You’ve all been expecting it and it has finally been confirmed by Rockstar Games: Red Dead Redemption 2 is happening and is set to release Autumn next year!
The Rockstar Games website finally revealed the finishing touches to an image that had been circulating around the internet which had the Red Dead colours along with a group of Western-like individuals.
It looks like we are in store for a trailer this Thursday which in UK time will arrive around 3pm.
Rockstar Games posted on their facebook page saying the game would be:
“An epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland, the game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.“
The company will be taking everything they have learned in their past tiles such as the Grand Theft Auto series to give their players the best possible gaming experince!
The original game took place in 1911 and followed outlaw John Martson whose wife and son were taken by government in ransom for his previous gunslinging antics. Martson then sets out to bring down his three former gang members as means of getting his family back. The game was a third-person persepctive which took place in Western-style America and Mexico featuring a multitude of weaponry from the time ranging from pistols to cannons. It had horse riding where horses were tamed and was an open world experience which let the player go at their own pace.
The actions performed by you as Martson gave consequences to both ends of the spectrum: be bad and people are scared of you along with whole towns closing up. However, being bad got you better trade deals with other wrongdooers. You could hijack trains and follow a ‘Grand Theft Auto Wanted’ system. The game was praised for its voice acting and was the second ‘Red’ title following ‘Red Dead Revolver’ and was followed by the ‘Undead Nightmare DLC’. Here Martson liberates towns which are overrun with the undead.
Red Dead Redemption has said to be one of the greatest video games of all time and I cannot wait to see what is in store Thursday!
