Perhaps the most anticipated game of this year is finally going to release in just a day. Yes!
The full report goes into a lot of detail on the main differences between all console versions and highlights the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 does much to get the most out of this generation hardware.

In Red Dead Redemption 2, PS4 players will be able to customise Arthur Morgan with the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit. So, if you'll excuse me, I have another train to, er, "catch".

While none of our own times here are firm for how long your own download of Red Dead Redemption 2 will take, this should at least give you a ballpark estimate of what to expect once you pick the game up for yourself. At points I present some dialogue snippets that impressed me, though I've been careful to avoid all story context outside of the intro of the game. Hopefully, once the game finishes downloading, you can spend a couple hours exploring the Wild West before bed.
