Red Dead Redemption 2 All Cheat Codes for PS4 & XBOX with Guide [Updated]

As any of the Previous Rockstar Games, Red Dead Redemption 2 initially comes with cheat codes support for a little bit of fun in the gameplay and equipped with an in-game cheat code menu.
The cheat code menu is fully functional, allowing players to activate incredibly handy or just plain silly parameters. Below, we’ve gathered some of the game’s cheat codes and, when appropriate, the conditions for unlocking them.

How to use cheat codes in RDR 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 Cheats menu

The cheat code menu can be found in the settings tab of the in-game pause menu. Triggering a cheat code requires inputting a specific phrase in the cheat menu. In some cases, a cheat code won’t activate until certain mission-based goals have been met.

NOTE: You should know that activating any cheat code disables Achievements/Trophies for your save file. Best to make a separate save file for cheat use if you don’t want to screw up your main game.


Cheat Codes and their use

Permanent Inebriation

“A fool on command”

By entering the cheat code ‚ÄúA fool on command‚ÄĚ, players unlock the Drunk toggle like in GTA 4 ;).¬† As its name infers, flipping the toggle on will make Arthur Morgan permanently drunk. Flipping the toggle off will instantly sober Arthur back up, no coffee or cold showers required.


“Better than my dog”

If you‚Äôre not sufficiently bonded with your horse, keeping it close by can be hard. However, the cheat code ‚ÄúBetter than my dog‚ÄĚ will summon your horse to you no matter where it is. If you‚Äôre caught up in other activities and can‚Äôt be bothered to backtrack for your steed, this code really helps.

Good as New

“You flourish before your die”

In a game¬†as realistic¬†as Red Dead Redemption 2, a prolonged strenuous activity can take its toll. Fortunately, the ‚ÄúYou flourish before your die‚ÄĚ cheat is just the pick-me-up you need in such situations. Using the cheat instantly refills Arthur Morgan‚Äôs stat cores, including health, stamina, and deadeye.

Walking Arsenal

“Greed is American Virtue”

If you want to just go out and cause some chaos, the ‚ÄúGreed is American Virtue‚ÄĚ cheat is for you. Entering the cheat instantly adds the Pump-Action Shotgun, Mauser Pistol, Semi-Automatic Pistol, and Bolt-Action Rifle to your inventory handful of important weapons. Despite, the cheat won‚Äôt trigger until after you‚Äôve finished the Chapter 3 mission ‚ÄúAdvertising, the New American Art.‚ÄĚ Head into the town of Rhodes, grab a newspaper, and the cheat will be enabled.

Insta-Horse 2.0

“Run! Run! Run!”

Sure, your default horse is nice, but what if you want a brand new horse? Enter the cheat code ‚ÄúRun! Run! Run!‚ÄĚ and your wish will be granted. Even better, the horse you spawn is a racehorse tuned for speed. If you want to zip around the map without relying on fast-travel, this is the way to do it.

Never-Ending Lead

“Abundance is the dullest desire”

Running out of an ammo can be a real pain, especially when you‚Äôre in the middle of a tense firefight. Luckily, you need no longer worry when you use the ‚ÄúAbundance is the dullest desire‚ÄĚ cheat. Activating the cheat triggers unlimited ammo for all of your weapons. To earn the cheat, you have to first reach Chapter 2 and pick up a newspaper in Valentine.

Things We Know About Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2’s release is just about here and we’ve put together a list of things you may want to know before jumping into this giant big open world. Here are 10 Things We Know About Red Dead Redemption 2.


Things We Know About Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 follows the Vanderlin gang after a heist goes wrong this forces them to go on the run trying to avoid the lawmen and bounty hunters. With all this going on the gang starts to face some tension and the threat of the game disbanding starts to get more and more real. This isn’t concrete but it’s safe to assume that we get to see the gang fall apart. And maybe even see John Marston break away from the gang or getting captured by the feds.

I think it’s also safe to assume that we’ll see the black border Massacre as well seeing that it has been talked about heavily in Red Dead Redemption 1 and the timing lines up.

Different Angle

When GTA 5 launched on PS4 Rockstar made it so you could play the entire game and first-person. It made the game feel surprisingly different just from changing the camera angle. And in the red dead 2 Rockstar made the same move by making the entire game playable in first-person.

It’s anything like GTA 5, it definitely doesn’t control like a first-person shooter. But it’s still 100% playable. We’ve only got a little bit of footage of it so far, and from that little bit I’ve seen I can tell you that I’m definitely gonna mess around with it for a little bit.

Gang’s Moral

Not only is your gang a huge part of the narrative in Red Dead 2 but it’s also a big part of the gameplay as well. it’s your job to keep gang morale up. Your camp is something that you can invest in as well with time and money. Donating money to the camp will give you the ability to upgrade it later on and you’re also able to go out and chop wood or even go hunting for food to add to the camp supply.

You can, of course, interact with everyone at your camp with the camp morale affecting how they respond to you. Keeping morale up is definitely a good idea because your gang members can give you leads on new money-making opportunities, and they’re also able to join you in the open world as a backup.

Map & Towns

As expected Red Dead 2 takes place in a living breathing world with a map filled with things to do and places to explore. You have frontier towns like Valentine which is your typical looking western as a town. Then you have cities like Saint-Denis, then you have a Bayou town, then, of course, is Blackwater and some other smaller towns mixed in. With wilderness and other biomes all in between, each town city and settlement will also be home to their own cast of townsfolk and exercise activities like poker.

GTA 5’s Los Santos felt very populated in like a real living City and I’m sure Red Dead 2 is going to feel even more lived-in than that.


Your horse is way more than just a way to get around this time. In Red Dead 2 you actually build up a bond with your horse and you have to take care of it. The more you take care of your horse the more you bond with it and bonding can actually unlock additional skills for your horse and overall provide a smoother ride. Brushing your horse, petting it after it gets spooked, and feeding it are all things that you’re gonna have to do to build up that bond.

You’re also able to have more than one horse at a time and store them at stables all over the map. Having different horses is very useful too, seeing that different breeds are better for different scenarios. Therefore, maybe there’s one that’s better during a fight, or maybe one that’s faster, or maybe one that’s just an all-around good boy.


