Red Dead Redemption 2’s Gameplay Is Intoxicating

Red Dead Redemption 2’s Gameplay Is Intoxicating

At long last, after two years since its initial announcement, Red Dead Redemption 2 has received its first public gameplay footage courtesy of Rockstar.

For now, let's just agree that Red Dead Redemption 2 is inarguably stunning, and focus on the real intention of today's new trailer: to give us an idea how Red Dead Redemption 2 will actually play. Before Thursday's new reveal, fans had to be content with scrutinizing a trailer from May 2, which has been streamed over 25 million times. Cowboys, weapons, in-game mechanics, location; you know what, just watch the trailer for yourself. Rockstar is making sure that the world and its inhabitants can be interacted with in ways aside from shoot-outs, and one large part of that is an expanded conversation system. These kinds of actions include paying someone compliment as you pass them or starting a fight in a bar.

Following the vast success of Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar first announced a sequel to the critically-acclaimed title in October of 2016. You'll continue to build out the base as the game goes on from there and improve it beyond its initial iteration. Poker's back, Dead Eye's back, Rockstar's razor-sharp mo-cap performances have never looked better.




Red Dead Redemption 2 is due on consoles on October 26, 2018.

On the gameplay front, Red Dead Redemption 2 appears to have a refreshingly stripped down HUD, with only a small mini-map and the occasional dialogue options on screen.
