The footage on display looked fantastic with some stellar character animations, lighting, and scenic vistas. Interestingly, it could be a prequel to Red Dead Redemption. Reason being, the trailer appears to reference Dutch Van der Linde - one of the main villains of that game, who commits suicide towards the end of Red Dead Redemption. In Red Dead Redemption 2, Arthur Morgan is a part of is the Van der Linde gang.and also many more in this game,
Rockstar Games released a new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2. Showing off a host of environments and characters, the trailer also highlighted the game's protagonist, Arthur Morgan. He's an outlaw in the Van der Linde gang.
The Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer also reaffirmed the Red Dead Redemption 2 release date of Spring 2018 for the PS4 and Xbox One. No mention of the PC or Nintendo Switch. Tragic considering that GTA V is rumoured for the Switch and has sold well enough on laptop.
What's interesting is that the footage was captured from a PS4, if a tweet from the official PlayStation account is to be believed. Considering how good it looks, it bodes well for the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions of the game.
Though give how little we've seen of Red Dead Redemption 2 since its initial reveal, more gameplay and its systems would have been welcome. Perhaps we'd see more at PlayStation Experience at the end of the year? Only time will tell.
