    The highly acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 will be making its way to Xbox Game Pass, where subscribers can enjoy it for no extra cost. The Rockstar game will be available on May 7th, for Xbox One users. To compensate this addition, Rockstar will be removing Grand Theft Auto V from Xbox Game Pass for consoles on the same day. If you still haven't tried Game Pass yet, you can get a month of it for a single dollar, from Microsoft themselves.

    Now we can enjoy horse testicle physics

    FOR FREE

    hype.

    Really that's basically all the game offers it's pretty mediocre otherwise. Rockstar couldn't make an interesting open world game to save their lives. They focus on story despite having what I can only assume is a kindergarten class writing up their narrative.

    I'd rather they just give us a half-off sale on Steam, but okay.

    Shame it's not being added to PC game pass, but that's nice I guess.

    Probably so that they don't have the two most recent games they've put out available on the same "free" platform

    Awesome game! Totally worth it with my beast pc at locked 60fps high/ultra, mouse and keyboard and no immersion breaking stupid auto aiming.

    Tried it at launch in an X, couldn't stand it... 30 fps, stupid auto aiming, convoluted controls, movement felt too heavy...
    Night and day compared to how it felt on pc!

    I wish i could forget about its story and events... Being a narrative heavy game, once i finished i never felt like going back, but i sure remember it, together with Metro Exodus, as the most interesting gaming experiences of 2019.

    It isn't, but that isn't what he said.

    Must be a bit humiliating for them, 2 games in a decade and they, now have to essentially gove it a way for free (practically).

    I'd imagine they view this as an extended demo, hoping users like online and buy once it's removed.

    They did have a spike with GTA recently, despite it being a toxic s**test, although I suppose all online games are people are toxic in general when anonymity is given.

    Hopefully it comes to PC gamepass eventually. I'd like to give it a try, I loved Red Dead Redemption. But everything I've read about 2 makes me not want to spend full price on it.
