Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay video coming August 9

Red Dead Redemption 2 is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26. A narrator goes over everything throughout the video, explaining important information about what people are seeing. We wouldn't mind another, though. There are natural environments, like mountains and dense forests, as well as more modern cities. It does seem a bit odd the original Red Dead Redemption never did come to PC. That segment of the trailer ends by saying it's up to you decide just how honorable Arthur Morgan is. You'll have the option to interact with non-playable characters in the world, both in casual and severe ways.

It wasn't the first video we've seen for the forthcoming prequel and it probably won't be the last, but previous cinematics have been about building hype and painting pictures, whereas this clip was specifically made to show off gameplay. You can start fights or squash them, save people or let them perish. When forced to leave an area, the gang sets up a camp. What's interesting is the morality system that the game appears to be shooting for, as you're in control of how honourable Arthur can be.

The video also notes the importance of Morgan's bond with his horse.

Rescuers in Lombok were said to be still pulling people out alive from the rubble, two days after the natural disaster . The global charity Oxfam said drinking water was scarce because of a recent spell of extremely dry weather in Lombok.

My one and only reaction to this debut gameplay video is, "Shut up and take my money". Apart from its grim and gritty story and setting, Red Dead Redemption 2 should stand as a superlative technical showcase for the current console generation; the game was, after all, built from the ground up for consoles.

Well, good news, cowpokes - Rockstar have finally opened up the vault and released some honest-to-goodness Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay footage, and, unsurprisingly, it's impressive stuff.
