Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Trailer Just Dropped And It Looks Incredible red dead redemption featuredRockstar

Rockstar Games have finally released the first gameplay trailer for the hotly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2.

Though the initial, tantalising trailer for the game dropped earlier this year, fans have been craving shots of actual gameplay ever since the announcement of the game.

Up until now, Rockstar have only teased fans with a few cinematic trailers, which have focussed on setting up the story of the game, namely the tales of Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang.

However, the games company confirmed fans will get to see actual gameplay in a tweet yesterday, August 8, simply giving the time and date for the release of the official gameplay trailer.

And here it is:

In the past, the game’s company has teased that Red Dead Redemption 2 will offer ‘incredible emotional depth’, ‘great story elements’ and ‘great gameplay elements’.

They have also suggested the sequel will have a bigger focus on multiplayer, though it’s not yet clear how that will be incorporated in the game.

Rockstar announced Red Dead Redemption‘s sequel back in February this year, again via Twitter, with a post simply saying ‘Red Dead Redemption 2 is Coming October 26th 2018’.

The sequel has been long overdue since the debut of 2010’s seminal masterpiece Red Dead Redemption on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

A press release at the time said:

We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26th 2018. We apologise to everyone disappointed by this delay. While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope that when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it. In the meantime, please check out these screenshots from the game. We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks.

The release and subsequent success of Red Dead Redemption in 2010 was a pivotal moment for Rockstar, as it proved once and for all they didn’t need to rely on the huge achievement of Grand Theft Auto to thrive as a company.

Talking about the new game, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take Two Interactive, told Game Rant last year:

We support all of our releases very significantly. We’re incredibly proud of our marketing teams throughout the company and our support is quite significant for all of our releases…I think you should expect to see, with regard to all of our releases, very significant marketing support.

I don’t think there is any competitive dynamic with any of our upcoming releases, apart from the fact that our success is driven by quality. So I think the success of [Red Dead Redemption 2], which is highly anticipated, will be driven by its quality, and I think that the ongoing success of Grand Theft Auto Online is driven by its extraordinary quality.

Only a couple months to wait for the real thing now!

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26.

Far Cry New Dawn: Plot, Release Date, And Everything Else We Know

Far Cry New Dawn is indeed the post apocalyptic follow up to Far Cry 5 we all assumed it was, set 17 years after Hope Valley was engulfed in nuclear fire during the climax of the last instalment. 

New Dawn will tell the story of what it’s like to to fight, rebuild, and survive in a world that is recovering from the fact that it pretty much destroyed itself.

It might sound like a Fallout game on paper, but it certainly doesn’t look like one. I’d imagine Ubisoft has consciously embraced a much more vibrant colour palette so as not to draw too many comparisons with Bethesda’s own nuke-happy franchise.

The game is still set in Far Cry 5’s fictional Hope County, but it’s a world that’s been destroyed and then reclaimed by nature once more. I’m personally all for a post apocalyptic game that isn’t just muddy browns and sickly greens.

It’s the players job to attempt to restore some kind of order to Hope County. A group of raiders known as Highwaymen roam the wasteland doing whatever they like, so as in Far Cry 5, it’ll be up to us to build up a resistance and fight back.

There’ll be new friends to recruit, and even a couple of new animal chums to get acquainted with on the way.

Judging by the end of the trailer, it looks like Far Cry 5’s terrifying antagonist Father Joseph Seed will be returning, too. Whether as friend or foe is unclear, but he certainly sounds like he regrets kicking off a nuclear winter – which I’m sure we all would, to be fair.

Moment to moment gameplay looks to be exactly what you’d expect from a Far Cry game – run around and shoot people in gloriously violent set pieces – but it does look like there are gonna be plenty of cool Mad Max style twists on weapons, vehicles, and the like.

I, for example, am a big fan of the CO2-powered crossbows that shoot saw blades, and I look forward to seeing how much damage they can do. Probably a lot.

Far Cry New Dawn hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 15, 2019. Just to rip this particular band aid off now by the way, Boomer is almost definitely dead. Sorry.

CS:GO Goes Free To Play, New Battle Royale Mode Added

Valve has announced that its popular competitive shooter CS:GO has gone free to play. They’ve even introduced a brand new battle royale mode called Danger Zone. Clearly, someone’s been peeking at Fortnite.

Danger Zone is described as a “a fast-paced battle royale game mode built on CS:GO’s tactical gameplay where players use their wits, skill, and resources to fight to the finish”, which sounds really interesting to be honest.

The mode doesn’t hold quite as many players as Fortnite, PUBG, or Blackout though. Danger Zone will only host 16 players in singles, or 18 players in duos or triples.

The good news is that it sounds like Valve want to make this battle royale a much snappier alternative than its brethren, with matches that shouldn’t ever really last more than ten minutes.

Meanwhile, weapons will behave exactly the same as they would in a standard game of CS:GOwith the usual damage outputs. There are some battle royale influenced changes to the formula, of course.

Valve

Each player publicly claims a landing zone before rappelling into the match, armed with just a knife. The map is divided into hexagonal zones, which is randomly attacked by airstrikes for good measure.

You can track other players via an upgradeable special tablet device, and weapons will be delivered to you via airdrop. You have to purchase these weapons using cash which can be picked up around the map – but be aware that ammo is scarce.

There’s only one map at the moment – called Blacksite – and while it’s pretty small by standard battle royale measurements, it’s big compared to most CS:GO maps.

Valve

Danger Zone is available, and absolutely free to try now. If you’ve never played Counter Strike before, now could be the perfect time to dive on it and learn the hard way that there will be people much, much better at it than you.

Obsidian’s New Game Looks Like Fallout: New Vegas In Space

Revealed at The Game Awards, Obsidian’s new game is a gorgeous looking single player RPG called The Outer Worlds. It’s basically Fallout:New Vegas in space, and that’s fine with me.

The studio behind classic RPG hits like Knights of the Old Republic, and New Vegas have clearly been cooking up this game for a while, as it’s looking gorgeous.

The two minute trailer they shared during the awards show was a highlight for gamers everywhere, especially since it represents the kind of Falloutesque single player experience fans are hungry for.

Despite the fact that Microsoft purchased Obsidian earlier in the year, The Outer Worlds will be coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4, and reportedly has a budget somewhere between the indie Pillars of Eternity and the AAA New Vegas.

The game is being published by Private Division, which is a new label started by Take-Two. As I’m sure you know, Take-Two also owns 2K and Rockstar, so this is another solid string to their bow.

I’m sorry to continue to draw comparisons with New Vegas, but The Outer Worlds doesn’t just look similar to Obsidian’s Fallout game, it also seems pretty close in tone, with a knowing sense of humour as corporations like Spacer’s Choice and Auntie Cleo’s have taken over entire planets.

Obsidian

The Outer Worlds doesn’t have a solid release date beyond “2019”, and I’d probably even expect that to change at some point to be honest. This looks like one game worth waiting for though.
