New Jerusalem: A Home For The Marston Family

As the events of Red Dead Redemption II unfold and we see Arthur’s story come to it’s natural conclusion the extensive epilogue gives the player a glimpse of what life looks like for the remaining members of the Van Der Linde gang.

In this short section you play as John Marston and with the help of Charles and Uncle set about building a home for John, Abigail and Jack.

This my favourite moment in the game. It is the perfect palete cleanser for what has gone and what is yet to come. A brief moment of joy, adopted familial togetherness and a renewed sense of perspective. This scene creates a subtle transition in preparing the player to culminate their respective narrative journeys and lay the foundations (no pun intended) for the events to follow in Red Dead Redemption.
