Despite being one of 2018’s biggest video games – and the only non-GTA property Rockstar have worked on this decade since the original – we actually don’t know a whole lot about Red Dead Redemption 2.
Going off officially released materials, all we’ve got are two trailers showing new character Arthur Morgan, the fact it’s a prequel (based on Dutch’s gang being shown, who you hunt in Redemption 1), and that Rockstar’s latest RAGE engine tech is backing every bullet.
Outside of that, well, it’s over to leaks and rumours to fill the gaps. From ancillary reports we know that Rockstar will be doing a fully-featured online mode called Red Dead Online, the story is centred on the Van Der Linde gang moving from location to location, and John Marston is likely the post-credits character we swap to after finishing up as Morgan.
Thankfully, an even tastier batch of leaks have sprung forth from TrustedReviews, who have apparently been sitting on this information for months, not wanting to publish for fear of not being able to verify their claims. However, now that a handful of details such as the game’s main character have emerged, they’ve realised everything else could also be true.
