Possibly the biggest game of 2017 was announced late last year with a very short, but exciting, teaser trailer. The trailer features the beautiful landscape of the Red Dead world while also showcasing the realistic wildlife we’re likely to encounter during hunting sessions like in the previous Red Dead. This is probably the most excited I’ve been for a game since Rockstar announced Grand Theft Auto V, and I must say, I’m even more excited for Read Dead than I was for Gta V. I’ve spent countless hours exploring the wild lands hunting animals, finding treasure, and just causing all around mayhem playing as the dead shot gunslinger, Jack Marston! Now lets get down to the nitty gritty of what we know so far.
Apparently, Red Dead is geared up to release this Fall, which was around the time Gta V was also released. People tend to wait until the end of the year to buy most of their video games and by releasing Red Dead during the fall, you can expect Red Dead to do big numbers, not Gta V big, but big nonetheless.
Red Dead will feature online multiplayer just like in the previous one, which was a blast for me and my friends. The online mode allowed you to join up with your crew and free roam the huge world that Red Dead had to offer. Players had the opportunity to choose between characters as well as unique mounts that they unlocked while leveling up on the online game mode. With the success of Gta V’s multiplayer mode, and with how successful the previous online game mode was for Red Dead, I would assume the guys at Take Two Productions will spend a little more time enhancing the online game mode. As you may already know, the creators of rockstar games have always been tight lipped about their releases, but recently the CEO of Take Two came out and spoke about Red Dead 2 during a phone call. According to Gamespot, Strauss Zelnick states, “obviously, we’re incredibly excited about the title. Not just Red Dead Redemption 2, but also the online offering to come.” Zelnick goes on to say, “So , I don’t think there is any competitive dynamic with any of our upcoming releases, apart from the fact that our success is driven by quality…” Obviously, Zelnick is stating that Red Dead Redemption 2 will not be in competition with GTA V, and Red Dead online will carve it’s out its own chunk of fans while using quality gaming, just as GTA online does.
