Certain moments in the story will give the player the option to accept or decline additional missions and lightly shape the plot around their choices. The player can choose different dialogue trees with NPCs, such as having a friendly chat or insulting them.
If the player chooses to kill an NPC, they can loot their corpse. Morally positive choices and deeds like helping strangers, abiding the law, and sparing opponents in a duel will add up to the player's Honor.
However, negative deeds such as theft and harming innocents will subtract from the player's Honor. The story is influenced by Honor, as the dialogue and outcomes for the player often differ based on their Honor level.
Hitting milestones for the player's Honor level will grant unique benefits, such as rewarding the player with special outfits and large discounts in stores. A low Honor level is also beneficial, as the player will receive a greater number of items from looted corpses.
Maintaining Arthur and John is important, as they can undergo conditions that affect their health and stamina attributes. In addition to a health and stamina bar, the player also has cores, which affect the rate at which their health and stamina regenerate. For example, wearing warmer clothes will mean they avoid freezing in a cold environment, but wearing them in a hot environment will result in perspiration.
Freezing or overheating will rapidly drain cores. The player can also gain or lose weight depending on how much he eats; an underweight character will have less health but at an increase of stamina, while an overweight character will be able to better absorb damage but will have less stamina.
The player can eat and sleep to replenish their cores. The player can bathe to remain clean, and can visit a barber to change hairstyles; hair also grows realistically over time.
The game features weapon degradation, with weapons requiring cleaning to maintain their performance. When the player uses a certain type of gun for a long period of time, they become more experienced with it, which improves weapon handling, reduces recoil, and increases the rate of reloading. Gunfights are an essential mechanic in the game. The player can take cover, free aim, and target a person or animal.
Individual body parts can also be targeted to take targets down without killing them. When the player shoots an enemy, the game's AI reactions and movements depend on where they were hit.
Weapons consist of pistols, revolvers, repeaters, rifles, shotguns, bows, explosives, lassos, mounted Gatling guns , and melee weapons such as knives and tomahawks. Red Dead Redemption 2 brings back the trademark mechanic in the franchise: Dead Eye, a targeting system that allows the player to slow down time and mark targets.
Once the targeting sequence ends, the player fires to every marked location in a very short space of time. The Dead Eye system upgrades as the player progresses in the game and grants the player more abilities, such as being able to spot the fatal points of their enemies. The bounty system also returns from Red Dead Redemption , a crime-governing mechanic inspired by Grand Theft Auto ' s wanted system.
When a player commits a crime, witnesses run to the nearest police station to get the law to intervene, and the player needs to stop the witness to avoid repercussions.
Once the law is alerted, law enforcers appear and will start investigating. When the player is caught, the Wanted meter appears with a bounty sent on their head. The bounty grows higher as the player commits more crimes, and more lawmen will be sent to hunt them. If the player has committed serious crimes and then manages to escape the law, bounty hunters will be hired to track them down in the wilderness. After committing enough crime, the U. Marshals will be sent to the player's location.
To escape law enforcement, the player must evade a red circular zone in the map and the wanted meter will slowly deplete. They can alternatively hide from the pursuers or kill them. When caught by lawmen, the player has the opportunity to surrender if they are unarmed and on foot, though bounty hunters will not accept surrender if the player is known to slip out of apprehension attempts.
The player can remove their bounty by paying it off at a post office or by surrendering to law enforcement and spending time in jail. The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 spans five fictitious U. The states of New Hanover, Ambarino, and Lemoyne are new to the series, and are located to the immediate north and east of Red Dead Redemption ' s world, whilst the states of New Austin and West Elizabeth return from Red Dead Redemption.
West Elizabeth consists of wide plains, dense forests, and the prosperous port town of Blackwater. The player takes on the role of Arthur Morgan Roger Clark , a lieutenant and veteran member of the Van der Linde gang.
