Red Dead Redemption 2 players can currently explore a huge area not previously available, and the best part? There are absolutely zero mods required to check it out.
It's no secret that mods are a huge part of what keeps Red Dead Redemption 2 alive in the year of our lord 2023. Rockstar Games has no intention of supporting the game, leaving it to fans to create new missions, maps, and ways to play. The good news is this particular area required zero modding, meaning even console shmucks like me can play.
Take a look at some of the finest Red Dead Redemption 2 wins and fails below!
As it turns out, it's actually possible to return to the island of Guarma and explore properly - something many of us won't have done during our first in-game visit.
For those who might not know, players visit Guarma towards the end of Red Dead Redemption 2's story when a job goes horribly wrong. The entire aim of this particular mission is to leave and never return, so it's little surprise that you can't officially navigate Arthur Morgan or John Marston back for another trip. However, if you really want to fulfil your wanderlust you can make your way back to Guarma with some patience and a few glitches.
As explained in a video from from YouTube channel 'Basement Gamers Bros', players need to activate a glitch that will allow them to exit the main map. Once you've pulled this off, you head to the east bank of Lannahechee to grab a canoe, before head north for an awful lot of rowing. The YouTuber notes it's all too easy to lose track of where you are during this part, so be sure to stick to the right-hand side of the river.
While you'd expect returning to Guarma would include very little of value, there's actually a few things to do. I'm not sure whether Rockstar intended to make this part of the game longer or not, but there's treasure to find and animals not seen on the mainland. You can also simply take in the sights, which are of course considerable.
