One of the hottest games of 2018 was Red Dead Redemption 2. This sequel developed by Rockstar Games has so much going for it, from a massive open world to addicting combat. If you’ve ever been a fan of Western movies, this game lets you play out those fantasies in grand fashion.

The game — even till this day — sells extremely well on all major platforms. It just reached a huge milestone. As of June 30, 25 million copies of this game have been shipped. That’s quite an impressive figure, which isn’t that surprising.

Rockstar did a masterful job at taking everything that made the original RDR great and improving upon pivotal elements. For instance, there is just so much to do in this sequel. It’s pretty insane to think about. The main missions will suck you in, but the side missions will keep you coming back for more.

The very act of going out in the wild and testing your mettle against the elements is a fun time. Additionally, Red Dead Redemption 2 constantly gets updates. They don’t appear to be stopping any time soon, either. The CEO of the parent company Take-Two Interactive remarked on how excited he is about bringing more content to the platform.

Players of this game thus have a lot of value to look forward to for the foreseeable future. Gamers love titles that receive constant support, and Red Dead Redemption 2 certainly is one of those games.

If there ever was a perfect game, Red Dead Redemption 2 certainly meets the criteria. Let’s start with the story. It checks all the boxes. This time, Arthur Morgan is in the driver seat. He was picked up by Dutch as a boy, and through a series of events, ends up on the wrong side of the law.

Fast forward decades later, and Morgan and his gang of outlaws are on the run after a botched heist. They quickly retreat in the mountains. As Arthur, you’ll learn more about good versus evil and will have the opportunity to choose sides.

In addition to a compelling story, the vast environments that you get to explore will have you hooked right when you pick up the controls. From snowy mountains to swamps with alligators, this game has it all. The variety really keeps gameplay fresh no matter what mission you’re on.

You would honestly be hard-pressed to find a more in-depth and immersive Western gaming experience. Let’s see if Red Dead Redemption 2 can keep up these shipment figures.
