Red Dead Redemption 2 Receives New Art and Bios Highlighting its Cities and Towns

Rockstar Games has released new art and information on the cities and towns players will visit in Red Dead Redemption 2 for PS4 and Xbox One.

The highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 releases in just over a month, but Rockstar Games has stayed surprisingly tight-lipped about the game. Two weeks ago, new character art and bios for the game were released, and today Rockstar did the same for the various cities and towns dotting the open world of Red Dead Redemption 2. 

First up is Valentine, a “rough and tumble town” located in the Heartlands of New Hanover. The town hosts a lot of livestock auctions, resulting in it being populated by gruff ranchers, traders, cowboys, and prostitutes. Next up is Annesburg, which is located in Roanoke Ridge, New Hanover. This is mainly a mining town where working conditions and pay are both bad, making it one of the more unsavory spots players will visit in Red Dead Redemption 2. 

After that, they highlighted Saint Denis, a larger city located in the Bayou NWA of the swampy Lemoyne. This city is a trading hot spot, and home to mostly socialites, businessmen, and sailors, as well as down on their luck thieves and beggars. Lemoyne is also home to Rhodes, which seems like a typical town on the surface, but suffers from rampant corruption and warring plantation families. Players can also find Lagras in Leymone, though this is just a small settlement in the swamps.

Mount Hagen is a is a snowy town located on its namesake, and is the main passageway through the western mountain range. Strawberry is a growing town in the Big Valley of West Elizabeth with a mayor more focused on attracting tourists than pleasing his own constituents.

You can check out the new art below. Red Dead Redemption 2 releases for PS4 and Xbox One on October 16, and you can currently pre-order the StandardSpecial, or Ultimate Edition on Amazon.
