First Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Trailer To Drop In Less Than 24 Hours


It’s what we’ve been waiting for, today Rockstar has confirmed they will be revealing the first Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer, and best of all it’s coming in less than 24 hours. Fans will be able to watch the gameplay trailer direct from the rockstargames.com website, or from their official YouTube, Twitch and Facebook channels.

The first Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer will be available to watch online at 1AM AEST tomorrow, Friday 10th August, and we’re hoping to find out a lot more about the main protagonist Arthur Morgan and how he looks while traversing the wild west.

As the game comes closer to its October release date, Rockstar is kicking in to overdrive with its marketing, and you’re going to struggle to go anywhere without seeing it on buses, trains, billboards, and shopping centres around the world.

First Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Trailer

America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.

After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

Rocket Chainsaw covered the original announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2 which occurred in the middle of the night here in Australia. The game was originally planned to launch in Autumn 2017.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on 26 October, 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. It has also been semi-leaked that the game may appear on Windows PC in 2019, unlike its predecessor. Make sure to check back at Rocket Chainsaw tomorrow morning as we’ll have our insights on the first Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer.
