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

Has anyone mentioned the possibility that this might be Landon Ricketts? This could actually give us a good idea of the time period... which is why they probably didn't show his face.

 

Please tell me you're kidding

Oh boy this is greenrock type of comment . Ricketts , really ? As far as we know, he wasn´t part of Dutch´s gang and that guy in middle looks good 30 years younger than Ricketts and we´ve been discussed this game take place around 10 years before RDR 1 which is probablly right according Dutch face...

Why on Earth would it be Landon Ricketts? What would he have to do with the Van Der Linde gang? And why would he be so young?

How would that be Landon lmao, first off Landon wasn't a bad guy in his younger days in-fact he helped stop the blackwater massacre. Its impossible for that to be Landon based on how he was recognized in America. Also I'm guessing that man in the middle is a part of dutch's gang or at least contributes in a way so he would have to know john... turns out Landon never knew john when john went to Mexico to meet him. Landon was practically a celebrity actually John mentioned to Landon that he remembered reading about him in the news paper when he was young, if Landon joined the gang being as popular as he was John would've had that conversation a long time ago. Just play the game it will all make sense once you play the story.

The only characters that could make a return...

- Dutch

- Bill

- John Marston

- Escuella (Maybe in the background I don't think he will be that relevant).

- Abigail

- Baby Jack (Depends in the timeline).

- Uncle ?

 

oh and CJ

The trailer makes the guy in the middle out to be someone of great significance. However, Rockstar are known to change the camera angles from trailer to final version, so he could be absolutely no one.

I always thought he was the Fire marshal, and he's asking, "Alright, who did this? Somebody playing with matches again?"

 

Then the cutscene ends, and the mission starts, where you have to track down the serial pyro.

I don't think the mansion is Dutch's. Sure, we see Arthur roping a horse outside in the trailer, but my guess is that the mansion is a heist. For all of GTA V's supposed faults, the one thing I haven't seen someone criticize about the single player campaign are the heists. My guess is it will be a heist, and start with Arthur going in and doing some recon work, Like Michael, after borrowing Harvey Molina's uniform in the FIB heist- if you went that route. (There'll be some missions where you're getting to know the owners, doing some odd jobs as a ranch/farmhand, gaining their trust, and getting the location/combination of the rather large safe, or some such thing.), then you'll do some setups, then the actual heist, which will be a rather brutal, violent affair, and will culminate in the burning of the plantation house. (before which Dutch will hand the bag of money to Arthur, lean back in a chair with one of the now-dead plantation owner's cigars in-hand, and ask Arthur, "I'm trusting you with that. Do you have my back?") The plantation house burning would be used either as a way to hide the evidence, or as a warning to all the people Dutch feels are too well off, "we're coming for you, too.". Maybe both, though I'm not sure.

why would they burn down a mansion for a heist its not like lawmen could track DNA, it seems like they are burning it down for there own specific reasons all a fire would do is draw attention thats the last thing a robbery needs. Why I think the mansion is Dutch's is because well number one it said in the local newspaper in armadillo don't quote me be it was something along the lines of them stating dutch's mansion got burned to the grown and dutch was killed inside of it obviously Dutch somehow escaped making the last claim incorrect, also Dutch was known as a wealthy man so a mansion would make sense for dutch to store all his fancy clothing in.

I mean its not really that easy, yes i believe the reasoning behind the fire will be more complex but its confirmed that mansion is dutch's also everyone expects Arthur to be Dutch's righthand man seeing Arthur retaliate against the gang leader in the end and seeing the insanity take over Dutch would be different and in my opinion would be very awesome. We all have ideas it doesn't hurt to express them :)

If you go back to Beecher's Hoppe as Jack, Rufus can still be heard barking in the distance... But he is not there. It's pretty creepy

The whole ranch feels creepy after John, Abigail, Uncle and their dog passed away. It also kinda makes you feel sad by reminding you of being alone after parents pass away. It was a unique event and feeling in a video game.

This is the first game I'm actually excited for this decade. (As well as TLOU 2)

 

Theres no other title I'm honestly that fussed about compared to Red Dead. I just can't wait to get back into that world on a much bigger scale, I played RDR countless times from 2010 - 2013 whether it was just walking around that map and roleplaying, killing civilians and getting chased by the law.

 

I think this game will be game of the decade, it's not that far until release if you think about it.

Yeah, I'm in the same situation. V was the last game I was excited about, but I was busy with life during that time and I didn't play it until 2015 on PS4. Now, Redemption II is gonna be a day 1 purchase! Probably even pre-loaded on the system before launch, but you know, a disc with a map is a good thing. Print the map then? Will see...

I never buy digital. Physical all the way. Especially a Rockstar game!

 

I'm excited for a special edition, hopefully a steelbook or collectors edition.

I'm anticipating the special edition so I can switch my pre-order over to that if it has some goodies.

I can't think of any other game I'm more excited for. I was late to the party with RDR, so I missed out on that pre-release hype. I didn't realize it existed until that fall...lol.

Unfortunately I preordered GTA V way before the special editions were announced, and I won't make this mistake again. Also, GTA V is the only game I've ever pre-ordered, and I'll preorder RDR2 too, because Rockstar always delivers on singleplayer

I'm hoping RDR2's cover art has the embossed/shiny cover Red Dead Redemption GOTY had.
