How GTA 5 Could Influence Red Dead Redemption 2

/ Apr 28th, 2017 No Comments

First Trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2

With the impending release of Red Dead Redemption 2, fans are eager to soak up as much information about the game as possible. However, Rockstar Games has been silent about the game since the official announcement trailer released. So, how can we find out more about Red Dead Redemption 2? We may know a little bit about the direction of the game through comparison.

Rockstar Games has almost exclusively dealt in open-world action adventure games in the past with few exceptions, and seeing as Red Dead Redemption 2 falls into this category too, we should have a good enough idea of what kind of quality to expect. However, for a more specific comparison, we can look at Rockstar’s most recent release.

Grand Theft Auto 5 was the last game Rockstar launched, and it will very likely influence the upcoming RDR2 in many ways, primarily due to its success. Because GTA 5 was a commercial and critical success, Rockstar will likely incorporate parts of it into their next game. That said, for all the praise it receives and the success that GTA 5 is known for, it isn’t a flawless game. There are many aspects we’d love to see return in RDR2, but there are also some that are best left in the past.

How GTA 5 Could Affect Red Dead Redemption 2

To start things off on a positive note, let’s look at what aspects of GTA 5 should rub off on RDR2. The first thing that comes to mind is scale. If we’re looking at bang for buck, nothing out there beats GTA 5.

This isn’t a 10-hour campaign and half-baked multiplayer mode you’re dishing out $60 for. Instead it’s a massive, sprawling single-player campaign with countless side activities, collectibles, easter eggs, legitimate PC mods and cheat codes that could keep you playing past the 100-hour mark. And then there is GTA Online, an ever-growing multiplayer mode with constant free DLC support to enjoy once you’ve maxed out the solo mode.

Rockstar will likely take from GTAV for Red Dead Redemption 2.

We don’t have much to fear in this regard, as Rockstar is known for its masterfully crafted worlds and content rich games. It’s hardly likely that they would forsake that tradition for RDR2.

Speaking of masterfully crafted worlds, that’s another aspect where GTA 5 shined. The game world is so vibrant and lively that no other open-world has felt nearly as real in gaming before, or since. The Wild West is a unique and iconic setting, and while the teaser trailer indicates that RDR2 will be more than just your typical western, we can’t wait to explore the entire map.

How Red Dead Redemption 2 Could Improve on GTA 5

As for the less than savory aspects of GTA 5, well, it has to be the peer-to-peer server structure in the multiplayer online mode that stands out as the single worst aspect. The decision to opt for this as opposed to dedicated servers is haunting GTA Online to this day. The old-generation consoles and PC versions are rife with hackers and modders. While it may be true that Red Dead Redemption 2 has only been announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a PC version may be down the road and it’s only a matter of time before those two systems are cracked as well.
 

Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 will need to stand out on its own.

Another aspect we’d personally prefer Rockstar doesn’t revisit is that of the multiple protagonists. This question is quite controversial, as the community is divided about it and alleged leaks have suggested both possibilities. However, keeping the story focused on a single character provides a tighter, more personal experience. Multiple main characters usually work in film, however even in ensemble movies there usually is one “main” character who stands out from the team. But then, games are fundamentally different. The system might have worked (or not, depending on how you see it) in GTA 5, but RDR2 would benefit from handing control to just one scrappy outlaw with a heart of gold to the players as opposed to three.

Hopefully in the coming weeks Rockstar will reveal more about the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2. In the meantime, speculation is all we have to go on.
