Red Dead Redemption 2: Undead Nightmare Teased?

Evidence is found within Red Dead Redemption 2 that clearly suggests for a second Undead Nightmare DLC.

The original Red Dead Redemption had a standalone expansion pack titled Undead Nightmare that added a zombie horror-themed single-player campaign, multiplayer modes and cosmetics. Players really loved this idea of an alternate reality take on the game.

When Red Dead Redemption 2 launched a month ago as a prequel to the Western-themed action-adventure title from 2010, everyone wondered to themselves that whether or not developer/publisher Rockstar Games will release the DLC campaign for RDR2.

Recently, evidence were found and shared on social media that suggests a second Undead Nightmare DLC on its way. Reddit user BrodytheBeast20 found a creepy Easter egg in a well near Tall Trees that is a direct nod to the acclaimed horror experience.

Although many players are already done with the story campaign and jumped into multiplayer mode Red Dead Online, we would like to warn you that if you haven't finished the game and want to stay away from any spoilers, you should hold your horses here.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2.

Awright, just like the previous title, RDR2 features a playable epilogue where a substitute main character takes place of the protagonist and the control is switched. The game shifts control from Arthur Morgan to John Marston and taking him down to a well in Tall Trees will lead you to the following.

This hint is more than obvious and a bit on the nose but you can still see it in the dark deep down the well if you light it up with a lantern. Moving the camera angle will show a skeletal-face of Marston, which clearly resembles to the promotional image of the Undead Nightmare DLC.

Now it could either be a simple nod to the original campaign or it could simply foreshadowing his tragic ending after he put up a valiant last stand at the end of the Red Dead Redemption. If this is nothing but a reference to the past, then there is not much to be excited for.

Undead Nightmare was a lengthy playthrough set in the original map of RDR creating a different world with familiar characters. The prequel may follow the same formula to cook up a zombie thriller starring John Marston as playable hero once again.

Aside from an engaging storyline and gameplay, Red Dead Redemption 2 is full of Easter eggs here and there. If one of them turns out to be a tease for an upcoming expansion, it would really be great and would be a better plan than the ones you keep hearing from Dutch.
