INTRO TO THE GANG…
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an action-adventure game developed and executed by Rockstar Games, released in 2018. It is a prequel to the Red Dead Redemption, which was released in May 2010, and the third installment of the Red Dead Series, the first being Red Dead: Revolver (2004). The game is set back to the 1890s amidst the Wild West. The premise consists of Arthur, a member of the gang Van der Linde. Arthur must somehow prevent the decline of the Wild West and has to fight the government forces and other rival gangs too. Along with Arthur is John Marston, who was seen as the protagonist in Red Dead Redemption.
ABOUT THE SETTING
The game starts in the year 1899. The setting of Red Dead Redemption 2 covers five states of the U.S. They are:
- New Hanover
- New Austin
- West Elizabeth
The development done in the third installment of the Red Dead games series, in the setting, is the inclusion of three more states in the adventure. Apart from New Austin and West Elizabeth, the rest of the three states are new in the game.
West Elizabeth has bare green lands, dense forests.
New Austin is a dry desert region which also featured in the original game.
