Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to the Xbox console’s Game Pass on May 7

Were you among those who didn’t join the hot rush to purchase Red Dead Redemption 2 when it first launched? Are you an owner of an Xbox One? Are you subscribed to the Xbox Game Pass service for the console? If you’ve ticked off all three boxes, then your situation has earned you a free copy of the title.

Not only will this get players the full game, it will also include Red Dead Online, the open world multiplayer portion that will be Rockstar’s focus for updates to the game in lieu of single-player DLC. Which is just fine for our little corner of the gaming world.

If you’re a subscriber to the Game Pass service on PC, you’re out of luck, as this is console only. Seeing as the game was released to console first in October 2018 and released to PC in November 2019, perhaps PC Game Pass players will get their free copy of Yeehaw Skyrim in 2021. Otherwise, Xbox owners can mark their calendars for Thursday, May 7th, and pre-download the game right now.

Hmm. Check all the boxes for me as well. And I own it for the PC too. Do I know install it on the Xbox1 and give it a whirl?

You know what? Why not. Why the frak not! The comparison might do me some good.

I tick all of those three boxes as well.
But I probably still won’t download it. I didn’t bother downloading GTA V when it was on Game Pass, I just can’t bring myself to care about Rockstar products, they’re so dull to me.
In terms of gaming hot takes, I’ve always had Rockstar games boring as a top one even as the world goes nuts for them.

I liked Bully and Vice City as a kid, that was about it.

Well, I have to say, in my opinion, RDR2 is probably one of the top 3 games I’ve ever played. It’s stunning, the attention to detail is utterly insane, and the story will evoke genuine emotion.

I know there’s all the tiny details, but I also can’t help but think if they weren’t there maybe the team making it would have been less abused.

At least now I know they’ll release new seasonal stuff in May (supposed to be in March).

I was eating a meatball when I read “yeehaw Skyrim” and I choked on it laughing.
