Red Dead Redemption 2 Will Have A Slower Pace Compared To Grand Theft Auto V

Red Dead Redemption 2

It might seem like a given considering what kind of game Red Dead Redemption 2, a Western style action-adventure game with single and multiplayer features, but it will have a slower pace compared to Grand Theft Auto V. Given the era in which it takes place, the Wild West of America in 1899, it was a different time then.

According to RockstarIntel, “the game has a much slower pace in comparison to Grand Theft Auto V because it will ‘play like a western.'” Aside from that, GTA V takes place in the modern world where fast cars, clubs, and turf wars took place. Plus, it’s an entirely different type of game. Red Dead Redemption 2 on the other hand has two main mode of transportation – horseback and walking – aside from larger modes of transit like carriages and trains. Unsurprisingly, the community is okay with this:

Players assume the role of Arthur Morgan, a member of the Dutch Van der Linde gang, and must do what it takes to survive in the unforgiving Wild West. After a robbery goes south in the town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and his friends flee the hands of law. The incident tears rifts between the members and Arthur Morgan must make the choice of remaining loyal to the folks that raised him, or make the difficult choice and chase his own ideals.
