As if we weren’t excited enough for Rockstar Games’ sequel to the massive successful Red Dead Redemption, they go and give us a sweet sweet taste of the goods. Yesterday the official gameplay trailer dropped and I, for one, had to awkwardly explain my gaming boner to the other customers at Target.
Set in the late 1880’s the game follows Arthur Morgan, a senior member of the Dutch Van der Linde that was featured in Red Dead 1. Rather than give you a synopsis of exactly what the video will show you, I’ll just shut up and let you watch the official trailer. Read Dead Redemption 2 releases October 26 everywhere.
Rockstar Games has come out with guns a blazing’! This title is a personal one for me. My friends and other gamers had to endure me gushing over Red Dead Redemption and how it was the most amazing game I had ever played. From the expansive, open world exploration and side jobs, to the characters that seemed to walk out of your console larger than life. As a kid who has grown up in the Mojave Desert, the rendering of sunrises of the land and the way monsoonal rains would sweep was breathtaking. I honestly sat on a ridge and watched the sunrise and I swear I could almost smell that familiar air. Rockstar Games has done it again and now we get a glimpse into the Red Dead world again. Leave it to Rockstar to have me wanting to skip this fall and just get to the next one so that I can travel back to the time of gunslingers and river boat gamblers. Rockstar has partnered with Sony to give players early content and, much like Skyrim, a release of the classic Red Dead on the Playstation Network. All of the footage shown is from actual in-game play on the Playstation 4 engine. I simply cannot wait.
