"Red Dead Redemption 2 coming Q4 "


  

          

http://www.mnrdaily.com/article/red-dead-redemption-2-update-possible-release-date-revealed/7998.htm

The release date of "Red Dead Redemption 2" has been revealed which will be on the fourth quarter of the year. But before the launching, gamers can have a sneak peek of the forthcoming video game at the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) which will be held in June at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California.

The release of the "Red Dead Redemption" in 2010 was considered a success for its publisher Rockstar Games. Many fans from all over the world are now anticipating for the new installment of the "Red Dead" series.

In a statement, Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Take-Two Interactive which is the parent company of Rockstar Games confirmed that a sequel of Red Dead Redemption is already at work. He also stated that the video game series will become a permanent franchise.

"I pretty much know the ones that I can assure you are permanent. It's obvious that GTA is a permanent franchise as long as we keep delivering this incredible quality; it seems quite obvious that 'Red Dead' is a permanent franchise, again with the same caveat, or Borderlands, for example, and NBA and others," Zelnick stated.

In terms of setting, theories have circulated on the web stating that the video game will have its setting in Japan. This is quite strange since the game is primarily focused on the Western area. Other reports also stated that more states in the U.S. will be added into the new game which include Utah, Arizona, Denver, New Mexico, Texas, Mexico, South Dakota and Louisiana.

The developer of the upcoming title has not yet confirmed any of the rumors. Little information about the game has also been provided.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" will be available on different platforms such as the Xbox One, PS4 and PC this coming Oct. 2016.

I think we get another towards the end. They're releasing/released tons of content for Online and that's probably to flesh out some ideas they're thinking about for Red Dead or GTA 6. Same way as after Red Dead, Rockstar put a lot more animals in their other games because of all the work they did.

How long do you think this current generation is going to last?

Both the 360 and PS3 are 10 years old.

Do you think Microsoft and Sony will wait until 2023 to release a new system?

extrapolated from vague quotes posted on possibly sketchy sites

please stop

(unless you know something we don't)

that said, i wouldn't be surprised to learn that rockstar is working on something RDR-related b/c it seems like they're not interested in GTAV DLC and their updates to GTA online haven't been the kind of thing that requires a whole studio

but it could be bully 2 as well

Around a few more reputable sites today - first time I've seen stories that didn't look like naked clickbait.

Maybe this actually IS happening after all.

>Maybe this actually IS happening after all.

there's way too much money to pass up for Rockstar and the other associated companies to decline from releasing this game.

It's impressive up tight lipped all the folks are that have been working on this for what I'm assuming has be quite some time now. The disclosure forms that have to be signed to work on this game in any capacity must be quite serious.

last quarter of the trailer has some town scenery. the final shot is a large group of men riding horses together. that, along with the immediate mention of "online" in the original press release, the 7 men in the 2nd image of the game released, and the very public registering of "read dead online" makes me think this is going to be a multiplayer focused game. gta online makes a lot of money for rockstar and i'm sure they want to keep pulling those funds in with an additional game that has a lot of microtransactions

but the 7 men in the above mentioned image and trailer could just be a nod to the magificent seven. maybe RDR2 is going for a gta v style multi-character narrative with 7 people

They are talking about this game like it's going to fundamentally shift the way open world games are designed going forward. It sounds like they're almost certainly breaking from their own structure of open world games by opening up more of the side content earlier, but it also sounds like they're trying to make side quests a more organic part of the gameplay rather than a checklist the way Ubisoft games, The Witcher and God of War did it.

God of War let you find things for yourself, but the structure of the Lake of Nine still made it feel, for a player like me, like you were supposed to do a big circle around the central structure and visit every shore before you progressed the story. It was better than the anxious, gotta clear 'em all vibe the question mark-riddled maps of Horizon and The Witcher had, but it was still implied the game would be more enjoyable if you put the main game off until all the side stuff was done.

Rockstar seems to be trying to root everything in your base and spin out from that based on the needs of certain communities and characters which in turn is based on what you're doing in the game. It doesn't even sound like you'll be accepting quests so much as being told by someone they need or want something and then you just either remember to do it or don't.

