Recently a Rockstar Games employee leaked some information on the Import/Export DLC. Now He’s leaked some information on Red Dead Redemption 2. We cover the information and speculate on what that could mean for Red Dead Redemption 2.
How will Rockstar implement 3 protagonists in Red Dead Redemption 2?
In the case we really have three playable characters, then we’d wish they were enemies. Example: one of them is from a gang, the other one wants revenge because the gang of the other protagonist destroyed his farm. So now he commits crimes to search for that person and the last one is a bounty hunter or a fed looking for the two of them. We don’t want the 3 of them to belong to the same gang.
It would be very interesting if the 3 characters had conflicting goals and motivations. Like with one character, you work towards robbing banks to provide for yourself and your family. And the other guy is a fed that works towards capturing the robber cause he believes all criminals are rot of the world. And on one hand, you care about the first guy and understand his motivation. But you also understand the second person’s views. Now, that may sound kind of shallow, but if they could pull it off on a larger scale with all 3 characters, RDR 2 can be one of the best games ever.
We actually cared a great deal about GTAV’s characters. And considering the success of GTA’s single player we don’t think anyone could blame Rockstar for taking the same route once more. We know from playing so much of their games that even if it was a game with only one protagonist, it would be just as phenomenal. We guess it’s just the more logical choice.
