Red Dead Redemption 2's Incredible Size - New Details and Interview with Dan Hauser


The soon-to-be-released cowboy action movie Red Dead Redemption 2 has become a cult following among Rockstar fans. The more facts about RDR 2 emerge online, the more obvious it is that one of the most ambitious and large-scale games in history awaits us. Do you still have doubts about this? Then we will give a short excerpt from a new interview with Rockstar creator Dan Hauser and an unofficial selection of new details of Red Dead Redemption 2 from a gamer who managed to play the upcoming hit "Rockstar".

Highlight from interview with Dan Hauser for American Vulture:

  • The game script is 2,000 pages long, and it will take at least 65 hours to complete the game. It is important to note that it is not entirely clear from the interview, 65 hours is the standard for completing only one storyline, or these figures include a complete cleanup of locations with all additional buildings. Until now, the record holder in terms of script size - GTA V, which fit into 3500 pages
  • A record number of actors were hired for the game - 1200 people (700 of them donated not only animation, but also voiced dialogues to the game), and the motion capture of animation took about 2200 days. The days for motion capture are counted according to a special metric and 24 hours of work in the studio can be counted as several days of filming

  • Even more numbers: Red Dead Redemption 2 has over 300,000 animations, 500,000 lines of dialogue, 200 animal species with uniquely recorded sounds, 192 tracks on the soundtrack, and at least 70 pre-production of each Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer test versions of videos
  • If Red Dead Redemption 2 meets the expectations of investors and sells in an impressive print run, Dan Hauser does not rule out the possibility of creating a triquel
  • Rockstar declined to hire Hollywood actors to voice the characters in RDR 2, as they often try to show their "I" on the set and come into conflict with the developers

Westerns of colossal proportions - the colossal amount of free space on the hard disk. If you follow the news on the Red Dead Redemption 2 game, then you probably heard that the Rockstar project will require 105 gigabytes on the console. Until recently, this information was only a rumor, but yesterday the official PlayStation account on Twitter confirmed the monstrous size of the game.


New details of Red Dead Redemption 2 from a gamer from the ResetEra gaming forum:

  • Arthur can put on or take off his gloves. This action takes place in real time
  • You can choose how to consume alcohol - drink glasses in one gulp, or drink slowly while enjoying an alcoholic drink
  • Game missions are presented unobtrusively and most of them are easy to miss. For example, a follower of Morgan can report that character "X" wanted to see him, but no active marker appears on the map. If you ignore or forget about the quest, you can easily skip it
  • Animal transport in Red Dead Redemption 2 consumes stamina, which is restored by rest or food, which is why it is always worth considering your actions beforehand

  • If the enemies communicate with each other, then secretly eliminating one and interrupting the conversation, the other will go to check why the interlocutor is silent
  • People caught with the lasso no longer behave like weak-willed dummies (remember the original Red Dead Redemption), but can fight back and eventually get out of the ropes
  • If you go downhill quickly on a horse, the animal can injure its paws
  • The player described the experience of the combat system as “something between Max Payne 3 and GTAV”
