Red Dead Redemption 2’s new trailer confirms prequel setting

After nearly a year since its reveal trailer, developer Rockstar Games’ new trailer shows a beautiful and violent wild west.

After a teaser from Rockstar Games’ Twitter last week, Red Dead Redemption 2’s new trailer is finally here.

From the new trailer, we know the game follows a new protagonist, Arthur Morgan. The overarching plot seems familiar, outlaws robbing banks and taking hostages while being chased across the west by lawmen. Another surprise: The game will take place before the events of Red Dead Redemption with Dutch Van der Linde’s gang being central to the plot.

Back in mid October 2016, Rockstar Games released the first trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 showing the game’s beautiful landscapes and hinted at the narrative tone. Red Dead Redemption 2’s new trailer is even more stunning, and compared to the original trailer from last year (below), it seems the team has taken the extra development time to improve the game’s graphics.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One sometime in spring 2018.
