Rockstar Games have just revealed a new poster for the western-themed Red Dead Redemption 2. The poster is presented as a Wanted poster for the frontrunner of the Van Der Linde Gang, Dutch Van Der Linde, who was also part of the series’ prior entry, Red Dead Redemption, which launched in 2010.
The poster fully describes the details of why Dutch Van Der Linde is “wanted dead or alive” by the Pinkerton Detective Agency.
Dutch Van Der Linde is declared responsible for multiple counts of murder along with a robbery of $150,000 in banknotes from a boat on Blackwater.
The announcement from this Red Dead Redemption 2 poster goes on to show that the gang leader will be seen in the upcoming game portraying a major role compared to his role in the previous installment.
The reason why Dutch Van Der Linde is wanted by the Pinkerton Detective Agency is that he is the leader of the Van Der Linde Gang and our protagonist, Morgan, is also part of the same gang. Given that the game is a prequel to Red Dead Redemption we might get more insight into the Dutch Van Der Linde character.
In the poster, Dutch is described as a man with dark hair and a mustache in his mid-forties who “dresses smartly”.
These details certainly add flavor to the deepest open world gaming experience that Red Dead Redemption 2 is offering.
Furthermore, him being shown as “a charismatic, manipulative individual believed to harbor subversive, anti-American ideals” depicts a bold character.
This makes Dutch Van Der Linde really interesting to look forward to because such a character would add genuineness to the gameplay experience when blended with the highly detailed interaction system of Red Dead Redemption 2. So, we shall anticipate him to be playing a bigger part in Red Dead Redemption 2 than before.
In addition to that, he has got various bank and train robberies to his name while leading the Van Der Linde Gang, which makes him more of a threat to the authorities.
Lastly, Dutch Van Der Linde has been reported to be last seen in the Big Valley, West Elizabeth while heading towards north into the Grizzlies.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an open-world action adventure game in development at Rockstar Games and is scheduled to launch on October 26, 2018, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
