Red Dead Redemption 2: 10 Things We're Hoping To See

Red Dead Redemption 2's release date slowly approaches. With each passing month, our excitement for the game continues to grow; October 26 couldn't come sooner. Rockstar's latest epic possesses a distinct mystique because of how little we know about it even six months away from its release. However, the minimal knowledge we have about the game doesn't stop us from discussing what it needs to do to surpass the original. Here are 10 things we want from Red Dead Redemption 2.
As previously revealed, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the original RDR. In a press release, Rockstar wrote that the game tells the "story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive."
Much of what we want to see stems from specific narrative details we'd love to hear more about. After all, early trailers have indicated the game to be a prequel to the original, so we're holding out to see if the game might feature a young John Marston. We're also hoping the game will make good on further improving gameplay, like more sidequests, refined shooting mechanics, and expanded online functionality.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to release on October 26 for PS4 and Xbox One. However, as with the first game, Rockstar hasn't announced any plans for a PC version. Hopefully, as with Grand Theft Auto V, we'll eventually see the game also make its way to PC and Steam. As for the release date itself, it's been delayed in the past, but Rockstar parent company Take-Two has said it is "confident" that the game won't have another setback.
