SPOILER:Lack of wildlife


Recommended Posts

So, I've finished the game entirely & am now playing as Marston & I've noticed that there appears to be a drop & lack of wildlife & even NPC characters now that Morgan is gone.


It seemed that everywhere I turned & looked or ran/rode through there were animals around, or every time I'd use Eagle Eye I would see tons & now there are hardly any...it used to be that I couldn't ride my horse through the swamp without triggering a dozen ticked off alligators & now I can barely find any.


Has this happened with anyone else? New Austin is particularly vacant.

LOL, I mean, I immediately assumed Morgan would die & we'd play as Marston once I heard he would be in the game & I'm sure you did too.


It's just a game & Emma Roberts is the killer in Scream 4.

Is this not the f*cking spoiler section?! The spoiler tags after Amarillo Inn mean enter at your own risk.. sheesh.


EDIT: Yeah, it LITERALLY says enter at your own risk, verbatim lol..


I wouldn't say I notice a lack of animals of pets. New Austin seems sparse in that regard, but I think that makes sense and is intentional. Use cover scent and more animals should appear.

You're obviously not going to edit it out at this point, instead making excuses and blaming people who don't already know the end of a game they haven't fully played. So I've reported and hope others have too. f*cking ridiculous. Of course it's a goddamn spoiler. You're talking about the end of a game that's been out for a week. 


EDIT: your/you're

Guys it was in the main section and now it's in Armadillo Inn, where spoilers are allowed. Relax.

I worried about a distant change/lack of AI after the end game too, but I tested it out in Valentine to see if my theory about NPC drop off/more basic rudimentary NPCs was correct, it is and it isn't at this point. the town bustles and people still do things. I haven't noticed a lack of animals because I'm currently wandering around the wilderness and have seen tonnes of animals.

I think some things do change at the endgame, and I do wonder what it is, because it does certainly feel different after ward. can't quite place it though. The camp aspect being gone might affect something I don't know. I think its more or likely a case of hype train overload again, and what people thought were hard-coded systems to play with in-game are limited to missions/side quests.

Thanks for the replies, guys...


Yeah, I can't seem to place my finger on it but something does change when you finish the story...and, I truly don't think it has to do with hype...I've sincerely noticed a stark dropoff with everything from activity in cities, rural parts, as well as animal activity.


It's beyond "kinda noticeable", it's like blatantly obvious...I'm not complaining though - I'll play another as Arthur, get to Chapter 4 & not progress further & leave the Marston one for what it offers.