I'm not all the way in on everything they were saying; not sure I want a basebuilding sim ala Metal Gear 5 in my Rockstar game, and there's obviously a lot of opportunity for them to expand on the microtransactions from GTA Online in the offline game with this sort of system. But it's very interesting to me that Rockstar seems to be trying to shake things up in a way they haven't really done with the single player side of their games since the light RPG mechanics of San Andreas.

and honestly nobody does it better than Bethdesa but Rockstar is definitely a solid second imo.. GTA and Red Dead are thoroughly enjoyable games and only fall short of bethdesa in terms of character level development and customization and crafting/building... and I won't lie there are things about he Rockstar engines that are better.. vehicles and mounts to name one Bethdesa falls way short on those aspects... I've been waiting for this dam red dead redemption since inception.. I'm trusting it'll be worth the wait because rockstar seldom disappoints. but it has been one hell of a long wait has it not?

25. "Waiting for this"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

to land on Amazon so I can get that nice 20% pre-order discount is slow torture. Did it take this long for Grand Theft Auto to land on Amazon in the past? All the other retailers have this available for pre-order status as of two week ago.

Patience is not on of my virtues unfortunately.

26. "They're still trying to figure out their RDR online strategy"
In response to Reply # 25


  

          

Obviously GTA Online has been KILLING on micro transactions, so in that sense its not sensible for them to digress from that model for RDR, but I'll bet it's also really hard to reconcile the billion dollar budgets they built that system for with the financial model of the 1890s (and for whatever it's worth, Rockstar cares about shit like that).

There's also been enough backlash against micro transactions - particularly within Take Two's own business with NBA 2K18 - that I'm sure shareholders want to make sure whatever their online strategy with this game is, it's going to do GTA numbers and not set the world on fire in any other way.


And until they know what that plan is, they can't sell their Deluxe editions, and if they can't sell their premium packages there's no business sense taking money for the basic version.

for the 20% savings that Amazon has for pre-orders and I noticed collector's item/deluxe versions of games aren't available for the 20% savings; only bare bones versions are allowed.

I ended up pre-ordering the second tier deluxe version at a local Gamestop about a month ago.

of a six minute trailer on my tiny little smartphone and that alone almost made me want to cop a PS4 Pro and get a top of the line TV just so I could fully enjoy this game.

It's going to take supreme willpower on my part to strictly play this game on the weekends; I have a strong feeling it's going to be quite easy to burn two or three hours in this game just exploring the landscape and not even truly focus on completing the main storylines.

Specifically, I adored the side quests in the original Red Dead and how free flowing the game was overall.

I don't think I've ever watched a Western movie at all, not even that all black Mario Van Peebles one from back in the 90's. The prospect of watching one would bore me to tears. Not even my enjoyment of Red Dead Redemption and that Zombie DLC that dropped would convince me otherwise.

if Rockstar did a video showing all the steps it took to make Red Dead Two; assuming of course the game is as amazing as I'm assuming it will be when it drops. I am curious what was done to the game in between 2016 when this rumor initially kicked off til now in 2018.

try and get that zombie DLC that dropped for Red Dead. It adds a level of difficulty to the game since unlike the regular foes in Red Dead, the zombies don't drop bullets when you kill them, which leads you to having to conserve bullets throughout the DLC.

In response to Reply # 46


  

          

it says you get 'exclusive story mode content'
-- bank robbery mission and gang hideout
-- a horse and saddle
-- game boosts / cash bonuses / discounts
-- outfit

-- free weapons for story mode

yikes. i dont want to pay a dead red cent after buying this game, but is the 20 dollars worth a side mission and some game boosts? and it PROBABLY IS, which is just literally horseshit (which is probably incredibly lifelike in the game)

still probably going to pull the trigger on the 80 version.

