Red Dead Redemption 2: Discussion & Speculation (Part 1)

I will say its fairly confusing to hear people talk about how it needs all this marketing when it has already won several awards for being the most anticipated game of the year. People know about, people are excited for it, people who arent us. Can we please stop talking about release dates now it is pointless

You know,I'd even sugest closing this thread.

 

It is basically a hospital for mad-men here with PTSD.

 

Re-open it when there are some news?

I did not want to sound like that lol.

 

I think a lot of people just come here expecting news and always get dissapointed,then start talking and arguing about delays and stuff.

 

At this point,this forum is but a bad habbit that they can't drop(I'm over the drought,thanks to Monster Hunt,which I'm about to start very soon)

Haven't posted anything in a while but I'm still checking the forums everyday hoping for something new. I've noticed a lot more activity on here recently so here's hoping for us all waiting that this drought will soon end!

As others have posted Western related artwork before, here's some recent work that I found on ArtStation by Alexey Trishkin:

what if it comes out 4/20 and the game comes with a free joint in the case and then when u smoke it and you boot up the cartridge Arthur Morgan looks at you and he says ur name and he says u got some loud 4 me boi and he like reaches out of the tv like in Spy Kids 3D and he takes ur joint and take a two big hits but not 2 big just big enough to show he can hang and he hands it back to you and then he turns back to the game and he says alright lets do this and then you play the game together and you have so much fun and you start having inside jokes and then youre camping in the woods and you just cant help it and ou say Arthur Morgan youre my best friend. And he gives you a big hug and you say are we gonna be together forever and he says always Hunter S Compton

 

EDIT: this only applies too california, colorado n (George) Washington (D.C) so if ur not from there this wont happen when u play the game and your gonna b alone the whole time

This is 24k gold LOL

My girlfriend is wearing a face mask right now and it got me wondering wouldnt it be delightful if instead of wearing a bandana to hide his identity You could also buy a little eye mask, like the Lone Ranger or a French burglar in a cartoon would wear? These are the customization options I desire.

 

EDIT: I dont think this thread is pointless but I just want to talk about.... anything else.

Hey guys I just recently signed up to the forums as I usually just lurk here but I want to share something with you all that I found. During this terrible news drought, I decided to go look at the leaked map from a while ago and I found something interesting. You guys remember Thieves Landing, the "bayou" type island that connected New Austin to West Elizabeth. Well this post relates.

 

yWWcSLh.jpg

 

 

So first let me just throw this leaked map back which you can view up above. Notice the key in the upper left hand corner. Look on the map and see how each green dot is labeled a town.

 

Now lets go back to the first RDR and look at where Thieves Landing is compared to the other locations.

 

 

eScmGmi.jpg

Now back to the leaked map. Lets zoom in.

 

EwutFdG.jpg

 

Compared to the first RDR map image above, I'm almost positive this is Thieves Landing due to the placement comparison to Manzanita Post and Beechers Hope.


Now the real question is why are there two green dots there that would be indicating a town is located there? Could we possibly see Thieves Landing make a return to RDR2? Maybe it ties into the story? The only thing that makes me skeptical is that it is behind the red line which indicates the edges of the map. But since this map was leaked a while ago maybe the people developing the map hadn't finished or are still working on making Thieves Landing? I dont know guys this is all speculation but I thought I would bring this up in the forum to see what you guys think. That news drought is getting to my head lmao.

I would love to see some sort of karma to my actions in rdr2. Like if I helped a random npc from death situation, in return he will invite me to his house for a diner and I'll get to know him and his family and talk about how this place ain't no such thing as civilized. Is there an enough ram for that?.

Stephen Bliss provided the artwork for Rockstar titles for 15 years.

 

His work is amazing, here's his website if anyone's interested!

I doubt we'll see something exactly like that (sounds a bit dull, honestly) but maybe something along the lines of GTA V's random people you could help. There always ended up being a long drive where you gotta bit of the character's backstory through conversation and then some kind of reward later on.

Anthony Macbain was involved in creating the key artwork for Red Dead Redemption, but it looks like he also left Rockstar last year going by his LinkedIn.

Yes, he no longer works at Rockstar. Just his girlfriend Roxie Vizcarra who still works there, she acts as Senior Illustrator and General Art Maker.

I had a few thoughts about the story that I'd like to share:

1.What about The Stranger returning? I don't see a reason why he shouldn't. Would be cool to see someone else with him other than Marston. He wouldn't need to be the same person though.

The rest involve the realitionship with Arthur and John.

2. I could see John and Arthur as good friends. Perhaps Arthur will even teach John a few gun tricks in a mission where you would be introduced to dead-eye. That would also explain where John got his dead-eye level 1 from,

3. If this game has the changing point of the gang, I don't think we'd see Arthur staying with the gang. A part of me thinks that Dutch will actually be one of the antagonists of this game. Maybe Arthur leaves the gange even before the failed robbery, seeing as the gang is turning into something much worse they once were. This would make Dutch really angry and could drive the gang into even more madness. After that point Arthur would be on the run from the gang, If that was to happen I'd love a scene where John finds Arthur but spares him. Arthur could try and convince him to leave the gang which John would refuse. That would of course lead to the failed robbery of 1906.

 

I think this would be great for the player who has never played a red dead game before and only play RDR after RDR2. That's enough of my rambling. Also: Let's hope the news we get are worth it.

There are quite a few indications that the game will take place before 1906 though, by at least 7 years. Also it wouldn't be R*'s style of storytelling to make Arthur and John best buddies. It's too easy and rather cliché.

 

Don't expect John to have too much of an important role in rdr2 either. This story is about the "outlaw" Arthur Morgan first and foremost.

 

But these are my opinions of course.

It is rather cliché I'll have to agree but I'd still like Arthur and John to have respect for each other and explaing his John's dead-eye level 1 would be neat. I do agree that John shouldn't be that important in red dead redemption 2, I'd just like enough to make new players interested what happens to him. Even though I made John be really important to the story there, I think a few moments of him throught the game like this would be enough.

 

I don't know much about when the gang started turning mad but perhaps Arthur left the group long before the robbery (6-7 years) when only the first signs of the gang changing to the worse started happening. The woman in the second trailer telling Arthur (presumably) that she's the only one she trusts seems to apply that at least to me. The title of the game would also make more sense. These are just some late night rambles though.

You've got some good points, I'll admit. But the way I see is that Arthur won't be even part of Dutch's gang but rather has a gang of his own that will work together with Dutch and his gang. But the two gangs will eventually clash.

 

I think the woman from the trailer you mentioned is part of Arthur his own gang.

 

Yeah, having John more than 5 missions would be overkill in my opinion. I think the will have mutual respect for each other, but nothing more.
