Rockstar Games have rolled out their first gameplay trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, and gosh it sure looks purdy.
This time, rather than playing the somewhat reluctant hero, Red Dead Redemption 2 will put you in the boots of an outlaw, closer to their other franchise, Grand Theft Auto.
But it’s not all guns and violence, sweet talking is an option and you can choose your own moral code to abide by.
There’s more than one kind of horse, the horse can get dirty and be groomed, and unruly mounts can be tamed over time.
And yes, the Dead Eye system is back. Temporarily slow time and pick out targets to dispatch at a more leisurely pace, or just knock off a bunch of bad hombres in the blink of an eye.
Sadly, this is still only coming to Playstation 4 and Xbox One at this stage, so if you’re a PC-only gamer go (politely) nudge Rockstar about that.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is due for release October 26, 2018.
