Red Dead Redemption 2 Latest Trailer Confirms Leaked Map Is Legit
Red Dead Redemption 2 received its third official trailer yesterday, showcasing more of the game's setting, story, and characters. While no gameplay has been shown once again, the trailer did reveal something interesting.
During the trailer it's possible to notice the names of some of the game's locations like Cornwall, Valentine, Van Horn and Annesburg, locations that are named in a Red Dead Redemption 2 map that has been leaked back in 2016, confirming that it was the real deal. Things have likely changed since then, but at least we now have a rough idea of how big the final map will be.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will be set in 1899 and star Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang following a robbery that has gone wrong in the town of Blackwater.
America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.
