Here's a synopsis: Red Dead Redemption 2 will act as a prequel to the 2010 installment and will follow outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang trying to survive in the wild, unforgiving American West. In the gameplay trailer, we got a look at some swamp-swelling alligators, bears, eagles, and wolves.
Red Dead Redemption 2 features a vast American landscape to rob, shoot, and travel across.
In a tweet, the developer has confirmed we can expect the game this year - in 2018.
Similar to that of Red Red Redemption, players will be able to ride and walk across several different landscapes, including mountain environments, swamplands, deserts, and forests.
But Rockstar also emphasises that you can make friends or enemies of anyone you meet, by the way you respond to them. So far, we have seen trailers, but it has been mostly cut scenes instead of actual gameplay elements.
This is a world that is rich in depth and detail, all created to be explored on horseback or on foot, as you live the fateful journey of a gang of outlaws on the run across America.
Gang member interaction is at the forefront in this trailer.
So, looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 will play a lot like the first Red Dead Redemption!
Can you believe that Red Dead Redemption 2's release date is less than three months away? This system sees non-player characters react differently to the protagonist depending on actions that the player has taken. Cowboys, weapons, in-game mechanics, location; you know what, just watch the trailer for yourself. The melee combat has also been heavily reworked from previous Rockstar games to allow much more intense and realistic brawls rather than clunky fist fights like in GTA V or the original Red Dead.
Currently, Rockstar Games is targeting an October 26 release date for Red Dead Redemption 2, and it's headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at launch, with a few different versions to choose from.
And while you're here, let's just allow the horse animation and physics work speak for themselves.
