Set hype levels to an all-new high as a new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 is here and it has a lot more to show us than we have seen in the past. It shows off all kinds of fun old west things as well as something that look in-game or at least in the game engine. There is no real description from Rockstar Games on it, but it definitely looks that way. I could be off but I truly doubt it. Nonetheless, we have a new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 to get us all excited for the October 26th release on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It is yet another great look at the game even if there is not some solid confirmation on where it all comes from in the game.
As I am sure that you are not going to keep reading due to the hype for Red Dead Redemption 2, I will let you have at it. Have a look at it and see what little extra we can find out about the game just from what we have here today. Do enjoy.
Red Dead Redemption 2 — Official Trailer #3
America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.
After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.
If you were eagle-eyed there, you may have caught a glimpse of a young John Marston there in Red Dead Redemption 2. Something that we all figured was going to happen here but now we have a clear shot of it all. Given the link to the main gang in this title in makes sense. It also firmly shows how prior in the story line of the franchise that Red Dead Redemption 2 is taking place. Unless all of this is a flashback or storytelling element. Given that we have a sequel numbering for the game and the story is a prequel, at least so far, it could make sense. That or Rockstar Games is just doing whatever they want with normal conventions of numbering and such. I guess we will need to wait and find out soon or in October.
How are you feeling about Red Dead Redemption 2 now that we have yet another great trailer to look at?
