[SPOILERS] I have a question about the game's ending

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

PLEASE DON'T PROVIDE ANY ADDITIONAL SPOILERS IN THE DISCUSSION, I ONLY WANNA KNOW THE INFORMATION SPECIFIED LATER IN THE THREAD.


I played RDR back in the day and fortunately I didn't have the ending spoiled, so it was pretty surprising (in a good way).
Today (which was supposed to be a good day, given the announcement of the PC version) I got a spoiler....

 

I'm very excited to finally play RDR2, on my PC, but an A**hole spoiled the fact that the protagonist dies (don't know if it's actually true).
To be fair, the fact that Arthur isn't ever mentioned in RDR 1 already made me think that the overall arch of the story (for the prequel) would end up with Arthur going away from the gang or being killed...

Anyways, I was wondering if you think this information will completely destroy my enjoyment of the main story, as I literally don't know anything else (except was was mentioned in RDR1 of course).

 

PLEASE DON'T PROVIDE ANY ADDITIONAL SPOILERS IN THE DISCUSSION, I ONLY WANNA KNOW THE AFOREMENTIONED INFORMATION.


Thank you very much :)

How should I interpret this answer?
Of course I will play it...I'm buying a new GPU for it specifically.

I just wanna know if I can be safe the whole thing won't be spoiled a 100% by this info, so that I can remove one worry from my head.

That information will not really affect your gaming experience. Trust me.

Cool!
Now thanks to the forum feature where if you simply hover on the thread with the mouse it shows you the text I know that you can play as John at the end of the game (OFC it was an accident, as I don't want spoilers).
That said knowing Arthur dies (still have no idea of the circumstances) my logical conclusion was that you played as John (considering every rockstar open world allows you to keep playing after the end of the game), so I don't feel affected at all by this info.
That said I will avoid coming into the forum again as sometimes you simply can't avoid spoilers.
I know NOTHING about the rest of the story.

This info is not gonna be spoiler for you when you reach chapter 6. Because you will already know arthur will die without no doubt.

 

You still dont know about why arthur dies and whats happening after his death. Dont worry

The story is so amazing that even playing through a second (or more) time it's still enjoyable, even when you know everything that is going to happen because you've played it before.

 

I'd accidentally been spoiled before playing RD1 and knew how that ended, which made it sad to play and a bit weird because I kept wondering where it was going to happen.... but I still considered it my most enjoyable gaming experience of all time (until RDR2 :D)

yes this game is an amazing experience. it might be a little sad knowing your protagonist will die. but the great news is the side characters and gang members are so great. that you will enjoy them so much that the death is not that big of a deal. and you will have plenty of time to spend with arthur. and if you really want to keep arthur you can just create a save for arthur only and dont progress the story. its a great game and great story. im sure you will have a great time playing it.

You should play it and I’m sure you’ll still enjoy it regardless of any spoilers you might encounter, true or not.

 

Before we knew anything specific about the plot line, I was against the ideas of it being a prequel with Dutch’s gang on the basis that there wouldn’t be enough suspense. If you’d played the original RDR you’d know for example some characters would definitely survive.

 

I was totally wrong. The story is not so much about where we end up (which again, if you’ve played the original, can’t be a total surprise) but how we get there - and it’s brilliantly done.

 

Don't open the spoiler if you’ve not played RDR1, but it’s safe if you haven’t played RDR2 (must consider PC players who never played the original) - some extrapolation contained of what you should reasonably expect to happen in the new game if you remember the original well:

 

 

 


You know John, Abigail, Jack, Uncle, Dutch, Bill and Javier will survive for certain, but the original game points to something going badly wrong within the gang, John hinting Dutch was a good man once who went mad. RDR2 could be subtitled “Dutch’s downfall” and the story of how it all goes wrong is brilliantly told.

 

 

Theres also a wealth of new characters, some you’ll like, some you’ll hate, and you’ll not be sure about what happens to them.
 

 

 

In short, I would obviously try to avoid spoilers, but it won’t affect your enjoyment of the game if you come across some in my opinion.

A lot of people who played it for the first time figured out the ending very early in the game. There are multiple endings too so don't worry. Also the ending is nothing, wait till you see the entire chapter 5. That was the biggest "what the f*ck" moment in my playthrough.

I dont think it would too much. Due to playin the first game, I predicted some points but there is plenty of other fun stuff and plot related stuff anyhow, just be careful of spoilers on any platform, especially rockstar twitter ( where people are posting further spoilers ), here and YouTube maybe. Just dont put too much thought into it when you play and enjoy the story when it's out for pc
