Red Dead Redemption 2 is evidently shaping up to be one of Rockstar's most detailed and ambitious open-world experiences yet, but as you'd expect, that comes at a significant cost.

According to Dan Houser, the game's protagonist, Arthur Morgan, had a second love interest. Most major retailers are targeting the $69 mark, which is miles better than paying nearly $100 for the standard edition through the Microsoft Store. "We removed a mission on a train where you had to deal with bounty hunters, because it was fun at first, but then it wasn't". November's Red Dead Online is a whole new ballgame.

"We don't bring in name actors anymore due to their egos and, most important of all, because we believe we get a better sense of immersion using talented actors whose voices you don't recognise".

"This part of the process is always about compromise and horse trading".

The number of characters in the game required 1200 actors, all of them SAG-AFTRA, 700 of whom have dialogue, which meant 2,200 days of motion-capture work. I guess that explains why each NPC has 80-page scripts.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, although it's been a long time coming. For those that don't know, there are over 200 species of animals in Red Dead Redemption 2, so this trophy could take quite some time to complete and its only bronze.

What do you think about this news? Are you planning to pass on the Western title?

From the Red Dead Redemption 2 trophy list we can see numerous challenges that look intriguing, such as the "Gold Rush" trophy which can only be unlocked when the player has earned 70 or more gold medals from storyline missions.
