Red Dead Redemption 2 is set in an enormous area – stretching from the forests of West Elizabeth to the mountains of Ambarino. RDR2’s developer Rockstar designed the map to encapsulate the “range of America’s heartland and frontier areas from the 1800s.” Although the game’s makers have refused to specify the exact size of the map, it is believed to be their biggest to date.
The Red Dead Redemption 2 open game map is believed to be so large it even dwarfs the gigantic Grand Theft Auto V map.
And this is not only due to its sheer size – the fact Red Dead 2 is set in the 1880s means characters walk and ride horses, as opposed to the supercars and planes featured in Grand Theft Auto V.
It is only by remembering this that gamers can appreciate the amount of available playtime Red Dead Redemption 2 offers.
The vast open-world map stretches from the mining town of Annesburg to the snowy peaks of Mount Hagen.
The 2018 prequel features most of the map from the original Red Dead – covering everything north of the San Luis River.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is believed to be an incredible four times larger than the original.
And it is not only the size which has been improved.
The 2010 version has been upgraded upon with gorgeous graphics which give it a hyper realistic feel.
Unfortunately, much of the map will only be available once the epic story mode has been completed, meaning many players may never fully enjoy it.
Despite Rockstar delivering the massive map, it has not prevented insatiable gamers from wanting more.
How to reach Mexico in Red Dead Redemption 2:
Red Dead players have managed to exploit a glitch in the map which allows you to travel to Mexico.
The area, south of Rio Bravo was not intended to yet be reached.
The jarringly low-res terrain does not feature any real points of interest bar a couple of abandoned buildings and structures.
Fans are speculating about the area’s purpose.

And others have speculated it will form part of an upgrade that Rockstar delivers later on in the title’s lifespan.
In order to get to Mexico, gamers need to travel to the Westernmost point of New Austin.
