The action takes place in 1899 in the Western, Southern and Midwestern parts of the United States, where you as the player take the role of Arthur Morgan, who is a member of the Van der Linde gang.

In Red Dead Redemption 2, it is crucial to take care of the well-being of your character as some of his needs influence the system called cores which affects the regeneration of stamina. Remember to wear clothes suitable for the weather, and to eat accordingly as too much food causes obesity. Take care of your image, shave the beard or cut your hair, as the games very realistic even when it comes to such small details as hair growth. Additionally, you have to make sure that your weapons are in good condition as they also require maintenance.
The core fighting system is, of course, typically for the Wild West, focused on guns. The character gets more experienced with the particular weapon the more he uses it. The Dead Eye mechanic allows you to slow down time to mark targets and when the time of marking ends the character shoots the places that were targeted.
Be careful with committing crimes as when somebody spots you, they immediately report you to the police station. Thus the law enforcement starts the investigation, and in order to avoid being captured, you have to well ... somehow stop the witnesses. However, if you still commit more crimes the bounty hunters will be sent to kill you.
Red Dead Redemption 2 received universal acclaim for its rich world, stunning audiovisuals, a great number of interactions, its story and many of its sophisticated mechanics.