The gang is led by Dutch van der Linde Benjamin Byron Davis , a charismatic man who extols personal freedom and decries the encroaching march of modern civilization. The gang also includes Dutch's best friend and co-leader Hosea Matthews Curzon Dobell , Red Dead Redemption protagonist John Marston Rob Wiethoff , his partner Abigail Roberts Cali Elizabeth Moore and son Jack Marston Marissa Buccianti and Ted Sutherland , the lazy Uncle John O'Creagh and James McBride , gunslingers Bill Williamson Steve J.
Palmer , Javier Escuella Gabriel Sloyer , and Micah Bell Peter Blomquist , Black Indian hunter Charles Smith Noshir Dalal , and housewife-turned-gunslinger Sadie Adler Alex McKenna.
The gang members' criminal acts bring them into conflict with various opposing forces including the wealthy oil magnate Leviticus Cornwall John Rue , whose assets become a gang target. In response, he recruits a team of agents from the Pinkerton Detective Agency , led by Andrew Milton John Hickok and his subordinate Edgar Ross Jim Bentley , to hunt down the gang.
The gang also encounters the Saint Denis-based Italian crime lord Angelo Bronte Jim Pirri , the controversial Guarman ruler Alberto Fussar Alfredo Narciso , and Dutch's nemesis Colm O'Driscoll Andrew Berg , leader of the rival O'Driscoll gang.
Along its travels, the gang becomes entangled with the Gray and Braithwaite families, two warring families who are rumored to be hoarding Civil War gold; the gang's affiliation with the families primarily take place through Leigh Gray Tim McGeever , the sheriff of Rhodes, and Catherine Braithwaite Ellen Harvey , the matriarch of the Braithwaite family. Later in the game, Arthur helps Rains Fall Graham Greene and his son Eagle Flies Jeremiah Bitsui , both members of the Native American Wapiti tribe whose land is being targeted by the Army.
After a botched ferry heist in , the Van der Linde gang are forced to leave their substantial money stash and flee Blackwater. Realizing the progress of civilization is ending the time of outlaws, they decide to gain enough money to escape the law and retire.
They rob a train owned by Cornwall, who hires Pinkertons to apprehend them. The gang perform jobs to earn money, as Dutch continually promises the next heist will be their last. Following a shootout with Cornwall's men in Valentine, the gang relocate to Lemoyne, where they work simultaneously for the Grays and Braithwaites in an attempt to turn them against each other. However, the families double-cross them: the Grays kill a gang member during an ambush, while the Braithwaites kidnap and sell Jack to Bronte.
The gang retaliate and destroy both families before retrieving Jack from Bronte, who offers them leads on work, but eventually double-crosses them. Dutch kidnaps and feeds him to an alligator as revenge, which disturbs Arthur. The gang rob a bank in Saint Denis, but the Pinkertons intervene, killing Hosea and arresting John.
Dutch, Arthur, Bill, Javier, and Micah escape the city via a ship heading to Cuba. A torrential storm sinks the ship, and the men wash ashore on the island of Guarma, where they become embroiled in a war between tyrannical sugar plantation owner Fussar and the enslaved local population.
After helping the revolutionaries kill Fussar, the group secure transport back to the United States and reunite with the rest of the gang. Dutch obsesses over one last heist and doubts Arthur's loyalty after he disobeys him by liberating John earlier than planned, naming Micah his top lieutenant in Arthur's place. Arthur becomes concerned that Dutch is no longer the man he knew, as he is becoming insular, abandons their ideals, and murders Cornwall.
He is faced with his mortality when he is diagnosed with tuberculosis. Arthur reflects on his actions and how to protect the gang following his death, telling John to run away with Abigail and Jack and openly defying Dutch by aiding the local Native American people.
When the Pinkertons assault the camp, Dutch becomes paranoid that a gang member is working as an informant. Several gang members become disenchanted and leave, while Dutch and Micah arrange one final heist of an Army payroll train.
