Rockstar announces new Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay video

Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay video coming August 9

Captured entirely from in-game footage on the PlayStation®4 Pro, watch this introduction to Red Dead Redemption 2's gameplay in 4K.

After announcing the game in 2016, the studio has released several trailers for Red Dead Redemption 2, all of which have focused on setting the scene to the story of Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang.

Though previously Rockstar Games has shown off cinematic trailers, this is the first time any gameplay has been shared. All other marks and trademarks are properties of their respective owners.

This Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer immediately throws us into the action, quite literally starting off with a bang.

The Red Dead Redemption 2 Official Gameplay Video will go live today, Thursday 9, at 11AM ET, 8AM PT, 4PM BST.

We will be producing a breakdown article with a ton of things you might have missed or glanced over in this gameplay video, so make sure to stay tuned for that.

So far, we know that the game is built in the RAGE engine which uses similar techniques to render characters that GTAV used - a notable step up from the first Red Dead Redemption game.

In just a couple of months, one of the most highly anticipated games of the year will drop after close to a decade of development. This one showcases some proper in-game footage, featuring protagonist and Van der Linde gang outlaw Arthur Morgan.

Digital Foundry reports that the engine is using more sophisticated techniques to render in-game characters and effects, meaning that players, in the end, are going to get a better overall gameplay experience.
