Apart from being a great game, Grand Theft Auto V has also provided some creative gamers with the tools to create some truly unique videos. One such recent creation is the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer, recreated in the world of Los Santos.
Created by the youtuber Freddy Los Santos, the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer has been created entirely in Rockstar’s other albeit modern day open world game, Grand Theft Auto V. Since the game itself provides players tools for such content creation, no external softwares Source Filmmaker were used to change the assets.
That is perhaps why there are some obvious changes in the recreated trailer. After all, Grand Theft Auto V doesn’t let players ride horses. For that, Freddy substituted the horse riding section of the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer with characters riding on bikes.
The music, narration and the general somber tone of the environment remains the same once again highlighting how both games are so different from each other despite being from the same developers.
Freddy Lost Santos has also published another video which puts both trailers side by side to show the similarities in them and the result is indeed incredible.
The video only further ends up hyping eager fans interested in seeing more of the game, especially since the original reveal didn’t really show any gameplay. Given the popularity of the first Red Dead Redemption game, Rockstar has some really big shoes to fill and ensure fans aren’t disappointed.
Take-Two’s CEO recently talked about the “emotional depth” of Red Dead Redemption 2 and claimed the fans will not be disappointed, whether it comes to the story or gameplay.
You can expect there to be great story elements and great gameplay elements.
After the massive success of Grand Theft Auto V on all platforms and how well the community, especially PC gamers, received the game thanks to very well done optimization, Take-Two is also intent on making sure that they don’t drop the ball with Red Dead Redemption 2.
