Red Dead Redemption 2 locales the focus of new update

They all look gorgeous (not to mention deadly).

New Red Dead Redemption 2 locales were today detailed by Rockstar, showcasing forests, mountains, plains and swamps.

While the entire post is here, we’ve gathered descriptions of the locations, straight from Rockstar’s mouth.

First, Valentine, in the Heartlands, NH, is described as “a raucous, rough-and-tumble town.” Moreover, “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.”

Sounds like a good place to visit, eh?

Next is Annesburg in Roanoke Ridge, NH, where “life isn’t easy for the miners and their families.” The local “has been providing coal up and down the Lannahechee River for almost a century,” though sadly for workers, “working conditions are terrible for little pay, and many men have lost their lives down the pit.”

Maybe not a great place to visit then.

Saint Denis, in Bayou NWA, LE, is the next stop. The city is described as, “a key gateway into North America with a trade route that runs the length of the country.” Here, the city “is a melting pot of cultures and people where businessmen, socialites, sailors, laborers, beggars and thieves all live side by side.”

Sounds classy.

Mount Hagen, in the Grizzlies, LM , is “one of the more well-known peaks in the snowy Grizzlies of Ambarino,” Rockstar says. “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.”

Picturesque, but likely a place where we’ll struggle to survive. What do you think?

Next up is Rhodes, in 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,” Rockstar wrote of the locale.

With a name to match its aspirations, Strawberry, in Big Valley, WE, 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.”

Finally, Lagros in Bayou NWE, LE is “a small, remote settlement out in the swamps.” Here, its occupants “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.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 26 October.
