Rockstar Games recently dropped a new trailer for the upcoming open-world Western game, Red Dead Redemption 2. The title is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, but there are a few things present in the trailer that remind us that it needs to be more than just another Rockstar outing.
In fact, Red Dead Redemption 2 most certainly needs to follow-up on what was portrayed in the trailer, but in an integrated way so that many of the things we see actually become playable elements in the game. Obviously, the official website for the game doesn’t guarantee or verify much when it comes to what’s going to make an appearance in the open-world shooter, but this list covers the four things that need to be part of Red Dead Redemption 2 when it releases this fall for PS4 and Xbox One.
4. Bare-Knuckle Brawls
Late in the third trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 we see that there’s a segment in a dark place, lantern-lit, and surrounded by a bunch of rowdy folks looking to see to men beat the living crap out of each other. Now we don’t know if bare-knuckle brawls will actually be in the game or if it’s just a fixture for the latest trailer, but given that you could throw hands in the first two Red Dead games I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to in the third one. What’s more is that Rockstar needs to take cues from Ubisoft’s bare-knuckle mini-game from Assassin’s Creed III and let players travel around the final days of the frontier, fighting for a bit of spare cash and infamy.
