Learn the secrets of Red Dead Redemption 2's player locomotion at GDC

Sign up now for GDC 2020, where Rockstar Games' Mike Jones will walk you through the creative and technical choices made to create the locomotion systems and distinctive walk of Arthur Morgan!

Rockstar's 2019 hit Red Dead Redemption 2 is defined by its attention to detail, down to the unique pace at which protagonist Arthur Morgan moseys, and at the Game Developers Conference you'll get a rare behind-the-scenes look at how Rockstar designed and integrated such a seemingly simple system.

In a special Visual Arts track talk on "Filling Marston's Boots: Player Locomotion in 'Red Dead Redemption 2'" Rockstar Games' Mike Jones will walk you through the creative and technical choices made to create the locomotion of Arthur Morgan, the game's central protagonist.

This promises to be an insightful talk about a hugely complicated and popular game, as Jones aims to cover the emotional highs and lows of breathing life into a brand-new character while creating the player locomotion animation and supporting technical systems for Red Dead Redemption 2. Don't skip it!
