Depending on your situation at hand, some weapons can particularly come in handy than the others. For example, when you are riding a horse, the double-action revolver will be a good shot. In a close range combat sawed-off shotgun is the best choice for firepower.

When hunting a small game, varmint rifle is what you need for not causing much damage to the meat and skin of your prey. In general, all types of rifle can be fitted with scopes to leave it up to player's choice whether they want regular or scoped aiming.

Situations may escalate enough to go out of hand and then the Dead Eye system comes in handy. It will slow down time and let you mark your targets before you shoot 'em down by hitting a fatal point of your enemy. So, use them very carefully.

Arthur Morgan is allowed to pick his own cloths, choose his food, keep a beard and carry the guns he wants. There will still be countless chores to do and many secrets to find out about. Actions will have consequences and that will clearly reflect in the gameplay.

Red Dead Redemption 2 First-Person Mode

Starting from launch, Rockstar Games will let player enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2 in first-person mode.

Although upcoming Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games is originally conceived to play from a third-person perspective, an additional first-person mode has been added.

This will let players venture into the far side of Wild West throughout the whole game and experience every events more up close. The studio says, everything ranging from fistfights, gunfights, horse riding or even conversations are available in first-person.

Since the game is currently set to launch on consoles, a simple press to the controller's touchpad will let you choose between cinematic camera angles, first-person and third-person mode whenever you want to.

However, chores aside, cut scenes won’t be changed for different whether you are on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. That being said, if first-person mode doesn't change anything in overall, it will at least deliver players a new feel to experience at a much deeper level.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Reveal

For example, when you play as Arthur Morgan in first-person, try to bond with your steed because it is super important for your gameplay, let that be riding your horse or just simply taking care of it.

From time to time, dust and dirt will add up to its coat and it is up to you to clean it up to steer clear of reduced stats. If you try to "study" it while brushing its coat, you will notice through the direct perspective that how much details are put there into every aspect of this game.

Engaging someone in combat will be felt more confronting and engaging, riding a horseback will never be the same. Developers have prior knowledge of the mode from their experimenting with Grand Theft Auto V in the past, which was launched in 2013 without the mode being added.

Another experience Rockstar is implementing on the game from GTA V is the multiplayer component the intended for RDR2 as Red Dead Online, which goes live in public beta from November 2018.

RELATED: Red Dead Online Announced

Set to launch on PS4 and Xbox One consoles, Red Dead Redemption 2 release date being set for October 26, 2018. Despite the game not featuring any fast-paced action sequence or any car chases, players can really enjoy the mode for a change.

Something tells us that, Rockstar Games may even release a patch for the original Red Dead Redemption to render the entire game available in first-person and let players go back to that title to explore everything from a different perspective.

Red Dead Online Announced

Rockstar Games announced Red Dead Online, an open world multiplayer experience for upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2.

When Rockstar Games released Red Dead Redemption for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles back in 2010, it had its own online multiplayer, where players could try out a several different modes in the open world of the game with friends.

Today, they have announced the vast multiplayer component for their upcoming Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2, which will initially launch in November 2018 as a public beta with more features to explore.

The cooperative play, Red Dead Online will not come out at the same time with RDR2 which is releasing on October 26, 2018 to avoid issues. When GTA Online was initiated, it delivered players a few frustrating weeks of gaming experience and Rockstar have learned valuable lessons from their past mistakes.

Another reason would be to deliver a standalone, unique feel of its own. Anyone who would own a copy of RDR2 will be able to access RDO public beta a month later on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Reveal

Both Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online will use the same gameplay mechanics yet deliver a completely separate sense of playing. Though already pretty massive, the main game will offer a single-player journey that is mostly stationary.

On the other hand, players will get new content updates and fixes to keep things interesting in the long run. Because of these alterations, there could be problems during the launch and Rockstar Games is staying steer clear of that.

RDR2 is actually a prequel and happens to be biggest release of the company since they launched Grand Theft Auto V in 2013. So, they will follow up a month after with RDO and the beta will point out which areas they need to focus their efforts on.

Players will probably get to enjoy some real competitive modes like Grand Theft Auto Online regularly offers though their steady stream of updates. Since possibilities are near limitless in online multiplayer, it will surely be fun to watch.
