Rockstar promised a full gameplay video for Red Dead Redemption 2 and this morning they made good on that promise with something a bit bigger than many had anticipated. In a six minute breakdown of the game you’ll get an idea of the story, characters, and setting for the upcoming open-world action title. More than that though, seeing Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay thoroughly impresses just in how beautiful and expansive the world appears to be.
Playing as Arthur Morgan, gamers will get a look at the wild west as it nears its end. Serving as a prequel to the previous game in the series, this is still very much the old west. You’ll play as an outlaw within this world, and it looks like you’ll have a lot of options for tailoring the gameplay experience. As shown in the video below, you don’t always have to fight your way through conflicts. Instead you can intimidate or negotiate with characters to facilitate different outcomes.
This isn’t the end of Rockstar’s breakdown of Red Dead Redemption 2. Another gameplay video is promised soon, so check back for more info on the famous Dead Eye system of aiming and much more.
