If you haven’t been living under a rock today then you’ll probably know by now that the new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 has come out. The Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer footage was apparently recorded on a Playstation 4, and it looks absolutely amazing. Imagine how that’ll look on a premium console!
Red Dead Redemption 2, from what the trailer says, will tell the story of a gang of outlaws as they try and survive in the Old West. Being hunted by sheriffs and posses and getting into a lot of trouble is par for the course for bandits, but it seems like these guys will have a lot on their plates, going by the trailer alone.
While some players might have been looking for a return to the Marston family, playing bandits gives players the ability to do whatever they’d want, and get into a lot of interesting situations on the way.
You could even think of this as something like a Wild West version of Grand Theft Auto 5, the last game Rockstar produced; playing a group of criminals as they commit a variety of crimes while trying to avoid the authorities and likely dealing with other criminals along the way.
If you’re a fan of Western movies, the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer footage might even bring to mind some of those sorts of movies, for instance Sam Peckinpah’s “The Wild Bunch”, which brought the darkness and harsh realities of the Old West into such a harsh light that John Wayne had been heard to complain that Peckinpah killed the Western.
To see the Red Dead Redemption 2 footage, look up to watch the trailer for yourself. Red Dead Redemption 2 will be coming out in Spring of 2018 on the Xbox One and Playstation 4, and hopefully PC as well if Rockstar decides to port it over there.
