Red Dead Redemption 2 gets a new story trailer

Rockstar just released the third trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, along with some story details.

This new trailer finally provides a sense of when the game will take place, and who the characters are that will be pulling off heists and who knows what else in the dusty southwest.

According to Rockstar-

America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.

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.

One of the most exciting reveals is someone who looks an awful lot like the progainist of 2010’s Red Dead Redemption. The first RDR takes place in 1911, so this makes sense from a timeline perspective.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018. No word yet on a PC release, but here’s hoping!
