The 'Red Dead Redemption 2' launch trailer is here
As the new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer notes, there's "always one more train".
Right now that train is the hype train, and Red Dead fans have piled aboard after hearing the last game's protagonist John Marston announce himself with three words: "What about loyalty?"
That's a little aside within the trailer though. Arthur Morgan, the protagonist of Red Dead 2, chats to Dutch, the leader of his gang, about one last big score. It looks like that means nicking gold from a moving train, and it also looks like that one last job is going to go the way of all one last jobs - there are flaming carriages careering off the rails, screaming, death and so on.
We're also introduced to a bowler-hatted antagonist who's apparently after Dutch, plus there's an extremely large bear rearing up out of the darkness and moreishly pulpy dialogue like, "Nothin' means more to me than this gang... I would kill for it, I would happily die for it".
And that's about it. It feels like we're getting a very deliberately light silhouette sketch of the shape of the game because it's likely to be up to you as to how much you bother with the gang and their travails in this enormous sandbox world with a cast of thousands, vast landscapes to explore and real-time beard growth.
