Rockstar apparently iterated on the Horse system of Red Dead Redemption 2 for years to make it deep and engaging. They also moved away from open world tropes to create a far more subtle, real and dynamic world.
I hope so, bug how true that is remains to be seen. The problem woth an open world is the time it makes to create good, filling, content. That's why your open world 'tropes' exist - easy to replicate things.
RDR and GTA5 were far better made than other open world games (felt more organic and alive, more attention to detail, high quality missions and side missions, characters always having new dialogue when called after missions, etc), so I have no doubt that RDR2 will continue that trend. Previews pretty much confirm this.
I agree, both RDR and GTA V felt different from all the other open world games, most of the fetch quests and "collecting" that you find in any open world game's to do list was either completely missing or engaging to the point where it didn't feel like a chore.
Hopefully 7 - 8 years was enough time to make some interesting shit
Hopefully the horse turns out to be more useful than Roach.
It sounds much, much deeper than that.
horse balls, is all i have to say, haha cant wait to play this
That's just the tip of the iceberg my friend ,they are crazy!
Actually, the balls are at the base of the iceberg...
2 weeks folks!!
I thought you were dead, glad you're doing well 😂
I did too. Thanks, friend. I was banned for no reason
lol I've been there. Red Dead is going all out with ball physics. Within weeks we'll see full nudity mods. How R* do it is beyond me but it's awesome what they accomplish
It'll be interesting to see how or what they do to actually move away from the usual open world tropes.
rockstar are masters of open world so i have no doubt this will be brilliant.
"If it’s hurt and dying, you have limited time to get it medicine, and it’s at times like these that the game opens up its own adventures. Suddenly nothing matters as much as helping your horse. That said, you could just let it die and get another. Well, I couldn’t. Maybe you could." The only medicine for a horse back then was a bullet in the brain.
It's mad that this is only two weeks away now. Jeez
"moved away from typical open world tropes" - they are delivering no on that promise and then some. This is going to be one of the greatest games ever when it releases, bring on October 26!. My PS4 Pro is ready
Same here man, I bought a PS4 Pro for Spider-Man and Red Dead Redemption II specifically. Already have Red Dead paid off, just waiting for the 26th now.
well, watever it is, the games looks promising and i cant wait to play it
I hope it has no Invisible walls out of nowhere like GTAV. No excuse for that if they still have it.
GOTY 2018!!! No debate.
I'm more hyped for this game than any I can remember in recent times, I hope it does set a new bar and all the little details like cleaning your guns and brushing your horse ect ect don't start to feel like a chore as that's my only worry.