I wish it came with a Season Pass because I'm certain Rockstar will release some DLC for this game. That Zombie DLC for the first Red Dead was pretty special.

my guess is that rockstar will lean into RDR Online as heavily as they did with GTA Online. i'd be surprised if they released any post-launch single player dlc for RDR 2

In response to Reply # 60


  

          

than the first Red Dead. This led me to putting the game down after finishing just to first two missions. I have the feeling I barely touched the surface, but this game feels like you have to be pretty calculated and measured with your actions, which makes me want to pick it up once I can fully invest some time with it.

The fact your character AND the horse both have stamina you have to closely measure spooked me a bit, since you have to trudge around in the slow moving snow to start things off.

storyline missions have a fair number of cut scenes and yeah there's a hell of a lot of what Ike describes.. a lot of riding but action isn't too hard to find in the open world... I'm just wondering if there'll be enough variety of things to really keep me interested longterm... can't find a way to store large items yet... I think I already lost my legendary bear skin.. disappeared from the main camp after putting it down.

like yeah, your horse gets dirty and your beard be growing and you'll get snitched on if a witness see's you shaking someone down for money, but most of the game's systems aren't so urgent that you need to stop everything to attend to them.

they're just things you need to address when they become a problem.

but until they're a problem, just go where you feel like going and do what you feel like doing. don't let it overwhelm you otherwise you'll have never ending chores.

the game is actually very GTA San Andreas like, lowkey.

This game has a very grounded, weighty atmosphere to it and it reinforces that with all of the systems, the ways the characters move and speak and all that...

But the tutorial also teaches you to play a pretty different game than what it ultimately turns into. I've almost completely fallen off the track of the story hunting pelts, feathers, completing challenges and so forth but I'm still not paying any attention to crafting and I'm definitely not worrying about having supplies to replenish my circles or my cores. I'm doing it ALL THE TIME but enemies carry so many different items that cover you hunting for food and all that is just superfluous stuff you can engage with if you want.

Even if you have your camp fully stocked, if you visit it frequently (I go back almost every night honestly...this game has be finally just trotting, walking instead of running, all that stuff I usually have to pretend is fun to do in GTA) at some point the characters will start cycling into their desperation dialogue even if you're keeping the camp fully upgraded and stocked on everything. It's all just window dressing.

It's kind of hard to fuck around and rampage around but I didn't come here for that and I lowkey kind of love how getting in trouble while you're centrally located in Saint Denis essentially means you're dead. A foot chase down there at night under the gas light is fucking wild.

and as much detail as they've loaded it with. I'm about 20 "missions" in and just got tired of riding, so plopped down by a river and did some fishing for 30 minutes. It was great. As tedious and not-fun as the in-world completion tasks are in GTAV, they are really enjoyable (so far) here.

In response to Reply # 64


  

          

Once you pick the right flowers and herbs you can craft gold core items that give you and your horse major boosts for 24 hours. Also you can get an item from the Fence that improves pelt quality for every animal you kill.
Look in the back window of building in towns, you can get hints that lead you to O'Driscoll hideouts and hesists that lead you to big money.

Open worlders, I'll sometimes rush ahead of the story and just go all over the place, but the way this is unfolding is a-okay with me. I'm into the second camp now (chapter 3) and fine with getting an hour or two a night and calling it a day.

I felt like something was wrong. I was only playing for one of the Gambler challenge tiers where you need to play three rounds of dominoes, non consecutively, and win without having to draw a new domino. Not only did my opponent get to make the first move almost every time, once I started to figure out the rules they always seemed to block me just before I could lay down my last domino. After awhile it got to the point even if I assumed it was playing good dominoes, A) I was still mad this game took Liar's Dice's place and B) I felt like whoever programmed the game either was the biggest fan of dominoes in the world and wanted to make sure people chasing the Gambler outfit would need to spend at least two hours playing dominoes...or they were just slapping it together from a Wikipedia page.

From scoring, to order of play, to even simple game talk. It is a ridiculous flub that has to be down to some English person responsible for it. Unless the theory is “in the old west, white people didn’t know how to play dominoes”.

Win three hands of blackjack while hitting three times or more. That is SO RARE...I have tomorrow off so I’m just mindlessly hitting tonight while catching up on podcasts and it’s been nearly an hour without a three hit thatcdoesnt result in a bust let alone a shot at winning.

