A second trailer for wild west epic Red Dead Redemption 2 sets the scene for a trek into unruly lands, introducing a new main character and bringing back another from the game's well received 2010 predecessor.
The trailer gave away several details about the gameplay and storyline to expect from the much-loved western video game. Players will take on the role of brand new protagonist, Arthur Morgan, who is a member of the notorious Van der Linde gang. The game is Red Dead Redemption 2 will be the first game company since the release of Grand Theft Auto V in 2013.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released in spring 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
It is possible that with the recent surge in popularity of the battle royale genre, "Red Dead Redemption" may adopt the mode and release a "Red Dead Royale" mode, which will utilize the game's sprawling setting to host some kill-or-be-killed action.
Rockstar Games previously announced the game in October 2016.
You might think this would have been obvious, but my cynical self was prepared for anything, including some Red Dead themed outfits for GTA Online... Meanwhile, Dutch Van Der Linde is making a comeback as he stands as the leader of the gang. The story of the game will revolve around Morgan, as he and his gang "fight and steal their way across the vast American heartland".
A friendly reminder that PlayStation owners will get additional benefits for Red Dead Redemption 2, including first access to select online content.
