Subscribers of Xbox Game Pass for consoles are getting a real treat from Microsoft as Red Dead Redemption 2 will be gunslinging its way onto the service on 7 May 2020.

"Coming on May 7 to Xbox Game Pass for Console: Red Dead Redemption 2. Winner of over 175 Game of the Year Awards and recipient of over 250 perfect scores, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of honor and loyalty at the dawn of the modern age", Microsoft wrote.

We must admit we've lost count of Red Dead Redemption 2's awards and accolades because praises of the game were sung from all over, so it's mighty nice of Microsoft to do it for us. 

If you somehow missed out on Rockstar's masterpiece, now's the perfect time to dive in, what with the social isolation in full swing. Even if the 175 awards mean nothing to you, do yourself a favour and just start the game - Red Dead Redemption 2 will have you mesmerised and glued to the screen in no tame.

Red Dead Redemption 2's story is set in 1899's America, where protagonist Arthur Morgan is on the run along with the rest of the Van der Linde gang. 

With just about everyone on their trail and none of those with good intentions, the gang must fight to stay alive, while simultaneously trying to survive the conflicts from within.

"Now featuring additional Story Mode content and a fully-featured Photo Mode, Red Dead Redemption 2 also includes free access to the shared living world of Red Dead Online, where players take on an array of roles to carve their own unique path on the frontier as they track wanted criminals as a Bounty Hunter, create a business as a Trader, unearth exotic treasures as a Collector or run an underground distillery as a Moonshiner and much more", Microsoft wrote.
