Red Dead Redemption 2 is on the horizon. May of 2010 is one of those months that video game fans won’t forget any time soon. This is due to the fact that it was the month in which we saw the release of Red Dead Redemption. The open world game with a Western Twist proved to be a huge success with both critics as well as fans. While its creator, Rockstar Games may be most known for their Grand Theft Auto series, this game showed that they had more in their locker. Upon its release, the game ended up winning many Game Of The Year awards. It was a truly invigorating experience that left fans wanting more. They didn’t want the saga to end there. All this led to many people asking for another game in the series.
Rockstar Games made the sensible decision not to immediately come up with something and played the waiting game. They realised that rushing into producing a new game may not yield the best possible results. This meant that fans have had to wait for a long time. But finally, all their prayers were answered when Rockstar announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 would release in 2018. After an eight-year long wait, the fans got what they wanted. This is said to be a prequel of sorts to the 2010 game. The announcement sent fans into a state of frenzy as many had lost hope that the game would ever come. Given the history of the franchise and the love that people have towards it, there is no doubt that this is the most exciting game set to be released this year. Here are a few reasons why.
While there have been many games with a Western setting, very few have been able to capture the era with any form of authenticity. And since it’s an open world, one can get a feel of how life used to be back in the day. Whenever there is a Western-themed game, the anticipation levels are quite high as people are simply excited to experence a part of that era. By creating an immersive experience, Rockstar was able to make the previous Red Dead a much better game than people thought it would be.
One thing that people associate with this type of setting is the music. This is one of those areas where the Red Dead series has never failed. The soundtrack evokes memories of classic Western films and at the same time, they add their own touch as well. In the upcoming game, the player will control an outlaw known as Arthur Morgan. It will bring back all the elements that made it great to begin with.
The game is coming from a studio that is known to be the leader when it comes to open world games. With Red Dead Redemption, they proved that they had other tricks up their sleeve. And also that there is more to them than just the Grand Theft Auto series. Rockstar’s track record is one of the primary reasons why people are excited. They have proven over and over again that they can provide quality games that can be entertaining and enthralling in equal measure. The release of the game trailer has gone a long way in removing any doubts that fans might have had. Now, all one can do is wait for the game to be released.
With the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, players get a chance to revisit the world that captivated them in the first place. The game will expand on what we know already. This allows a user to dig deeper into the history of the Red Dead universe. So wait for just a little longer and you will soon be able to travel the Wild West, take part in thrilling heists, and forge your own path with the help of the innovative honour system that was implemented in 2010. All of this promises to make it easily the most exciting game of 2018.
