Watch: Red Dead Redemption 2 gets second trailer

Red Dead Redemption 2

The gaming world was sent into a tizzy earlier this year, after Rockstar Games revealed the existence (and first trailer) for Red Dead Redemption 2.

The original was a critically acclaimed open-world Western that introduced players to hazardous wildlife (them cougars), frantic gunfights, a slew of minigames and a memorable cast of characters.

Now, the second trailer for the sequel gives us more information to go on, such as a PS4 and Xbox One release in Spring 2018. More importantly, it seems like a prequel to the original, as you run with the van der Linde gang and see a few familiar faces.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the ultra-popular original, but we don’t see a PC release

“The all-new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive,” reads the video description.

It’s also worth noting a few possible gameplay features seen in the trailer, such as an emphasis on robberies/ambushes, an alligator attacking another form of wildlife and bow hunting.
