Rockstar Games just dropped the third trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 today. The latest preview showcased a more in-depth look at the game and gave players an idea of what to expect when they take the role of Arthur Morgan this coming fall. Check out the trailer posted above.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will follow “the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van Der Linda gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America to survive.” The previous trailer released for the game depicted Morgan as a debt collector for Dutch’s Gang. Furthermore, the trailer seems to confirm that the protagonist of the first game, John Marston, will make an appearance in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption 2 set in 1899, will serve as a prequel to the previous game, which was set in 1911 after the closure of the frontier. Check out the game’s official description below:
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.”
After having gone through a series of multiple delays, Red Dead Redemption 2 is now set to release on October 26 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which puts the launch of this one eight years after the release of its predecessor. Currently, Rockstar Games has not announced a PC version of the game to the disappointment of multiple fans on that platform.
