Rockstar is basically spoiling us with all the new, glossy Red Dead Redemption 2 updates. Yesterday, we got a new story trailer for the game, with a good chunk of cut scenes to help propel the tale along. Now, we have the official box art, which went up on the official Rockstar website, and you can view it below.
The box art went live on the official Rockstar Games site, as well as other retailers. Rockstar’s website has the preorder page up, with the official art as well. It’s a stylistic, bold bit of pop art reminiscent of the typical Spaghetti western style, and it’s pretty creative. There’s a lot of orange and red, as is typical of the Red Dead style, but there’s less black in favor of the orange this time around.
Arthur Morgan gets front billing, of course, with seven silhouettes below him — these are likely Dutch’s gang, or the Van der Linde boys. It’s a pretty gorgeous bit of official artwork, and one that we’re certainly going to start seeing a lot more of in the future.
You can expect to see Red Dead Redemption 2 released on October 26 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There’s no word just yet on whether we’re seeing a PC version at launch, but it looks like that’s probably not going to happen at present.
