Red Dead Redemption 2 Map & Gameplay Leaked


Just three days before release, leaks are aplenty for Red Dead Redemption 2 and we can now share with you an unconfirmed but almost 100% likely real leak of the Red Dead Redemption 2 map, as well as a short gameplay video. Review embargoes will lift one day before the game’s launch on Friday, and we’re looking forward to a big weekend of gaming as we get our hands on the game and attend PAX 2018 in Melbourne.

The leaked image shows plenty of areas of the map, as well as rivers and streams flowing through the wild west. While it is not a complete map, it does demonstrate how vast the world will be. The map also appears to slowly reveal itself as you explore the world, as if Arthur Morgan is drawing it as he goes.

According to players that have witnessed other parts of the Red Dead Redemption 2 map, this section makes up for about a quarter to a third of the total map, and doesn’t include the area to the South West which is basically the same size as what is uncovered in the below image.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will apparently offer approximately 60 hours of main story content, and many more hours through side missions, exploring, and of course online play. While we still wait for news of a Windows PC version, console players are gearing up for a big next few weeks of Red Dead action, as we haven’t visited Rockstar’s wild west since 2010.

Recently we revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 has expanded its weaponry, with over 50 unique customisable weapons that are not only affected by malfunctions but also how you travel around the map. Cleaning and maintaining your weapons will be required in RDR2 and you can only use what you’re carrying, while you can store larger weapons on your horse. Read more about the Red Dead Redemption 2 weaponry here.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms. Stay tuned to Rocket Chainsaw for more news and leaks as we get it, as well as an extensive review post-launch. For more information, head to the official RDR2 website here.
