Rockstar Games have just dropped the newest, biggest trailer for their upcoming mega-game, Red Dead Redemption II, and it’s already burning uncanny valleys into my eyes.
The trailer introduces us to new protagonist (as much as one can be in a Rockstar game) Arthur Morgan, member of the Van Der Linde, as he and a younger Dutch Van Der Linde run around the American West robbing and shooting and hosting campfires.
Rumors of the game being a prequel seem to be true, as Dutch is much older in the game’s predecessor — could John Marston be far behind?
The visuals are stunning, showcasing what the current gen (and 4k half gen) have to offer, right down to a moment or two where we wonder “is this a photograph of a landscape or not?”
The game launches in Spring 2018, so hold on to your cowboy boots.
