The rumors are true, Red Dead Redemption 2 does have a huge chunk of the original game's map in it. But you never, ever go there, even though you can. Why?
It'll probably be used more for the online. Or possibly prequel DLC if Rockstar decides to make real DLC again.
Most likely for Red Dead Online since that area is completely empty so imagine that they add content in the area for the Online.
Perhaps like gta v, have online missions that could be completed ALONE..would be dank af..
John wasnt very familiar with the area in RDR 1 ... the first he visisted armadillo as far as i remember was in the events of the first game if the gang was in that region b4 it wouldnt be consistant with the first game
Well RDR2 started with them having failed some mission on a boat in Blackwater. And the group is mostly new to the areas in RDR2. They're from the RDR1 region.
They could have passed by the region but necessarly lived in it ... except for blackwater
SP DLC from R*? That's an amusing thought, but not likely, IMHO.
Last red dead had single player dlc. Right?
@ninerguy1608: Since then, R* has changed their motives with support. They make a _ton_ off of shark cash, they're not going to abandon that with RDR2.
Agreed. It's for the online no doubt. It's disappointing R* didn't do much with it now but it is what it is.
That's exactly what I think they're going to do with it. Use the area for multiplayer and DLC.
I reckon dlc, and I reckon it will be a prequel that ends with the events in Blackwater.
Complete Remake of Red Dead Redemption 1 within Red Dead Redemption 2 as DLC.
As a single player dlc? That would be really massive!
It would be great
The definitely have the money and manpower.
Wow that’s crazy I told my brother that same theory just last night lol. I don’t think it’s going to happen but that would be freaking awesome
It would require the Mexico part, and that ain't in it
There was a vid on youtube by mrbossftw and it shows how you can glitch to mexico and he says the whole layout is there but idk. Check it out
@luna Not possible without Mexico.
That would cost 50$ minimum.
Id love to see a django themed dlc with a max payne bullet dive perk for the main character.
You go there in the epilogue
If you read the article they say exactly that.
The description is wildly misleading "But you never, ever go there, even though you can." Can't read the piece now bc that's such a contradiction that I won't know what's truthful or not. Thanks for saving me the click guys.
Well, I doubt it’s dlc since gta5 had none. I think it’s more for the online component.
Online DLC most likely
cut‘n‘paste effect. they did not build a new game (as it should be) but expanded the existing one (as it should not be)
That doesn't even make sense...
You feeling ok buddy?
We know the multiplayer is going to feature battle royale so it could be its battle royal map.
Just went there last night and boy is it empty. It was really cool to see how much I remember from a game so long ago, but other than nostalgia, theres not a ton of reason to go there aside from a couple legendary animals and I was able to find one measly cigarette card.
Probably cut content from the main game to be sold as DLC, which seems to be the common trend with developers nowadays.
Ya cuz the main game is really lacking content...lmao where do you come up with this stuff? Lol
There's also lot of empty space on the RDR2 Map as if Rockstar intends to add single player DLC some time down the road. At the bottom of the Map the lines seem to fade into more unseen land rather then define an end to the Map.
I'm sure they will properly support rdr2 with more than online content. Undead nightmare 2 would be amazing
Wasn’t a fan of undead nightmare. I think I’m the only person that feels this way.
I mean, it could simply just be there for nostalgia purposes
Online or dlc.
When you 100% the game you open up the original Red Dead Redemption remastered in the newest engine! Sigh, one can dream.
You can get into Mexico, there’s YouTube videos showing this. Also the multiplayer starting area is in el paradiso prison.
Firat version for PC
Could be DLC. Like with GTA5 the opening 15 minutes of the game is set outside of LA and once that is over and done with you don't visit their again until later on and even then only for a few minutes.
DLC that’s why! Get ready for John Marston expansion pack
