For those of you who were fans of Red Dead Revolver, Red Dead Redemption will be an amazing journey into the Wild West prior to the first World War. The tech used has been extensively researched to make experiencing combat in the Wild West as authentic as possible.
On April 27, take a trip to the Wild West, and help Marston accomplish his mission. I certainly will be.
