Grab Red Dead Redemption 2 for half off with this rare discount at Walmart

Sprawling open-world games from Rockstar hold onto their value for a long time, so a discount like this on Red Dead Redemption 2 (opens in new tab) is akin to an early Christmas miracle. This Black Friday game deal (opens in new tab) will get you a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 for $30 at Walmart for either PS4 (opens in new tab) or Xbox One (opens in new tab). That's half off of Red Dead Redemption 2's standard price of $59.99, and very likely the best deal you're going to see on the game for months (if not until Black Friday 2020)

If you played the original Red Dead Redemption, you probably don't need to be sold on its sequel (or prequel, technically speaking). If you haven't, know that it's easily the biggest and broadest video game western story ever told - or you can totally disregard the story and just roam around being a mountain man as you hunt for pelts and fish up dinner for your camp. All that's just starting to describe the single-player campaign, and it's not even touching on Red Dead Online.

Much more than a standard multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online is very much its own game that just happens to share a map and mechanics with its single-player counterpart. You can create your own cowpoke and then ride out with friends, strangers, or just your little lonesome self on an odyssey across the online old west. Also, you can get cool rewards just for collecting weird stuff and mailing it to some lady. It's great!