Arthur's faith in Dutch is shattered when he abandons Arthur to the Army, leaves John for dead, and refuses to rescue Abigail when she is taken. Arthur and Sadie rescue Abigail from Milton, who names Micah as the Pinkertons' informer before Abigail kills him. Arthur returns to camp and openly accuses Micah of betrayal. Dutch, Bill, Javier, and Micah turn on Arthur and a newly returned John, but the standoff is broken when Pinkertons attack. The player can choose to have Arthur aid John's escape by delaying the Pinkertons or return to the camp to recover the gang's money.
Micah ambushes Arthur, and Dutch intervenes in their fight. Arthur convinces Dutch to abandon Micah and leave. If the player has high honor, Arthur succumbs to his injuries and disease and dies while watching the sunrise; if the player has low honor, Micah executes him. Eight years later, in , John and his family are trying to lead honest lives.
They find work at a ranch where John fights back against outlaws threatening his employer. Believing John is unwilling to give up his old ways, Abigail leaves with Jack.
John takes a loan from the bank to purchase a ranch. He works with Uncle, Sadie, and Charles to build a new home, and proposes to Abigail on her return. Afterwards, learning Micah is still alive and formed his own gang, John, Sadie, and Charles assault his camp and find a recently arrived Dutch, who shoots Micah after a tense standoff and leaves in silence, allowing John to kill Micah and claim the gang's Blackwater stash to pay his debt.
John then marries Abigail and they start a new life on their ranch alongside Jack and Uncle, as Sadie and Charles leave for other pursuits. The final scene shows Edgar Ross observing John's ranch, foreshadowing the events of Red Dead Redemption.
Preliminary work on Red Dead Redemption 2 began shortly following the release of the original game, Red Dead Redemption While the main theme of the original game was to protect family at all costs, Red Dead Redemption 2 tells the story of the breakdown of a family in the form of the Van der Linde gang. The team was interested in exploring the story of why the gang fell apart, as frequently mentioned in the first game. The citizens in the game feature a contrast between rich and poor, while the locales contrast between the civilization and the wilderness.
Red Dead Redemption 2 ' s recording sessions began in The writers put particular focus on the individual stories behind each character, exploring their life before the gang and their reasons for remaining with the group. Red Dead Redemption 2 is the first game from Rockstar built specifically for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Once the team had defined what limitations were sustainable, they found the areas that required the most focus.
A method used to achieve this was through the gang's moving camp, where the player can interact with other characters. The team ensured that the characters maintained the same personality and mood from cutscene to gameplay to make the world feel more alive and realistic. Woody Jackson , who worked with Rockstar on the original game and Grand Theft Auto V , returned to compose Red Dead Redemption 2 ' s original score. The game's music regularly reacts according to the player's decisions in the world.

Matt Bertz of Game Informer described the game as "the biggest and most cohesive adventure Rockstar Games has ever created",  and GamesRadar ' s David Meikleham felt that it "represents the current pinnacle of video game design". Meikleham of GamesRadar wrote that, "story-wise, this is perhaps the boldest triple-A game ever made", praising the unpredictability of the narrative and comparing the game's "high caliber" epilogue to the narrative of The Last of Us Electronic Gaming Monthly ' s Plessas found the journey of redemption for Arthur Morgan to be "far more redeeming" than John Marston's in Red Dead Redemption , noting that his sins heightened his sympathy for the character.
Game Informer ' s Bertz felt that the game has "unequivocally the most well-crafted and fully realized open world in video games". GamesRadar ' s Meikleham declared Red Dead Redemption 2 as "the best looking video game of all time" with some of the most impressive lighting and weather systems. Woody Jackson's musical score was called "top notch" by IGN ' s Reilly, who described it as "an evocative mix of jangling Ennio Morricone -esque guitar and more soulful pieces". Red Dead Redemption 2 ' s gameplay received praise from Giant Bomb ' s Navarro, who noted that, "from the biggest missions right down to the smallest interactions, all of this stuff feels like it was constructed individually".
