Once "Red Dead Redemption 2" has been confirmed to release by Rockstar Games, the gaming community was excited knowing that the much anticipated sequel is finally happening. However cool the arrival of another "Red Dead" game seems, fans still hope that there will be changes in the game that would make it all the more interesting.

Cowboys vs. Zombies

The "Red Dead" franchise has always been loved by gamers because of it being a Western-themed first-person shooter video game. But now that zombies are popular in every game and movie, some fans hope that there would be a zombie-related gameplay in "Red Dead Redemption 2." It could be that the zombie feature would be somewhat of an expansion to the game.

Online Multiplayer Experience

There were rumblings about "Red Dead Redemption 2" having an online multiplayer mode, just like Rockstar Games' other hit title, "Grand Theft Auto Online." It turns out that Rockstar might deliver just that hinting that players will be introduced to a "vast and atmospheric world" that will serve as "the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience."

A World Full Of Life

It's undeniable that the world in "Red Dead" games is designed beautifully, but overall, it needs to have more life. As noted in a report by Red Bull, "Red Dead Redemption 2" would be better if it becomes a lively sandbox for players that feature random shootouts or a random bar brawl that players can witness.

Change of Scenery

"Red Dead Redemption 2" is expected to bring bigger and better gameplay and that would happen when players get to have a change of view. The sequel should allow players to travel to different counties to get different settings.


"Red Dead Redemption" fell short when it comes to customization. It would be great if the protagonist will get to change his outfit in "Red Dead Redemption 2." Besides customizing the look of the character, it could also be awesome if players can also customize guns to make it more personal.

Then again, the abovementioned are just part of a wishlist for the game sequel. Fans will soon know what the game will be about. "Red Dead Redemption 2" arrives in fall 2017.
