6 Ways Red Dead Redemption 2 Is Revolutionary

by Atak Arple

Red Dead Redemption 2 was a game that changed a lot of things, as these cases show.

One of the most anticipated games of 2018 was Red Dead Redemption 2, and unlike other big games like Cyberpunk 2077, it was everything fans wanted and expected. Red Dead Redemption 2 did more than meet fans’ hopes; it set the stage for the next generation of video games and raised the bar for AAA games.

Even though Red Dead Redemption 2 came out a few years ago, it is still a very famous game that a large number of gamers still play. There are a few parts of the game that keep people interested even years after it came out, which is why it was such a big hit.

One Of The Biggest Maps In Gaming History

Rockstar is known for making big maps for games like Grand Theft Auto, but the Red Dead Redemption 2 world map is so big and has so much detail that it doesn’t even compare to other game maps. Many players might agree that Skyrim showed what a good world map should look like.

When compared to Skyrim’s map, Red Dead Redemption 2’s world map is almost twice as big, and players can’t get from one place to another as quickly. In Red Dead Redemption 2, players have to ride horses or take stagecoaches to get around the 29 square miles of land. This makes the map seem even bigger.

Historical Accuracy & Authenticity

Red Dead Redemption 2 is based on a lot of study so that it is as true to history as possible. Details like Arthur’s involvement in a Suffragette protest, the Pinkertons (an organisation that made it hard for people to join unions), and the way Annesburg and Guarma are shown are all based on real historical events.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is not only true to the time period it takes place in, but it also uses real historical facts in the game. In the semi-lawless America of the 1800s, gang shootouts, guns, death, diseases like tuberculosis, poaching, and violence were common. The game looks at all of these things.

A Living Open World

Many open-world games keep the player interested on different levels, but Red Dead Redemption 2 does it on a whole new one.The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is alive because everything in it acts like it would in real life. The player might see a coyote chasing a squirrel or an eagle swooping down to catch a snake while wandering.

Predators like bears are very hard to kill, just like they are in real life, and training a wild horse is a skill that requires the player to be patient and persistent.When Arthur goes fishing, the fish take a long time to bite, and if they aren’t brought in properly, they might get away. When Arthur’s horse runs through water, it gets clean, and when Arthur swims for a long time, he gets very tired. The list keeps growing.

Next Level Detail & Realism

Red Dead Redemption 2 has a live, open world, and almost every other part of the game is true to life. Small things like Arthur’s beard growing over time, his tuberculosis getting worse over time, and him losing weight if he doesn’t eat enough were not tried in games that came before this one.

Red Dead Redemption 2 also has a big focus on consequences.As you might find in real life, a metre shows how good or bad Arthur is based on whether he kills a citizen or refuses to help someone in need. In the same way, the police will go after Arthur if he shoots harmless people in a town, and so on.

Believable & Engaging NPCs

The NPCs in Red Dead Redemption 2 also act like real people, which is another nice touch that Rockstar added. If Arthur walks around town covered in mud or blood, non-player characters will stay away or say that Arthur stinks.

In towns, NPCs also remember what the player did before. NPCs remember if Arthur and his friends made trouble or helped people in town, and they react to Arthur accordingly. Another feature is that shopkeepers, bartenders, and other people will talk to Arthur about current events, which often involve him or the gang.

Cinematic Camera

Rockstar has added a cinematic camera setting to Red Dead Redemption 2 so that long trips are more interesting. The cinematic camera gives the player a widescreen view of Arthur travelling through the beautiful American scenery of the 1800s, and the player can also change the view angle.

This feature makes it feel like the player is watching a movie, but they can still control what Arthur does on-screen. Because of this mode, fans and players have been able to take some amazing screenshots of Geometry Dash Subzero game, some of which look so real that they could be real pictures of the American landscape.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
