Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now. If you want to start playing it immediately, you'll want to download the game from the PlayStation Store or Xbox's Microsoft Store.
The downside is that these downloads tend to be the most expensive way to get your hands on the game and without a physical copy you won't be able to trade it in at GAME or CeX stores once you've finished playing it.
From the PlayStation Store the game is £59.99 (click here to buy from PlayStation Store), and it's the same price from the Microsoft store (click here to buy from Microsoft Store). The Special Edition and Ultimate Edition are also available here and are available at the same price as physical editions, but you'll miss out on the printed map as you're opting for a digital download (we talk more about this below).
