Yesterday, Rockstar Games announced that the first gameplay trailer for the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 would be released today. True to their promise, you can now watch the latest gameplay footage for the upcoming game below.
The latest preview provides an in-depth look at the game’s world, how players would interact with the Van der Linde Gang, and so much more. As seen in the trailer, Red Dead Redemption 2 is set in a vast American landscape featuring mountainous regions and towns that are on the brink of modernization. Players will have the ability to switch locations seamlessly, and each area will have a variety of missions, quests, and activities for players to enjoy.
“In the late 1800,s America was evolving, on its way to becoming the most powerful country in the world,” as narrated in the trailer. “New immigrants arrived, thriving outposts became towns, and civilization was spreading rapidly into the huge wild, and lawless frontier. With Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar Games aims to create a living world that’s not simply open, but deeper, more interactive and detailed than ever, combining action, storytelling, and gameplay in new ways as you live, ride, and fight to survive as an outlaw in a notorious gang.”
In the game, players take the role of Arthur Morgan, who is part of the Van der Linde gang, pursued across the country by Lawmen who are adamant in putting an end to the age of outlaws. Interaction with fellow gang members is essential in the game’s overall narrative and gameplay, which will include activities from missions, hunting, fishing, or even engaging in robbery.
Red Dead Redemption 2 also gives players the ability to interact with most of the characters in the game. Given that players play as an outlaw, they are given the option to become an upstanding citizen or become a notorious troublemaker. Players can also choose how their character interacts with animals in the game, especially horses who are essential in Red Dead Redemption 2’s gameplay.
After experiencing delays in the past, Take-Two Interactive said that the game’s release date wouldn’t change anymore, which means that everything is set to release on October 26 for the PS4 and Xbox One. A few days ago, Take-Two expressed their confidence in the game by saying that Red Dead Redemption 2 will undoubtedly “revolutionize” the gaming industry, and with the gameplay footage revealed so far, Take-Two and Rockstar Games might be on the right track.
