WATCH: ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Launch Trailer
8 days. We are 8 days away from what people are already calling “game of the year”! Red Dead Redemption 2 comes out on October 26 and we’ve already been showered with some excellent gameplay & mission videos from creator and developer Rockstar Games, but today we got a look at what kind of a story we’ll be in for when the game launches next week.
Can people be turned on by a video game? Because I am! I’ve been reading a LOT about this upcoming ‘old west’ prequel to the original Red Dead that launched over 8 years ago. The way that Rockstar has stepped up their ‘game’ for this next installment is insane! The scope, the graphics, the story and the gameplay all look to be something that is going to push video games into the next generation of story telling and immersion. Things like needing to feed your camp, bathe, shave your own face and run the risk of cutting yourself, updated dead-eye systems and the list, literally, goes on and on! I’m thrilled for this game and I have already set aside the 100 gigs necessary to run this masterpiece! Weed is legal one week and Red Dead Redemption 2 comes out the week after?! COINCIDENCE?! Yeah, probably.
