Red Dead Redemption 2 releasing on October 26th 2018

Here at TiX we recently published an article detailing our most anticipated games of 2018, and its fair to say that Red Dead Redemption 2 is right up near the top! Originally slated for a spring 2018 release, Rockstar have now confirmed that it will be arriving on October 26th. Another example of a game being pushed back to make sure it is the best that it can be, something we should all applaud.

In a quote on their website, Rockstar Games said;

“Dear All,

We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26th 2018. We apologize 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.”

The new screenshots released certainly look impressive, and they are all below for your viewing pleasure!

UK retailer reveals possible release date for Red Dead Redemption 2

We all know pre-ordering is a big thing especially when it’s for one of the anticipated titles of the year but we also know the secrecy that surrounds the release date and the speculation that goes with it. However occasionally the net slips and the odd date appears on the web getting us all excited as to when a game might hit our shelves. One such title to fall into this category is Red Dead Redemption 2.

A known retailer has posted the pre-order option like all others stores on their website but the only difference is they have put a delivery date of the 2nd October 2017 on it. Now is this the release date of the game, who knows, but it certainly aligns with the Fall 2017 release window that the game has marked on its site. As we have all seen in the past though games with proposed release dates move and change due to further development needed, changing conditions to the market or even the development teams. So for the time being we can pencil this in as a maybe and just keep our fingers crossed.

Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

Tron Light Cycles come to GTA Online

Ever fancied taking to the streets of Los Santos and reliving the famous Tron movie moments on LIght Cycles?. Well now’s your chance as Rockstar Games bring you their latest DLC for GTA Online, Deadline.

Take to the streets on your blazingly fast Nagasaki Shotaro as up to four players compete in the new Deadline Adversary Mode. Like Light Cycles, each player is mounted on a different colored Shotaro, which emits a light trail as you race through the arena. Make calculated movements to force opponents to cross your trail’s path and take advantage of strategic power-ups for a competitive edge; use Boost to speed ahead and cut off your opponents, slow down time with Zoned for precision movement, or leap your opponent’s light trail with Hop. Any player unfortunate to come into contact with a light trail will meet an explosive ending.

Playing the new Deadline Adversary Mode will unlock the bike for purchase at Legendary Motorsport, and the Deadline Racing Outfit will be available at any clothing store. Like any new deal, for a limited time only, owners of the Shotaro will also receive a free Nagasaki Tee — whooooo!
