Here it is, as promised the new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer has been released overnight and shows some stunning new landscapes, interactions, and explains how the West was won – hinting at settings and story-lines for the game. Rockstar Games has also taken this moment to reveal the official Red Dead Redemption 2 cover art, which you can check out on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at the end of the article.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is just five months away now, and we are still yet to see any actual gameplay footage. Rest assured though that we will most likely have our cravings satisfied at E3 2018 which takes place next month in Los Angeles, California.

So without any further delay, here is the official brand new Red Dead Redemption 2 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.

Take a look at the official Red Dead Redemption 2 cover art below:

Red Dead Redemption 2 was originally announce in October 2016 with an ambitious August 2017 release date, however the game was quickly delayed more than a year to accomodate for a more polished launch, as well as an expected overhaul of the franchise’s online experience, bringing it in line with Grand Theft Auto Online, and possibly even a battle royale mode.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26, 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. Find out more about the most anticipated game of 2018 at the official Red Dead Redemption 2 website here.
