Video Game: Red Dead Redemption

Postby Tama on Tue 10/Feb/09 2:10pm

Rockstar Games have announced a new "wild west" video game for later this year. Look's great: http://www.rockstargames.com/reddeadredemption/

Rockstar Games is proud to announce that Red Dead Redemption is scheduled for a fall 2009 release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. Developed by Rockstar San Diego, as a follow up to the 2004 hit game, Red Dead Revolver, Red Dead Redemption is a Western epic, set 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. The story of former outlaw, John Marston, Red Dead Redemption takes players on a great adventure across the American frontier.

Utilizing Rockstar's proprietary Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE), Red Dead Redemption features an open-world environment for players to explore, including frontier towns, rolling prairies teaming with wildlife, and perilous mountain passes - each packed with an endless flow of varied distractions. 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.

Someone made a sandbox wild west game a few years back. Forget the name, but don't think it was Red Dead Revolver... Anyhow, that game was supposedly a massive letdown.

Lets hope this one is better. There's potential for a brilliant game here :thumbsup:

Hopefully the drifts, burnouts, and splatters are still as fun on a horse...

What I like about this is that it is something aesthetically different from the the usual cities, battlefields, alien planets, or spaceships. :)

Well, that's where we go a-ridin' into town, a-whompin' and a-whumpin' every livin' thing that moves within an inch of its life. Except the women folks, of course.
You spare the women?
Naw, we rape the shit out of them at the Number Six Dance later on.
