Red Dead Redemption 2 Shows Extended Look At Gameplay (VIDEO)
The biggest open world in Rockstar Games’ history awaits in Red Dead Redemption 2 and hype is mounting as the title quickly heads toward launch. Having built up the experience with numerous tidbits and release details, the game has now unveiled a new piece of extended gameplay, further showing off players’ adventures in the endlessly wild West.
Acting as a “Part 2” to a previous video, the title’s open world shooter gameplay is given the spotlight, showing players switch between cinematic cutscenes to intense gun battles on a dime. These quick-drawing activities include various desperado dealings such as bank robberies, train raids, or just telling random bystanders to “stick ’em up.” Of course, players can also easily end up on the other side of the gun, with vengeful rival gangs, pursuant bounty hunters, and gun-slinging lawmen always on the hunt.
Defending players in these instances is a revamped Dead Eye system, which grants the ability to slow down confrontations to pinpoint their preferred placement of punishment. We also see a few of the more innocuous activities of living the outlaw life, such as operating handcars, going fishing, or playing a game of cards. Near the end of the video, we get a look at the game’s new first-person mode as well as the cinematic camera mode that will be available at launch. Check out all the gameplay below.
As evidenced above, Red Dead Redemption 2 features many in the way of activities but will also give players “hundreds of decisions” to make along the way. These variations affect how the game’s world reacts to players, and potentially how the story will eventually play out. Red Dead Redemption 2 releases for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26th.
