More details about Red Dead Redemption 2 were released on Monday and you can check out the biggest ones here.

On Monday, October 15, more details for "Red Dead Redemption 2" were released and there are some doozies. Check out the top 5 things we learned today.

1

It's 60 hours long

Even for an open world game, 60 hours is really, really long. Most open world games are in the neighborhood of 30-40 hours.

2

The developers cut 5 hours of content

Rockstar Games has said that while the game is 60 hours long, it could have been 65. The devs have cut what they call "superflous" content that would have made the game even longer.

3

It has 300,000 animations and 500,000 lines of dialogue

This makes some sense when you think about how long the game is. Those two numbers are plenty impressive when you think about the work that had to go into getting the dialogue especially.

5
