We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available worldwide for PlayStation 4.

From Rockstar Games, the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will also include access to Red Dead Online. Launching initially as a public beta this November, Red Dead Online is the evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original Red Dead Redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways.

Cannot wait to play it. Any chance of RDR 1 remastered for PS4?

    I’m going to guess no. That’s not Rockstars style at all.

Please sort out Amazon.ca, there handling of your game is beyond unacceptable.

i preordered RDR2 june 13 2017

i have no estimated ship time with amazon prime priority shipping and have been getting the runaround 3 different calls.

they say i won’t be getting it because of Rockstar until nov 1-7.

it’s completely egregious and they need to ge held accountable to someone.

i also bought and had preordered red dead redemption on ps3 at launch. no issues that time. One of my favourite games in 30 years of the hobby.

I have secured a copy today at best buy and will be playing it come hell or high water. But i am incredibly angry with Amazon.ca over it and i will be taking all future preorders to bestbuy walmart etc.

this means that i will miss out on preorder dlc, despite being one of the most loyal customers to both rockstar and amazon.ca

two games i cared about this year for launch RDR2 and God of War. i’m incredibly frustated to have all this bs associated with the game now, these kimds of things really leach out the joy in the hobby. Especially when others are scalping copies bought from amazon.ca locally on Kijiji.

Game looks incredible looking forward to play it this afternoon. Everyone enjoy it.

    Same issue here, I was able to get a 20$ credit and I filed a complaint with the competition bureau

Will anything be censored from the PS4 version of this game?

I ask because now I have to wonder that about games on PlayStation. Now I have that as a barrier to getting excited about playing games on this platform.

Why is that, by the way? Could anyone from Sony tell me why I don’t get to have faith in your platform anymore? I used to see PlayStation as the only platform I really need with others being optional indulgences. Not so anymore. Not when some game announcements are now going to induce censorship anxiety instead of excitement. You can’t be my platform of choice like that. I won’t subject myself to it.

So why are you doing it? I searched “PlayStation censorship on Twitter and I didn’t really see anyone saying they’re happy about the censorship you’re doing. Plenty of people who are upset though.

So yeah, hopefully someone from Sony will read this and enlighten me as to why this isn’t a horrible shift in policy. If not, I can keep asking until someone from Sony does see it answer.

Please fix the ps4 pro version, its blurry, the depth of field is incredibly blurry and the Hdr washes out most colors. Insomniac or Guerilla studios would be happy to help Rockstar out with how they went about when creating an incredible looking Hdr checkerboard solution. Spider-man and Horizon look much better than this.
Patch it or at least give us a chance to turn off that blurry crap that you are forcing on people with high end consoles.

    It’s funny that Sony sold PS4 Pro bundles for this game which in many ways is a showcase for how NOT to implement Pro support in a title.

First off, the in-game vignetting effect needs to go. You’re already using a lot of bloom, so the added vignetting only creates a tunnel-vision experience (this is particularly troublesome at night). I want to see the stars at night please. I grew up in a rural area. You don’t see tunnel-vision in nature like this unless you’re dying.

Currently running the game in 1080p on Pro as the “4K” presentation is all messed up and drops frames too.

Very slow user interface…. why the hell do I need to HOLD buttons to take items, HOLD buttons to access inventory….. the story pacing is slow enough as is!

    ElektroDragon said:

    Not to mention holding buttons to follow people, etc. etc. I end up having to put my hand in knots if I want to look around the environment while following people on horseback.

Hey guys!

Could you please add the Red Dead Redemption 2 AUDIO profile for the PULSE ELITE in the companion app??? Every other headset has that audio profile; I don’t believe the Pulse Elite can have it!!!! Please!

Be careful about buying anything from playstation. All they care about is money. So if you buy something that is VR and dont own one and didnt read the very small print that says VR… Sony will say thanks for your money now eat crap and deal with it. It’s no wonder everyone is going to Microsoft, because they actually care about there customers unlike playstation.

    none of the big companies asides from steam have digital games refunds.

    what exactly was vr that you bought that has anything at all to do with RDR2?

    you need to read, its not fine print the vr games are clearly labeled, if you are not sure you need to see if its supports non VR not the other way around.

    what is bs however is no refunds on preorders, but i don’t preorder on psn, so it is moot to me.

    you can also call within a week for a price reduction if they put an item on sale up to 7 days after you bought.

    if anyone is sleazy and greedy it’s Nintendo. you have to make dm sure you want to buy digital when you do that is it.

Trophies for the Online mode can be seen when comparing yours with friend – drop down the list to the bottom and discover what sounds to be part of this online:
– level 1to 50 (at least)
– crafting items, and munitions (will we be forced to mold our own bullet and craft our black powder – when no armory available?)
– camp and camp enhancement
– capacity to have more than 4 horses

Eager to fall in this RDROnline as I felt into GTAOnline (hoping by the way to see no flying horses or portable Gatling – the kind of bozo tools that impair the game balance between online players and disrespect the game immersion RockStar do so finely succeed at procuring with their GTA and RDR franchise).

Just imagine RockStar being in charge for Star Wars Online and… another story.
