After nearly eight months since Red Dead Redemption 2’s previous trailer, a new one has finally been revealed by Rockstar Games. This time around there’s greater focus on the game’s narrative, giving us more insight into the inner turmoil of new protagonist Arthur Morgan, as well as information about the Van der Linde gang.
As previously revealed, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the original RDR. In a press release, Rockstar wrote that the game tells the “story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive.”
The latest trailer makes it feel like the end of the road for outlaws, who seem to feel their time has come. The era of the Wild West was very much on its way out by the year 1899, which is the time period in which the game takes place. In addition, there were a multitude of narrative and mechanical elements teased about the game, along with the perhaps unsurprising confirmation that RDR protagonist John Marston–another member of the Van der Linde gang–will make an appearance. Here are 11 fascinating details that we caught from the latest Red Dead Redemption II trailer, including Marston and one aspect this game will apparently reveal about him.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to release on October 26 for PS4 and Xbox One. However, as with the first game, Rockstar hasn’t announced any plans for a PC version. Hopefully, as with Grand Theft Auto V, we’ll eventually see the game also make its way to PC and Steam. As for the release date itself, it’s been delayed in the past, but Rockstar parent company Take-Two has said it is “confident” that the game won’t have another setback.
