The Red Dead Redemption 2 trailers have been on the more abstract side since Rockstar’s PR machine started ramping up. While this one gives us the most clues yet as to the tone and themes of the game, they still don’t give much of an explanation as to what our story will be. Fortunately, the press releases provide much more for us to go on.
Apparently, RDR2 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.” Arthur Morgan is the game’s new protagonist, their enforcer who they send to retrieve money from difficult business partners. As expected, he will be part of Dutch’s gang, a group who you may remember from the first game, was John Marston lot before he split to start a family. Marston, by the way, features in the trailer and will definitely feature in the game as an NPC.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled for an October 26 release date.
