Red Dead Redemption 2 Mod Pack Unlocked Parts of Mexico
The unused part of the map has always been in the game, but players have been slowly adding to it.
One of the characteristics of Red Dead Redemption 2 is that it shipped with an elusive part of the map: Mexico. In the past players have accidentally spawned there in Red Dead Online, and there’s a way of accessing it in singleplayer mode too. Longtime cowpokes will learn that visiting Mexico was a big story beat in the first Red Dead Redemption, and the expectation persists that Rockstar North will at some point use this part of the map for the Online mode.
Until that happens, however, there are always modders. And Red Dead 2’s had quite a few working on adding elements to Mexico over the years, which is why Siemreaper has pulled them all together at Nexus mods under the does-what-it-says-on-the-tin title of Mexico. You’ll need Lenny’s Mod Loader and Script Hook RDR2 to get the mod pack up and running. It collects ‘lore-friendly work from the modders RedMaxBR, SergeantJoe, AClassySliceOfToast, and DuPz0r, which range from recreations of particular settings to very useful stuff like a bridge to get you over there.
RedMaxBR’s work is deserving of special notice, as they’ve recreated multiple settlements with the map editor, and they look fabulous. One word of caution, however: this mod pack will let you explore some cool Mexican settings, but there’s no real ‘game’ in Red Dead Redemption 2’s Mexico. This is a mod for the meanderers which, fortunately enough, is a big Red Dead vibe.