While you will have your horse and guns to take care of in Red Dead Redemption 2, the most important thing to take care of is yourself. Eating and bathing are two things that you’re gonna have to do regularly.

If Arthur’s health or stamina gets low it will affect how he controls making him dizzy and making his vision all blurry. Eating will restore these bars and make Arthur feel better. Keeping yourself clean is also something you’re gonna have to do, if you’re dirty, smelly, or covered in blood people will react to you differently. Walking to a shop covered in blood and dirt doesn’t guarantee you service and you may be kicked out. Your hair also grows as the game progresses so if you like the clean shaven look you’re gonna have to hit the barber every so often to get a trim.


Seeing that Red Dead Redemption 2 is an open world game Rockstar is definitely going to be filling it with extra side activities to keep you busy when you need to take a break from the main story.

There are activities like hunting, robbing stores, you have the option to head into town to acquire a bounty that you can hunt down. Then there are cards to be played, dominoes to be played, you can also play a five-finger fillet. You can go dancing, you can also catch a stage show, and then, of course, there are side missions which are supposedly going to be much more involved this time around and may even be multi-part missions.


Hunting was a pretty important mechanic and Red Dead Redemption. Hunting and collecting pelts from different animals was a great way to make cash and also unlocked outfits, hunting returns and Red Dead 2 but some changes have been made to it.

For one the skinning animation is much more gruesome, it actually shows Arthur skinning it and rolling up his pelt. You now also have to store the pelt and the carcass on your horse and actually get it into town and sell it. Also, it does spoil over time so you don’t want to take too long getting it to town. The carcass you could also sell outright or bring it to a butcher pay them to cut it down for you so you can use it for cooking.

Legendary animals are also making a return which if you don’t remember you had to hunt to craft all the badass outfits in Red Dead Redemption 1. Overall this time hunting is just way more involved.


Weapons have gone through major changes this time around. First off weapons are fully customizable with you being able to engrave them with different designs or maybe wrap the grip in leather.

You’re also able to see every weapon you have actually on Arthur so you’ll see two pistols, two longer weapons like a shotgun and a bow, and any throwable that you’re carrying. Just like Max Payne 3, if you’re using a rifle and you switch to a pistol Arthur will still hold the rifle in one hand while shooting his pistol.

Weapons will also degrade over time, hopefully not as bad as Breath of the wild.¬†So you will have to keep up with your weapons cleaning them and what not to prevent them from jamming. You’re also able to shoot weapons out of enemy’s hands or even outright break them if you want to take a less lethal approach.

Dialogue & Conversation

Rockstar is adding a new dynamic conversation system into Red Dead 2 that actually sounds pretty interesting. Not only are there different dialogue options but what you say and how you say it will affect the outcome of a situation. You’ll also have the ability to talk your way out of certain situations as well.

When you aim at someone with your gun holstered it actually opens up a dialogue menu with different choices to choose from. There are going to be a ton of different random encounters throughout the world that you can run into. Each one having a different reaction depending on how you deal with it.

There is an example online where Arther actually saved someone from a snake attack and a few days later after walking around a town that NPC popped up and noticed Arthur. It turned out that he was the owner of the town’s gun shop and he offered Arthur a free gun of his choice. It’s nice to know that you can interact with the world more than just your gun.

Those are the things you need to know about Red Dead Redemption 2.

Mega Man 11

This isn’t a new Mega Man X title but Megaman 11 looks pretty darn good with its sumptuous visuals. The same platformer shooting action that fans know and love is still here with eight robot masters to fight across eight stages. However, the new double gear system has us more intrigued.

Let Us Know Which Game Are you looking forward to play this Month.?

[poll id=”2″]


Top Action RPGs of 2018

This year is great for action-RPGs and we still have some more coming until December. Action-RPG is a pretty wide area to cast, so keep that in mind there are gonna be a lot of very different games here. Also, we think they are all worth your time. Here are the Top Action RPGs of 2018.

10. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Ubisoft has been talking about how Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is finally a true RPG. Now, the claim that it is now a true RPG is based very much around agency about giving the player choice. Which is great because that’s exactly what Assassin’s Creed is kind of not been that deep into. In the words of the senior producer of the game, they’re trying to keep it very blurry. It means that different answers to different characters can have large effects on what’s going on in the game.

This isn’t groundbreaking by any means but, Assassin’s Creed origins was pretty damn good. Therefore, to see them go further into RPG territory, that’s exactly what we want from this franchise. I can’t wait to play it next month.

9. Vampyr


Vampyr is a game that really looks like it was going to be great on combat. But it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, it’s a little bit closer to Witcher than I expected. However, at the same time, the addition of this sort of warping really did add a layer to it. I liked it a lot and honestly, I thought it’s a good game, I enjoyed the hell out of this. I mean it’s not without its problems is a bit well let’s just say long in the load screens.

But for the most part, it’s a really enjoyable game with a phenomenal atmosphere. When you occupy this world you really feel like you’re part of it. And this is thanks in no small part to just how well they characterize not just the main character but anybody in this game got so much attention to their character.

8. Final Fantasy 15

Top Action RPGs of 2018

It is basically a generation above the console version. It is a superior port in every way and it looks phenomenal. However, this is not the only reason to play it. But, probably the biggest reason to play it is that it’s Final Fantasy 15. And after some argument over whether it is exactly a Final Fantasy game, I think it’s probably the best Final Fantasy game in years. At least in the mainline series, it is.

We haven’t seen that into a mainline game, I’m gonna say even since 10 I did like the sequels to 13. But I’m not gonna call those mainline Final Fantasy games.¬†Final Fantasy 15 manages to put together a story of camaraderie and friendship and really came up with a good open-world concept kind of figuring out a way to make it linear but not linear and has combat systems just want us all to play around in.

7. Victor vran: overkill edition

Victor vran: overkill edition

A revamped version of the 2015 game that really did not get enough attention. It was critically acclaimed but maybe didn’t get the kind of wide notice that it should have gotten. This is kind of an interesting action RPG I mean it kind of melds a few different things. Also, this may be why it didn’t get the kind of attention it should have. However, it melds them really well, it has the more standard action RPG fare as well as somewhat they call reaction based moves.

