Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Trailer

With every passing month I get more and more excited for the games that are coming out this year. One of the games at the top of my list, and lets face it most gamer’s lists, is of course Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2. This is definitely one of the most anticipated games of the last few years let alone this year. We’ve gotten plenty of glimpses of the game’s cinematics but we have really been wanting to see is actual gameplay footage. Well last week Rockstar finally came through for us and delivered a 6 minute long trailer featuring some amazing looking gameplay footage. Already Red Dead Redemption 2 is looking like it is going to be an instant classic much like it’s predecessor.

America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.


There is so much awesome new content that is shown in this 6 minute trailer that it’s hard to know where to begin. Right off the bat it is clear that Red Dead Redemption 2’s open world is unlike anything we’ve experienced before. There are a variety of environments for players to explore that are not only rich with life but also danger. Now you can interact with npcs and the environments in ways that we could have only wished for in the previous game. Not only that, but the choices that the player makes in the game has an affect on what type of person Arthur Morgan will become. There is honestly so much to take from this trailer that you really just have to watch it for yourself.

Again, I can’t wait for this game to come out especially being such a huge fan of Red Dead Redemption and even Red Dead Revolver…Now that’s takin it back. Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to release October 26, 2018. So check out the awesome 6 minute gameplay trailer and as always, let us know what you think of it Nerd Nation.
