Events Red Dead Redemption 2 occur in the Wild West. The new game is a prequel to the first part: in the trailers, the authors showed a young Dutchman, and fans of the original on one of the shots noticed Bill Williamson.
As in Red Dead Redemption, in the second part of the players will visit a lot of different locations. We have already shown thick forests, snow-covered mountains, dirty swamps, teeming with crocodiles, and lively cities. Move around the world, which will certainly be monstrously huge, it will be possible on a horse. In addition, according to rumors, players will be able to use trolleys, carts, carts and diesel locomotives as vehicles.See More: Scientists use smartphone to diagnose heart disease
In general, if you believe the developers, the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 turns out to be truly alive. In details about how the local open world works, in his impressions of the gameplay Denis Mayorov told.See More: GTA 5 is the most successful title in the US
Time of the game – 1899 year. Arthur Morgan, one of the members of the gang Datca van der Linde, along with other Dutch henchmen, is forced into running after an unsuccessful bank robbery. The heroes will be hiding not only from federal agents who want to get to the members of every gang remaining in the Wild West, but also from bounty hunters who pursue a similar goal.
In the gang itself, Van der Linde also has enough problems – it is torn apart by contradictions, and Morgan cannot decide what is more important for him: his own ideals or loyalty to the people who brought him up.See More: The best smartphones of 2017: you can take, without hesitation
The developers told about all this after the release of the third trailer, which, among other things, confirmed that in the second part of Red Dead Redemption there is a place for the young John Marston, the hero of the original.

Despite the fact that the plot of Red Dead Redemption 2 will revolve around the gang of Van der Linde, which consisted of John Marston, the hero of the sequel will not be him. We will play in the second part for another member of the gang – the same Arthur Morgan, about the past of whom little is known.
According to the authors, the Dutchman took Arthur into the gang when he was still a child. For many years, Morgan rose to the point that, in fact, became the right hand of Van der Linde. The main character no doubt trusts his leader and is ready for him for any actions.
And without trailers, it’s clear what to expect from Red Dead Redemption 2, – third-person action in a huge open world. True, thanks to the setting in the details of the sequel gameplay, of course, will be different from the same GTA 5.
In the second video of RDR 2, developers showed hunting for wild animals with a bow, using a lasso and shooting with two hands. In addition, the game will still be implemented mechanics robberies, but adjusted for the Wild West, so you can expect spectacular missions with firing of revolvers in all directions and chases on horseback.
In addition, the hero will be able to mine gold, fish, raise livestock, gather herbs and craft something from them, as well as demand money from the characters in exchange for their lives.
In the gameplay video, released in August, Rockstar noted that she still relies on the open world, but creates it not so much as deep as deep, it fills the mechanic with details and mass. Some of them will be tied to the interaction with the gang, which in Red Dead Redemption 2 will constantly move from place to place, break up temporary camps, commit crimes and move on.
The camp is one of the most important moments in the game, something like a small town in which there will always be people, Arthur’s colleagues in robbery and robbery. Speech about the registered characters with whom you can talk, discuss the affairs of the gang. Characters who can be helped under certain conditions.
And not always when solving their own or others’ problems to shoot – in Red Dead Redemption 2 there will be much more ways to interact with the outside world. Strangers found in the world of RDR2, for example, can be intimidated or simply ignored. Even to greet a stranger will be useful: who knows who he is and what will turn your friendliness in the end.
During his adventures, Arthur Morgan will witness dozens of random events and characters – this can be a robbery of a stagecoach, and a poor fellow, hooked his hands over a cliff. To get involved, to ignore, to help, to kill, to talk – all this is just your choice.
In shooting and hand-to-hand fighting, it seems that little has changed compared to previous Rockstar games – except that the studio is now much more serious about the characteristics of the weapon. Nowhere has the time slowed down, during which you can mark enemies and then instantly kill them all.
The role of horses has become more important. They will be able to transport carcasses of dead animals, additional weapons and supplies. Finding a suitable horse for you is still a separate concern. Yes, and other classes in Red Dead Redemption 2 is complete – take at least fishing and hunting, thanks to which the main character will be able to provide his camp with food.
In the second gameplay trailer Rockstar showed a lot of activities that the main character can do. You can rob banks, shops and trains, get drunk in bars and dance in a gang camp, participate in duels and help the homeless. In general, when developers say they want to make the most vibrant open world, they do not seem to be joking.
In Red Dead Redemption 2 there will definitely be an online mode – it was confirmed by Rockstar itself. It is called Red Dead Online, will be released in November 2018, after the release of the game.
The world and gameplay in Red Dead Online will be transferred from the single-player mode, complementing it with new multiplayer features. The developers promise that they will take all the best from GTA Online and take it to a new level. Moreover, the online Red Dead, according to them, will be much slower and more measured – in this way Rockstar hopes to attract at least a part of the audience that does not overlap with the GTA Online audience.
Also, according to rumors, in the sequel there will be a place for the Battle Royale modes, like in Fortnite and PUBG, Revive and Survive (you need to raise opponents for a while) and Money Grab (carry bags of money to the base)
Date is settled
First, Red Dead Redemption 2 would be released this spring, but then the release was postponed to fall. As a result, the game will be released on October 26 on PS4 and Xbox One.
About PC developers do not yet speak, and make some assumptions in this regard is quite difficult. If the key parts of the GTA always came out on computers sooner or later, then the first Red Dead Redemption can still be played only on consoles, including the Xbox One and PS4 – thanks to backward compatibility and the PS Now service, respectively.
