How do you start a new game in Red Dead Redemption 2? Just like Grand Theft Auto V, the game doesn't have a traditional main menu -- you just press X and you're booted into the single player story, where it carries on from your last save. But what if you want to start a new game? Well, there is a 'new game' option, you just have to flick through a couple of menus to find it.

How to start a new game in Red Dead Redemption 2

To start a new game in Red Dead Redemption 2, you need to head into the pause menu by pressing the options button. Once you're in there, scroll down to 'Story' and hit X. Here you'll find 'New Game'. Selecting this prompts the game to ask whether you want to start a new game, and all you have to do is confirm.

You can keep manual saves from different campaigns, but be warned: autosaves save over other autosaves, even if they're from a different campaign. Before starting a new game, it's a good idea to manually save first, just in case you ever want to go back.
