Red Dead Redemption 2’s release date is nearly here, and as with any big game release, the leaks have started to appear. The game’s full map has emerged online, courtesy of Reddit users Mco_yum_yum and tomcruise_momshoes. Take a look at the map–which comes from the official game guide–below. [Update: The initial image has disappeared, but you can see another look at it below.]

It appears Red Dead Redemption 2 will contain a fair chunk of the original game’s map: Flat Iron Lake is visible in the leaked image, as are Tall Trees, Armadillo, and more. Mexico doesn’t appear to be included, but there are of course a number of new locations we haven’t yet explored.

A game that size understandably takes up a lot of data–at least 99 GB in total, to be precise. That’s how big Red Dead Redemption 2’s file size is if you’re playing from a PS4 disc; those who download the game on PS4 will need an additional 50 GB, while Xbox One users will need 107 GB free to install the open-world title. Pre-loading is already available for digital customers, and pre-ordering also gets you added benefits such as the Ardennes War Horse, Outlaw Survival Kit, extra cash in Red Dead Redemption 2’s story mode, and bonus GTA$ for Grand Theft Auto V‘s GTA Online mode. You can read more in our Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-order guide.