I’d recommend people with families bail on the gambler challenge arc at this point since it’s the one that involves some degree of chance and at this point there’s no amount of card counting in the world that can guarantee you have a good time betting two cents over and over for the chance to complete even one of these three wins.

And apparently one of the following two tiers is winning five games of dominoes in a row. Impossible (in this game).

77. "Seems like you kinda are"
In response to Reply # 76


  

          

I’ll admit that I fell off the story after the first weekend, I’ve slowly made my way through chapter 3 but mostly have just been doing the challenges for special trapper outfits and collecting pelts. It seems the fences are the guys that want the jewelry, at least the good/rare ones so you should save jewels for them. I actually haven’t paid attention if the gang makes as much money off pelts as you do from the trapper, or vice versus with the fence, but I’ve written down the things I need for the cosmetic camp upgrades and mostly focus on giving everything to the other guys otherwise.

The game is fun enough that I’m willing to overlook how absolutely insane this loot system is, just from who needs what to how not obvious it is you NEED to sell things to people before they can use it to craft something for you...it’s enough to make me a bit anxious because there really isn’t THAT wide a variety of animals you need to be hunting and yet some of them almost never show up so I’m constantly scanning for three stars of any variety and then scratching my head over who to sprint towards, and whether the carcass is even worth anything to me.

85. "i ended up burning super fast thru the main story"
In response to Reply # 77


  

          

i ended up paying for all the tent upgrades before I even made it to Shady Belle. I have over 4 grand in money right now, i do pretty well about looting when I can. i immediately pay off my bounties bc I was sick of getting murked while riding around on my horse.

i feel like i am *this* close to the game ending, and wont bring up anything yet. I have severely neglected Fences, and hunting... my plan was to finish the main story and then go around hunting and doing Stranger quests. there are at least 6 or 7 side quests with names I can attack. I liked the story I initiated of a guy writing a book and i have to go find 5 gunslingers. I found one that i obtained his custom revolver with and theres some good loot in the tents.

havent even searched for that treasure map, i do remember buying that map tho, so ill have to go after those gold bars.

the game takes a pretty interesting turn toward the "end", i thought this game had like over 12 chapters but im on chapter 6 i think. maybe 7. and it feels like the game is super close to ending.

Which is well worth it.
I took some time and did the James Hill treasure quest, which nets you $1K in gold and makes it easier to swallow spending the money on upgrades.

Upgrade your tents. I didn’t even bother until Chapter 3 and I realized that there was a quick travel map (which I rarely use).

But most of the time I tend to stick around the camp and do chores and shit because I love immersive shit like that.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

It wasn't a mission, I just just riding around on my horse minding my own damn business when I see some torches in the woods. I ride my horse around a bit to see what's going on and I see a bunch of people in a small clearing in the woods with white hoods on talkin some ol wild shit. I stop my horse for a minute, they probably think I pulled up to see if they were talkin about any good shit, I wasn't, I was slowly getting my stick of dynamite out. Tossed it right in the middle of their group and ended them all with minimal effort.

It's wild how this is happening and isn't even something you have to accomplish, it was just randomly happening in the game world. I caught a couple others in the daytime trying to put up a cross, after I was done they were crushed under it.

Feels good.

Funny thing was I didn't even have to do anything. Right as I was queuing up my volatile fire bottle, the guy they were inducting into the klan apparently bumped into the cross and lit on fire. As I came out of Deadeye him and the GW or whatever they're called in this game were already on fire and the crew was scrambling. I think I only caught one with my own weapon.

82. "Real good so far. About 40% in"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

MInor spoilers. This isn’t like GTA5 and I’m very cool with that.

This reminds me of how I felt when we jumped from GTA SA to GTA4. Just a really huge experience so far. The map is spread out and it dots it with a bunch of activities that are completely optional. I haven’t had this much fun exploring a map since Skyrim. Once you wrap up the first couple of hours and the map opens up I recommend everybody just jump on a horse and go exploring. If you have some cash, jump on a train and try to find your way back to camp. My god this map is huge.

