Social Analytics Firm Shows Red Dead Redemption 2's Dominance

Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare

Today we're excited to announce Red Dead Online, a new online connected experience set against the backdrop of Red Dead Redemption 2's enormous open world. Beware, however, you may run into some hostile situations upon finding the culprits, so get ready for a fight (or a match of Poker).

Kotaku's Jason Schreier recently published a lengthy and interesting investigative piece looking into the working conditions at Rockstar Games. Thankfully, Red Dead Redemption 2 has included a fast travel system, but there's a bit of a catch.

Seriously, just look at that view.

A growing beard on your character that you need to shave? What does it even do?

The frame-rate for Red Dead 2 also stands out on Xbox One, with a locked 30 FPS that outpaces the occasional dropped frames in busy areas like towns. It's just as it sounds.

Pogba admits he may have to alter penalty approach after Pickford save
Martial has had to wait patiently for opportunities at Old Trafford but appears to have finally won over his manager. However, the United team news was leaked ahead of last Saturday's draw with Chelsea and it proved correct.

And of course, PC players had to wait nearly 19 months from the initial launch of Grand Theft Auto V on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 before the game became available for Windows.

Another handy feature for the RDR2 lore-obsessed player is Arthur Morgan's journal. I read about the game a whole lot-highfalutin academic papers weren't quite the same as getting to play it, but they came close.

Rockstar's companion app for Red Dead Redemption 2 seems to contain references to a PC version of the game, as RockstarIntel reports.

Each upgrade costs money, with further upgrades costing more. More contaminant than the physical edition of the book, a one-time fee grants you access to a complete guide that mirrors the physical edition (only with more clickable links to helpful pages).
