To fully realize its vision for Red Dead Redemption 2 and create its ambitious, living open-world experience, Rockstar Games has brought together all its development teams and studios to function as a single core group working constantly for the best part of a decade. Rockstar Games unveiled trailer #3 this week, which dives into the story of the Van der Linde gang.
Rockstar Games released the third official trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, confirming that the highly anticipated game is a prequel to Red Dead Redemption.
The trailer features new protagonist Arthur Morgan. Set in what is considered to be a time of lawlessness, America in 1899 was seeing the end of the Wild West era as lawmen are wrapping up what is left of the last remaining outlaw gangs.

Unlike the original Red Dead which was pretty sparse, there's quite a bit happening in RDR 2.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was originally teased past year with a Fall 2017 release date, then delayed to Spring 2018 before given a (hopefully) firm release date in October. The AI is one of the aspects that has received proper attention from Rockstar Games. Their games are few and far between but usually dominate the industry for years. Larger animals will need to be transported back to camp on horseback, and players will want to deliver the kill as quickly as possible, as dead animals will decay over time. Some of these mechanics - like decaying animal corpses, for instance - have rarely been showcased in gaming before, and it will be interesting to see how it works in action. John Marston and Dutch Van Der Linde will also be among the returning characters. It was also never ported to modern consoles nor PC. So, to get an October 26 release date is huge.
