Red Dead Redemption – Released Friday!

by Clayton on May 19, 2010

It’s been quite some time since Red Dead Revolver, a great game in my opinion. Cool set pieces and superb shoot outs set it apart from run of the mill shooters. The UK release date is 21st of May which is this Friday for those who can’t be arsed to check the calendar. So what can we expect from this western gem?

Well firstly it’s claiming to be as free roaming as GTA which is never a bad thing, that sort of persistent environment can only help to enhance your emersion as a cowboy. Water will kill you though apparently well anything above chest height as the main character can’t swim – not sure if I think that’s somewhat lazy programming. There’s also some sort of morality engine, very similar to the ones in the Knights of the old Republic or even Dragon Age: Origins as a more recent example. Looks like there’s a varied selection of horses but I gotta admit a horse is a horse to me so unsure how they’ll carry that in the game – maybe you’ll get standard mounts and epic mounts…

Yeeeeeee Haaawwww

Looks like the combat system is pretty much the same if not highly polished again not a bad thing as this is what made it so cool in the first one!

One mode that is peaking my interest is called ‘Posse Mode’ which is a multiplayer free roaming mode for up to 16 players!

Regulators! Mount up…
