Red Dead Redemption 2 - 5 Gang Members Identity Revealed, More Proof On Leaked Map

Yesterday, Rockstar Games released Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer #2 and it carried a lot of interesting details related to the story, lead protagonist, setting, and many other things. The first thing that we came to know from this new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer was that the story is a prequel to Red Dead Redemption that was released in 2010 and the lead protagonist is Arthur Morgan - and not John Marston as rumored earlier. The official description of the trailer confirmed the storyline - here's what it read: "Red Dead Redemption 2 is a story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive."

The new trailer also gave us a glimpse at some of the activities that we will be doing in the game apart from robbing, fighting and stealing - and these activities are - hunting with Bows and Arrows, breaking horses and many others. That's all we could figure it out from the new trailer of Red Dead Redemption 2. Now, let's take a look at the things that members of RDR community have found - GTAForums user wagszilla posted an interesting image (you can check it out below) that gives us the identification of the 5 of the 7 Van der Linde gang members (Dutch Gang). 5 members that have been identified are - John Marston, Dutch Van Der Linde, Arthur Morgan, Bill Williamson, and Native.


Last but not the least, now we have some more proof that the leaked Red Dead Redemption 2 Map (it was leaked before Red Dead Redemption 2 was even confirmed to exist) is legit. Some of the sequences showcased in the trailer matches completely with the locations mentioned on the map. Users from GTAForums discovered four sequences in the new trailer that matches with the location details provided on the map. We have listed all the 4 instances below (all thanks to the users on GTAForums).


1 - Map Location Cornwall - It is located right next to a railroad track on the map. Here's a sequence in the trailer where Cornwall is written on the train boxcars.


2 - Map Location Heartland Oil Fields - It is located near the railroad on the map. Here's a sequence in the trailer where we see an Oil Well.


3 - Map Location Bayou NWA - It is Louisiana like locations, and in the trailer, we see a Louisiana type bayou


4 - On the map, we see a railroad near a river that makes a sharp curve, and in the trailer, we have a sequence that gives us a glimpse of a railroad near a river with exactly the same curve.
