Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) features simulations of around 200 animal species including deer and birds. Researchers claim that the players they learned how to identify wildlife real and predict the behavior of animals.
On average, players were able to identify 10 out of 15 animals in a quiz, three more than non-players, the University of Exeter researchers said. They said that playing techniques can be a “communication force”. Red Dead Redemption 2 is an action-adventure game set in the southern and western states of the United States in 1899.
It features animals such as the white-tailed deer, hare, alligator tortoise, lake sturgeon, blue jay and pink spoonbill. Researchers from the University of Exeter and Truro and Penwith College in Cornwall, they have challenged more than 500 playersto identify photographs of real animals.
