Red Dead Redemption 2’s publisher Rockstar Games has released another gameplay trailer! In the video captured from actual in-game footage, we see an introduction to the various activities and choices players can make for Arthur and the Van der Linde Gang. From train heists, rival gang fights, to running from the law, and much more. Your choices will be remembered and characters in the game will react to you based on your morality and how you play the game. Burgle houses, rob stagecoaches, and collect laundered money in a world full of things to do. The choice are up to you the player.
Move fluidly between interaction and exploration. Finding scenarios as you progress naturally. The story will unfold as you choose. Arthur can be an honorable outlaw or a downright bastard. Help people and they may help you, or hurt folks, and the consequences may haunt your playthrough. Bounty hunters will be on your trail if you attract too much negative attention.
We also get to see more of the updated Dead Eye system as well. The system will indicate particular weak points on opponents and give you a slow down perspective to time your shots.
Players also hear about some of the aesthetics they can control, such as what Arthur wears, what weapons he carries, what horse he rides, and even what he eats. You can grow a beard and even control your cleanliness. Covered in mud? Take a bath your smelly outlaw! Or just walk around covered in filthy horse shit infested mud. The point of this video seems to be that Rockstar wants you the player to have the choice. Personally I plan to create as dirty a character as I can in Red Dead Online as well, just call me “Pigpen.”
Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One October 26th 2018. Check back for more news and of course our full review!
