Red Dead Redemption 2 Fan Loved the Game So Much That They’re Making Their Own Real-Life Beecher’s Hope

A Red Dead Redemption 2 player feels so inspired by the game’s epilogue that they’ve decided to make their own real-life Beecher’s Hope.

Red Dead Redemption 2’s campaign is an odyssey of a story which follows Arthur Morgan and the slow decline of the Van der Linde gang. As a prequel story to the first Red Dead Redemption game, this campaign also contains a lot of the key moments in the life the first game’s main character, John Marston. These are moments fans would have already been vaguely aware of as they were alluded to by characters in the first game, such as how John got his iconic facial scars or how he left the gang after being shot during a robbery.


But it’s after Red Dead Redemption 2’s 60-hour main campaign finishes that the game really dedicates itself to tying up all the loose story threads before the events of the first Red Dead Redemption. The game has an epilogue chapter hiding another 6-7 hours of story before the credits roll.

The gang’s story in Red Dead Redemption 2’s main campaign is a long and slow-burning tale of loyalty and perseverance, and how those things can eventually unravel over time. RDR2’s epilogue story by contrast follows a lot more wholesome themes of family and leaving the past behind, which ends the game on a hopeful note. A Reddit user named callmeboonie has found themselves particularly inspired by the events of this epilogue and has posted a picture of land they purchased in the countryside, where they plan to “make my own Beecher’s Hope.”

The Reddit user says playing the game made them fall in love with the idea of living on a ranch in the countryside, and now they have decided to make that dream a reality. Calling the land their own Beecher’s Hope is in reference to the inspiring extended sequence in Red Dead Redemption 2’s epilogue which sees the player build the Beecher’s Hope house where the Marston family and Uncle live in the first Red Dead Redemption.

The image callmeboonie has shared of their land looks like the kind of flat open space that would fit perfectly in the world of Red Dead Redemption 2. The picture is even punctuated with a suitably Western-style sunset. The game’s story and setting are so well realized that many Red Dead Redemption players have felt inspired to make impressive real world things, though perhaps none are more in line with the themes of the game than an actual house in the countryside.

The Red Dead Redemption 2 house building sequence is a heartwarming montage with a jaunty song played over the top. The whole scene is so wholesome that it’s hard to imagine that anyone didn’t feel a slight urge to build a house in the countryside after playing it. But actually following through and building one for real is quite admirable.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
