 2 follows Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. Following a botched robbery in the western town of Blackwater, the gang are forced to flee and with federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, leaving Arthur to make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

In some surprising news, it seems as though Red Dead Redemption 2 will have a multiplayer component. Hey, not too shabby for such a small studio! A beta for what they're calling Red Dead Online will begin this November. These spunky upstarts even had time to release a Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App for both iOS and Android devices.

A number of reviews have already come out for the game. OpenCritic's average of 97 places it among the best reviewed games of all time. Metacritic's 98 aggregate places the Xbox One version in the fourth position of the best reviewed games of all time. It should be noted that the Xbox One X version of the game runs at a full 4K resolution and at a near steady 30fps. You can find out more in Digital Foundry's extensive two-part technical analysis of the game. Part two is where all consoles are tested for resolution and framerate.

I don't know what it is, but something is telling me this studio is going places.
