Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer Showcases Action Ahead of its Release Next Week

If you’re eager for more Red Dead Redemption 2 footage, you’re in luck: Rockstar Games has today released what is probably their final (launch) trailer for the upcoming sequel. It’s just a minute long, but there’s plenty to take in.

Some major takeaways are the interactions between protagonist, Arthur Morgan with fellow gang member, Dutch van der Linde, as well as the thrilling action throughout. Lots of fire and explosions are on display in this one.

During a preview of Red Dead Redemption 2, we got a chance to see some of this action first hand. The gameplay seems to be more refined version of the first game, with callbacks to Grand Theft Auto V.

You’ll also be able to interact with just about anyone in the game, and depending on whether your gun is holstered, they may react to you differently. You can even talk your way out of a potentially troublesome situation with law enforcement.

Rockstar Games has been in the midst of some controversy lately, surrounding a comment made by head writer, Dan Houser, that 100 hour weeks were being worked leading up to the launch of the game. However, after reaching out for clarification, Houser stated that, “We don’t ask or expect anyone to work anything like this.” The back and forth continued when ex-Rockstar employee Job Stauffer chimed in, recounting his experiences of stressful working conditions back during the GTA IV era.

Check out the trailer for yourself below it:

Red Dead Redemption 2 arrives on Oct. 26 for PS4 and Xbox One.
