The first gameplay trailer for Rockstar Games’ open world Western shooter Red Dead Redemption II has released.
The highly anticipated sequel to Rockstar Games’ 2010 game Red Dead Redemption is a few months away. After spending the last six years supporting and updating 2013’s Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, the celebrated publisher and developer is ready to leave behind the world of Los Santos and embark on a new journey through the Wild West once again. This time though, the game will not be a sequel to Red Dead Redemption but rather a prequel to the story of John Marston. Red Dead Redemption II follows the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan, who is a member of Dutch Van Der Linde’s gang. To those who are unfamiliar with the lore of Red Dead, the Van Der Linde gang was the band of outlaws that John Marston was apart of before the events of Red Dead Redemption so you can expect an experience from Marston in the game.
Red Dead Redemption II was announced in October 2016, with very little information surrounding the title being revealed since then. For the past two years, Rockstar has only published a few stills and trailers, all which were captured in-game. The most recent trailer debuted in May, which revealed small tidbits about the world and the story. Initially, Red Dead Redemption II was slated for a Fall 2017 release, but the game reportedly had several issues that made the company reconsider releasing it. It would be delayed a second time after being set for a rumored spring 2018 release, which did not happen much to the dismay of long-time Red Dead fans. At the same time though, this should not be a surprise. Red Dead Redemption suffered similar issues before it was released.
Now just two months before the game’s October 26th release date, consumers are finally getting a better look at gameplay and the world of Red Dead Redemption II. The game is now available for pre-order and if consumers pre-order the game by August 15th they will be eligible to receive a treasure map, which will be useful in-game.
