First Official Gameplay Trailer For Red Dead Redemption 2 Has Dropped

Share

The latest video will be debuting on Thursday, August 9th at 11 AM ET / 8 AM PT. We've seen multiple cinematic trailers, but today Rockstar gave us our very first look at how the game will play. How much more do you think we'll see before the game releases October 26, 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? And if all of the previous trailers are any indicator, it will be a stunningly lovely yet brutal ride.

The video will be available on YouTube and Rockstar Games' official website.

Tomorrow's gameplay reveal should highlight quite a few things including the game's seamless open world, its believable, living NPCs, gunplay and action sequences, and possibly a taste of the storyline.

As well as just gawking at the graphics the trailer has plenty of new info and focuses on the giant open world environment and how you can interact with other people. You'll continue to build out the base as the game goes on from there and improve it beyond its initial iteration.

The player controls Arthur Morgan, an outlaw and a member of the Van der Linde gang, from a third-person (and potentially first-person) perspective.

On the gameplay front, Red Dead Redemption 2 appears to have a refreshingly stripped down HUD, with only a small mini-map and the occasional dialogue options on screen. Ultimately though, the most interesting aspect of RDR2 might be it's RPG-like character interactions and camps, where you eat, sleep, socialize and play games.
