Red Dead Redemption 2 is a slow game. The opening chapters are the slowest of the bunch, filled with tutorials, deep snow and plenty of riding around in the empty winter months. And it seems that PC players aren't interested in dealing with those things, so they're not creating and using mods that let them skip everything.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was out of PC almost a year after the game was first released on PS4 and Xbox One. This was not a smooth launch, with players reporting performance and crash issues. But for many gamers who can enjoy the RDR2 on the PC without major issues, they decide to skip the first and even second chapters of the game using mods and save files.
Looking at NexusMods.com, a popular website for sharing and downloading user-created mods, the page for Red Dead Redemption 2 is still a bit widespread. rin. But many of the mods available today are about enabling players or saving data to bypass slower opening sections of the game. Combined, these mods have just over 8,000 downloads, with two separate mods each reaching nearly 2,000 each. They are, by far, the most popular offerings on the RDR2 NexusMods page.
There are several reasons for this. One major reason is that many players who purchased the RDR2 on PC were players who had already purchased and played the game on PS4 or Xbox One last year. the beginning, ” a user said in a forum post for one of these intro-skipping mods. Another player left a similar comment on another skip mod. "I've lost the game on PS4. Thank you so much!" It seems clear that many people simply do not want to replay the intro of RDR2 after playing it once or more than just a console.
Honestly, I got it. I loved RDR2 . I still play Red Dead Online regularly. I enjoyed playing the RDR2 on PC, with improved visuals, and on a higher framerate. But then I started playing that intro and I lost a lot of wanting to continue. At the time I was excited to finally play RDR2 . I was happy to see John Marston again and was still thinking about how to play this massive game. But now, a year later, the intro has been feeling really long and slow. I lost my longing and I think I might as well just skip the opening chapter.
And I think as you pass the intro, you can also slap some Joker facepaint on Arthur's face. Modding is a wonderful and awesome thing.
