Cyberpunk 2077 recently received two huge upgrades; one in the form of the 2.0 update which brought vehicular combat, a new wanted system, and several quality-of-life updates. There is also a new expansion called Phantom Liberty featuring new vehicles, weapons, and a brand-new district called Dogtown.

Considered as the Magnum Opus of Rockstar, RDR 2 will certainly provide you with hours and hours of quality gaming. The game features incredible attention to detail, some of which you wouldn’t even notice if you weren’t familiar with it beforehand. The studio has meticulously crafted RDR 2 to showcase every element that adds even a pinch of immersion. Its authentic environment provides jaw-dropping visuals whether you are out in dense forests or exploring the streets of Saint Denis. Red Dead Redemption 2 was initially released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles but it will also run on the current-gen consoles, thanks to backwards compatibility.
