Hello there, ladies and gentlemen, time for some more trailer talk. So let’s just get into it.
In 2010, Rockstar Games released a game called “Red Dead Redemption”, which was more or less a follow-up to their older game, “Red Dead Revolver”. In “Redemption”, you played as John Marston (Rob Wiethoff), a former outlaw who’s being forced by government agents to hunt down his old crew. It was an absolutely incredible game, winning all kinds of awards as well as the hearts of gamers all over the world (yours truly included, though admittedly years later). Then skip forward to October 2016 when we got our first poster and our first trailer for “Red Dead Redemption 2”. The gaming world collectively lost their minds. Sure, it revealed fucking nothing, other than it’s existence. But the prospect of a new “Red Dead” game was enough to make everyone go apeshit, especially since people have wanted a new one since they beat “Redemption”. Well, now we have our first REAL trailer for “Red Dead Redemption 2”, and it is all kinds of western goodness. This time we follow Arthur Morgan (voice actor not yet confirmed), an ruthless outlaw. And we will seemingly follow his journey as a total dickhead. So this reveals a bit about the story, and even has a final reveal in the trailer which more than likely made fans gasp harder than humanly possible because it confirms several things that have been speculated for a while. Sure, it shows no gameplay, but I think I know what it will be like, based on previous Rockstar titles. But yeah… I am so excited! “Red Dead Redemption 2” will be released in Spring of 2018.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for “Red Dead Redemption 2”? And what are your thoughts on the first one (if you played it)? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!
