Red Dead Redemption 2 is a beautiful game and its aesthetics stretch beyond the game world as well. The massive map holds a ton of secrets and unique experiences for players to discover, including a rare instance of a lightning strike being captured striking the Saint Denis church. In another moment of captured beauty, a player manages to spot a lightning strike right on the precipice of the world map above Mexico.

The systems of Red Dead Redemption 2's open-world are truly astounding, with the world feeling even more beautiful once all these systems work together in harmony. The weather mechanics present in the game are especially notable in this regard, with players being able to witness the beauty of the world in a whole new light as the weather changes. This applies to thunderstorms as well, with most players absolutely loving the idea of riding their horse through a major storm featuring thunder, snow, or dust due to how cinematic the entire experience can become.

While the land of Mexico might be inaccessible in Red Dead Redemption 2, it still serves as a great and scenic background that makes the game world feel more alive and lived-in. It seems that Rockstar went the extra mile to make this country look as realistic as possible, and one player discovered just how fleshed out the world really is when they managed to capture a rare and amazing shot of a solitary lighting strike during a thunderstorm right on top of Mexico itself.

While it might be rare, it's possible that an unsuspecting player might be hit by thunder, leading to a premature and unexpected Game Over. It's a rare occurrence that most people might never have experienced even once during their playthrough. However, the mere fact that such an occurrence is a possibility is an amazing fact in itself. With this context, the player who witnessed a lightning strike in Mexico should count themselves lucky that this event didn't happen right in front of them!

Regardless of Rockstar's current reputation, there's no denying the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 is still one of the greatest open-world titles ever made. While the first game allowed players to explore Mexico to their heart's content, many players were disappointed to see the area no accessible. However, since the game world itself was expanded to such a massive degree that most players absolutely cherished the act of exploring the massive world that Rockstar had created. This scenic lightning strike is a great way to showcase the game's strengths from a visual perspective, and any player who wishes to get into Red Dead Redemption 2 will find themselves enjoying a number of moments like this.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for Google Stadia, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
