Red Dead Redemption 2's latest trailer focuses on gunplay and new 'Dead Eye' system

Today, Rockstar Games dropped a new video showcasing Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay. Red Dead Redemption 2 looks gorgeous running on consoles. The world feels alive as if every character has a purpose. There seems to be a greater push on exploration, and this presents new opportunities for survival.

The trailer focuses on combat more than anything else. According to the developer, the footage outlines a wide range of nefarious activities Arthur and the Van der Linde Gang can get involved in, including robbing trains, encountering rival gangs, and evading cunning lawmen. There's also an in-depth look at the new "Dead Eye" system.

After a robbery goes wrong in the town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal, and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals or loyalty to the gang who raised him.

Red Dead Redemption 2 should launch on October 26, 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems. It's unclear what the resolution or frame rate will be on Xbox One X, but we do know that the game is getting enhanced for the new console.
