Aside from the recent announcement of the Nintendo Switch, the other big gaming news to hit the world is the announcement of "Red Dead Redemption 2." And people have been going crazy looking for any information that they can scour before the game finally releases.
One rumor come from Fabnewz. It is being speculated that the game might actually steer from the traditional one-character plot to a more multiple protagonist story. This has caused some worry among "Red Dead Redemption" fans regarding if having too many arcs would distract from the story. Fans really grew into the character of the first game, John Marston, and it is understandable that they would be worried, especially since the poster indicate seven main characters.
But this rumor could very well end up being true. Considering the fact that they have successfully done this style with another one of their games, "Grand Theft Auto 5." The game might remind fans that this multiple protagonist arcs could work and can still produce a great gaming experience.
Another big rumor to hit the "Red Dead Redemption 2" title is via an image which can be seen on IGN. The source claims that this is an early leak of the "Red Dead Redemption 2" map and is also a brand new art direction model.
One interesting thing that viewers will see on the map is how rivers are so prominent in dividing the different towns. This could suggest a new way of traveling instead of just horseback. Guesses range from trains, row boats, or even swimming.
This is very similar to what "Witcher 3" does and would really make "Red Dead Redemption 2" feel more open and wild. Another noticeable thing about the map is the fact that it looks like gamers will have to deal with different weather conditions when they play the game.
Now cowboys may have to experience swamplands, deserts, and even snow. "Red Dead Redemption 2" is slated for a release in fall 2017.
