Houser: Red Dead Redemption multiplay to include "charging around on horses"


Red Dead Redemption is to have multiplayer containing stagecoaches and trains, Rockstar's Dan Houser's told IGN.

"Charging around on horses and stagecoaches and trains, shooting each other in a multiplayer world," said Houser.

"It's pretty epic, but it's not finalized to talk about in any more detail than that. We're still learning a lot as we learn how to do multiplayer games successfully."

Houser said lessons learned on GTA IV would be applied to its upcoming western.

"We definitely feel there's something really fun about third-person multiplayer games, just as we feel there's something really fun with third-person single-player games.

"Even between GTA IV and the Lost and Damned we made quite a leap forward in how the games were structured and how they played and I think we're looking to do that again with everything we do going forward."

The game's out this year.
