November 2, 2018

For what is probably the most anticipated video game of 2018, Red Dead Redeption 2 by Rockstar Games is one of the most compelling console experiences on the market. With total freedom in an open world environment set in the old west, think of it as "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" version of Grand Theft Auto.

Aside from its stunning graphics, addicting gameplay, and captivating storyline, Red Dead Redeption 2 also sports an original soundtrack featuring the work of over 110 artists. Among those artists, is Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, whose song "Cruel, Cruel World" is featured in the game's emotional epilogue.

Composed by Woody Jackson (Grand Theft Auto 5, L.A. Noire), the game's soundtrack received contributions from many other big-name composers like David Ferguson (Johnny Cash), David Ralicke (Sons of Anarchy), Gabe Witcher (True Detective) Luke O'Malley, Mario Batkovic, Matt Sweeney, Rabih Beaini, Senyawa, as well as music from popular artists like D'Angelo, Willie Nelson, Nas, Rhiannon Giddens and more!
