    High hole cowboy.
    Or something along those lines (for anybody that remembers that classic ''Boon').

    Red Dead Redemption 2 now has October release date
    "We apologise to everyone disappointed by this delay."

    Red Dead Redemption 2 will now launch on 26th October for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One - several months later than was previously announced.

    It's a significant delay for Rockstar's Wild West sequel, which was previously pegged for a vague "Q1/Q2 2018" date. Before that, it was originally due to arrive in late 2017.

    In a statement issued this afternoon, Rockstar apologised to fans waiting for the game and blamed the wait on a need for extra development time:

    • Dear All,
    • We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26th 2018. We apologise to everyone disappointed by this delay. While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish.
    • We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope that when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it. In the meantime, please check out these screenshots from the game. We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks.
    • With thanks, Rockstar Games
    Until October, here's a handful of fresh cowboy-filled screenshots. Is that Bonnie MacFarlane?

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the original game. It features a new main character, Arthur Morgan, and the return of the Van der Linde gang who you hunted down in Red Dead Redemption 1.

    The action is expected to take place to the north of the original map, but also include much of the original game's land as well. For more, here's everything we know about Red Dead Redemption 2 so far.

    Can't wait to get red dead. Apparently all these trailers are showing off in game graphics etc. They are not CGI

    Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-order bonuses include GTA cash and a familiar horse
    Pony up.

    GTAO users - encouraging them to pay up now for immediate reward, before transitioning them over to the inevitable Red Dead Online come November.

    [​IMG]
    My lovely War Horse.

    Pre-order customers will also get an Outlaw Survival Kit, whatever that contains, and The War Horse - a legendary steed which was also a DLC unlock in the original Red Dead Redemption.

    The War Horse was arguably the best mount in the game - so much so that owning it completely negated the need to buy any other. It had very high stamina and speed - and it also looked rather nice, too.

    The pre-order bonuses were spotted - briefly - on the Xbox store by Resetera user Simo, although they have since been removed.

    A prequel to the original game, Red Dead Redemption 2 is due to launch this November for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Here's everything we know so far:

    All pre-orders of Red Dead Redemption 2 will include this pair of Story Mode enhancements:

    War Horse: This handsome iron-grey-colored Ardennes War Horse can always be relied on in the heat of the battle. With greater courage and stamina than the average steed, this is a horse that knows how to keep its head under fire.

    DIGITAL PRE-ORDER BONUSES
    In addition to the War Horse and Outlaw Survival Kit mentioned above, digital pre-orders on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store will also receive these added rewards:

    Cash Bonus for Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode: The Van der Linde gang is always looking for ways to make more money and bring in new supplies. This in-game cash bonus will give Arthur Morgan enough to buy a weapon, some food, a handful of useful items and ammunition.

    Treasure Map: Secret buried treasure can be found throughout the world of Red Dead Redemption 2. This exclusive Treasure Map for Story Mode will give Arthur a head start on the hunt for hidden riches. Must pre-order by July 31, 2018.

    [​IMG]

    The Red Dead Redemption 2: Special Edition delivers exclusive content for Story Mode including:

    Bank Robbery Mission and Gang Hideout in Story Mode: Get exclusive access to a Bank Robbery Mission, in which Arthur and a couple of his fellow gang members come up with a daring plan to break in and rob the bank in the southern town of Rhodes. Elsewhere, the Del Lobos Gang has taken over a hacienda - clear this gang’s hideout and rob their stash for a lucrative take.

    Dappled Black Thoroughbred: This thoroughbred racehorse sporting a beautiful reverse-dappled black coat will keep you at the front of the pack with its exceptional speed and acceleration. You will also get the exclusive Nuevo Paraiso Saddle, handmade in dark chocolate leather with silver medallion detailing. This horse and saddle are available in Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode.

    Talisman and Medallion Gameplay Bonuses: These special Story Mode items will give Arthur a helping hand whenever they are equipped. Attaching the Eagle Talon Talisman to his boot, Arthur’s environmental awareness skill will last longer. By carrying the Iguana Scale in his personal Satchel, Arthur will take less damage while riding on horseback.

    Gameplay Boosts, Cash Bonuses & Discounts: This collection of exclusive Story Mode boosts, bonuses and discounts will help Arthur to survive out in the harsh wilderness and better provide for his gang members and their camp. The Core Stat boost benefits Arthur’s Stamina, Health and Dead Eye Cores. Earn more cash during robbery missions with the Van der Linde gang, and when hunting and selling animal carcasses. Receive discounts on all upgrades to the Van der Linde gang’s camp.

    The Nuevo Paraiso Gunslinger Outfit: This exclusive Story Mode outfit for Arthur is inspired by the clothing worn by vaqueros and banditos south of the border. The outfit features a wide brimmed black cowboy hat, deep indigo coat, worn denim chaps, leather gloves and boots.

    Free Access to Additional Weapons: A good range of weapons is essential for survival in the Old West. Get free access to three weapons at the in-game Gunsmiths in Story Mode: the robust Volcanic Pistol, devastating Pump Action Shotgun and versatile Lancaster Varmint Rifle.

The Copperhead Enforcer Outfit features a fur-lined saddle-brown leather waistcoat, two-tone gloves, and pinstripe black pants tucked into black leather boots.

    Black Chestnut Thoroughbred: Outrun the competition with this thoroughbred racehorse in a striking black chestnut coat and also receive the exclusive High Plains Cutting Saddle beautifully crafted in jet-black leather with gold metal accents. This horse and saddle are available in online.

    I read up on the hard drive space being 105gb but some people are saying that the game is 54gb and when it said 105gb minimum was due to download space /decompression and install.

    As you know when you download a game say 10gb and you have 20gb it can still not be enough as it has to download the zip file then decompress then install

    Worse, downloading needs about 150GB! :o
    [source]
    I've preordered the disc version, so I think my release day is lost to copying 99GB from blu-rays to hdd ....
    Oh well, a small price to pay if the game lives up to my expectations

    Shots of the (physical) map are popping up left and right!
    The interesting part is when you compare the New Austin region (of part 1) with the rest of the map! :o
    I remember that "back in the day" I thought it was huge, but now is only about 1/3 of the total.

    And - while frowned upon - this deserves a seperate post, instead of editing my last:


    I guess I'm late, but.....
    BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :drinks::clap::woot:

    So, did you get that pro? :D
