Players had been waiting almost an entire year for Red Dead Redemption 2 to make its way to the PC. The wait promised to bring even more detail and quality to an already impressive and game changing world that Rockstar had created. The launch was successful and it wasn't long after when players started doing their magic with mods. One that is amazingly cool is the ability to play as an animal (or character) of your choice.
For those that have been wanting to play as an animal in Red Dead Redemption 2, now is the chance. The mod allows players the ability to become any animal that inhabits the world. With that change, players receive all the abilities of said animal. Playing as an eagle will allow players to fly in the air, giving them a gorgeous bird-eye view of the vast, lush world below. Choosing a wolf gives players the ability to run faster as well as maul people and other animals. The are tons of exciting possibilities with this mod.
To play as an animal (or even another character) players need to follow some steps that are outlined here. Players can consult this list of characters and animals they choose to play as. There is this great video that will also explain how to do it as well as showing off some of the animals that players can control including a wolf and an eagle.
The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is something special and an amazing achievement by Rockstar. The quality, detail and beauty of it can sometimes be breathtaking. With it coming to PC, mods have quickly became available and made the game even more enjoyable and memorable. The ability to play as an animal and experience this amazing world from another perspective is reason enough to give it a try. Because who wouldn't want to fly high above the sprawling landscape as a majestic eagle?
