There’s some pretty wild news for Xbox Game Pass console subscribers today, as GTA 5 is due to be swapped out for a certain cowboy game very shortly.
Red Dead Redemption 2 arrives on 7th May, the same day Rockstar’s other huge hit GTA 5 leaves the subscription service. The latter has been available since January, so it’s had a few months on the service, but Xbox Game Pass subscribers get a 20 per cent discount if they want to purchase GTA 5 permanently.
If you missed Red Dead Redemption 2 when it first released back in October 2018, there probably couldn’t be a better time to dive in: we’re all stuck indoors, so why not experience nature (and thunderstorms) in a virtual wild west? It’s also got a lengthy story, and although the narrative does drag a little at points, the final chapters are rather spectacular. Just as well we’ve all got plenty of time on our hands.
