Activities:
• Chess
• Dominos
• Fishing
• Five finger fillet
• Poker

Animals:
• Around 200 species of animals, birds and fish, including (but not limited to):
• Alligators
• Bison
• Bears
• Birds (crows, eagles, turkey vultures)
• Cats
• Raccoons
• Deer
• Dogs
• Fish
• Horses
• Lizards
• Opossums
• Pronghorn
• Wolves

AI:
• Enemy AI will maneuver around you, seek cover, and even climb buildings to gain higher ground.
• NPCs will react to their immediate environment by, for example, leaning on a post.
• Horses will panic during combat, fling riders off their back if threatened, and will remain calm if your bond is high.
• Skittish horses will kick people in the face if they stand too close behind them.
Attention to detail/Misc. info:
• There is a compendium that contains information on animals, and presumably lots of other things like people, objects, items etc that can be read about as you discover them.
• It seems that the majority, if not every building, is enterable.
• Indoors the players speed is throttled (same as in GTA V)
• There is a limit to the amount of items you can carry
• You can pick up peoples' hats and wear them.
• You have to wear hats for a certain length of time before it "becomes yours".
• You can buy tonics to increase the rate at which your hair grows.
• Buying items "could not be more organic", whereby you can walk around a store and pick items up, or browse a catalog instead.
• You can zoom in on catalog items.
• Some products have "hundreds of words" detailing additional information.
• Arthur will occasionally hum songs to himself when walking around.
• You can send and receive mail via a Post Office.
• Every cutscene, battle, interior transition, just like GTA V, does not feature any loading screens.
• Corpses don't simply disappear, but will rot instead.
• Animals you k*lled and carried around will leave bloodstains on your shirt and if you skinned them and placed them on your horse, they will leave your horses hide bloody. They will start to decay after a few in-game days.
• Even the smallest loot will have its pick up animations.
• Steps will leave footprints which will fill up with water if its rainy.
• You can come across famous gunslingers who are listed on cards as the best shooters ever. You can go after them, and collect them like animals.
• Story missions initiate time jumps, and cities and states are built and growing as you progress.
• You have to make decisions quickly, e.g. witnessing someone get robbed, the world doesn't slow down to make it easy for you.


Camera:
• First-person mode confirmed.
• First person mode comes with options like removing the head of the horse you're riding for a less obstructed view.
• Three levels of third-person zoom.
• There's a new cinematic camera which pulls the camera back to a widescreen view and shows action from more dramatic angles.
• Speaking of camera, you can obtain one and take pictures. You are not limited to selfies but can take full-body shots of Arthur.


Camping:
• Hot drinks are available near the campfire, and the camp cook makes a new stew everyday.
• You can sit by the camp fire and socialize with others, sing songs etc.
• Providing provisions and money to the camp will upgrade it and that can result in more meaningful conversations with other members.
• Helping the camp out will expand the types of activities other members will go on with you and will change the stories told around the campfire.
• But Rockstar stress that it's all optional, the camp will survive without you.
• If you upgrade Dutch’s tent in the gang’s camp, you’ll unlock a map at your tent that will let you go to any settlement you’ve previously visited via a cutscene of you riding there.
• You can upgrade Arthur's tent to add new rugs, etc.
• You can sleep and change your clothes in your tent, as well as fast travel.
• In the camp, you can invite your fellow gang members to hunt for supplies, hunt animals and other activities. Beards can be finetuned in the camp.
• Camps cannot be moved at will, they will move with story progress. You can upgrade your camp by spending some money on it.
• Arthur can set up a personal camp for himself to cook food which he can either eat himself, or feed his horse. Loot from enemies and animals is used for crafting and can also be bought from the stores.


Combat:
• Press L1/LB to holster your weapon. Tap it twice and Arthur will spin it round his finger before holstering it (presumably just pistols).
• You can grab people and shove them in different directions (as seen in the trailers, through a doorway for instance).
• You can execute people from behind with your knife.
• Combat feels similar to GTA V but "some players may be surprised how slow the game is. It FEELS like a Western".
• One article mentioned you could dive (unsure if similar to Max Payne 3 for example).
• Dead-eye has 5 levels, from slowing down the time to automatically or manually placing aim points to highlighting critical hit points on animals and NPC's with the option to dual wheel later on.
• Some guns need to have the hammer manually raised before a shot might be fired.
• Blind firing is an option too.
• You can actually break your enemy weapons when shooting them.
• Fist f*ghts require precise timing in order to get a key hit in. Animation work described as impressive.