I wasn’t excited about this being a prequel but so far I’m really liking it. This is probably RS’s best writing to date, which isn’t saying much, but you can tell they spent a lot of time making the story of the Van Der Linde gang a slow burn. If you’re already familiar with the first game, you know that it didn’t end well for anybody involved but I would say about halfway through the story you finally start to put some pieces together.

The missions are fucking FUN AS HELL. They do a really good job of putting you in this hero fantasy scenario. You get to kick the door down and mow down a bunch of goons after your sidekick throws you the shotgun. You get to jump from a horse to a train and hijack it. You shoot your way out of dozens of situations and there’s no part where I felt like it was tedious or repetitive. You can tell the RS writing team spent months and years reading a lot of Cormac MacCarthy and watching a lot of Peckinpah or the more modern westerns.

This is probably the best time I’ve had with a RS game right when it came out. Of course just be ready for the RS control scheme, where when you gotta get on your horse and escape the law, you’re gonna watch that whole fucking horse mounting animation. They spent millions on this game and you’re gonna watch every cent.

86. "Money tips"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Max your camp out and never donate financially again.
Sell jewelry rather than donating.
Just restock supplies through the ledger.
Your horse can hold 16 animal pelts and small animal items.
Keep that shit filled.
The trapper and fence should be your best friends.
Selling stage coaches may be too tedious for the return.
There's a ton of loot chests scattered about the various camp sites.
Use instinct mode to find them.
Make sure you're looting saddle bags.
The O'Driscolls carry gold nuggets in their saddle bags.
Look out for black smoke as you're riding around
those are either homesteads or hideouts that you can rob.
Always use the instinct mode to find those loot boxes you might not see otherwise.

looking back i am PISSED about how much i donated. honestly the only worth doing would be the map fast travel.

i have missed out on so many saddle bags!! shit.

but im sitting at over $4,000 so i dont have too many financial worries. my next move will be to hunt the legendary animals.... wonder if its possible to kill them with the bow.

89. "on hunting: you can roll with at least two side horses as well."
In response to Reply # 86
Tue Nov-06-18 02:26 PM by Nodima

  

          

It's a bit of a hassle because you can't pull horses out of the stable, and I've had at least two occurrences where gunplay or wild animals have scared a side horse so bad it completely disappeared along with its cargo... but if you get run up on by a rival gang or come across some wild horses, it's smart to stop and take the time to recruit those horses and brush/feed/ride them to level 1 or 2 bondage which doesn't take much time at all. I routinely go hunting with my main horse and two side horses which is super rad when you're focused on the bigger game like bears, elks, gators or cougars. It also obviously means that 16 pelt limit expands to 48 pelts, which is a lot of pelts.

The extra horses don't abandon you on a whim, though, and maybe it was just kind of a glitch, but I try to make a point of leaving them at camp when I don't need them just in case something in the game's code is trying to get rid of them. The third horse usually doesn't show up on your map with a horse icon like the first secondary does, so I'm not sure the game was designed with multiple horses in mind. I haven't had the patience to try having four horses, partially because...

The only problem with this approach is you can sometimes get extremely greedy and get caught out there hunting "just one more" only to have your carcasses start going bad. Part of the reason I'm glad carcasses are way less important than pelts in this game.

Hell of an emotional ride.

I'm gonna try to complete the stuff from the tasks list.
I'm sitting at 80% for the story
and the map is still only about 85% uncovered

Need to turn aim assist off so I can get ready for online.

there are ton of things I just don't want to do. I would be happy with an option to just shoot Dutch in the head early or rat him out to the pinkertons and be done with it. Deep into chapter 6 and still have, oh, 65% of the map not yet opened.

i am not sure what compelled me to just do yellow stories, but i totally ignored all side, stranger, or random options. kind of regret it after finishing the epilogue but i guess it gave me more things to do... but after finishing the story i havent even turned the game on. never hunted a single legend animal so i know im missing quite a bit of stuff.
