Rockstar have just released the first gameplay trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2. As well as all the expected cowboy fare, the trailer also shows off the game world, while giving us a good idea of how the story's going to play out.
Last week, Rockstar teased the fact that something Red Dead related would be happening today. A tweet from September 22 simply read “Thursday, September 28, 11am ET” against the same red backdrop that was used in the game’s initial teaser last year.
The trailer focuses on a Arthur Morgan, and shows a gang of outlaws making their way across the West. On top of that though, there’s a look at transport, with characters getting around on horses, of course, but also carriages, and the infamous train is making a return.
There’s also a look at the game’s amazing open-world, with beautiful views over snow-covered valleys. Unfortunately, those valleys are also filled with bears, so look out for some sort of hunting/crafting system as well.
Story-wise, the new game bleeds into its predecessor, and Red Dead Redemption's original antagonist, Dutch van der Linde, is definitely making a return. It would seem that the game is actually set further East than its predecessor, as the trailer's description references "the rugged heart of America."
Red Dead Redemption II is due to release in Spring 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One. You can check out the trailer in its entirety above. There’s no official ruling saying it’s coming to PC, but hey, Rockstar haven’t ruled it out.
