Red Dead Redemption 2 – the first project of Rockstar on new modern gaming platforms, so the developers compared the world of western with their previous game GTA 5.
How much more, the world of the western Red Dead Redemption 2 will be better and more detailed in comparison with GTA V, the game developers themselves told. The artistic director of Rockstar San Diego, Josh Bass, shared with the fans details. “Grand Theft Auto V has become a high-quality standard for our company, but despite the existence of a version for Xbox One and PS4, the project was technically based on the capabilities of the previous generation of consoles. RDR2 is our first game on the new hardware and has become an opportunity for the team to improve each direction of the game design. ” Josh Bass said that this concerns graphics, AI lighting, weather, sound, and animation. In addition, the modern generation of consoles allows “to create a world that will go beyond everything that ever created Rockstar in terms of depth, interactivity, and duration.”
Artistic director of Rockstar North Aaron Garbut added that in Red Dead Redemption 2 immersion in the virtual world has moved to a new level. “When you first enter the city and see how its residents go about their business, build houses, sell newspapers and just hang around, you immediately say that you have never experienced such impressions from the abundance of details in the open world of the game,” Garbut said. Both developers together said that their goal is to create a world in which gamers will forget what they are playing. They will truly experience a fascinating adventure, and this world will remain forever in their memory, just like Grand Theft Auto 5.
The project Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26 on the Xbox One and PS4.
