Recently, we got the news that Rockstar Games will postpone Red Dead Redemption 2’s release to spring 2018. In addition to that, we got to see a few in-game screenshots. If you haven’t seen them yet, check out our earlier post.
Ever since the screenshots were revealed, fans have been analysing those images with great sense of alertness. So did my team and we found out certain hidden clues in these pictures, which might hint at certain information about the game.
Red Dead Redemption 2’s Main Protagonist
This character is the most prominently featured cowboy. You can see him present in almost all of the revealed screenshots. Though he might not be the only playabale character, he seems to be the person around whom most of the story revolves. His bulky outlook might point him down to be Dutch van der Linde, the leader of Marston’s gang in the last game. However, we are unsure about this.
Dual Wielding Different Weapons
When you take a closer look at those guns in his hands, they are two different ones. This could mean, that the game would allow us to wield two different weapons in combat. Although it is hard to tell what those guns really are, we could narrow down the options to a Colt SAA and a Smith and Wesson Model 3.
The Timeline Falls In The Late 18th Century
The guns we mentioned above was mostly used in the years 1873 to 1892, and 1869 to 1915. The images show telegraph poles and steam trains, which also date back to the late 1800s.
We Might Return To Blackwater Again
In the left corner of the image, right above the head of the seated man, you would see the letters B,L and C. It clearly suggests the name ‘Blackwater’, with one of the pillars blocking the letter A inbetween L and C. Blackwater is a famous location from the previous Red Dead Redemption game, which also suggests that the timeperiod might be even earlier.
These were the things that my team were able to make out from these images. However, there might be more to it than what meets the eye. These fine hidden details increases the anticipation towards the game, as we speculate on what to expect out of Red Dead Redemption 2.
