Red Dead Redemption 2’s wildlife detailed in new update


Oh, the animals you'll see...

The latest Red Dead Redemption 2 update is all about in-game wildlife.

“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,” Rockstar said in the update.

“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. The wilderness is at once a bountiful and perilous place, for both man and beast, and any predator can quickly turn prey.”

We’ve got a small gallery of wildlife you can expect to see below.
