Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 is an impressive achievement in video game design and development. It depicts an open-world that envelops you and fills it with characters and stories that will stick with you long after the credits have rolled. If you haven’t already played it–and a gritty, emotionally powerful wild west story sounds appealing–there are a couple of discounts as part of the Amazon Prime Day sales that will get you the game for cheap.
Ironically, the game is actually cheapest at Walmart, which–like many other retailers–is capitalizing on the increased desire to spend money created by Amazon’s Prime Day by having a sale of its own. The upshot is that Red Dead Redemption 2 is available at the retailer for just $30, which is half the usual $60 asking price. If you’ve got a Walmart nearby you can have it ordered to a store and pick it up for free so you’re not spending extra on delivery.

Red Dead Redemption 2 received a 9/10 in GameSpot’s review. Kallie Plagge said that, while the game focuses on Arthur Morgan’s story, it’s also “about the entire Van der Linde gang–as a community, as an idea, and as the death rattle of the Wild West. It is about Arthur, too, but as the lens through which you view the gang, his very personal, very messy story supports a larger tale.
She continued: “Some frustrating systems and a predictable mission structure end up serving that story well, though it does take patience to get through them and understand why. Red Dead Redemption 2 is an excellent prequel, but it’s also an emotional, thought-provoking story in its own right, and it’s a world that is hard to leave when it’s done.” Read our full Red Dead Redemption 2 review for a deeper analysis of the game.
In addition to Red Dead Redemption 2, Walmart is also one of the few retailers offering a discount on the Nintendo Switch. It also has games like Destiny 2, Skyrim, Fallout 76, Metro Exodus, NBA 2K19, and more on sale. Check out our full list of deals at Walmart on Amazon Prime day for everything noteworthy.
