Saddle up. Rockstar Games released its next big Red Dead Online update today, and we’ve called in an expert to help us explore this brave new frontier. Join the Game Informer team and former GI-video editor, current MinnMax cohort, and YouTube sensation Leo Vader as we play through Red Dead’s new “Blood Money” expansion.
For those who might not remember, Leo was both a Game Informer intern in 2016 and our funniest video man between 2017 and 2020. Since leaving Game Informer, he’s launched a blossoming YouTube channel, full of well-thought-out essays about everything from ADD, to cuss words, to ketchup. He’s also one of the many contributors to MinnMax, founded by another former GI video editor, Ben Hanson.
There’s doubtful another person alive that’s a bigger fan of Red Dead Online than Leo, so make sure to tune in as he guides me, Alex Van Aken, and Marcus Stewart around this open-world cowboy epic. Make sure to ask any Game Queries about Red Dead you may have in the chat, and Leo will be sure to help you out.
To get yourself in the Red Dead mood, make sure to check out our 10/10 review for Red Dead Redemption 2, our recent trip the Tribeca Festival to see the game’s music live and in-person, and Leo’s past Red Dead Online streams.
Ready to come hang out? Our stream is going live today at 2 p.m. CT (3 p.m. ET) over on our Twitch channel. If you’re not able to tune in live, fear not. The stream will be archived later over on our YouTube channel. It should be a fun and goofy time. We hope to see you there! If you’re planning on checking out the expansion for yourself, let us know what you’re most excited about down in the comments.
