The Red Dead Redemption 2 Official Launch Trailer is Here

With just one week to go until launch, it’s safe to say that hype for Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 has hit fever pitch. Today marks not only the start of pre-load for digital purchases of the game (a solid plan considering the ~100GB file size), but also the release of the official launch trailer.

Coming in at exactly one minute in length, it’s a quick tease of a trailer but does a great job of alluding to some of the important character motivations and drama that we can expect from the game’s story. It also continues to look bloody gorgeous.

Peep the trailer below and don’t forget to mark October 26th in your calendars!

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
