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.

This game sounds fuckin' BillyMayzing. One of my favorite things about San Andreas was the countryside/desert exploration. From the sounds of things, this is gonna be the best western game ever.

I've just submitted a news article on it. Knowing my luck, someone's already done the same and had it accepted before mine. It's happened once and it'll probably happen again.

im definitely buying this game. *preordered*


edit: just realised that the grand theft horse idea is brilliant. r* could use it and mooch off the gta name(it'd be gth obviously) and give me some money.
The Awesome One
I cannot wait for the good or evil feature. Its about time R* released a game where you can be a good guy.

Red Dead Redemption Gamestop Pre-Order Outfit voting has begun

QUOTE
Rockstar is inviting us to take part in a voting process to choose what clothing article we want the pre-order bonus at Gamestop to be.

Take a look at the three contestants below:



Head on over to the voting site to read about each outfits benefits and cast your vote!

Merchant. Assassin looks too similar to the normal outfit, and I don't like the hunter's hat, even though the rest of the outfit is cool.
Marney1
I'm interested to see how the horses crumple to the ground when you shoot one.

I kind of like the hunter's hat. But the merchant rocks, too.

Maybe they will explode like the cows in Saboteur.
bOnEs
i don't like any of those outfits... i guess the mercenary one is the best as it reminds me so much of the saboteur... but, i don't like any of them really and if this is the only incentive to pre-order with gamestop then, i'll wait until i hear of something better somewhere else...
Bitch Heartless
pretty cool looking
Kamahl
ive never bought this kind of games, but this looks like it could be worth it! Ill buy it if i have money when it comes out
PabloHoneyOle
I never played Red Dead Revolver, but I did play Gun and I fucking LOVED Gun. It was basically GTA set in the Wild West. It had a decent story, pretty good gameplay and was really a lot of fun. I imagine Red Dead Redemption will be right up my alley, it looks like a better version of Gun - essentially a sequel to it as well.