Consequence:
• NPCs have memory. If you start a f*ght in a saloon and return another day, the bartender will ask you not to start any trouble. Depending on the severity of past actions, they may tell you to leave or call a Sheriff.
• You can encounter an individual more than once.
• NPCs you help may later reward you if you stumble upon them again. One article mentioned sucking venom out of a man's leg, and him later allowing you to choose a free weapon from the gun shop behind him.
• Your appearance has an effect on how others treat you. If you are covered in mud, shopkeepers may refuse to serve you. You can take baths in town to clean your self up or, on request to have a lady bath you instead. Then shopkeepers will allow you back into their stores.
• NPCs can be affiliated. If you k*ll someone, their cousin might come back to avenge them.
• Openly carrying a firearm will elicit different reactions than if you were to approach someone with your weapon holstered.


Crime:
• Every cupboard, stool and desk can be checked. Alcohol, tobacco, cash, food, etc can be collected.
• If you are seen looting something you shouldn't be, you will be attacked or have the Sheriff called on you.
• Arthur will automatically loot everything he sees in robberies by holding down a button.
• You can pull down your bandanna by accessing the face-mask option in the item wheel.
• During the train heist mission they played, you can decide to k*ll the witnesses, let them run, or put them back on the train and send it away. When Arthur k*lls the one of them they all run for their lives.
• Bounty hunters can come after you, and they do want you dead, not captured.


Customization:
• Rockstar's PR team laughed when asked if there's lots of customization options, implying an undeniable "yes".
• You can roll your sleeves up, roll them down, tuck your trousers into your boots, the possibilities for how you present yourself are vast.
• Hair/facial hair grows over time.
• If you want a certain hair/beard style, you must wait until it is long enough (unlike previous titles, you cannot walk into a barber with a bald head and leave with an afro!).
• In order for Arthur to style himself, he must have the appropriate items, such as hair gel bought from stores.
• Beard styles are not limited to short/medium/long, customization allows you to decide how each part of the beard looks (e.g. trimmed sides, mustache flicked upwards, long moustache with stubble, etc).


Gang information
• Gang members will offer to join you on free-roam activities, giving you access to the same kind of a*sistance seen in the story missions, like asking them to go ahead and take out an enemy.
• If you choose to kidnap a rival gang member instead of outright k*lling them, you can persuade them to join your gang (not confirmed whether limited to enemies in Story missions or during free roam too).
• If you're nasty to a fellow gang member, others will take notice and comment on it.
• John Marston is seen as "weak and not well-liked".
• Gang members might die but you can hire new ones throughout the story.
'Focus' Button
• When aiming at someone without a weapon in your hands, you will instead focus on them.
• Focusing at someone allows you to greet them, threaten, attack, grab, and a lot more.
• The options you get depend on the state you are in (if you grab someone, you can then punch them, or let them go for example).
• If you focus at someone with a gun, you can aim at them, fire your gun directly into the sky, etc. Firing into the sky alerts animals (meaning they will stick their head up and allow for an easy k*ll), and as a method of intimidating people).
• You can focus on humans, animals, items in stores, and even yourself if standing in front of a mirror. Arthur will then comment on his appearance "you're getting fat Arthur..."
• Focusing on your horse allows you to brush and feed them.


