It’s snowing across the world in Red Dead Redemption 2, and players are wondering if Rockstar snuck on a secret vacation or a Christmas event.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is not known to have any impromptu events in the world. Rockstar tends to focus on Grand Theft Auto Online for this type of content, due to its popularity and monetization, and Red Dead Redemption 2 seems to be aging out of content updates. It goes without saying, Red Dead Redemption 2 players were quite surprised to find out what appears to be a Christmas occasion in the game. In fact, the event is just subtle enough that Red Dead Redemption 2 players wondered if this was an event.


What is happening, or at least has happened, in Red Dead Redemption 2 is snow. It’s not just a little snow either. It was reported that it was snowing everywhere in Red Dead Redemption 2, including in the swamp and elsewhere. It was even said that snow was accumulating on the ground, giving Red Dead Redemption 2sets up a white Christmas energy. The players simply logged in Red Dead Redemption 2 keep playing and find that snow was falling everywhere they went.

Since the apparent event is just a snowfall in the game, many Red Dead Redemption 2 players are skeptical of the situation. It might just be a random coincidence, after all. Some users might confuse an automated story event, a mod that triggered a snow event, or something else. The first person to draw attention to Reddit even later described it as a problem. Others believe it to be an event that happened in Red Dead Redemption 2 before, although the consensus seems to be that this has only ever happened in multiplayer and not in single player.

While there is absolutely some confusion over what is going on, many players believe it is Rockstar offering a special Christmas event to Red Dead Redemption 2 players he didn’t have before. It is not known if this is true, however. While many people said they saw snow on Reddit, many more said they went online to play and not experienced the same.

A part of Red Dead Redemption 2the most excited fans even hoped that there would be something more to the snowy event than what has yet been discovered, painting Red Dead Redemption 2 for proof of a quest or any other content related to Christmas. Unfortunately, they did not find anything, which gives credence to the idea that the snow was an insect. Plus, it seems unlikely that Rockstar would add a holiday event without mentioning it.

Whether this is an official change from Rockstar to give Red Dead Redemption 2 a more holiday-oriented atmosphere or just a problem, it’s fun to see the in-game community come together for a little holiday cheer. Here is hoping that some Red Dead Redemption 2 players can still log in and see snow on Christmas. Otherwise, Grand Theft Auto Online should have snow until December 29th.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
