The release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is getting closer and you can be ready to venture into the Old West by loading it and getting ready to go. In addition to a new launch trailer, Rockstar has announced that pre-loading will begin on Friday, October 19 at 12:00 ET / 5:00 am BST, or on Thursday at 9:00 pm. [ Update: Pre-loading is live now.]
In the tweet announcing the pre-load timing, the studio also announced that the launch trailer will be released on Thursday at 10 AM ET 7 AM will be premiere PT. This should be our last long look at the game before it appears on Friday, October 26th. Rockstar gives plenty of time for the pre-load, which is reasonable, as the installation size of RDR2 is huge, as the company has now officially confirmed.
Pre-loading also means that you have preordered, which brings you a cash bonus for the story mode and some bonus GTA $ for Grand Theft Auto Online by GTA 5. Those who have pre-ordered by July 31
It seems that Rockstar has created a huge open world to explore, without lacking in activities and details. You can fish and hunt, your clothes will deteriorate and the dialogue will shift due to your personal hygiene. Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser estimates that it has 500,000 lines of dialogue.
All of these ambitions seem to be costly, because Houser also said that the studio had 100 hours of work to live up to its promise. Later, he made it clear that he is referring only to a few older members of the team who have intensive writing sessions, and that the studio does not expect his team as a whole to spend so many hours.
