Red Dead Redemption 2 new trailer sets up a prequel

The second trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 came out last week, giving us a visceral and violent look at the old west being told through the eyes of a vicious outlaw named Arthur Morgan, a member of the Van der Linde gang.

The trailer gives us plenty of action, from Arthur firing multiple different weapons, including the newly added Bow and Arrows, as well as deal with a lot of robbery and taking jobs for the head of the Van der Linde gang, Dutch van der Linde, who was the ringleader that John Marston was forced to hunt down. This confirms the theories that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a prequel and focus on the gang’s early days.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was originally supposed to launch this fall, however to much delight of EA and Ubisoft, the game was delayed. Currently, the game is listed for a Spring 2018 release.
