With only a week remaining until the launch of what is arguably the year’s biggest game, Rockstar Games have released the launch trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2. It’s another more cinematic glimpse at the game, hinting at trouble within Dutch’s gang and the game’s broader story.
From train robberies (and Arthur complaining that “There’s always a goddamned train!” to upper class double crosses (“I don’t want to kill all these fools, Dutch. Just you.”), the trailer paints a picture of the urgency of the era. The Old West is ending, there are fewer and fewer places for people Arthur to go and their desperation is mounting.
Red Dead Redemption 2 launches October 26, 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
