Take a look at Red Dead Redemption 2's box art

The horses in RDR2 will be more important than in previous games. Rockstar Games is slowly building up the hype, by spoon-feeding the hungry public and releasing trailer by trailer. Players caught glimpses of Javier Escuela and Bill Williamson in the trailer as well, and a woman who looks somewhat like Abigail, but redesigned.

Release Red Dead Redemption 2 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be held on October 26. The iconic scars on the gunslinger's face when he was sent after his former fellow gang members could still be seen as freshly made.

The trailer has revealed some details about the location and setting of the game.

If an animal begins to decay, it will impact the value of the animal both in terms of how valuable it is to the camp, and how much players will be able to sell it for at butcher shops.

The overarching theme of the trailer, and presumably the game itself, is that the era of the Wild West is slowly coming to an end. In fact, his crimes with this notorious gang are what sets the events of the original game in motion. And if Red Dead Redemption 2 Online is half as popular as GTA Online, then PUBG and Fortnite could be in big trouble. This loyalty makes Arthur one of the few people Dutch really trusts - and I'm interested to see how these bonds will be tested.

Arthur Morgan, Dutch's right-hand man, is the protagonist of RDR2. The last of the outlaw gangs are getting weeded out by the law.

There is also a vast amount of detail and realism in the game. "You just feel like you're that character - in this case, it's Arthur".

Rockstar has also put a great deal of effort into the NPC AI. They mess up a robbery in the town of Blackwater, so they're on the run. So much as walking around with pistol in hand will make some be afraid of you, some might ask you to mind your manners and stash the gun, while others pull theirs and give you a very stern warning.

Sounds like Morgan will be making numerous same tough choices Marston faces years later. As we saw in our demo, Rockstar is focusing heavily on how we as players can interact with the world, and this includes spending time living and working with the other members of the gang, along with the relationships we forge therin.

In case you need a refresher, Marston was the protagonist of the first game, which takes place in 1911 in the final days of the Old West.
