Here’s Red Dead Redemption 2’s launch trailer

1 min read


Sometimes the anticipation for something is better than the actual thing. This happens most often when I order cheesecake at a restaurant, hoping for something that’s slightly sweet and a little tarts – only to inevitably end up with a mouth full of horribly textured guff that tastes like solidified condensed milk on a mound of crushed Tennis biscuits.

While the anticipation is exceedingly high, I don’t expect that to be the case with Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2. Out next week Friday, the game is likely to be one of the biggest games of this, and the next few years. While I don’t think it’ll quite reach GTA V-level sales, it’s going to do phenomenally well. Despite the two on the end, it’s actually set before the first game, telling the story of Arthur Morgan and his time in the Van der Linde gang.

“America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. 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.”

Enough waffling…you probably really only care about the launch trailer…which you can watch below.

    I wish I knew when the PC version was releasing. I’m dying to play the game, but I would much rather prefer the PC version over the PS4 version!!!

      Rockstar have not confirmed a PC version. They never released RDR on PC, so they may never do so.

        I know PC gamers never got RDR as I got it for my PS3. But considering GTAV for PC came out months after the console versions, there is always hope that they will release a PC version, and quite frankly, if they didn’t, they would be idiots. They are going to make a killing with the console versions, and they can make a bigger killing with the PC version, where the modding community is most active, and it is this community that keeps GTAV going to this day. So yeah, I’m hoping we see a PC version!
