As promised, Rockstar has just unloaded a brand-new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer out for the masses.
Thankfully, Red Dead Redemption 2 is still scheduled for its October 26 release for later this year. In terms of new content, the trailer showcases a lot more of the story beats present in the upcoming game, specifically delving into the life of Arthur Morgan and the Can der Linde gang, a robbery and the very essence of the Wild West, encapsulated in an interesting illusion to fire.
Visually the game looks stunning and even more cinematic than ever before thanks to the power of current-gen consoles.
Rockstar also took the time to update the plot summary for Red Dead Redemption 2, which states:
“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.”
Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available October 26 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will be a prequel to the original game, players will assume the role of Arthur Morgan of the Dutch van der Linde gang.