IGN ' s Reilly felt that, while the game's combat borrowed from the formula of Grand Theft Auto games, the closer battles with more primitive firearms led to more intimate and "exciting" encounters.
Film Crit Hulk, writing for Polygon , criticized the game's control system, summarizing the feeling of it as "not one of difficulty and accomplishment, but constant monotony or frustration".
Gaming journalist Jim Sterling felt that the sheer amount of realism in the game limited capabilities and caused scenarios or animations to be prolonged, such as hunting animals for their pelts. Red Dead Redemption 2 ' s Windows release also received "universal acclaim", according to Metacritic;  it is one of the highest-rated PC games. com echoed similar criticisms, observing that the graphical and technical enhancements meant that advanced hardware was required.

Since the previous installment in the series was among the highest-reviewed and best-selling games of the seventh generation of video game consoles , many analysts believed that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be one of the highest-selling games of and would have a great effect on other game sales during the fourth quarter.
In the United States, Red Dead Redemption 2 was the second-best-selling game of October , behind Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Red Dead Redemption 2 is also the third-fastest-selling non- FIFA game released in its generation, behind Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

As players complete activities throughout the game world, they receive experience points to raise their characters in rank and receive bonuses, thereby progressing in the game.
Prior to the game's release, Dan Houser stated that the team had been working hour weeks "several times in ". Due to the salary-based nature of employment contracts, many employees were not compensated for their overtime work and instead depended on year-end bonus payments that hinged on the sales performance of the game.
Nonetheless, a sentiment echoed across many employee statements was the observation that working conditions had somewhat improved since development on the original Red Dead Redemption. In November , YouTuber Shirrako posted several videos of his player character murdering a female suffragette NPC, including feeding her to an alligator and dropping her down a mineshaft.
Critics noted that the majority of comments on the videos were sexist and misogynistic. and how some players have responded to its depictions thereof". Securitas AB , the parent company of the modern-day Pinkerton agency, issued a cease and desist notice to Take-Two Interactive on December 13, , asserting that Red Dead Redemption 2 ' s use of the Pinkerton name and badge imagery was against their trademark and demanded royalties for each copy of the game sold or that they would take legal action.
Take-Two filed a complaint against Securitas on January 11, , maintaining that the Pinkerton name was strongly associated with the Wild West, and its use of the term did not infringe on the Pinkerton trademark. Critics agreed that Red Dead Redemption 2 was among the best games of the eighth generation of video game consoles.

By Tamoor Hussain on February 6, at AM PST. Rockstar Games has confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 26, The announcement was made on the official Rockstar Games blog where the company apologised for a delay.
In the meantime, please check out these screenshots from the game. We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks.
As previously detailed, Red Dead Redemption 2 follows protagonist Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang "as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive. In May , we got new screenshots showing off various environments , and prior to that, we got Redemption 2's first trailer. More recently, in September , Rockstar released a second Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer teasing the game's story, combat, characters, and some notable moments from throughout.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to both PS4 and Xbox One ; however there's no word on a PC version as of yet. The first Red Dead Redemption has not been released on PC, but Rockstar's last major release, Grand Theft Auto V , made its way to PC. Interestingly, in December , Grand Theft Auto V players discovered references to secret missions in an update that connects to Red Dead Redemption 2.
Rockstar later sent GTA Online players an email in-game that provides a clue to help them pursue "rumors of a lost relic from the frontier.
One of the big questions surrounding Red Dead Redemption 2 is how the huge success of GTA Online will factor into it. Although Rockstar hasn't announced an online component to the game, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of the studio's parent company Take-Two, previously said to expect a "recurrent consumer spending" element to be included in most if not all of the company's games going forward. He left the exact form this model will take ambiguous, however.
It may not, probably won't always be, a virtual currency model, but there'll be some ability to engage on an ongoing basis with our titles after release across the board.
