These animals can be hunted for food or be used to trade and sell them for items.

Hunting in the game will be complex as players must be aware of the factors that will alert animals such as wind direction or making loud noises. Players must also be prepared to encounter animals that fight back or run away and this will bring some difficulty in dealing with them.

Fishing will see players attempt to capture several species across lakes, rivers, and streams. Using the right bait or lure, players can catch fish that can be used to cook meals for increased status or sell them for profit.

The animals in the game share the same characteristics in real life such as deer and bison traveling in herds, sockeye salmon swimming upstream, or a possum playing dead in order to be ignored by hunters.

"RDR2" will launch on October 26 for the PS4 and Xbox One.
