ROCKSTAR DROPS SECOND AWESOME RED DEAD 2 TRAILER
The second trailer is about 50 percent longer than the first one, which Rockstar released more than 11 months ago. Rockstar also sent out a one-line story synopsis confirming that the game is a prequel to the original Red Dead Redemption, saying that it is “the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van Der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive.”
Red Dead Redemption 2 will focus on the outlaw gang led by Dutch Van der Linde. If that name sounds familiar to you, you’ve probably played Red Dead Redemption. Van der Linde used to be the ringleader of the band of outlaws known as Dutch’s Gang, and John Marston — the game’s protagonist — was once a member of that gang. In Red Dead Redemption, which takes place after the group has disbanded, federal agents take Marston’s wife and son hostage. They agree to release Marston’s family only if he hunts down his former cohorts one by one: Bill Williamson, Javier Escuella and Dutch himself.
The second trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 introduces us to Arthur Morgan, an outlaw who rides with Dutch’s Gang.
We’ll have to wait until spring 2018, when the game is scheduled to launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
