Earlier this year a Red Dead Redemption 2 player has failed in a restricted area since the first game: Mexico. Now another player managed to transform into a different restricted zone on the opposite side of the map: the snowy mountains to the north.
So what did the player think? Well, not much. But there is area to explore: like frozen lakes, ice walls (Red Dead Redemption 2 world confirmed as flat), and clear mountains. There are even goats and other wild animals to interact with.
Gotta crash off the map. There are whole frozen lakes outside the boundaries that would normally never be seen! Currently exploring what else may be beyond the reach … of r / reddeadredemption
So how do you get to those inaccessible snowy realms? Well, there seem to be some ways, but the most common and reliable way is through the invisible wall west of Barrow Lagoon. Once you hit the mountain there that can not be climbed, mount the camp. Once in the camp, stand up and you will find yourself on the said invisible free crest to explore until it turns into an icicle. Of course, make sure you have the proper warm clothing before you do any of this.
As for why all this is detailed, textured, etc. – if no one can access it normally – it's not because Rockstar Games has plans to use it for the DLC. I mean, I could be doing this. But that's not the point. The point is that developers do this often to ensure you get to the end of the map: it's not just empty empty space. It is a common thing and should not be used as fuel for any kind of DLC talk that expands in that area. But that would be pretty cool.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. At the time of publishing this, there was no word about a Nintendo Switch port or a PC port. However, while the former is very, very unlikely – probably impossible – the latter leaked several times, suggesting that it is in the pipeline and maybe even soon.
