Just like every other week leading up to every E3 game show, gamers have always expected several major leaks to squeeze through the companies' hold. Now an alleged insider from Rockstar Games has posted some information on 4Chan related to Red Dead Redemption 2. According to the post, the source has revealed key details about the game's story and how it plays. Furthermore, the post also reveals that the open-world Western sequel will star Jack Marston, who most fans recognize as the son of John Marston, the previous game's protagonist.
Gamers who played the first installment know that the game switches you over to Jack Marston after his father is murdered. Based on the 4Chan post, Red Dead Redemption 2 is not going to be a prequel as it was initially speculated. Game Rant shares that the game is set three years after the original title and sees Jack Marston as he tries to understand "some things he finds in his father's journal after he dies."
The plot has Jack Marston going out to find some of his father's old comrades and learning more about John's secretive past. Flashback scenes will also take players back to when Dutch's gang was still very much active. PlayStation Universe points out that these sequences could allow gamers to use different characters at a time to flesh out the story in Red Dead Redemption 2. It was previously rumored that players will be able to switch between multiple characters in the game.
More information from the 4Chan post also details that game's map. According to insider's information, Red Dead Redemption 2 will reportedly feature a map bigger than that of Grand Theft Auto V. It will apparently include at least two sizable towns as well as a few small settlements scattered across the map. Fans will be glad to know that there will be a lot of things to do in the game, which is typical of Rockstar Games' titles. The post also talks about heists and kidnap for ransom elements to immerse players into the game even more.
Rockstar Games officially announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be delayed to 2018. They explained that the development team needed more time to polish the game into a masterpiece, which surprisingly had fans react favorably instead. E3 2017 is just around the corner and gamers should expect more information about the sequel from the developers.
