And will it even have a local co-op component to go along with that rumoured battle royale mode?
Gamers yearning to return to the Wild West world of the Red Dead video game series will soon get their wish. How will a man like Arthur, one who will clearly do anything to protect the people he's adopted as his family, react after their leader, as John Marston put it in the original Red Dead Redemption, "went insane, and suddenly family didn't mean so much anymore"?
The trailer's YouTube description also provides plenty more details as to what players can expect the plot of the game will be.
Sadie Adler: A female member of the aforementioned gang.
"Red Dead 2" is the story of Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang in 1899.
Developed by the creators of Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2 tells the epic tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age. In a recent trailer, fans can see John Marston again, but in a much younger form.
In addition to being the Van der Linde gang's chief enforcer and burliest muscle (seriously, we watched the guy deadlift a 5-point buck like it was nothing), Morgan is also Dutch's right-hand when it comes to leading the crew. "You just feel like you're that character - in this case, it's Arthur". They mess up a robbery in the town of Blackwater, so they're on the run. Based on their personality, they will react to different interactions in different ways.
John Marston: The central character from the first game.
As previously detailed, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the "story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive". Yes, it seems that PC gamers will have to sit this one out, as well.
