Dont hate me, Slim
FIVE DAYS LEFT!!!
USA Release Date: May 18th, 2010
UK Release Date: May 21st, 2010

ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE GAME, JUST POST AND ASK.
Most people know how excited i, and several other users are for this game to be released. We already know a lot about the game. Here is some of the info we know so far:
MAP

INFO:
You play as "John Marston"
- Marston is the only character you play as
- Marston's health recovers
- Marston's health is represented by the amount of blood on the screen.
- There is some customization in Marston's appearance
- There are fifteen outfits available in game, one that you start with (“Cowboy Outfit”) and fourteen that you can unlock or buy.
- Cowboy Outfit: John's usual bounty hunter clothing
- Elegant Suit: A classy white suit with white gloves and a tail coat that lets John heat at poker
- Legend of the West Outfit: A suit with a long brown duster
- Bandito Outfit
- Walton's Gang Outfit

- It may be possible to add and remove some elements of Marston's outfit. The Elegant Suit has been seen with and without gloves and his Cowboy outfit has been seen on separate occasions with a poncho (either with a hat and a headband), a duster and chaps.
- Marston may be able to get his hair cut
- There are accessories that Marston is able to wear for a gameplay benefit
- The only confirmed one is a bandanna, which helps Marston evade capture if he commits a crime while wearing one
- Owns a campsite. This is the saving system
- Can set up camp anywhere in the wilderness
- Setting up camp shows Marston sitting and relaxing from a cinematic camera, while on screen you have the option to travel to a destination you've been to (A button) or save (Y button)
- Can upgrade the campsite from a simple fire and poking stick to more luxurious conditions, such as a tent
- upgrades can play a part in gameplay.
- Marston keeps an inventory in his bag. It is separated into at least three categories: Consumables, Kit and Provisions.
- His kit seems to be his equipment. What his Consumables and Provisions are is unknown. A guess would be Consumables are things meant to be bought and sold and Provisions are things that he has a finite amount of.
- Marston can have a variety of items to aid him in his journeys. Some of this equipment is listed here:
- Campsites: Used to save, refill ammo and fast travel to previously visited destinations
- Bandoliers: Either in a single or dual variety. Belts that hold ammo. Likely to be functional.
- Bandana: A helpful disguise for evading law enforcement
- Newspapers: Contain various news stories describing the current events in the area and can be used to pick up side objectives. Even Marston's various exploits will be recounted here.
- Monocular/binocular: Helpful to look out in the distance.
- Treasure maps: Rough sketches of landmarks where Marston can find treasure
- Wanted posters: Drawings and photographs of fugitives who can be captured or killed for a reward
- Other items with unknown purposes include a survival map, a rabbit's foot, a Pleasance Deed, a Letter from Sam, a sacred relic, a treasure box and a Nosalida package.
- There is a limit on how many of each piece of equipment you can carry
- Marston controls and feels very similar to Niko, though he moves a little faster and a little more fluidly
- In combat scenarios Marston runs at the push of the analog rather than walking as usual.
- Marston can drink in saloons and bars and can get so drunk he passes out for a few hours
- A drink in a saloon is $2
- Getting drunk and bumping into someone may start a duel
- To an extent, weapons and ammunition are represented on the character model.
- Carries a journal which lists current challenges.
- Cannot swim. Water kills Marston.
- The pause menu has: Map, Weapons, Outfits, Journal, Options, Stats, Cheats, Multiplayer, Social Club, Leaderboards, Game
- The pause menu also has a pocket watch that gives the date and time in the top right corner. It also shows how
much money John has.
- Marston can buy or rent rooms in towns
- Consuming medicine and meat can help Marston when he's in critical condition
- Marston can smoke.
- Marston can run along the top of trains.
MULTIPLAYER:
- You can play as both males and females
- Online supports up to 16 players.
- Scoring points, killing folks and doing special actions (like killing a grizzly with a knife) earn you XP
- XP can be used to buy clothes and items for your character, and it raises your level
- There is a level cap of 50
- All the dynamic content of the map is present in multiplayer
- Dead-Eye works in Multiplayer, where players can mark targets without slowing time down.
- Dead-Eye gets charged by pickups
- Green pickups are Dead-Eye
- Can also recharge Dead-Eye by killing people
- Weapons picked up stay in inventory until the end of the match, allowing for a large arsenal
- White pickups are Ammo
- The lobby is the game's freemode, which allows players to roam freely and enjoy the full interactivity of the map.
- While in the lobby players can form posses. Up to 8 plays can be in a single posse, including the leader
- The leader can set waypoints to travel to which show up on the whole posse's minimap
- Completing challenges give the player XP
- There is a level cap of 50
- XP is marked at the bottom of the screen
- Leveling up unlocks new factions and characters available to play as, as well as opening up new titles for you to use.
- Factions available to play as are Miners, Rebeldes, Dutch's Gang, Walton's Gang, Cattle Rustlers, American Army, Federales, Lawmen and Marshalls. Each faction has a variety of characters to play as.
- Committing crimes in multiplayer gets you a bounty, same as single player. The lawmen will target only you, not your posse.
- There are a variety of competitive gametypes that include:
- Shootout: Free-For-All
- Gang Shootout: Team Deathmatch
- In both Shootout modes players are only visible on the minimap when they run or shoot.
- Gold Rush: Collect bags of gold scattered around the map and deposit them in chests for points
- Can carry one or two bags at a time. Carrying two slows you down considerably.
- Each bag is worth one point. 10 points win.
- Hold Your Own: Capture-the-flag
- Teams have to steal the other team's loot bag and bring it to their own base.
- Sudden Death is a team deathmatch.
- Team horse races
- There are other gametypes that haven't been revealed yet
- Competitive games are started by going to a certain location on the map.
- The game types desired can be queued into a playlist so they start automatically
- Competitive matches start with standoffs. Team games feature two teams facing off. Free for all games start with a large Mexican standoff
- Whoever wins the standoff gets an early lead on grabbing weapons and vantage points while the losers respawn randomly around the map
- Competitive matches use fenced off portions of the map.
- Much more streamlined and compartmentalized than GTA IV's, which is better suited for the 16 player gameplay
- Emphasis on group activity, with players able to work together to take down gangs, wipe out towns and hunt game.
- Can lasso and hogtie other players
- You have a default steed called by pressing 'Up'. The higher your level the better the steed. Low level players will get donkeys.
- A bull is unlockable
- If the default mount dies it will respawn a few minutes later

Because it's not ours to change, ALSO TYLER, that map is only 1/3 of the map silly.

here's the second part which is basically south of the border

VIVA MEXICO

They still have yet to officially reveal the third portion.

Yea I was going to point that out too
They should be releasing the third part of the map soon as well as another video this week.
I'm wondering where the third area is going to be, north or south of the two currently released areas

I have a sneaking suspicion that it will be northeast of hennigan's stead, just judging by how that has a clearly defined border, they might use rivers to split up the map.

They have yet to show the map for the northern snowy regions, so I expect you to be correct Alg. Still, looking forward to it.

A bull? You can ride a bull? Probably going to be the last unlock.

Rockstar confirmed on twitter that they're going to reveal the last part of the map this week (obviously)

ALSO bull riding is a small mini game, think along the lines of finding a bull at a ranch, lassoing him, and trying to stay on for 8 seconds. However if it is a usable mount, call me Mongo.
