RDR2 Screenshot Analysis Thread

Recommended Posts

Jabalous

At least the mountains look nice. However, I won't let R* tricking me into thinking that these static pictures aren't played with ( I already hate them for playing us like a damn fiddle 7 months of thinking that, oh, it's just 5 months and we will be playing the game). Happened with plenty of pre-release screenshots of GTA V. Some bullshot work might be in there and they're not getting away with that again. Still, I'm sure the game will look and play fantastic.

So anyone still believe R* Fgt? . Anyway i think The Benz will be touching himself with these pics tonight

Edit: I can see the India studio playing a massive role just with these level of work. Even though North and franchise creator San Diego got it locked.

 

Didn't believe him to begin with.

There's no way this story has anything to do with Marston's.

 

And thats based off of...what exactly? A couple of screens that tell f*ck all?Based off the fact that this is obviously set a long time before RDR and John would be a kid.

Oh and the fact that Rockstar never revisit the same story.

Seems like it's set in the 1890s john was born in 1873, he ran away with dutches gang when he was a teenager, in the late 1980s so by 1890s hed be in his early 20s, suggestions that he could be returning in RDR2. Hopefully as the main protagonist or a playable character.

You know Rockstar use their proprietary debug tools for those screens, right? They allow them to change lighting and all, they don't need the public R* Editor.

 

Yea, If I recall, there were even GTA V screens/clips that were impossible to reproduce in game with the Editor cause Rockstar do weird things like move the Sun around just to get the perfect lighting for screenshots or scenes for a trailer.

Where are you getting this? Is there anything in these screens that dispute that time setting? And what makes you so sure John wont be returning?

He said "You will play as 3 members of Johns old gang and John isnt one of them" Also, we dont know the time frame and John did say that he joined the gang when he was real young

 

Plot twist: Rockstar is going to re-use that annoying little sh*t Jack Marston as the young John Marston character. Just to troll our poor, pathetic asses. They hate us.

Man! I hope they include a close camera view like this in the game. Would be very immersive especially when riding/walking in towns and saloons.

I'm just imagining the possibilities with the editor! lol

 

The MC is packing some detail. I love that once again our character carries what's equipped from the revolver and bowie knife to the Sharpe rifle on his back and poseables bag. I noticed in the other shot he doesn't have the bag so again I'm thankful for more clothing and customization options.

Maybe R* thought or saw that they Fu*ked up not putting john as a playable character if thats the case, and chosr to delay the game to make him playable who knows just my CRAZY speculation.

it's the same figure at the end of the trailer, you can see he is quite big and burly

The fact that (one of) the (potential) protagonist(s) (?) holds 2 different guns makes me think about a weapon system similar to MP3's.

These lonesome protag shots give me an Assassins Creed vibe. And I don't want that associated with RDR2.

That's definitely the protagonist or at least one of many. He looks to me on the fatty side and kinda reminds me of the drink-addicted protagonist of True Grit body wise.

Wish we could fix this up a bit to see what it says on the carriage

 

1e4d0a148d684846f86c8ba12b6e33f3.png

 

I saw that on Twitter earlier and after some adjusting and resizing of my own in Photoshop, I think I found something pretty interesting.

 

y5oe4oq.png

 

I believe the sign on the back says "Stage coach" with a symbol of a horse between the two words and smaller, illegible text above and below it.

 

At the top there's a 5-6 letter word that I can't quite make out ("Becky" or "Rocky" are my best guesses but it looks like it could begin with an S as well), followed by "Overland Stagecoach Co."

 

A quick Google search of "Overland stagecoach" turned up this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overland_Trail

 

"The Overland Trail was a stagecoach and wagon trail in the American West during the 19th century. - The Overland Trail was famously used by the Overland Stage Company owned by Ben Holladay to run mail and passengers to Salt Lake City, Utah, via stagecoaches in the early 1860s. Starting from Atchison, Kansas, the trail descended into Colorado before looping back up to southern Wyoming and rejoining the Oregon Trail at Fort Bridger. -"

 

So basically, the Overland Stagecoach Company really existed in the old west, and it traveled on a route called the Overland Trail.

 

I don't want to over-analyze or speculate too much over a single screenshot, but this is a screenshot analysis thread so I'm going to do exactly that.

 

I believe these are the possibilities:

  • The game is based around the real-world Overland Trail or it's a part of the map ​(I doubt this is it because Rockstar simply doesn't do this. At least they don't in GTA and didn't in RDR. They use fictional names for places that are based off of real locations)
  • The name of the state or territory that the game is set in is "Overland" or has "Overland" in it (similar to how New Austin was a reference to Texas and the southern border states in RDR, Overland could be a reference to the Kansas/Colorado/Wyoming area of the American frontier, since that's where the real Overland Trail was)
  • There's a town or region of the map with the name "Overland" in it (think Cholla Springs, Gaptooth Ridge, Rathskeller Fork etc. from RDR) Could "Rocky Overland" or something like that be a town or region in the game?
  • "Overland" is simply being used in the name of a stagecoach company as a small reference to the real-world old west trail and stagecoach company. Perhaps the first word at the top that I can't decipher is indeed a first name and "Overland" is the last name?

Maybe I'm reaching just a bit, but with so little information, all we can really do at this time is speculate and craft our own theories. I could be right and Overland could end up being significant or it could simply be a small reference. Either way, I thought this was worth pointing out and discussing.

I hope so! It's one of my favourite movies! Love the different vibe of that western and the soundtrack too (by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis)

Can't quite make anything out but if the Doctor store is anything like RDR1 this might be a list of possible things we can buy in the game. No photoshop wizard though, not sure if it's possible to clean up the text.

So this is where we will end up after we are wasted? Also I wish we can buy meds to heal ourselves. The horse on the right is also missing some shadows.

Stuff like shadows missing is probably for the same reason the cart tracks look ahead of the cart (they don't look pre-made always there tracks IMO). It's probably to do with them going forwards and backwards in time to find the right shot - if you've ever used the editor for screenshots you might have experienced it. Stuff like particles, shadows, foot/wheel prints, damage etc gets left over or ends up missing.

It doesn't look like all houses are enterable sadly.

Whilst GTA has too many buildings to have that many interiors, RDR series could use with almost every enterable, at least the houses. Could provide some cool side missions, easter eggs and so on. But eh...

Maybe it is a bit far fetched, but couldn't it also hint towards the protagonist changing his physique throughout the game?

Similar to how Max Payne shaved his head during a dark time, the RDR2 protag could get burlier during certain points in the story, where he let himself go.

It will most probably be just like with most R* Games, that some special interiors will be enterable, but those that are probably will be very detailed designed.

Hopefully as the main protagonist or a playable character.Nah 1890's is too late.. cant believe you think John will be returning.. come on guys

It is 1880 at the absolute earliest. The train shown is the classic western 4-4-0 layout, and it's design in particular is post-1870. We can also see electric streetlights multiple times, and electric streetlights weren't even first installed in a major city until 1878. They didn't become widespread in the USA until 1890, and even then mostly only in major cities. So to have them in what is clearly a smaller frontier town would indicate post-1890, possibly even as late as 1900.

 

Of course, R* could say 'f*ck it' to historical accuracy and make it set in 1875 or some sh*t, and give us an AK47 and a Lamborghini as well.
