Rockstar Games has released a Launch Trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2. The new trailer isn’t very long, lasting only a minute, but it has provided us with some new details on the game’s story and where it will be taking our protagonist, Arthur Morgan, along with the rest of the Van der Linde gang.
Rockstar had this to say, “America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.”
Rockstar also gave some information about pre-order bonuses and different editions of the game available for purchase, as well as when fans will be able to pre-load Red Dead Redemption 2.
They said, “Pre-order now to get the War Horse and Outlaw Survival Kit, or select the Special Edition or Ultimate Edition to receive additional bonuses and exclusive content.”
Rockstar has also stated that, “Pre-loading for digital pre-orders on both the PlayStation Store or Xbox Store will be unlocked worldwide for all available territories. All digital pre-orders also receive bonus GTA$ for GTA Online.”
It’s nice to hear they are allowing players to get their download underway as soon as possible to ensure there are no issues for when midnight launch arrives on October 25. They are also throwing in a bonus for digital pre-orders which will give players money for their characters in GTA Online. Not a bad idea to help hold fans over until Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26, for PS4 and Xbox One.
Be sure to let us know what your thoughts are on the new Launch Trailer and whether or not you are excited for Red Dead Redemption 2.
