When it first debuted, Red Dead Redemption received tons of praise for its unique gameplay and storytelling. I’ll be honest, I never got around to playing the first installment of the franchise, but you can bet your britches I’ll be diving headfirst into Red Dead Redemption 2.
Now let’s examine the new trailer released today by Rockstar Games. Revealing fresh Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay footage, the trailer is a breath of fresh air. For a while, many questioned the game’s actual appearance from moment to moment. Rockstar has offered trailers before that provided glimpses into the story, along with beautiful landscapes, but people wanted to know what they’d be playing.
Turns out, there’s nothing to worry about. The gameplay trailer is astounding. Similar to Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V, the open-world gameplay is going to leave players with hours upon mind-boggling hours of activities to complete. Being able to fully interact with the world around you is a definite highlight. There are tons of environments, from deserts to the mountains, with their own sets of challenges and unique aspects. Furthermore, Rockstar is going to release several more gameplay trailers in the coming weeks, each focusing on a different feature of the game.
Red Dead Redemption 2 arrives on shelves October 26th, 2018. Man, that date can’t come fast enough!