Even some puzzle elements as well as a classless main character that allows you to tweak them with weapons, items, and various powers. It’s if you’ve got an itch for some Diablo kind of action Victor van we’ll help you scratch it. Therefore, it goes beyond that and it’s really interesting.

6. Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna the golden country

Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna the golden country

As a DLC or an expansion or however you want to put it by all accounts thus far it’s like another game. Therefore, if you like – Xenoblade chronicles – which is really just a phenomenal iteration of the entire Xenoblade series, why wouldn’t you want another story using those conventions. I mean Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s combat is just phenomenal.

It’s such a fun fluid game to play that gives you a lot of control but doesn’t force you down any weird rabbit holes. Also, really has a good enjoyable story with well-developed characters and the series just has a massive history of being great. There’s no good reason not to play this if you’re a fan of any Xeno game.

5. Kingdom Come Deliverance

Kingdom Come Deliverance

A complex take on something that really hasn’t been done enough. Now, we all looked at this like it’s gonna be similar to The Witcher except for without magic and that’s not what it is at all. It is kind of like that on the surface, it is a medieval RPG. However, the thing that they really focused on here was creating a combat system that gave you an immense amount of agency.

And it does that, it does it really well. Therefore, this is an interesting game and I think it’s honestly worth trying. But don’t go in thinking hey it’s basically like every RPG except without the magic.¬†It is its own thing but that’s good we need more games that are their own things.

4. Fallout 76

Fallout 76

I am a little bit skeptical of this game. Making fallout into a basically ongoing live service, if you told me maybe a decade ago that there would be a Fallout MMORPG I would be there in an instant. I mean for all intents and purposes fallout 76 actually sounds really cool. It’s not so much the idea a world post nuclear war that you’re tasked with rebuilding in an ongoing multiplayer situation. This is more the trends in gaming at the moment that worry me.

That being said, if they manage to make that stuff tolerable or do the right thing and don’t include any of it while at 76, honestly, it could be amazing. It could be one of the better games of the next few years if it works.

3. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

This is an HD port of an expanded version of Monster Hunter generations. Monster Hunter Generations is especially for a 3ds game just a massive game, there’s so much to do in it. It does so much in sort of retreading ground in a manner that isn’t actually derivative or bad.

This game is enjoyable it kind of pulls off the original idea of the game perfectly, especially for 2016. Also, in an area where it was approaching, I would say the limitations of the 3ds. If you haven’t played a Monster Hunter game and have a 3D, yes this is definitely the way to go. It’s a phenomenal game and a perfect introduction to the franchise. If you aren’t gonna go for the world anyway.

2. Ni no Kuni II

Ni no Kuni II

This game took the formula from the first Ni no Kuni and used parts of it that worked very well as well as gave it a new combat experience. The new combat experience is now more action-oriented and it works. In my opinion, the second game is actually more enjoyable than the first. Is it as traditional as an RPG? maybe not.

But it combines elements of a traditional JRPG with a dungeon crawler, with a hack n slash, and even has some other combat situations. The skirmishes are actually really enjoyable and weird. However, it’s got so much charm and the story itself is just like shifts into gear right away. I enjoy the hell out of it.

1. Monster Hunter World

Monster Hunter World

This is just a phenomenal, 100% exactly what it should be game. I can’t really explain how much I like the fact that they made some of the modifications to the formula that they did. However, it’s almost seamless on paper it really doesn’t sound much different but it does have a few more Western conventions in it. And they work really well because they weren’t integrated in a way that really interrupts in any way.

You’re now in a massive open world doing your monster hunting. And that’s exactly what it should be. In 2018 there isn’t an excuse for this not to exist. Fortunately, they don’t have to make one, it’s exactly a Monster Hunter, it should be in 2018. That’s really the only good way to put it.

10 Things About Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is about to get released and while at the origin it might look familiar. However, there are so many questions and there are some things that you should definitely know before taking the dive. Therefore, here are 10 Things About Shadow of the Tomb Raider you should know before you buy The Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

10. Story

Shadow of the Tomb Raider picks up two months after the events of the previous game Rise of the Tomb Raider. Lara is hot on Trinity’s heels trying to make their job a living hell sending their plans left and right wherever she can.mayan relics shadow of the tomb raider At this point, Lara is in Mexico on an expedition to uncover a Mayan relic which is somehow related to her father’s research.Dagger-shadow of the tomb raider Furthermore, of course, Trinity shows up, shoots everyone and messes up the whole plan.

And there’s also a clash of ideals with one of the supposed leaders of Trinity and some shit goes down. With all that happening in motion Lara and Jonah set off to try and change the world, it’s really interesting as hell. What else can you expect, there’s a dash of new character building with Lara coming to grips with her obsession.

9. Location

You need to know that the Shadow of the Tomb Raider will feature a new hub in a new location.Shadow of the Tomb Raider new location Also, this one will apparently be the biggest in the series to date. This new area the hidden city of Paititi is divided up into districts and serves as the game’s primary hub.Shadow of the Tomb Raider hiden city of Paitity Furthermore, it is filled with NPCs to talk to, to flesh out the world, merchants to barter with, and trade items with a new barter system.

Also, a slew of quest giver stands that point you in the direction of the games various side activities. Which help us learn about the world, explore, earn new items, and level up Laura and gain new abilities. The previous two Tomb Raider games have been filled with sad almost kind of lifeless little survival villages. Therefore, I’m just curious to see how much was like a vibrant city really shakes things up.

8. Stealth Features

The modern Tomb Raider games have always had sizable stealth element but there’s definitely more importance on it in this game. However, previous games had you crawling through bushes and sneaking up on guys through ledges and trees. Shadow of the Tomb Raider adds new options like covering yourself in mud to avoid detection.shadow-of-the-tomb-raider poster As well as the ability to like creep along vine and brush covered walls and surfaces to sneak past enemies right in plain sight.shadow-of-the-tomb-raider Screenshot Furthermore, closing the gap for more stealth kills.

