Red Dead Redemption 2 will have realistic horse testicle physics
Red Dead Redemption 2 is not far away
The long-awaited sequel to the original and incredibly popular Red Dead Redemption is set to be released on 26 October, and the level of excitement online suggests that it will be one of the most successful games of the year.
For the uninitiated among us, the story of Red Dead Redemption 2 revolves around Arthur Morgan, a member of the Dutch Van der Linde gang. Set in 1899, it will follow your adventures in the Old West and will feature both John Marston and Dutch Van der Linde, the protagonist and an antagonist respectively from the first game.
Forced to flee after a robbery at Blackwater goes wrong, Morgan and the Dutch Van der Linde gang must survive by fighting, robbing and stealing across America.
As is customary with many of Rockstar Games' offerings, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be about as immersive as action-adventure games come, and features the honour system from the original which alters the way non-playable characters and towns react to you based upon your behaviour throughout the game.
There are also plenty of even smaller details which Rockstar haven't scrimped on, including the growth of your character's beard and the degradation of weapons.
One of the most unusual details, which emerged this week, was that your horse's testicles will be affected by the weather.
We already knew that your horse's health and loyalty towards you would be determined by how well you treat it, but it turns out that cold weather will lead your horse's testicles to shrivel up, while warmer temperatures will... well, not.
