Hold onto your hats, cowboys. As we’re counting down another two months for one of the most anticipated games of the year, Rockstar Games is giving us a look into the gameplay of Red Dead Redemption 2 which will arrive in the new gameplay trailer tonight at 11pm.
This will mark the fourth trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 since it was announced in October 2016. Previous trailers have shown us a new protagonist, Arthur Morgan who is also an enforcer of Dutch van der Linde’s gang, which was the very same gang that the outlaw John Marston was involved before.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will take us 12 years prior to the first Red Dead Redemption. From what we know, this upcoming game entails the slippery slope of van der Linde’s gang after a job gone wrong, causing destructive internal rifts between gang members and every bounty hunter as well as federal agents in America on the hunt for their heads, which led Morgan to choose between his own ideals or the loyalty for the gang.
Looking back at all of the trailers, Rockstar Games carefully fleshes out some new characters and returning characters as well as tracking shots of the wild west in 1889’s America while still keeping us in the dark regarding the core plot of the game. This time around, I hope we’ll get to see more rugged Western open-world action by focusing on Arthur Morgan’s square jaw for a while. Perhaps the new trailer will bring modern changes to the gunfights or more horse riding towards the sunset.