It’s like the predator and it seems like a pretty badass addition to the game. Along with that encounters are set to just give you a bit more freedom. The game clearly gives you a bit more choice in the options to run and hide after you’re spotted. I don’t know exactly how they change that from previous games. Until we get our hands on it, we’ll have to wait and watch.

7. Different Difficulty levels & Immersions

We got more options for immersion some people want a fun blockbuster video game just want to be along for the ride. Others to want a really immersive experience and thankfully you can seemingly get both in the Shadow the Tomb Raider. For starters, there are options to remove things like glowing hints and such other options.Shadow of the Tomb Raider difficulty levels and options As well as removing environmental context clues for traversal and exploration.

This game like the previous games can seem pretty easy from the outset. However, it gives you the ability to take away some of those options. An interesting example in the previous games where there was the white mark on the wall.Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot Where you could DoubleTap the jump button to climb it, but by turning on these specific difficulty options you can get rid of them.Shadow of the Tomb Raider difficulty levels and options 02 It also allows for a more immersive exploration experience where you’ve got to really think outside the box.

what I really like and I think it’s cool is that you can choose an immersive language option. This allows NPCs to speak in their native languages with subtitles, which is a nice touch. If you’re into leaving out that option I guess kind of like Lara Croft the ability to do that is really cool.

6. Accessibility

As far as Accessibility options go for this game there’s actually quite a few and it’s pretty impressive. For starters, the difficulty settings have been removed so instead of just having an Easy, Normal, and¬†Hard difficulty scheme you can actually change the difficulty of combat, puzzles, and exploration traversal independently.Shadow of the Tomb Raider Difficulty levels Therefore, if you have a hard time with combat but still want a really challenging brain-busting puzzle and traversal experience you can modify the experience to your needs. I think that’s pretty interesting just as someone who studies and talks about games all the time I’m curious to see how this difficulty system is actually gonna work out mechanically.

Furthermore, for possibly disabled folks who use different types of controllers, you can replace the standard button mashy QuickTime events with the option to just hold a button down. Also, there’s also a slew of language and subtitle options as well. It’s really nice to see the developers make an effort to add more choices to open it up to more players.

5. Game Plus Mode

It’s worth knowing that once you finish the story, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will offer the option to go back in with a new Game Plus Mode. This option is something that a lot of us are waiting eagerly to play. Playing with the new game plus mode will obviously start you back at the beginning. But with all of your acquired skills, weapons upgrades, gear, and outfits.

Also, it’ll unlock three new paths that you can unlock based on your play style. It could be stealth, combat, or traversal focused.stealth, combat, or traversal focused. The new paths will unlock these new rewards that complement that specific playstyle as well as unique weapons and outfits. This should work out well with the larger environments and more challenge tombs. That was totally our favorite things from the previous games and honestly anything that adds up to replayability we are in for it.

4. Lara’s Negative Role

With things having an apocalyptic vibe to the game, Lara is said to take a darker tone in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. According to statements made at the Tribeca Film Festival by the game’s lead writer Jill Murray. Lara will be “fighting not to become the enemy she hates and in many cases, we may see the enemy in herself. She’s going to make a lot of mistakes and deal with a lot of complicities. depending on your perspective, a hero can also be a threat, and in this game, Lara has to decide which path she’s going to choose.”

This tone carries over to the gameplay where Lara will viciously take down her enemies in gruesome and incredibly violent ways. What we’ve noticed is the gameplay previews is that she now has a giant nasty combat knife.Shadow of the Tomb Raider poster And she has no problem just literally placing it into a guy’s head. The previous two games did have moments of real gore and brutality, but Lara feels like a vicious killer now thanks to new animations. Whether or not the story will actually directly acknowledge some of that we’re gonna have to wait and see. However, it sounds like it’s good so far.

3. Graphics

let’s talk about the NVIDIA RTX stuff. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was one of the first games used to showcase the newest generation of Nvidia’s graphics technology with the RTX line of cards. As such the game is one of a handful to support real-time ray tracing out of the gate. Also, for layman’s terms that basically takes the advantage of the newest lighting and shadows technology for the most realistic out there.

Furthermore, the game is also on the short list of games to take advantage of Nvidia’s deep learning super sampling technology. It is said to give image quality enrichment by using the Turing sensor cores to better smooth out sharp edges and elements to generally produce a better image. The last Tomb Raider games have been pretty great demonstrations of new tech from upgraded consoles. The hair effects and other details can be noticed. Therefore, we’ll see if the Shadow of the Tomb Raider can keep that trend up. It seems like if you’re playing on PC you have a lot to look forward to.

2. DLC and Season Pass

We have to grind down some future plans and some DLC content. There is a season pass and it will include seven new pieces of content called paths. Square Enix said that each new path adds new narrative, mission, challenge tombs, weapons, outfits, skills. And one of each being exclusive to the season pass.

Now, all that is well and good. but the real interesting bit comes in the reveal that some of the new challenge tombs will feature co-op play. This is a first for the series, I honestly can’t really imagine what that’ll be like. However, we’ll have to just wait and see. Generally, the baba yaga DLC from the last game with solid stuff is worth revisiting.Baba yaga DLC Therefore, I really hope they can keep that trend up here.

1. Release Date and Platforms

The Shadow of the Tomb Raider is dropping September 14th, 2018 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Nintendo Switch just isn’t in the cards for this one. Therefore, if you were leaning towards that, it is time to figure out a different choice. Because they’ve said it ain’t happening, and as for how the PC version goes they

 Recommended System Requirements
  • OS:¬†Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU:¬†Intel Core i7-4770K 3.4GHz¬†or¬†AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz
  • RAM:¬†16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM:¬†6GB Video Memory
  • GPU:¬†Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB
  • DX:¬†DirectX 12
  • HD:¬†40GB

And here are the system requirements for the game. Obviously like we mentioned earlier you get added benefits with the newer RTX cards.

