Red Dead Redemption 2 was announced this year with a lot of fanfare. The original game was a smashing success with its open world old west feel and gripping storyline. And it looks Red Dead Redemption 2 is going to be really huge with the introduction of an online multiplayer that will make fans live out their Westworld fantasies.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will attempt to replicate the online success of another Rockstar game, Grand Theft Auto 5. According to the website Attack Of The Fan Boy, the smoking hot Red Dead Redemption 2 has already registered a domain that would most likely be for the game’s online mode. Take-Two Interactive, the publisher of Red Dead Redemption 2 was spotted to be the purchaser of the domain named Red Dead Online. So it definitely is a clear indication that Red Dead Redemption 2 is geared to give fans an online multiplayer experience.
And if this indeed is the case, then Red Dead Redemption 2 just might be the biggest gaming trend in 2017. To fans who are familiar with HBO’s recent smash hit show Westworld, then they could be in for something similar. In Westworld, the humans are allowed to live their wild west fantasies through an old west theme park filled with life like robots. In Red Dead Redemption 2, gamers can form cowboy groups and go on a shooting spree to their heart’s content. Online missions would most likely make it into Red Dead Redemption 2 online mode and will allow gamers to become bounty hunters, criminals, and officers of the law.
While Red Dead Redemption 2 will most likely not feature Westworld’s constant depiction of sexual assault. The game will most likely contain some sexual elements like cowboys going through brothels. This would be similar to how The Witcher 3 handled the sensitive subject and Red Dead Redemption 2 figures to do the same. Similar to Grand Theft Auto 5’s wildly engaging online mode, Red Dead Redemption 2 and it’s online multiplayer will be a chock full of violence and old west fantasies.
Red Bull has compiled a wish list of everything fans would want in the Red Dead Redemption 2 wishlist and it would be a good idea for RockStar to take notice. First is that there should still be strict rules in place so that everyone can enjoy their Red Dead Redemption 2 online experience. While getting shot randomly by a gang of cowboys seem pretty raw and fun the first three times, it will definitely hinder any momentum to those who want to enjoy the experience.
Another is more group activities. Red Dead Redemption 2 should definitely implement something like creating quests that will make players band together to go on bounty hunting missions as well as treasure hunts. They could split the loot and would really have Red Dead Redemption 2 capture the spirit of the old west. They could also include other less threatening quests like cattle herding or trading wares. Red Dead Redemption 2 could definitely be that game that can create one of the best online experience.
The #RDR2 trailer was released at 1:30am in my time zone last Friday, and I was waiting all of Thursday night for it! However I fell asleep just before midnight, but somehow I miraculously woke up at exactly 1:30am and watched the trailer 12 seconds after it was posted by @rockstargames. For all you biologists or psychologists out there, it appears that even my suprachiasmatic nuclei is excited for RDR2 ???????? #reddeadredemption #reddeadredemption2 #reddead #rdr #sequel #prequel #johnmarston #cowboy #wildwest #dutchsgang #acst #scn #suprachiasmaticnucleus #xbox #playstation #gaming #trailer #hype
Red Dead Redemption 2 might also implement a constantly evolving world where the whole world can get bigger. New things like more outfits and better guns could also be updated from time to time just so gamers can totally immerse themselves in Red Dead Redemption 2 and its online world. This would give Red Dead Redemption 2 a longer life and a reason for gamers to feel as if they are progressing within the game. This is something that a lot of online gaming worlds are missing
If Red Dead Redemption 2 can pull this off, then fans may just have a game that is worthy of Westworld.
