Omkring 200 dyrearter og 19 forskellige hesteracer lever deres liv i Red Dead Redemption 2’s forunderlige verden. Rockstar er klar med masser af smukke billeder fra det vilde west.

En masse heldige spilskribenter har igennem den sidste tid været en smut forbi Rockstar Games for at se og spille Red Dead Redemption 2 i ca. to timer. Det har resulteret i masser af interessante artikler og små hands on previews. Vi var der desværre ikke, så vi må tage til takke med den seneste omgang information fra Rockstar, der til gengæld lyder rigtigt lovende.

Spilverdenen og dyrelivet skulle tages til hidtil uhørte højder, og med cirka 200 forskellige dyrearter, skulle der være massevis af mulighed for at nyde naturen … og derefter slå den ihjel, flå den, smide den på hesten og sælge alt til højest bydende.

Hunting and fishing are essential skills for survival in the wilderness, providing food, materials and a source of income. A huge variety of fish swim the many rivers, lakes and streams, and selecting the right bait or lure is key to a successful day’s haul. Tracking an animal takes focus and patience; move carefully and watch the wind direction or you will alert your prey. Choice of weapon and shot placement are also very important and will affect the quality of the meat and pelt, which in turn affects the price that traders will pay for them. Make sure to pick the right gauge of rifle for the size of animal that you’re hunting, or master the use of the bow for a quiet and clean kill.

After a successful hunt, you can either skin and butcher the animal on the spot or take it with you whole. Just try not to leave it too long or the scavengers will come looking. Skins, parts, meat and entire carcasses can all be loaded onto your horse to be sold to the butchers in town, taken back to camp for the stew pot, or crafted into clothing or other items. Nature amply provides and there is no reason to ever go cold or hungry.

Mon det er en kommende alligator-taske, vi ser bundet til hestens bag?
“Blodspor i sneen” som Søs Fenger synger så smukt i hittet fra 1989 “Holder Øje Med Dig”.
Bambi-simulatoren set fra jægerens synspunkt. Mangt en dyreunge må gå grædende i seng efter den 26. oktober.
Fisk føler ingen smerte. Eller … det gør digitale fisk i hvert fald ikke.

Heste kommer også til at spille en stor rolle, da bilerne endnu ikke var hver mands eje, da Van der Linde-banden havde sin storhedstid. Der skulle være 19 forskellige racer at vælge imellem med hver deres særegenheder.

There are 19 breeds of horse in Red Dead Redemption 2 from Appaloosas and Arabians to Shires to Mustangs, each of which handles differently with its own defined characteristics. Horses can be captured and broken out in the wild, purchased from stables or acquired by more underhanded means, of course.

Your horse is your constant companion, and you will rely on them just as heavily as on any of your fellow gang members so it is important to take good care of your animal. By keeping it groomed and well-fed, you will start to see improvements in stamina, performance and handling and it will become less skittish as the bond grows between you. With 59 different styles of coat, and a huge range of customizable tack, including saddles, horns, stirrups, spurs, you can create a horse that is truly your own, and develop a personal and unique relationship as you explore the world together.

“Jeg børster og strigler min pony
så den bliver blank og sort
så svinger jeg mig i sadlen
og rider langt langt bort
Jubijæ – jubijæ –
og rider langt langt bort”
Mon der kan gemme sig alligatorer i vandet?
Hesten har fået fri, så Arthur Morgan må selb slæbe sine døde dyr rundt.

Du har en måned og én dag tilbage til Red Dead Redemption 2 overtager verdensherredømmet. På Xbox One og PlayStation 4. For hvem ville dog også have en PC-version!?!
