It’s been a very long time coming, but now we finally have our very first look at the gameplay of Red Dead Redemption 2.
The gameplay trailer, seen below, is fantastic. It showcases some of the activities and missions players will be able to participate in the game, and also provides some deeper context about the game’s story.
We’ve previously learned that Red Dead Redemption 2 will feature a brand new protagonist, Arthur Morgan, who is a member of the Dutch van der Linde gang. Fans of the original title might recognize that name, because members of this exact same gang were some of the primary antagonists of the first game.
We’ve also learned that the player’s horse will play a much greater role this time around, specifically that you can bond with it, and that it also carries some of your larger items such as rifles and bows.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a sequel to 2010’s Red Dead Redemption and will be the third entry in the Red Dead franchise.
Thankfully, we also don’t have to wait a long time to play the game, because Red Dead Redemption 2 is set for release on the 26th of October, 2018 for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. No release for the PC has been announced as of yet.
