Now let’s have our look at Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 and see what it has to offer the fans. Hopefully, the information will help us get through before the game’s actual release date.
Overview Of The Game
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an action-adventure set at the old western world. The game is produced by Rockstar Games which happens to be the prequel of the first Red Dead Redemption. It is identical with the rendering properties of GTA-V and uses RAGE engine. New leads say that there are significant upgrades in its rendering properties that will ensure players to get a satisfying in-game visual and gameplay. Players take up the persona of Arthur Morgan in this third-person perspective game, which is a member of the Linde gang.
As we all know, the first Red Dead Redemption has a well-received vast open world for players to roam around. These areas have a diverse influence coming from the western culture. Its prairies, mountains, and towns are portraying the beauty of the old Wild West setting.
The shooting system of the game is an upgrade of what players use in the GTA games combined with the gun-slinging action from the first version of Red Dead Redemption. It ensures that players will not find it hard adjusting towards the new shooting mechanics.
A Peek Inside The Story
The Red Dead Redemption 2 will happen 12 years before the first game happens. The protagonist Arthur Morgan is the Dutch’s most trusted enforcer. The Dutch adopted him in the gang when he was just a young boy. It is why he feels that the group is his life as a whole and is very loyal to them. Players will see the story unfold through Arthurs eyes as they flee and fight across America while the Dutch tries to maintain his control over the group.