Shadow of The Tomb Raider System Requirements

The official requirements are quite similar to some of the predicted¬†specifications. Now, we have the official Shadow of The Tomb Raider system requirements. Over the past few weeks, we have seen some interesting system performance results for Shadow of The Tomb Raider on the new Nvidia RTX 20 Series. But we now we have the official Shadow of The Tomb Raider System Requirements. So let’s see how well does Shadow Of The Tomb Raider perform on your PC.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS:¬†Windows 7 64 bit
  • CPU:¬†Intel Core i3-3220 or AMD FX 4300
  • RAM:¬†8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM:¬†2GB Video Memory
  • GPU:¬†GeForce GTX 660 / GeForce GTX 1050 or Radeon HD 7770 / Radeon R9 380
  • DX:¬†DirectX 11
  • HD:¬†40GB

Besides that, the minimum system requirements are quite comparable to the last 2016 part of Tomb Raider as well. Therefore, in short, “if your PC can run the previous Tomb Raider game then you will be able to play Shadow of The Tomb Raider” because you will meet the official minimum system requirements as well. That is a good news.

Recommended System Requirements

  • OS:¬†Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU:¬†Intel Core i7-4770K 3.4GHz¬†or¬†AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz
  • RAM:¬†16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM:¬†6GB Video Memory
  • GPU:¬†Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB
  • DX:¬†DirectX 12
  • HD:¬†40GB

So these are the Shadow of The Tomb Raider recommended system requirements. It is a step ahead from the previous Rise of the Tomb Raider specifications, which released at the beginning of 2016. So if your PC could easily play Shadow of the tomb raider’s forerunner on high graphics settings then you will likely have little problem playing this year’s Shadow of The Tomb Raider game at 1080p on high. The significant difference in requirements here is the recommended RAM. You are going to need a 16GB system memory. However, we all know that during the last couple of years system memory has jumped up in price by quite a margin. Therefore, this might be a difficult one for a lot of people, hoping to get a comfortable frame rate at 1080p on high graphics settings.

Looking over these specs and considering performance from the previous title and we predicted what the requirements would be for Shadow or the Tomb Raider on Ultra settings. Therefore, we showed you the Ultra System Requirements as well.

Ultra System Requirements

  • OS:¬†Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU:¬†Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz¬†or¬†AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4GHz
  • RAM:¬†16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM:¬†6GB Video Memory
  • GPU:¬†Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 8GB or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB
  • DX:¬†DirectX 12
  • HD:¬†40GB

Those Ultra requirements for Shadow of the Tomb Raider can get your PC performing very conveniently with most of the settings turned up to max at 1080p. This set of hardware is also a good specification for resolution of 1440p on Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay. Therefore, those people who like to play on a larger monitor size at high or above graphics settings, they will probably find the Ultra specification a very nice graphical experience.

Game Engine

Shadow of Tomb Raider will run on the Dawn Engine. It is Eidos Montreal‘s Tomb Raider graphics engine. They also use it for their Deus Ex games.

Story and Gameplay

Shadow of The Tomb Raider is the 12th Tomb Raider chapter with¬†action and adventure, 3rd person game filled with puzzles. The story starts just two months after The¬†Rise of the Tomb Raider’s end. Lara will head to the South American city of Paititi to try and stop a Mayan apocalypse that she could be the cause of.

The game is set to release on September 14th on PC, Xbox One and PS4. However, Eidos Montreal began development of Shadow of The Tomb Raider back in 2015.

Upcoming games in September 2018

I hope you’re ready for some of the bigger titles of the year. Here are the 10 Upcoming games in September 2018 that you need to play.

10. Insurgency Sandstorm

Insurgency Sandstorm

The previous insurgency was an indie game that ended up breaking out to be quite a hit. Sandstorm is a continuation of the concepts, it’s a tactical FPS which focus mainly on close quarters type gameplay. It does have multiplayer, it is oriented more around objectives, and co-op, but there is small-scale head to head in an either mode single or multiplayer.

A lot of it focuses on ammunition management. And the kind of close quarters gameplay it brings to the table it does look quite good keeping in mind its indie roots. Furthermore, it is coming to PC on September 18th. It is probably going to be 2019 before we see it on consoles, but it looks like good stuff.

9. Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age

Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age

This is one cool looking Dragon Quest. It’s a mix of different styles of art that manages not to look like a mix of a couple of different styles of art. And that’s kind of how you can explain most of the game. Not necessarily by its graphics, but you get this huge world that you’re able to explore and engage in traditional battles which are fairly simple looking.

However, for me, that’s kind of a pro as opposed to a con and if it plays the way it looks which is a really great visual concoction of new and old cartoons, real fantasy and anime. I have heard about it being a little bit too traditional and that it doesn’t really advance the genre in any way, like in the way octopus traveler does. However, I wonder if that really matters, of course, we’ll have to play it before we know.

Besides that, on PC and PS4 the Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age is coming on September 4th

8. NBA 2k19 20th Anniversary Edition

NBA 2k19 20th Anniversary Edition

I remember way back when the NBA 2k franchise launched. And so do the developers because they’ve made a specific version to celebrate 20 years of quote-unquote redefining what sports gaming can be. They call their game best-in-class in graphics and gameplay.

I’m inclined to agree, this is really a franchise that has taken its time, developed very well and looks absolutely amazing at this point. However, depending on your taste there’s a lot of modes for you to play with. I personally like playing basketball games on such games, but for those who do like the campaigns, there are stories that you play through.

They’ve got a relatively compelling looking one for this game. But, I’m basically like it because it is a great series. NBA 2k19 always implements good gameplay mechanical updates and although usually, they’re iterative, at this point they’ve proven that they do a good job with it.¬† NBA 2k19 20th Anniversary Edition is coming to ps4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo switch on September 7.

7. V-Rally 4

V-Rally 4

V-Rally 4 is a game that brings the series back. It debuted way back in the PlayStation era, the first time around EA published it in the US. They called it a need for speed V-Rally because rally racing wasn’t that popular in the US at that time. Ahead with two sequels, the last of which happened in 2002. V-Rally was a game that appeared on a few platforms including the Machine that was too good for this earth the Dreamcast. And it’s been a while since I’ve even thought about these games.

V-Rally 4’s footage doesn’t look like a throwback, but instead an incredibly good-looking rally game. Despite the fact we’ve actually seen some interest in these types of games recently still isn’t a crowded market. Therefore, honestly, I’m pretty excited about this, there need to be more games like this. V-Rally 4 is coming to ps4 and Xbox one September 7th and PC on the 25th.

