Screens From Red Dead Redemption 2

Here are 13 all new screenshots from Red Dead Redemption 2 - featuring Arthur Morgan, Dutch, John and the rest of the Van der Linde gang. You can also find additional exclusive screens across this week’s first look previews with a few more to come this weekend at the official Rockstar Twitter, Instagram and Facebook channels.  Stay tuned for more Red Dead Redemption 2 info next month including first details about the game’s special editions and more.

First Look Previews of Red Dead Redemption 2

In addition to yesterday’s debut of Official Trailer #3 for Red Dead Redemption 2, select outlets around the world published their first look features after seeing the game. Read on for a roundup of what they had to say and check out each site for full previews and exclusive screenshots. "After finally seeing Red Dead Redemption 2 in action for the first time, it’s clear that the next great Western is not a film. It’s Red Dead Redemption 2… The Old West comes alive in Red Dead Redemption 2 not solely through its environment, but through the characters the player interacts with; from brief encounters with travelers on the road, to Arthur’s weather-beaten gang compatriots, to the lawmen and last remaining rival gangs pursuing the gang who loom large over the proceedings. This is a world as beautiful as it is violent and unforgiving and Arthur is a product of it as much as the folk he encounters." – Telegraph "There’s a sense of connection in Red Dead Redemption 2 I’ve never seen in a game before. Everything has its place and everyone has a purpose… There’s deep-rooted connection between you, your actions and the surrounding world, which is critical to everything that Red Dead Redemption 2 is… Rockstar made an interesting point when talking about the game – it never wants you to feel as though being pushed in a certain direction, or that the developer is somehow guiding you. Every decision is yours, and you have to live by those decisions, no matter how good or bad they are." - IGN “Having seen it, and having thought about it, I assure you that it has exceeded all my expectations. RDR2 is the game that the fans of the genre have been dreaming of since they said goodbye to John Marston in 2010... In hardly no time at all, I left with a feeling that I had been witness to a new generation in videogames.” – Hobby Consolas “Well get ready to have your socks knocked off – RDR2 is graphically majestic. The sceneries are breath-taking, the panoramas and the whole ambience is very impressive. It’s rich, it’s dense and it’s chock full of details… The attention to detail is everywhere and plentiful, RDR2 offers a sheer volume of detail never seen before with a degree of polish that only Rockstar knows how to do. Mind blowing.” – Jeuxactu "It’s just incredible how many charming details are packed into the world of Red Dead Redemption 2, how the developers have meticulously given thought to the smallest subtleties, and how utterly breathtaking the first impression of the world is… As the lights in the Rockstar demo room turned back on, I was dumbfounded. I did not expect an evolution this significant. The world, the interaction with it, the small and large details – all of it seems to amount to one of the best open worlds one has ever experienced in a game." - GamePro “Red Dead Redemption 2 goes beyond the open-world concept… The game impressed us with its ethereal panoramas, intense and ferocious gun battles and, again, its ability to convey the ruthlessness of true frontier life, even more so the fully interactive representation of the West. But what really left us speechless was the work to rebuild and restructure artificial intelligence... After Red Dead Redemption 2 releases, for free roaming and contemporary games things will never be the same” – Everyeye "Rockstar’s dedication to the medium continues. It fuses new gameplay experiences with ground-breaking visual technology -  Gun fighting, soundtrack, and the new camp system have expanded the possibilities of what is possible in videogames....The most revolutionary system in RDR2 is the camp. It’s the first time I have seen anything like this in a game […] this new addition is as revolutionary as GTAV’s character switching...I had just a very small glimpse of what is shaping up to be a huge game, but what I did see blew me away to an immeasurable degree" - Famitsu

GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist Out Now

When the stakes are this high, who else can you trust to save the day but the craziest criminals ever to grace the Los Santos underworld? The risks are colossal, the enemies all but unstoppable… but the rewards are mouth-watering and a massive adrenaline spike is absolutely guaranteed. Assemble your crew for the biggest Online adventure yet, across 3 sprawling acts - The Doomsday Heist is now available to play in GTA Online. The Doomsday Scenario Billionaire entrepreneur Avon Hertz and his pet neural network Cliffford have stumbled upon evidence that nefarious outside forces are working on a plan so diabolical it could end life as we know it. Somehow, Lester Crest is tasked with assembling a team deadly enough - and crazy enough - to do what it takes to bring them down. That’s where you come in. It’s going to take some luck, some firepower and some serious teamwork to take this threat head-on, assisted by Avon’s access to the latest in lethal blue-sky tactical hardware. The Weird Turn Pro It’s time to assemble your Organization or Motorcycle Club and prepare for a new kind of war. First, one member of your crew needs to own one of the previously undisclosed IAA facilities hidden under Southern San Andreas, giving you access to the new advanced planning room where you will map out the steps to launch and complete each mission. This time, operations will run a little differently: crews of 2-4 players will now be able to work together to complete every mission. Bigger, Deadlier and More Complex than Ever Each of the three massive Heist acts that comprise the story of The Doomsday Heist involves negotiating multiple ruthless Freemode prep missions, tactical setup operations, and experimental weapons and vehicles - each ending with an over-the-top finale that brings a payoff big enough to comfortably share with your fellow crew members. Some missions may involve competition for resources with other crews in Freemode, and MC Presidents can even enlist additional club members, boosting your squad to up to 8 players to help secure your objective in these missions. A New Set of Tools If you’ve been drafted to prevent the end of the world, you better have access to the finest technology available. MKII upgrades are now available via the Mobile Operations Center or Avenger’s Weapon Workshop for the Pump Shotgun, Special Carbine, Marksman Rifle, Heavy Revolver, Bullpup Rifle and SNS Pistol. The Doomsday Heist also brings access to the ultimate in offensive weaponry: from the futuristic fury of the Khanjali tank, to the long-awaited madness of the Mammoth Thruster personal jetpack, you’ll have everything you need to bring down a small army. Speaking of small armies, purchase of the Facility includes the optional ability to have your own Strike Team on call, or an Orbital Cannon capable of immolating any patch of ground that incurs your wrath. Slow to arm and reload but devastating when deployed tactically – at the moment a gang of rivals is clustered on the same area of the map, for instance – the Orbital Cannon is less a weapon of last resort and more the ultimate revenge, served ice cold. The Avenger So you’re an aspiring criminal and you and your crew have been tasked with staving off an existential threat, but you need just the right vehicle. How about a vertical take-off, turreted, flying fortress/experimental weapons lab in the sky/death-spitting collateral damage producer that practically flies itself? The Avenger is all these things and more. Store it in your Facility, get it fitted out with a Vehicle Mod Shop, a Weapon Workshop, and a suite of ferocious weapon upgrades, and you’ll soon be wreaking a whole new level of havoc without ever having to land. Return of The Mastermind Challenge and More The Doomsday Heist offers a new set of brutal challenges, all with some serious financial payback for any teams hardcore enough to complete them. All three finale missions have Elite Challenge objectives for those in search of a seriously high bar, and for the perfectionists, the Criminal Mastermind challenges are back across all three acts of the heist for teams of 2, 3 or 4 players along with a brand new suite of Achievements and Trophies. New Vehicles, Weapon Customizations and More And we’ve barely scratched the surface – discover a fleet of new vehicles, from beastly weaponized vehicles to mercurial sports cars and more: Thruster (Warstock) Deluxo (Warstock) Stromberg (Warstock) RCV (Warstock) Chernobog (Warstock) Barrage (Warstock) Akula (Warstock) Khanjali (Warstock) Volatol (Warstock) Comet Safari (Legendary Motorsport) Ocelot Pariah (Legendary Motorsport) Coil Raiden (Legendary Motorsport) Ubermacht SC1 (Legendary Motorsport) Vapid Riata (Southern San Andreas Super Autos) Declasse Yosemite (Southern San Andreas Super Autos) The Doomsday Heist also features a trove of new clothing and personal customization options, as well as a surprise on the radio just in time for your fight to save the world. It’s all available to play now, free inside the world of GTA Online - with much more still to come.

Split Personality - You’ve only got a few seconds of hurtling down Mount Chiliad on a BMX to make that age-old decision. Left or right? With the pack or on your own? Jet-powered super car or flying motorbike? Featuring BMXes, the FMJ, Rocket Voltic, Besra, Oppressor and Parachutes. The Dragon - What could be more appropriate for a diverse and cosmopolitan city like Los Santos than a race track in honor of the Chinese year of the Giant-Dragon-with-a-Fighter-Jet-in-its-Mouth? Featuring Compacts, the Faggio Sport, Molotok and Vagner. Vinewood Thrills – Cruise under the Vinewood sign and ride an antique sailboat off the coast - inside a five minute lap with an executive chopper and a supercar joining the dots. Featuring Motorcycles, the Swift, Marquis, Seabreeze and Vagner. Warped – You’re in a freefalling supercar above the business district. You blink, and you’re piloting a jet fighter.

Jump instantly from the curves of a gritty, downtown street race straight into a speeding jet high above Los Santos, then dive face first down Raton Canyon on a jet ski and more. Transform Races are new and unique stunt tracks that seamlessly transition across land, sea and air, running the gamut of available vehicle types - everything from Supers and Off-Roads, to Boats, Planes, and Helicopters - and even some skydiving thrown in for good measure.
