While this gang of outlaws will constantly be on the run, it appears the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be much bigger than the previous installment. The video introduces players to the overall gameplay, including the handsome world and its characters.
And that means, just as fans would hope and expect, that this could end up being the best-looking console video game of the generation.
Rockstar Games has saddled up with the gameplay footage of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Sure, all the trailers were created using in-engine footage, but they give little hint as to how the game will actually play.
What did you like most about the trailer?
So far, we know that the game is built in the RAGE engine which uses similar techniques to render characters that GTAV used - a notable step up from the first Red Dead Redemption game. After releasing three cinematic trailers for Red Dead Redemption 2 over the past several months, Rockstar has dropped the official gameplay trailer.More news: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: Alex Jones 'Hasn't Violated Rules'
This Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer is a six-minute window into the game, exclusively featuring video captured in-game.
Stay tuned for our in-depth analysis of the gameplay trailer.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on October 26th 2018.
As previously stated, you play as Arthur Morgan, part of the Van der Linde Gang.
And in case you had any doubts at all, it looks freaking wonderful. What's interesting is the morality system that the game appears to be shooting for, as you're in control of how honourable Arthur can be.
