Red Dead Redemption 2 Has Animated Horse Testicles

Red Dead Redemption 2 is shaping up to be one of the best-looking games of this console generation. As showcased in this week’s gameplay trailer, Rockstar is set to push the PS4 and Xbox One to their limits, with the game’s open-world American Old West setting making full use of both systems’ capabilities. It also features fully-rendered, fully-realized, fully-engorged horse testicles.

If you enjoyed the original Red Dead Redemption but the absence of horse bollocks stifled your sense of immersion, then you’ll be pleased with this addition to RDR2. Amid all the new characters, overhauled combat, and brand new features such as being able to verbally defuse confrontations instead of launching into gunfights, players can now also hop on horses that boast a detailed set of balls.

The horse testicles were spotted by the r/gaming subreddit, who handily took a couple of screenshots of the horse balls in action:

The inclusion of horse testicles in Red Dead Redemption 2 has caused some to question where Rockstar is going to take this new addition. “What are the ball physics like?” user weequay1189 pondered. “Do they sway back and forth during a trot, bounce lightly during a cantor and flail about wildly during a gallop? Or are they just going to sit there unmoving like a lame decoration. We’ve had boob physics for years, do we finally get ball physics?”

As pointed out by other users, animal testicles were present in Red Dead Redemption, though they weren’t added to the game’s horses. Bonzo the bull, a mount that players could unlock in the game’s multiplayer component, had an enviable pair of long ‘n’ danglies. However, the Xbox 360 and PS3’s visuals weren’t quite up to the task of realistically rendering those bad boys, whereas Red Dead Redemption 2‘s horse balls look much more true-to-life.

So there you have it. If you’re the kind of person who longs for realism in your video games, then RDR2 has your bases covered when it comes to animal genitalia. The game and its balls will hit store shelves for PS4 and Xbox One on October 26th, 2018.
