Highlights A new mod for Red Dead Redemption 2 called Cut Dialogue Enhanced restores previously unused dialogue, providing players with more content to experience. The mod restores dialogue related to shopping, fighting, winning fights, dodging bullets, and interacting with law enforcement. While the mod adds hundreds of audio lines to the game, it also serves as a reminder of the content that was cut or changed during the game’s development.
A recent mod for Red Dead Redemption 2 restores cut dialogue that was never utilized in the game. For players who can’t get enough of Arthur Morgan’s world and voice, this mod may be something to look into.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is set in an expansive open world that contains so many little details that players are still uncovering them to this day. It may come as a surprise to some to learn that there’s actually more in the game than what players can ordinarily access. While this content typically can’t be accessed on console versions of the game, the PC version can be explored and thus hidden files can be examined, or even utilized as originally intended, like with this mod.
The mod is called Cut Dialogue Enhanced and was shared by a user called roastedflamingo on Nexus Mods. According to the creator, it was partially based upon another mod called Cut Dialogue Restoration and Enhancement, but this one goes a step further, restoring everything that mod did and more. According to the mod’s description, dialogue tied to shopping, getting into a fight, winning a fight, and dodging bullets have all been restored. Arthur has also had some of his lines when dealing with law enforcement restored, though what the player hears will largely be dependent upon Arthur Morgan’s Honor.
All in all, roastedflamingo states that hundreds of audio lines have been restored. Red Dead Redemption 2 players may be somewhat surprised at this, as the game’s massive scope means that it already has thousands of voice lines from Arthur and others. For players who have already played Red Dead Redemption 2 for hundreds or thousands of hours, though, this mod may help to freshen up the game somewhat.
Unfortunately, the restored dialogue in this mod may make players think about everything that could have been. Diehard fans of Red Dead Redemption 2 likely know that a lot of things were either cut from the game entirely or significantly changed. For years, players theorized that Mexico would eventually play a role in either the Red Dead Online component or as DLC, due to files discovered in the game. However, the Red Dead Redemption 2 Mexico map ultimately went unused, and what Rockstar Games originally intended for it remains unknown.
As game development progresses, not everything the team works hard on will make the final cut. Whether Rockstar cut content from Red Dead Redemption 2 due to some kind of internal constraints like a lack of time or simply because they no longer fit the image the developers wanted to present, it’s interesting to see what kind of work went into the game that’s ordinarily hidden from players.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
