Game News Red Dead Redemption: everything you didn’t know about the saga
Red Dead Redemption is the famous western saga created by Rockstar Games. His technique and his writing are no longer to be presented, as they marked the players with a hot iron. Here are 34 secrets of these legendary games.
The genesis of the Cowboys made in Rockstar
Red Dead Redemption is developed by Rockstar San Diego, based in Carlsbad, California, in collaboration with Rockstar North, based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Originally, the saga started with Red Dead Revolver. The first Red Dead Redemption has six years of development with a budget of $100 million. Dan Houser, the game’s screenwriter, wanted to illustrate a typical Wild West of the collective imagination, bit by bit eaten away by modern industry. That’s why Houser watched lots of westerns to get a global vision of a very codified genre. The development team also conducted a lot of research on the era, but also moved directly to historic locations. The game uses the RAGE engine, like GTA 4. The game was first announced for February 4, 2009, but was delayed to April 2010.
Upon its release, Red Dead Redemption was a hit and received critical acclaim, to the point of being named Game of the Year at the Video Games Awards. In August 2015, Take-Two announced that the game had sold over 14 million copies. The title will be entitled to a horrific DLC with zombies: Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare. Its sequel, Red Dead Redemption II, was released in 2018 and takes place twelve years before its predecessor, in 1899. The project began shortly after the release of the first opus. Once again, it is the consecration on the side of the critics, qualifying the game as exceptional. Red Dead Redemption 2 is the most nominated game with 8 nominations and the most awarded with no less than 4 awards at the Game Awards 2018 ceremony. Unfortunately for him, it’s God of War (2018) which wins the title of best game of the year. Despite this, Red Dead still remains a mythical video game saga today, especially for its original setting and bewildering technique.
