Red Dead Redemption 2: Different Horse Breeds for Different Terrains and Environments

Red Dead Redemption 2 is just a month away now after we have been getting overwhelming reveals about the extensive features of the game. Although the graphics have been reported to have such a high amount of detail that even the testicles of the horses would tend to the weather conditions of the game. However, the horses altogether have been given far-reaching features as well.

The horses in Red Dead Redemption 2 are going to be one dynamic element of the game as the there are plenty of aspects to them. For starters, 19 breeds of horses have been declared for Red Dead Redemption 2 by the Rockstar Games on Twitter:

There are 19 breeds of horse in Red Dead Redemption 2 from Appaloosas and Arabians to Shires to Mustangs, and each handles differently with its own characteristics. Horses can be captured and broken out in the wild, purchased from stables or acquired by more underhanded means.

Players would be able to get a hold of horses from the wild which can be tamed to make a better bond between the character and the horse. The more a horse is tamed in Red Dead Redemption 2 more beneficial it is to the players as a bonding could even result in the character having lesser chances of getting hit while riding on a horse with good bodning. Moreover, this could improve the overall strength, stamina, and speed of the horse.

Additionally, every breed from the total 19 breeds of horse have distinct characteristics in RDR2 which would mean that players shall behave with each breed in a style which best suits it rather than generic horse taming.

Furthermore, every horse could be made for certain environments in the game and each horse breed could be better suited to a specific landscape. Each breed would not be out there in the wilds of the Red Dead Redemption 2 open world. Players would have to properly buy some of the horses as well from the stables.

On the other hand, Red Dead Redemption 2 is also going to present to us over 200 different animals. As the release of the game nears us we get more intimate with the steps Rockstar Games has taken to make it more real time in terms of gaming experience such as hairgrowth.
