Red Dead Redemption is the story of former outlaw John Marston and will take place at the turn of the 20th century when the “lawless and chaotic badlands began to give way to the expanding reach of government and the spread of the Industrial Age.” “Along the way, players will experience the heat of gunfights and battles, meet a host of unique characters, struggle against the harshness of one of the world’s last remaining wildernesses, and ultimately pick their own precarious path through an epic story about the death of the Wild West and the gunslingers that inhabited it.” “The team at San Diego have massively exceeded our expectations with the sheer depth of experiences in Red Dead Redemption,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “The seamless combination of breathtaking beauty and intense action, all woven together with strong plotlines in a massive vibrant, rural environment is mind-blowing. We think this game helps to push the limits of what an open-world gaming experience can be.” The game will use Rockstar’s proprietary RAGE game engine, which was used in Table Tennis, Grand Theft Auto IV and Midnight Club: Los Angles. The game will feature an open-world environment which will include frontier towns, wildlife-packed prairies and mountain passes.
Traveling between these towns and cities illustrates one of the most interesting aspects of Red Dead Redemption, its “dynamic event system.”
When Marston’s traveling, whether on horseback or via stagecoach, he’ll run into dynamically generated scenarios, including ambushes from thieves, police arrests, even attacks from mountain lions.
The slow motion “Dead Eye” system of lining up shots in “bullet time” is back and Rockstar reps made good use of the mechanic to fill enemies full of holes, rescuing the kidnapped Bonnie.
There’s definitely some “wild” in Red Dead Redemption’s wild west, as a working ecosystem that includes vultures, bears, cougars, wolves, snakes, armadillos, and rabbits will interact with itself—and with John.
Red Dead Redemption takes place roughly 50 Years after Revolver.
Each horse will have different abilities – Steal a Horse from Town it should be kept in fairly well condition.
Marston can encounter snakes, armadillos, cougars, wolves, coyotes, mountain lions, buzzards and Bears.
Marston can get ambushed.
Marston can trade with Merchant in Town – (Buy or Sell) Including these: General supplies, weapons and even animal skins.
Abandoned Saloon during the day at Night full of Townies.
Marston can play range of Mini Games while in Town – Gamble Townies Money away at Poker.
Marston can highjack other Horses on the move. The Draw Distance looked particularly impressive.
The Red Dead World will be populated with Forests, Rivers, Bustling Towns, and possibly even Snow.
Day/Night Cycle in the Game.
Rage and Natural Motion’s Euphoria which will be applied to Marston and Animals in the Game to make their Animation more lifelike.
Western Themed Music and Effects which helped to create an atmosphere of tension.
Red Dead Redemption is a sequel to Red Dead Revolver which was bought from Capcom by Rockstar Games.
It’s a massive game, bigger then any other GTA.
You will explorer the world like GTA, open new areas on missions, you can ride trains, horses,etc.
The horses he saw in the game are the most realistic to date, if you find a wild horse you have to tame it before you can ride it.
You can kill animals, get their skin and sell it.
It’s a really big game, a Cinematic Experience.
Wallpapers. Screenshots and screencaptures right here. I will update this topic when more information emerges.

Will definately be buying this game. I have been waiting for this since the first one, the deadeye aiming system is sooo fun and the original made you feel like you were playing as Clint Eastwood. Will be interesting to see just how big the map actually is.
