Gamers have been looking forward to Red Dead Redemption 2 for a long time now. Apart from the story and the moral dilemma players will face as Arthur Morgan, Rockstar Games has crafted an incredibly vibrant world that looks quite alive.and I really want to explore it. Rockstar Games is setting the bar for video game visuals with this release, and one of the first things that jumps out is that they managed to finally nail something video games have struggled with since their inception - facial animations. Red Dead Redemption 2's release date has been confirmed as October 26, and it is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

It wasn't the first video we've seen for the forthcoming prequel and it probably won't be the last, but previous cinematics have been about building hype and painting pictures, whereas this clip was specifically made to show off gameplay.

If Red Dead Redemption 2 performs well on console like it should, it will be hard for Rockstar to ignore the success it could have on PC.

Rockstar teased GTA 5 in a similar fashion; releasing several cinematic trailers initially before dropping gameplay footage closer to launch.