6. Valkyria Chronicles 4

Valkyria Chronicles 4

It’s good there back to the actual strategy oriented gameplay of the mainline Valkyria Chronicles games. And they’re clearly going for a much more quote-unquote real feeling with the characters. But I mean if they’re paying any attention to how to do characters at all, that means they’ve learned a lesson from Valkyria revolution.

Therefore,¬† I’m looking forward to this, I’m really excited that they’ve gone back to their strategy roots and I’ll be picking it up when it comes to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo switch on September 25th.

5. NHL 19

NHL 19

NHL 19 is gonna hit this month. And a lot has been done to the skating physics. This is the main thing I’ve seen anybody commenting on the games brought up. NHL isn’t a series that has been particularly innovative for quite a while, so any changes in it are kind of big.

Furthermore, they are adding this mode that’s kind of a lifestyle multiplayer free-for-all mode. It may be really cool, but I’ve seen the word lifestyle used to describe it a lot and I’m not so sure how that fits in with a hockey video game. I’m more interested to find how the skating has changed and want to see all of the updates to that. It does look amazing and NHL 19 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One September 14th.

4. FIFA 19


I just want to give you a heads up, it has a demo hitting on the 13th sep. So if you’re interested in checking out a lot of the changes for yourself that is an option. And I will be taking them up on that. However, a lot of the aesthetic changes are made. Specifically, cinematics for teams, fans, and even when you transfer a player.

On top of that, the licensing has been greatly expanded, there are new stadiums, there are three different playable characters for the journey. Besides that, it overall looks like a good addition and a good development for FIFA. FIFA 19 is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on the September 28th. And the demo is coming on the 13th.

3. Life is Strange 2 Episode 1

Life if Strange 2 Episode 1

If you want to know my opinion on life is strange, I have a positive one. Life is strange was really interesting, it was about apocalyptic phenomena, it was about traveling through time, and it was also about the teenage experience. Furthermore, the setup is that something supernatural ends up killing a cop and a pair of young brothers one 9 and other 16 ends up on a road trip.

Starting in Seattle the first episode is of course called Seattle and it’s hitting on September 27th on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

2. Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

The new Tomb Raider reboot is going well. Apparently, they’ve done a lot with the theme of descent sort of a metaphorical downturn. But also perhaps an embracing of the game in some of the¬†maybe less savory ideas that it depends on. I don’t know it’s sounding a little bit more brutal to me which I like. And I’ve really enjoyed the rebooted Tomb Raider series so far so I’m pretty much here no matter what.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 14.

1. Spider-Man

Marvel's Spider-Man

Of course, at number one¬†is Spider-man. Spider-man has been one of the coolest looking games since they’ve announced it. Just seeing all of the actual well done looking web-slinging. But moreover, all of the combat we’ve seen leading up to, it is just something that makes this game look special. Insomniac games experience with sunset overdrive definitely shows.

And there’s not a lot to say about this game that you can’t just infer from the visuals and there’s a lot to look forward to. I’m really looking forward to it. Spider-man is coming to the PS4 on September 7th and I’m just totally sold on this game.

Top 10 Xbox One Games Under 20 Dollars

When games come out they’re expensive. And sometimes because of that, we miss them. But the monetary entry point for these PlayStation 4 games has gone way down. So, here are the Top 10 Xbox One Games Under 20 Dollars.

New games come out all the time and they also cost a lot of money. Therefore, sometimes its hard to buy all of them, but the price often fluctuates and goes down. So, here is the list of Xbox One that is dirt cheap.

10. Gears Of War Ultimate Edition

Gears Of War Ultimate Edition

This is the best version of the Gears of War series that started the cover shooter craze. And let us just say probably the best example for those games. Third person cover shooters, none of them stood up to the test of time as well as the Gear s of War franchise. Gears of War the original one is probably the one you would enjoy the most and a version of it with overhaul graphics is most welcome too. You can get for $13.90 on Amazon.

9. Final Fantasy 15

Final Fantasy 15

The developers basically took everything we knew about the franchise and made us think they threw it out the window. But they didn’t do it, however, the combat did get a very real time overhaul, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that this is not final fantasy. It did get bloody at times, but this game puts together a friendly relationship between the main characters. And I haven’t seen that in many games.

It has so much of the stuff that it would seem like a menial boring task, however, it is actually enjoyable and kind of envolving in Final Fantasy 15. Furthermore, I like the combat.
I believe that there are some people who disqualify this game from being a traditional Final Fantasy game. But, in every way other than the combat and you drive around the world, It is pretty much a Final Fantasy game. You can buy it for $17.99 on Amazon.

8. Dishonored 2

Dishonored 2

I would say this one is an improvement from the first part. It is not like Dishonored 1 is not good enough, but the second part is a big jump. Ultimately, it is not that different. There are a few new ideas and they are definitely very good, but it is a better version than the first part.

We have 2 characters in this game, instead of only one and they have different takes on the same powers. There is somewhat a meaningful difference between their powers, but the ones with the different take on the same powers.

I don’t understand why people were not jumping up and down about this game. It is so good, the level design is just phenomenal, big, and open, but still Dishonored type oriented gameplay. And still has a kind of¬†disconnect¬†between using your powers and getting a stealth rating. But they¬†have improved that a little¬†bit. You can buy it on Amazon for $18.94.

7. Ori and The Blind Forest: Definitive Edition

Top 10 Xbox One Games Under 20 Dollars

Ori and The Blind Forest is an absolutely beautiful game and it is one of the better platformers out there. Especially with the recent generation games, honestly, I can put it up basically with any game. Also, this game is something that deserves more attention than it actually got, because it is a great game.

It wasn’t actually an expensive game, but to get this game at $15.18 is totally worth it. This price is on Amazon not on the Xbox marketplace.

6. Sunset Overdrive

Sunset Overdrive

I think this game is the precursor to Spider-man that is coming out on PS4. Insomniac Games certainly a very good developer came out with kind of a superhero game with those intensely cool graphics. I love the aesthetic of this game and the gameplay is very similar to Spider-man and Tony Hawk.

