Giddy up!

Microsoft has just announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 will arrive on the Xbox Game Pass for Console in May. Rockstar Games’ open-world western will unfortunately replace another one of the studio’s smash hits - Grand Theft Auto 5. Red Dead Redemption 2 will come to Xbox Game Pass on May 7, 2020

If you’re itching to play this incredible game again, you should know that it’s coming with a few Story Mode content additions as well as a much-needed Photo Mode. Red Dead Redemption 2 also includes Red Dead Online, which allows players to team up with or against each other in multiplayer gameplay. 

Red Dead Redemption 2 serves as a prequel to the first game, following the messy past of the Van der Linde gang. You play as Arthur Morgan, a man torn between his loyalty towards the gang’s leader Dutch Van der Linde, and his own principles. The game features an incredibly cinematic story, with excellent writing and rich characters. 

Currently, you can get your first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for S$1, which gives you Xbox Game Pass for PC, Xbox Game Pass for Console and Xbox Live Gold for an entire month. The differences between each version of Xbox Game Pass are outlined here.

Playing Red Dead Redemption 2 for S$1 is practically daylight robbery - go nuts! If you need more information, check out Gameaxis’ review of the console version of the game here, and our review of the PC version here.
