Red Dead Redemption Fan Recreates Official Screenshots In The Sequel
Red Dead Redemption 2 (and its predecessor) remain the most popular open-world games despite the fact that it has been almost a decade since the first cowboy-shooter was released. Their dedicated fan community has continually displayed its creativity through stunning cosplays and even replicating Arthur Morgan’s unique drawing style. One gamer decided to pay tribute to Rockstar Games’ western legacy with the in-game Photo-Mode features.
Red Dead Redemption was a hit with gamers. Red Dead Redemption featured a vibrant open world, a classic western soundtrack by David Ferguson, Woody Jackson, and attention to detail that is rarely seen in the industry. RDR’s success led to RDR 2 which won four of the eight nominated 2018 Game Awards wins. It is evident that gamers have been influenced by the beautiful imagery and shoot-outs associated with the action-adventure series.
Reddit user RipVanWinke11 now has amazing results with Red Dead Redemption 2’s in-game photo mode. This tribute features John Marston as the main character. This graphically modern portrayal of the crooked absolution seeking outlaw offers a glimpse into what a Red Dead Redemption remake might look like.
The gallery’s centerpiece is a recreation of the outlaw, arranged in front a classic crimson-gold backdrop. A large weapon pointed outwards completes the look. The original image is the box art from the Red Dead Redemption. It was first revealed in 2010. Since then, it has been a hit with gamers and artists. One artist used the style to create an interactive Red Dead Redemption iPhone UI.
These recreations were based on Red Dead Redemption screenshots. They are reminiscent of a scene from a spaghetti western. John Marston is seen gallantly performing many actions, such as pulling his six-shooter and trudging down Blackwater streets, escorted along by Pinkerton agents. The “Elegant Suit” is the reference to the famous poker suit that was worn by the first player in a game of poker.
The artist paid great attention to this gallery of recreations and it is clear that Red Dead Redemption is a very important game for gamers. It is certain that John Marston, Arthur Morgan and their gang will continue to be a prominent part of gaming, unlike other games which are often forgotten.
