Red Dead Online players are encountering what look like zombie NPCs in the game, which could hint at an Undead Nightmare sequel set for Red Dead Redemption 2 (via Polygon).
Reddit user groats_active posted a spooky screenshot of a bedraggled woman with glowing eyes lurking in a swamp, and others have shared their stories of finding dead bodies that look like zombies. These could be glitches that arrived with last week’s update, as some players theorise that it’s the result of the cholera outbreak causing models to act a little funky.
But cholera doesn’t affect the colour of sufferers’ eyes, creative license and fictional Wild West world notwithstanding. And, John Marston sported luminous yellow eyes on the cover of Undead Nightmare, Red Dead Redemption’s horror-themed expansion. There are reports that shooting the creepy corpses counts as a murder, as if the body isn’t actually dead. Of course, Halloween is coming soon, and speculation is shuffling towards an Undead Nightmare revival for Red Dead Online.
However, it’s just as likely that these are glitches and are not actually warning of a zombie infestation. Reddit user indiethetvshow said that they were lured to the zombie by the sound of a barking dog, and then was attacked by a bandit. ‘I believe this corpse is part of a trap and glitched to stand up for me,’ they explained. Rockstar Games has not confirmed anything to do with the glowy ghouls, but once we hear news of an update, you’ll be the first to know.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
