Gorgeous Red Dead Redemption Time Lapse

If there’s anything to say about Red Dead Redemption besides its great story, gameplay and endless fun diversions, it’s that the game is simply beautiful to behold. Once you’ve played it, it’s hard not to admire the stunning vistas, the sweeping landscapes and the wonderfully detailed terrain. The guys at Rockstar really put together one fantastic world.

Which is why it’s so exciting to see that Eurogamer has put together this excellent Red Dead Redemption time lapse video. Apparently, if you leave your controller alone for several minutes, the game slips into an awesome afk mode, which then presents you with some preset camera angles. They recorded several days of game time from these and then produced something wonderful. It shows just how gorgeous the game really is to look at, and I still can’t help but marvel at it, even when I play.

Give it a watch!

If you want to know more about the process by which this whole thing was put together, head over to Eurogamer. They’ve even got some examples from other open world games like Crackdown, Assassins Creed 2 and Fallout 3.

  1. This is part of the reason why RDR is my current game of the year. Even the barren outback is more lively than Liberty City.

    Also, why is water so damn good looking in this game if you can’t swim?

  2. The thing that makes me so giddy about this video is simply this. If RDR can look this good, Imagine what the next TES game is going to look like. I mean Oblivion blew minds…..imagine the next one if we have come that far since then. I mean really, Bethesda likes to go all out on the TES games. Think about what it will look like. Super cool
