Red Dead Redemption 2: What There Is to Do Apart From The Main Story

If you are a video gaming fan, most probably, you have heared about Red Dead Redemption 2. Released in 2018 by Rockstar Games, it quickly became one of the most played games of all time. RDR is a third entry in the Red Dead series, and, at the same time, a prequel to Red Dead Redemption launched in 2010. But when the main story ends what else can you do? Our team has gathered the list of main activities besides the main story. But first, let’s talk about the game and its plot for a little bit. 

Red Dead Redemption 2: Gameplay, Main Story, and Other Game Characteristics

Red Dead Redemption’s events are set in the Western World and happen in 1899 in the USA. You will follow the story of Arthur Morgan, one of the members of the Van der Linde gang. His main goal is to survive in the fast-paced world: the time of Wild West and its rules are passing, so you need to survive against different groups of people, including rival gangs, government forces, and others. 

RDR 2 can be played from both third and first-person perspectives. There are tons of gameplay elements, including dangerous horse riding, different kinds of non-players characters interactions, robberies, hunting, and so on. The game is available to play on four platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and Google Stadia. In addition, there are single-player and multiplayer modes.