It is different and $19.99 on the Xbox marketplace, it is definitely going to us busy for a quite while.


Also Check Out: Top 10 PS4 Games Under 20 Dollars

5. Quantum Break: A Time-Bending Adventure

Quantum Break: A Time-Bending Adventure

Honestly, this game is the weirdest thing you will ever see, but once you get used to it, it is a pretty intuitive game. The Mechanics and display are definitely original. It takes the idea of time bending into consideration and incorporates it heavily into both the story and mechanics of the game.

This is a game Microsoft leaned on hard and they were right to do so. Because it is an interesting and original game. Furthermore, it is the best selling IP that Microsoft had with the Xbox One. Therefore, they left the price quite high in the Xbox marketplace. So, you can get it on Amazon for $18.

4. Halo 5 Guardians

Halo 5 Guardians

Halo 5 is the premier Xbox franchise and getting the most recent one is going to be the first person shooter game. This game may not be the best Halo game yet. But, it is a great game and also an awesome one too. The developers did such a great job with graphics in Halo 5 Guardians.

I personally like the multiplayer mode, it could be compared to Fortnite or PUBG as far as handling itself goes. Hopefully, they continue to handle it in this similar way other than just rip off whats going on at the time. Halo multiplayer it just awesome. And you can buy it for $19.99 on Pretty much all the places.

3. Batman Arkham Knight

Batman Arkham Knight

This the best Batman game yet and it is the best one we could hope for if we want a Batman game. It is hard to imagine a better Batman game than this. And narratively speaking, it is a little less good than the previous one. As far as gameplay goes this one is the best ever yet. It goes on sale often, you can get it for $18.11 on Amazon and $19.99 on Xbox marketplace.

2. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

If you remember the PS4 version of this list. The Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is on that list also. Because this is really one of the masterpieces of our time and Hideo Kojima’s masterwork as far as elevating the medium. This game is my favorite¬†from the Metal Gear series and it is a pretty big game. The developers created such a detailed version of every task that you do in Metal Gear Solid and opened up the possibilities significantly. You can buy it on Amazon for $11.04.

1. Cuphead


It is not as if the developers of this game started it as an expensive one. However, it is a game that is worth your money, now or at the price when it was launched. Cuphead is exactly what it should be in every way it should be.

For those who don’t know, it is a side-scroller and shooter/bullet hell, obviously with very old school graphics. Graphics that are animated in a manner that is reminiscent of a cartoon from the end of the 19th century. This game is phenomenal and you can buy it for $19.99 in the Xbox marketplace.

There you have it guys, this is our list of the Top 10 Xbox One Games Under 20 Dollars.

Spider-Man PS4 – 10 Things We Know

Spider-man is probably one of the most anticipated games of 2018. Probably right up there with Red Dead Redemption 2, but unlike right there redemption 2 spider-man is only a few weeks away. So here are 10 things we know about Spider-Man PS4.

10. Spider-Man’s City

One of the most iconic and important parts of any Spider-Man story is the city of New York. Whether it be one of the many movies or comics, how the city interacts with spider-man and vice versa has always been present. Because New York is right alongside Mary Jane and Aunt May as one of the most important supporting characters.

Insomniac made sure to make New York something special in this game. Citizens will interact with Spider-man in different ways whether it be throwing him a high-five, calling out his name, or even stopping him to take a selfie. The fast travel system is also ‘super-New York’ with spider-man actually taken the subway with other New Yorkers. Insomniac-games is also making sure to include landmarks from the real New York and the Marvel New York. So you get things that Greater City Music Hall, Avengers tower, and where Doctor Strange hangs out on Bleecker Street.

This might not be as big of a deal to most of the people, but seeing that some of us are New Yorkers this is something that just hits us pretty hard.

9. Spider-man suits

It wouldn’t be a spider-man game without multiple suits to choose from and unlock them. Rumor has it, there are gonna be near about 20 suits available in the game. With more suits coming later on in DLC. Different suits will also have different stats as well, so they aren’t just cosmetic.

There are some really good suits they’re gonna be popping up. There’s the noir suit, the infinity war suit,the infinity war suit the homemade suit from the MCU, Scarlet Spider, Spider Punk, and 2099 just name a few.spider_man_ps4

There is also a brand new suit that was designed specifically for the game and it’s called the velocity suit.Velocity suit And it kind of reminds me of spider-man stealth suit that he wore during the big time arc in the comics.

Suits are actually something you have to craft in the game. We don’t have many details on how exactly that works. But suits will also be shown in cutscenes. This might not seem like a big deal, but when games don’t do this it drives us absolutely insane. So compliments to insomniac for actually thinking of something so small.

8. Spider-man Hostile Take-over

The release of Spider-man is a lot closer than you think. But if you think you can’t wait until September 7th to the release, then you’re in luck. On August 21st it was a tie-in novel released titled Spider-man hostile takeover. It takes place before the game and starts to build up the world a bit.

We learned that Mary Jane already works for the Daily Bugle. Also, that she’s have been obsessed with covering all of kingpins madness.Mary Jane at KingPin's hideout Which probably sets you up playing as Mary Jane and what seems to be stealth parts. I guess you are sneaking around a kingpin hideout or something like that.

It also touches upon spider-man and kingpins relationship, it seems they’ve had a good amount of run-ins in the past.Spider-man and Kingpin (Wilson Grant Fisk) Therefore, Fisk really doesn’t like Spidey and I’m sure we’ll hear all about it in the game. The book also references other heroes existing in the universe such as Daredevil, Doctor Strange, and the Avengers. Everything I’ve seen so far about this book actually seems really cool. And it seems like it’s definitely worth checking out.

7. Photo Mode

It seems that really good photo modes are becoming a trend with PlayStation 4. Photo modes have obviously been around for quite some time, but when a ps4 exclusive game launches, you can see Twitter feed getting flooded with amazing screenshots. It was Uncharted 4 that really kicked off the trend of big ps4 exclusives getting really good fleshed out photo modes. Horizon zero dawn and Shadow the of Colossus are other ones that just had so many beautiful screenshots come out of it.

