Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Reveal Announced!

As secretive as Rockstar can be surrounding their biggest projects, they never fail to disappoint. Rockstar emerged from Twitter announcing the date of their highly-anticipated Red Dead Redemption sequel’s gameplay reveal, and that date is tomorrow! The video will be posted online on 11AM EST. Red Dead Redemption II has a total of three trailers detailing the world and narrative of the game. The third trailer came with preview coverage from IGN First for fans to have a taste of the game. Red Dead Redemption is often considered the best game of the previous generation by many critics and gamers.

Many are hoping its sequel will reach the levels of quality of the original, yet some are skeptical due to Rockstar’s monetization of Grand Theft Auto Online. In response to these concerns, Rockstar assured fans that they will provide the same excellent single player experience as their games have always offered. Red Dead Redemption II will launch on October 26th, 2018 and release on current-gen platforms except for Nintendo Switch and PC.

The release date itself is believed to have caused major third-party releases like Call of Duty Black Ops IIII to move forward on the calendar to two weeks prior to Rockstar’s juggernaut title. Red Dead Redemption II will feature online content that will release exclusively on PlayStation 4 ahead of Xbox One platforms due to a partnership between Rockstar Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment. Fans have also complained about specific preorder bonuses where there is single player content that one can only get by preordering deluxe editions of the game. Despite the confusion and controversy, it is safe to say Rockstar will once again deliver an incredible game that critics and gamers alike will enjoy for a long time.

What do you think about the gameplay reveal? Are you as excited as others or do you have concerns that weaken your anticipation for Rockstar’s latest game? Please let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more content from Sick Critic!
