Details Released About Frontier and City Life in Red Dead Redemption 2

Rockstar has given fans a small update on the world of their upcoming open-world western Red Dead Redemption 2, coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26.

In this update, the publisher shares some details about the towns that players will be able to explore during gameplay. However, with a world this big, I doubt this will be the last batch of town updates we’ll see before launch.

Here are the location details:

  • Valentine, Heartlands NH – Where an auction house attracts traders, ranchers, cowboys, gamblers, and a handful of other lowlives. The place is tough, but will act as a nice starting point to raise money, or as the publisher puts it, “hell”.
  • Annesburg Roanoke Ridge, NH  – The home of hardworking coal miners who are trying to provide for their families. However, they aren’t paid well and the living conditions are terrible.
  • Saint Denis Bayou NWA, LE – Hosts a trade route that runs the length of the country. This city is lively and full of various social classes, which makes for some interesting interactions.
  • Mount Hagen Grizzlies, AM – a snowy peak which is the main pass to get through to the western mountain range and connects to the Dakota River.
  • Rhodes Scarlett Meadows, LE – a corrupt town that tries to come off as prim and proper. The town is run by the bickering between to plantation families: Braithwaite and the Grays.
  • Strawberry Big Valley, WE – A logging town that just elected a new mayor who is obsessed with transforming it into a cultural beacon of wealthy tourists.
  • Lagras Bayou NWA, LE – A swamp full of people who live poorly, but happily making money where they can.

There you have it, a nice handful of details to hold you off until the game launches next month. Recently, the developer released a gameplay video showing what the player will be able to do during the game’s story.

Author’s take: I’m not a huge fan of city details, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t nerds out there that love this lore. So that’s why I wanted to share these details because a lot goes into creating these cities and their history.
