Activities and Side Mission Discussion

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen a thread made for this, if there has been I'll close this one. 

But what type of activities and side missions does everyone think there will be, obviously with the same activities from the original RDR. And of course there's going to be fishing, what other new activities does everyone think there will be? 

And will there be a return of stranger missions? Of course, from the gameplay video,  Jimmy Brooks was dangling over the edge of a cliff and you have the choice to save him or kill him, killing him will definitely shorten the mission time, LOL and saving him can trigger a new line of tasks and missions to complete. That is if it has nothing to do with the main storyline. 

I'd definitely like to see more and new activities be introduced in order for players to have more to do.

I read somewhere that the bodies of slain npcs will stay where you leave them.  If this is true, I have big, big plans.

Side missions have always suffered from inadequate reward structure, in my experience.  Ideally, they'll look to have a diverse array of side missions without feeling too gimmicky.

I too am curious about these plans. It is for research purposes. 

As for the topic, from what I gathered the side missioned will mostly be made up of helping your camp members. Like, gather items, food, weapons, and things like that.

Purely for strategic purposes.  If you are familiar with the Dark Horse comic series Preacher (specifically, The Patron Saint of Killers at Monument Valley) or have read the novel World War Z (The Battle of Hope, NM), it isn't hard to figure out what I'm thinking of.

The activities that are already confirmed are, i think, fishing, hunting, dueling, poker (plus other games?), bounty hunting. The trailer said about rival gangs, so i'm guessing we will be able to infiltrate their bases like in RDR1. I would imagine horse racing and horse breaking will also be re-introduced given the much upgraded horse mechanics. Maybe bar fighting, like in Witcher 3 where you could brawl for money and become the champ?

i guess we'll learn more about the side activities in the next trailer.

I'm sure there will be a lot of games to play like in the last one. Horseshoe tossing, darts, and other games of that nature to go with poker. There was the one with the knife and stabbing the table between the fingers, I can't remember the name of it. I am sure it will be back.

I earned tens of thousands from poker so I'm glad that's back in. Will it be online? Highly doubtful due to gambling restrictions (discussed somewhere in another thread) which is a shame.

I want Liar's Dice back. If they don't have that in the game I will be very disappointed. I don't know if it was confirmed or not. 

Never could fathom the rules for that game.

They should allow it among gang members at the very least. Like have it where you can play your friends on your campsite or something.

It's possible that it would be online actually, if you are only gambling between players. That way there's always an even balance of money (ie you;re not taking it from the bank, you're taking it from other players). As there is already betting in GTAO there is actually, thinking about it, a very high chance it could be in RDRO.
