Since today, we understand 2 features of Red Dead Redemption 2 One is that the video game is likely pertaining to PC, and the other is that Rockstar isn’t making any meaty single-player story DLC to accompany stated release.
The Australian rankings board recently unintentionally teased a possible brand-new release for RDR2. The board ranked it once again, something it ‘d just do if there were another variation of the video game inbound. And considering that there’s no DLC to repackage with the video game as a “Video game of the Year Edition,” the balance of possibility swings in the instructions of a brand-new port. We have actually gotten in touch with Rockstar to see if it’ll use any talk about that a person method or another.
It’s far from the only proof for an approaching PC release. Previously this month the business launched its own video game launcher, something I presumed may be a vessel for an RDR PC release– if just since that’s the only method tossing yet another PC launcher in a currently oversaturated market may make good sense. Dataminers likewise exposed proof of PC settings in the RDR2 buddy app.
When It Comes To the DLC, 2 Rockstar staff members verified to VG247 that they’re “100% concentrated on Online today,” generally eliminating expect a single-player spin-off. They insist they enjoy single-player video games and RDR2‘s “ definitely huge story and similarly huge epilogue are ideally proof of that”– which truthfully seems like a coded method of stating,” Truly, y’ all still aren’t pleased?”
Severe concern: do we actually requirement single-player DLC for RDR2? Without implying to ruin anything, that video game’s story was finished up as tight as a burrito. There’s not actually space for a story DLC anywhere, a minimum of absolutely nothing that would fit with the primary video game thematically.
When a story is that definitively completed as Red Dead Redemption‘s is, where exists to go? The very first video game selected to spin an insane alternate universe including zombies, unicorns, and cruel Aztec divine beings. Undead Headache holds on to RDR‘s vestiges of grounded realism by the really suggestions of its fingers. A theoretical Undead Headache 2 would need to let them go totally to be strange sufficient to validate its own presence.
And when you do that, what takes place? You end up being Saints Row 4, that’s what. And as much as I loved Saints Row 4— how can you not enjoy a video game in which you can ride a velociraptor that sings “Rock the Dinosaur”– the video game’s only similarity to a Rockstar title is as an action to the concern, “What would 40 Rockstar devs make if they took speedball for a month and played absolutely nothing however Crackdown?”
