Introducing the Wildlife of Red Dead Redemption 2


In the lead up to the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on October 26, we are revealing new information and images of the game’s complex ecosystem. Around 200 species of animal populate the world across a diverse array of habitats and climates .

The diverse habitats and climates of Red Dead Redemption 2 are home to around 200 species of animals, birds and fish, all of which behave and respond to their environment in a unique way. Deer, bison and pronghorn traverse the plains in large herds, scavengers quickly sniff out carrion, sockeye salmon leap upstream, wolves attack in packs surrounding their prey, geese fly in fixed formations, possums play dead, rodents scamper into tree hollows, grizzly bears bluff charge when threatened, and birds of prey soar on thermals. They all form part of a complex ecosystem and must continually fight for their place on the food chain.
