When cores are soft, game’s harder. An attempt to make Red Dead actually feels like a harsh survival game.
If you read for Red Dead Redemption 2 description, it says a Survival game. Or is it?
Core depletion based on time of day. Slowed HP regen, none at all during combat.
AI accuracy based on their health. Dynamic damage taken based on your health.
Died in open world? Lose equipped guns.
Drain all cores, reduce its rank and lose money by half.
Sleep restores stamina only. Gotta eat Pearson’s stew & drink some coffee!
Dead Eye no longer reload your guns.
Except for when you got identical weapon equipped, RAGE limitation.
Oh and also, moonshine no longer shine. Disabled glows for all pickups & objects.