Horses:
• 19 breeds of horse.
• 59 different styles of coat, and a huge range of customizable tack, including saddles, horns, stirrups, spurs, you can create a horse that is truly your own .
• Horses can be bonded with to learn new skills, like dramatic skid-stops or a dressage side-step.
• You cannot k*ll your horse if you shoot it, but if it dies then it’s permanent and you’ll have to get a new horse and start a new bond.
• Your horse can be healed if fatally wounded, but it will require a special kit.
• You can tell your horse to flee and save its life.
• Your horse can drift and swim.
• You can jump off your horse onto moving trains.
• Horses have unique personalities.
• Horses can move sideways.
• If you take your horse close to a source of water, it'll drink from it.
• Petting your horse increases your bond the most.
• Stashing a dead deer on your horse makes it very noticeably slower.
• Horses will be slower on non-road surfaces.
• Riding with a body on your horse in a town is not a good idea. The writer did so in Valentine and NPC's panicked, ran and yelled "oh my God!".
• You will be able to buy and sell horses in auction stables.
• Dialogue on horseback was recorded twice, characters will speak normally when riding close and yell when they're further away.
• Your horse can lose control, hit a tree or some other object, and drop you off the saddle a few meters in some direction.
• Like in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can name your horse.
• Horses can fart!


HUD:
• the HUD is minimal by default, only showing the mini-map in the bottom left corner, with meters fading in as it becomes necessary.
• An expanded HUD option shows you a larger minimap.
• There's also the option to turn everything off, as well as an option to only have a compass on the screen.
• Current time and temperature are displayed by pausing the game or pressing down on the d-pad.


Hunting:
• Unlike RDR1, skinning an animal shows the full, grisly animation. You see the knife cut and the skin come off the body.
• When done skinning, Arthur had the animals carcass at his feet and a small pelt and some glands in his inventory.
• You are best advised to use a bow in order to remain silent and minimize the damage done to the meat/pelt.
• Shooting, setting on fire, or exploding an animal will severely decrease the amount they're worth to butchers, stores etc.


Movement:
• Movement feels similar to previous titles, e.g. GTA V (walking, sprinting, shooting).
• You can swim, but only above surface.
• You cannot dive into water like GTA V for example.
• Arthur feels heavier to control and "some fans will love it, some fans might not like it". Arthur does not move instantly while controlling but builds up momentum.
• You can roll and dive while shooting in Deadeye mode.


NPC Interaction:
• Some NPC interaction is automatic, such as teasing John about his scars as he walks by.
• Other interaction is manually done by the player (e.g. greeting or complimenting someone).
• Arthur can talk to individuals, or multiple people at the same time (if you greet two people having a conversation for instance, they will both acknowledge you).
• When talking to people, you are not forced to stand still unlike other games (for example, you can pour yourself a coffee and continue a conversation).
• Everyone you meet will react differently. Some people will engage you in conversation, others will tell you to go away. Some NPCs will back down when threatened, others will stand up for themselves.
• You can join ongoing conversations between 2 or more people (e.g. if someone notices you from a previous interaction and mentions you to his friend sat beside him).
• When standing around listening to two NPC's chat about a massacre and a curse, they asked Arthur his thoughts on the matter, which Rockstar say wouldn't have happened if Arthur hadn't lingered around in front of them.

Still on chapter 2. Every time I think about progressing some random sh*t grabs my interest even more

Ran up on a rival gang after finding Black Belle near the swamps.

Called my horse for my rifle but an alligator scared him and he ran through the camp alerting the gang. They instantly locked in on me creeping and it was on

Rescued some guy in the wild and took him to the doctor, I get there there’s nobody in the damn office. I drop the body outside instant crime for a*sault. Had to shoot my way out

Two wolves was about to dismantle some dude. I k*lled the wolves and do you know this n*gga just walked off? No token of appreciation or nothing so you know I had to put one right in the back of his dome

Point is it’s gonna be a while before I finish this game.

In order to avoid being caught doing robbery and mischeif you actually have change clothes and use a different horse than your main. Appears R* made townfolks a lot more observant. I have specific outfit with executioner mask only worn and used for crime. Then I will change clothes and so far everything going smooth.

Got ran up on by some O’Driscoll f*gs. They didn’t know they f**ked with an Arthur who used that gold bar glitch to upgrade all of his guns and ammo. I blew all 8 of their heads off to kingdom come


Riding along after and 12 are in a shootout with outlaws. They ask me to a*sist so I do. After k*lling them all, these b*tches turn their guns on me and try to take me in. Damn shame what I ended up doing to those pigs
