Chaps! It's the best Red Dead Redemption 2 leak yet

Is saddle you got?

Red Dead Redemption 2 excitement is peaking ahead of the review embargo at (high) noon UK time today and, of course, the game's release tomorrow - and video footage continues to leak.

This latest leak, however, shows Rockstar's cowboy blockbuster in a very different light. It's so boring, in fact, the person streaming has to leave - to canter off. Take a look...

It's because it's the game's installation being streamed! Yee-haw!

Then again, Red Dead's installation really is a lengthy process; it took well over an hour for the streamer in question here.

RDR2, remember, is a large game, occupying 107GB storage on Xbox One and 99GB on PS4. As such, it comes on two discs - one for installation purposes and the other for play. This means RDR2 won't need to download the rest of the data, which should help keep day-one patches small. The streamer in the video only downloads a 3.5GB file.

You could, of course, buy the game digitally and preload it ready for launch. Not long to wait now. And why not read our Red Dead Redemption 2 review while you wait?