It was mostly because of how good both games look, almost any screenshot is gonna look great. And then we just recently had God of War that also had a great photo mode. With really great screenshots coming out of that as well.

Insomniac has already come out and stated that Spider-man is going to have a photo mode. And I think they have joked about it has to be better than the God of wars photo mode.Spider-man photo mode 02 I can already imagine some of the really cool mid-web-swing screenshots we’re gonna get.Spider-man photo mode Everything we’ve seen of the game looks great, now, imagine that with a cool photo mode filter launched on top of it and you know it’s gonna look even cooler.

6. Insomniac Avoided Another Origin Story

The thing Insomniac really wanted to avoid with this game was giving us another Spiderman origin story. We all know what happens here, Peter Parker was bit by the spider when he was 15.Peter and Mary Now, when you’re playing as Peter, he’s a 23-year-old college graduate. So he’s been spider-man for eight years already, therefore, he knows what he’s doing.

We are still receiving the Spider-man and Peter Parker that we all know and love. But insomniac is going to be launching his early 20s. So not only is Peter running around and dealing with Spider-man shit, but he’s also dealing with Peter Parker stuff. Working to keep a job, pay bills, and rent, balancing friends and family while also protecting them. This isn’t anything new for spider-man.

Spider-man Friends and Family

If you’ve read the comics this is all stuff you’ve seen before. Spider-man doesn’t come off as some high-class superhero, rather, he comes off as an average superhero. That is the part of what makes Spider-man so relatable, he is struggling with being an adult.

Besides that, while we are getting an experienced spider-man, the one that knows what he is doing, and knows what he is capable of. We aren’t really getting a very experienced Peter Parker, as he struggles with the day-to-day adult life. Therefore, this isn’t totally a Spider-man story, rather, it is just as much a Peter Parker story.

5. No Microtransactions in The Game

Insomniac has come out and said that Spider-man will not feature any form of microtransactions, seeing that so many games have them nowadays. And seeing how the majority of the gaming community feels about them, it’s nice to know that they aren’t gonna exist here at all.

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t gonna be DLC. So far insomniac has announced two different sets of DLC. The city that never sleeps pack, and The heist pack. The heist pack revolves around the Black-cat and a heist, but that’s all we have so far on that. We don’t know if they’re gonna take the Arkham approach and let us play as Black-cat or not.

Each DLC pack will have new story missions, new villains, and new suits. And noticing that spider-man have so many different villains and cramming a ton into the game isn’t the smartest idea. I think DLC packs is an excellent idea. Because it gives a little bit more breathing room for new villains. Especially if they’re gonna introduce new characters for somebody to fight alongside and against. Furthermore, The fact that all of these DLC packs have different suits attached to them as well is really cool. Because Spider-man has so many awesome suits and we just want to wear all of them.

4. Villains

Just like most comic book video games, Spider-man will feature a ton of different villains. There have been a few that we’ve actually been able to get a look at. And there are others that Insomniac has just stated is in the game but haven’t shown off yet.

First, we have Mr. negative who said to be the big baddie like the main villain of the game.Mr.-Negative-in-Marvels-Spider-Man-by-Insomniac-Games But I don’t know how accurate that is seeing that the game also features Wilson FiskKingpin and some members of the sinister six. I can totally see like an Arkham origins type fake-out although not as elaborate as one villain pretending to be another, but more of a simple fake out. You know you get your expected Spider-man villains making an appearance like shocker, rhino, vulture, electro, and black cat.

But then there’s also the Taskmaster who I never once thought would pop up in a game because taskmaster is just a weird character that I think doesn’t fit in anywhere besides like the Lego games. But I am a big fan of him and I’m hyped to see him making an appearance here. It’s been confirmed that he is going to pop up in a set of side quests.

Norman OsbourneNorman Osbourne has also confirmed to make an appearance, but he might not be popping up as the Green Goblin. This time he is the mayor of New York and it seems like that might just be it. Although I can totally see something happening where he ends up being the big mastermind behind everything. There is also that mystery villain who comes at the end of one of the trailers. I really hope he is Doctor Octopus and if that’s the case I’m gonna lose my mind.

3. Combat

Let’s talk about the combat. We’ve been getting pretty good looks at the combat since the game was announced. And insomniac is giving you a few different options when it comes to combat. There’s a bunch of melee moves, gadgets, and different web powers are able to chain together.

Combat revolves around combo hits and using the environment like throwing buckets or pulling down shells. You can flip, dodge, and jump because that’s important when there are guns.Combo move We can also do special finisher hits if you get your combo high enough. Pushing and pulling with your web is awesome too because you can trigger aerial combos more often. And mixing in gadgets will also come into play.

We can also take the stealthy approach and take out a few enemies, before jumping in fists swinging. Different suits also have different abilities as well. Spider Punk suit is able to activate an AOE attack,Spider-man spider punk suit where the sound waves from his guitar push the enemy back. The Ben Riley suit actually creates Holograms of spider-man that will confuse enemies.Ben Riley suit Suit mods and gadgets are actually crafted by the player via a minigame and you use the in-game currency to purchase those mods and upgrades. I think this combat looks super smooth and very Spider-Man-like.

2. Web Swing

This is a Spider-Man game, after all, so we had to talk about the web-swinging, and thankfully it’s very solid. Insomniac has spoken lots about it since the questions everyone has been asking. And they’ve actually clearly put the work in. It does feel awesome, but it’s not quite the complete physics-based simulation, what the classic spider-man 2 game had. But it’s really damn close, your webs need to have buildings nearby to attach or else you can’t swing.

It’s completely momentum based, meaning letting go at the bottom of a swing propels you forward faster. We can also do aerial tricks, this might sound like something meaningless, but I really enjoy it. The more I feel like Spider-man the better, what also helps is the web zip ability that’s similar to previous games, where you can just zip a web on an object and pull yourself forward. But now it’s a bit more contextual and going through certain things is often different and will speed you up.

We think it as, the local motion from insomniacs other game (sunset overdrive), but imagine a layer of Spider-man swinging you want to be a lump on top of that game system. Also, you will have upgradeable abilities that will tie into swinging abilities, like apparently charged jumps as well.
