'Red Dead Redemption 2' Gameplay Trailer Is Most Ambitious Yet

02 October 2018

Announced yesterday by Rockstar Games, the studio released a new gameplay video into Red Dead Redemption 2 that gives a bit more of a deepdive into the game's complex open-world and range of side activities. Prior to this, we'd received a total of just 10 minutes of footage in 2 years.

Yesterday, Rockstar Games announced that a new gameplay trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 would drop this morning, and the world-renowned studio didn't disappoint.

The yellow hand in the screenshot above doesn't actually appear in the trailer at the top, so you won't have the helpful indicator showing you where to look, but the body parts painted red are enough of a visual to guide your aim. And the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 will react accordingly.

For example, it's been reported that Red Dead 2's non-playable characters (NPCs) have the ability to hunt you down - without warning throughout the entire game - if you kill their family members.

'I don't think it's nice you laughing'. We then see the range of actions you can opt to partake in as Arthur Morgan. Whether you're robbing a train or holding up stagecoaches, there certainly seems to be the potential to make a lot of cash if you're willing to break the law. The video also goes into more detail on the series' trademark dead eye system, allowing Arthur to pick his shots in slow motion. This latest gameplay video only hammered that point further, providing players with a look at the game's ecosystem, gameplay and environment. Expect Rockstar to take home a massive haul of trophies during awards season with this one (and a Brink's truck full of money). Red Dead Redemption 2 is out on PS4 and Xbox One on October 26.
