(CTN NEWS) – GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 share more similarities than one might initially notice, as both Rockstar games contain shared mysteries and enigmas.
Rockstar Games stands out prominently among its industry peers, primarily for its acclaimed Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto franchises.
These two series delve into the world of crime but are set in vastly different eras, with Red Dead Redemption 2 immersing players in the fading days of the Wild West and Grand Theft Auto exploring a more contemporary timeframe.
While, at first glance, these games may appear worlds apart due to their distinct settings, a closer look reveals a common thread that binds them: the element of mystery.
Intriguing narratives connect the titles, bridging the over century-long gap between the settings of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto 5.
Role-playing games (RPGs) often incorporate thrilling elements into their gameplay to fully engage players, and the Red Dead Redemption series is renowned for its intricate mysteries that challenge gamers to delve beneath the surface to discover crucial clues.
Even years after the release of its groundbreaking prequel, Red Dead Redemption 2, players continue to unearth new explanations for various in-game events, while some mysteries remain unsolved.
In contrast, the Grand Theft Auto franchise typically leans toward action-driven narratives with fewer enigmatic elements.
However, GTA 5 stands out with a handful of intriguing Easter eggs woven into its gameplay, some of which it shares with Red Dead Redemption 2.
UFOs in Mounts Chiliad and Shann in GTA 5 and RDR 2
Devotees of Rockstar Games are well aware of the developer’s penchant for incorporating UFO-related mysteries into their titles, a tradition dating back to at least Grand Theft Auto 4.
While one might anticipate such elements in more futuristic settings like Cyberpunk 2077, encountering UFOs in the late 19th and early 20th-century Wild West environment of the Red Dead Redemption franchise is a surprising twist for most players.
The enigma surrounding Mount Shann in Red Dead Redemption 2 bears a striking resemblance to the mysteries surrounding Mount Chiliad in Grand Theft Auto 5, serving as just one of the many intriguing connections between these two beloved franchises.
Revealing the mysteries hidden within GTA 5 proves to be a more intricate task compared to Red Dead Redemption 2.
By decoding a series of enigmatic messages, players are guided to the summit of Mount Chiliad, where, at 3 AM during rainy weather, they can witness the mesmerizing spectacle of a UFO in flight.
Mount Chiliad, the highest location on GTA 5’s map, features peculiar inscriptions near its peak depicting the mountain itself alongside three symbols: a UFO, an alien egg, and an individual donning a jetpack.
Red Dead Redemption 2 features multiple UFO sightings, with Hani’s Bethel and Mount Shann serving as intriguing locations.
Situated in The Heartlands of New Hanover, Hani’s Bethel is a cabin that holds a disturbing scene with several corpses.
Among the eerie discoveries is a piece of paper containing a Mysterious Sermon that mentions a figure known as Kuhkowaba.
Following the instructions in the letter, players who return to the cabin at the second hour under the half moon will witness a UFO hovering over the cabin for a brief moment, emitting a gentle green light before vanishing.
Reaching the summit of Mount Shann in Red Dead Redemption 2 unveils another UFO sighting, this time in the distance.
Some players have also reported rumors of a third UFO sighting within the game. The purpose and significance of these alien objects remain shrouded in mystery, much like many other enigmas hidden by Rockstar Games.
Gamers have expressed hope that these UFO sightings could be part of a broader narrative connecting the two games, offering a more comprehensive explanation for their presence in both titles.
Additionally, there are intriguing questions about the Kraffs and potential connections between characters in GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
The Epsilon Program Links RDR 2 and GTA 5 Together
The Epsilon Program, a recurring feature in the Grand Theft Auto series since San Andreas, has its founder, Cris Formage, hail Kraff as the Emperor of the fourth Paradigm.
The specifics of why Kraff holds such reverence in society remain elusive, but he plays a central role in the cult’s doctrines.
According to Epsilon beliefs, anyone bearing a birthmark over their right eye is considered a descendant of Kraff.
While Kraff is believed to possess mystical powers, he never physically appears in the franchise, shrouding his existence in mystery.
The Epsilon Tract collectibles in GTA 5 contain numerous references to Kraff. One significant piece of lore in the collection reveals that the cult worships Kraff when the Earth reaches the ninth Paradigm.
Interestingly, this collectible is located at the top of Mount Chiliad, where the UFO mystery originates, suggesting a potential link between the two mysteries.
In Red Dead Redemption 2, players encounter Francis Sinclair during the Geology for Beginners mission.
He resides in a cabin north of Strawberry and bears a birthmark over his right eye.
While this could be dismissed as a mere coincidence, the mission line reveals several strange connections that raise questions about his true identity and his potential link to the Kraff mythology.
During the Geology for Beginners mission in Red Dead Redemption 2, players encounter rock carvings that depict futuristic imagery, reminiscent of those found at Mount Chiliad in GTA 5. This connection between the two games’ mysteries has piqued the interest of fans.
In GTA 5, Carpa Tom, a member of the Epsilon Program, bears a resemblance to Francis Sinclair.
The mission in RDR 2 introduces players to Francis’ mother, who explains that her husband, Tom, recently passed away.
This has led to a prevailing theory in the Rockstar fanbase that Tom and Francis are time travelers, further fueling speculation and intrigue within the gaming community.
Players are eagerly anticipating more clarity on these mysteries in potential future releases like GTA 6 and Red Dead Redemption 3.
