Red Dead Redemption is one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time and on October 28th it is getting a sequel.
The original Red Dead Redemption was Rockstar Game’s take on the old west. Rockstar took the Grand Theft Auto game play model and shipped it back to an old west setting. The result was one of the greatest games in recent memory. The game featured an incredible story, intense game play, and RPG elements that put actual RPGs to shame. The hunting and skinning concept first seen in Red Dead Redemption has been copied for years, cropping up in games like Far Cry and others. Red Dead Redemption 2 certainly has big shoes to feel.
In typical Rockstar fashion, despite the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 still being months away, Rockstar has released its third trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2. Fans are still waiting to get a glimpse of some actual game play footage, but there is no lack of cinematic trailers.
From the information released via these cinematic trailers, it is a safe bet to say that Red Dead Redemption 2 doesn’t take place in the mid-west, at least not all of it. In one of the previous trailers, an alligator can be seen ripping a man to pieces, and in this newest preview a building called the Saints Hotel can be seen. These two pieces of information hint at a Louisiana setting. An official announcement has yet to be made about the setting of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the original game, telling the story of the end of the old west as it is remember, displaying a shift to a more modern culture. The game will be in stores on October 28th.
The third official trailer from Rockstar can be viewed, along with the other trailers, on their official website.
