Red Dead Redemption 2 Player Finds New Horse In The Most Cinematic Way Possible




It has become widely accepted that Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the best video Games ever created. Rockstar's epic cowboy simulator has an immense line-up, from the wise crackin' Arthur Morgan, to mister "I have a plan" Dutch van der Linde, and the incredibly strong cast of supporting characters. The story is one for the ages while the world building is simply second to none. But another reason why the 2018 Game is so adored is the inimitable sense of atmosphere and emergent moments that can occur.

One great recent example was shared by a player over on the Red Dead Redemption subreddit. And it's like something from a movie, except the scene happens completely naturally. There's no script, no stage direction. Red Dead Redemption 2's systems are just so good that it is able to create one-of-a-kind moments that can stay with the player as a lasting memory.

It goes like this: the player's horse has died. The OP says they were riding through when a bear waylaid them. The rider crashed over a rock and the beast was put down. "Why don't they just use the horse reviver?" you might be asking, but some players just like to play in a way that intensifies the immersion and realism (and also they had just run out of revivers). So the player needs a new horse to help them get back to civilisation. It's high time too since a storm has rolled in and the player is wandering around with their saddle looking for a new mount.

My horse had died, and the storm created an awesome scene for when I found for a new one.

The clouds are dark and heavy, winds drive the rain sideways, and the lighting lends the landscape a cinematic look. Yonder, a horse appears. Morgan approaches strong and firm, yet with patience and reassurance. The Kentucky Saddler appears hesitatant but remains rooted to the spot. Lightning flashes, sending blue arcs down from the sky. It all looks incredible cinematic. But no, it is a video Game and the player controls their immediate destiny. It all seems fated.

The OP thinks they'll name the horse "Bolt" or perhaps "Tempest" and it'll suit the epic conditions in which they found their horse. Red Dead Redemption 2 is full of such moments, generated by the environment, and carefully enabled by Rockstar. Can you remember any moments like this?
