In what may come as a surprise to fans of the critically acclaimed fan favorite franchise of crime adventure games Grand Theft Auto, Rockstar has set their proverbial sites on a whole new genre that has rarely been done in the video gaming industry. Aiming to take gamers back in time to the American frontier, Rockstar is set to release a different type of game called Red Dead Redemption that will give gamers a classic cowboys and Indians type of experience the company promises will be unlike anything they have ever experienced before. The title has had a lot of development and was quite research heavy for the development studio which logged hundreds of thousands of hours studying what made the Old West setting unique. Gamers will not only be handling a variety of authentic fire arms from that period of history, they will also need to know how to survive in the environments that the game covers. While it will feature a fictional setting, Red Dead Redemption is true to the general lay out of the American western frontier during the era of cattlemen and tribal clashes with European settlers.
The game will be focused primarily, though, on the cinematic aspects and a carefully crafted storyline that allows movement for gamers to make their own choices, but plays to the general Western theme found in many Hollywood films of the Golden Age of movies, as it is called by critics. The game is expected to do well both in the US and abroad due in part to the subject, but driven largely by Rockstar’s reputation for developing mind blowing adventure games fans love.
