Well, it’s here and strange as heck!
The online multiplayer Red Dead 2 seems to have a weird start.
I mean RDR2 single player feels very different to RDR2 online and totally different from RDR1 multiplayer which of course is one of the best multiplayer setups in a game to date.
The instances for online missions is ok i guess but i really don’t like being forced to join up with others to play a mission especially a mission one never has done before.
Worst yet, having to join up with some fellow gunslingers to progress through a mission for online unlocks, without the availability of solo play progression.
Where are the gang hideout gunfight plays like in the first RDR multiplayer?
I read online that they are there but none have triggered for me so far. Maybe i must progress further in the online missions. Not sure yet.
No private or passive free roam.
One may be unfortunate enough to stumble upon an online session filled with little kids yelling like retards going in an instant kill fest especially for new spawned players.
This of course ruins the whole gaming experience online.
Affordability has gone crazy.
Everything from single player to online costs 3 to 4 times as much and making money online. Not to mention one makes very little loot from various activities and it is tedious work. Many hour one will have to put in just to afford a new saddle.
This may be no mistake as it makes way for Rockstar’s micro-transactions like the GTA5 shark cards. Nice way to piss off many gamers again.
Is it too early to complain? Sure, it could be but like always i doubt any major overhaul of righteous updating will happen anytime.
Also, have fun spending 900 hours to reach level 50, which would be a pleasure if the online experience currently didn’t suck bad.
At least we have Read Dead Redemption 1 multiplayer (in HD 1080p or 4K) thanks to Xbox One X enhanced.
