Watch The Official Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Trailer

It’s here, as promised, Rockstar has officially unveiled the first official Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer.

In the new Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer which runs for a crazy six minutes, we see many different environments from dry deserts to dark forests as well as towns on the verge of modern civilisation. We see Arthur Morgan getting in to fights, playing poker, riding his horse and much more. The Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer is actually a lot more than what we expected, so you should probably just check it out yourself!

Watch the first official Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer below, captured entirely in in-game 4K footage:


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.

Rockstar Games has also revealed there will be more Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailers coming soon, with the next video focusing on missions, activities, enemy gangs, robberies, other things to do and much more including the evolution of sharpshooting using the Dead-Eye system, so make sure to check back at Rocket Chainsaw as we’ll have all the latest news on Red Dead Redemption 2.
