Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Trailer Introduces Protagonist Arthur Morgan & Confirms That It’s a Prequel

Following Rockstar Games’ teasing on Twitter, where they shared a date and time on a Red Dead-esque background, we’ve now been treated to another look at Red Dead Redemption 2.

You might think this would have been obvious, but my cynical self was prepared for anything, including some Red Dead themed outfits for GTA Online… Imagine the uproar!

The trailer introduces us to protagonist Arthur Morgan, an outlaw and member of the Van der Linde gang. Dutch, the gang’s leader, featured in the original game, only he was much older then. This means that, despite the “2” in its name, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel.

Sony has confirmed that the trailer was captured on PS4, also stating that “PlayStation owners will get additional benefits, including first access to select online content.”

Enough talk. Click and watch!
