Red Dead Redemption - Saddle Up!

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 03:55 AM MDT | By Zidane
Update: Hey guys, just wanted to inform the masses of a new sub-forum I've set up for Red Dead Redemption. Go and visit the forum here! Form a posse for online games, discuss what you'd want to see in a sequel, and more!


----------

Rockstar have sent us some Red Dead Redemption goodies on launch day! Included are a pair of special edition Red Dead Redemption dice in a special leather case, a bar of western soap, (perfect for washing away blood and manure), some stickers, Red Dead playing cards, a t-shirt, and some dynamite candles. Check below to see these items, along with a picture of the (heavily crowded) Bristol, CT GameStop during Red Dead's midnight launch.



----------



Hey everyone! I know GTA news is still a little slow at the moment, so I thought I'd let you all know that Red Dead Redemption will be released in just two days. Red Dead Redemption is by Rockstar Games, the same people who made the GTA series, meaning Red Dead plays a lot like a brand new GTA game, but dare I say it, a little better. It even uses the same engine as Grand Theft Auto IV, so you'll feel comfortable with the game and its controls from the start. I was lucky enough to get to experience the game, and to be honest, I was blown away... by the graphics, the very smooth movements of your character (SUCH an improvement over GTAIV), the sounds, the characters, and really the overall atmosphere of the game. By the time you're roaming the first town, you'll be thinking, "Holy ****, this is going to be a while".

So in a nutshell, if you're craving a new GTA, complete with online action (and I know you are), you can sate yourself with this one.

The game will be released midnight of the 17th in the US, and the 21st in Europe. There's still time to reserve yours! :)

Pre-order Information

GameStop - US / Game - EU

If you pre-order, you will receive the Special Edition, which includes "The Deadly Assassin Outfit", the Red Dead Redemption soundtrack, exclusive challenges and more.

Sorry to be a buzz kill. but red dead redemption was NOT made by the same people that make grand theft auto. Rockstar san diego made read dead. Rockstar North at Scotland makes GTA. just beacuse they share the name and publisher doesnt mean its the same team of people working on it. non the less. it should be a terrific game.

UKeTommyV, that depends on what you consider when saying "made" as Red Dead Redemtion uses the same game engine as GTA IV (RAGE, made by Rage Technology Group at Rockstar San Diego with contributions by Rockstar North)

But, if you are considering it by the developement, then I`d say it`s not made by the same people, but they have a finger in each others work (eww)

Anyway,I thing I would said it`s made by the same people, as all Rockstar company`s are owned by Take-Two Interactive, so basically it`s made by the same people :P

But enough of that, I`d didn`t write all that to start a debat, but to say that you might be wrong :P

Now, who`s excited for the game ? :D
I am.

The game looks fantastic. And after reading about the general improvements on the engine and such over GTA IV, I'm just that more excited. But sadly, I'm running on my gaming PC and I don't have a console to play it with =[

hopefully R* will follow their usual routine and release it for PC in a few months or so.

FIS, yes it has the same engine as gta iv and the engine was developed by rockstar san diego and north. The houser brothers had a hand on this game for about 2 months (game was made in about 3 and a half years if i remember correctly) so it definetly has that gta brand on it however to be fair for both rockstar san diego and rockstar north. the game was pretty much developed by san diego. putting norths reputation on the line and at the same time not giving san diego the props for this is not the best thing to do. Anyway, im pretty excited about this game. cant wait.

It's being marketed as "from the people who brought you GTA IV". GTA has a lot more recognition than just Rockstar San Diego so Rockstar/Take-2 are using that as a selling point. They want people to say I like GTA, and they also made this so it must be good. For those of us that know the details a little better we're not so easily fooled, but San Diego looks to have done a superb job in living up to the GTA / Rockstar name. I'm anxiously awaiting this game.

Besides, one thing that's not being mentioned, yes Rockstar San Diego are making this game, whilst North made GTA IV, but hey, Rockstar NYC are heavily involved in both games as all Media Production for these games are done there, audio, scripting, dialogue, etc is all NYC's department as well as marketing.

I assume it will be ported to PC within 6 months to a year
I haven't heard anything definite but given what rockstar has done with GTA in the past it would be likely they'd do the same for Red Dead Redemption
