New updates for "Red Dead Redemption 2" will feature the protagonist in leaked game details and more microtransactions for the sequel.

It seems that new "Red Dead Redemption 2" details have been revealed as an alleged Rockstar Games insider claimed a 4Chan post that upcoming Wild West sequel will star Jack Marston, the son first game's hero John Marston.

The insider added that the plot of "Red Dead Redemption 2" will take place three years after the first game, and sees Jack piecing together some of the things he finds in his father’s journal after he dies. His efforts ultimately lead him to meet up with a few of John’s friends from the first game, who then revealed a number of secrets about John's past.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" will have its fair share of flashback scenes, such as the one from the reveal trailer involving Dutch’s Gang. Interestingly enough, some of Dutch’s Gang may actually be playable figures in some capacity during these flashbacks, which could lend credence to the speculation that the title involves multiple characters that can be controlled by players and even time skips.

The alleged employee added that in terms of gameplay, "Red Dead Redemption 2" will have a minimum of two mighty sizeable towns for players to explore, and there are apparently a lot of “little places scattered” all throughout the map, which is possibly bigger than "Grand Theft Auto 5."

The sequel will also include heists, allowing gamers to plunder banks, trains, and saloons, with kidnapping also feature. As for the multiplayer, it is speculated that the sequel will be “very economy driven,” allowing players to trade and sell each other items.

Exotic mounts will be featured to boot, such as zebras and buffalo, and gamers can also gain the ability to customise their wagons with gatling guns and other deadly weapons, PlayStation Universe reported.

Meanwhile, Take-two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick stated that "Red Dead Redemption 2" will have more microtransaction than "GTA 5."

Zelnick explained that the company can “do more” in terms of microtransactions “without interfering with their strategy of being the most creative and their ethical approach, which is delighting consumers. He added that they are not going to grab the "last nickel” and they are not trying to optimise the monetisiation of everything they do to the nth degree.”

Moreover, Take-two never wanted to ‘irk’ players or leave them with a “bad feeling.” However, Staruss also noted that the company cannot give stuff away for free in perpetuity; there’s no business model in that.

Zelnick’s comments are unlikely to assure players who say "GTA 5" is too expensive. While Rockstar regularly introduces new content to the game’s "GTA Online" content, which include new game modes, new vehicles and other cosmetics.

Players argue that new items cost too much as the price of some of the new items is so high that it encourages players to grind first before buying, therefore taking the fun out of the game. For casual players it just means that this new, costly content is practically unobtainable, Gamerant reported.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" will launch sometime in 2018 for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
