Red Dead Redemption 2 Will Be A Prequel

Yesterday Rockstar Games released the second trailer to the much anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2. In the official trailer, the game’s story was revealed with a new protagonist.

Rockstar Games described the plot of Red Dead Redemption 2 as “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.” The new protagonist Arthur Morgan will be replacing John Marston who was the protagonist and outlaw of the previous game.

But don’t be too disappointed just yet, because the Van der Linde gang was the name of Dutch’s gang from the original Red Dead Redemption. Dutch also appears in the trailer looking much younger. This is the gang that John Marston would eventually join and leave. Therefore, we may see a younger John Marston return.

In terms of gameplay, the new trailer showed off many different environments such as pine forests, snowy mountains, dangerous swamps, and a series of old western towns. The trailer also shows different activities including robbing trains, hunting, breaking horses, and classic western gunfights and shoot offs.
