Fall in Love With Red Dead Redemption 2’s Frontier, Cities, and Towns

With Red Dead Redemption 2 almost a month away, we’re getting more and more details about the upcoming title from Rockstar Games. Following up August 2018’s gameplay trailer, characters were briefly the focus of RDR2’s marketing efforts. Now that we know more about the people involved, Rockstar revealed more about the places we will visit.

On the official website, Rockstar Games showed off few key areas that will appear in this massive open-world game. Here are some notable locations you can expect to explore when Red Dead Redemption 2 releases on October 26, 2018 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

  • Valentine: The Heartlands, NH: A raucous, rough-and-tumble town in the Heartlands, Valentine’s livestock auctions attract traders, ranchers, cowboys, gamblers, outlaws and prostitutes from far and wide, all looking to make some money, raise some hell, and have a good time.
  • Annesburg: Roanoke Ridge, NH: Life isn’t easy for the miners and their families in Annesburg, which has been providing coal up and down the Lannahechee River for almost a century. Working conditions are terrible for little pay, and many men have lost their lives down the pit.
  • Saint Denis: Bayou NWA, LE: A key gateway into North America with a trade route that runs the length of the country, the bustling city of Saint Denis is a melting pot of cultures and people where businessmen, socialites, sailors, laborers, beggars and thieves all live side by side.
  • Mount Hagen: Grizzlies, AM: One of the more well-known peaks in the snowy Grizzlies of Ambarino, Mount Hagen towers above Lake Isabella to the west and Beartooth Beck to the east, which provides the main pass through the western mountain range and joins up with the Dakota River further south.
  • Rhodes: Scarlett Meadows, LE: Prim and proper on the surface, tensions and corruption run deep in the Southern town of Rhodes, which for years has been caught in the crossfire between the Braithwaites and the Grays, two warring plantation families.
  • Strawberry Big Valley, WE: Strawberry was little more than a small logging town until the arrival of its new mayor, an East Coast eccentric, who is obsessed with transforming it into a cultural beacon for wealthy tourists, much to the bemusement of the locals.
  • Lagras: Bayou NWA, LE: A small, remote settlement out in the swamps of Bayou Nwa, Lemoyne, the people of Lagras live self-sufficiently for the most part, making a little money here and there from fishing and acting as guides for travelers wishing to navigate the region.
