New Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer pumped and primed for release this Wednesday

If you’re looking forward to the next installment of Rockstar Games’ excellent Western-themed open-world adventure series, Red Dead Redemption 2, there’s a new trailer coming out this week.

The game is expecting its third official video this Wednesday, Rockstar tweeted out today. The new trailer will likely be pored over in great detail by eager gamers everywhere.

Rockstar’s official summary of the second game was included with the second trailer in September 2017. It stated that the game would tell “the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van Der Linde gang as they rob, fight, and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive.” So far, Rockstar has kept mum about what we can expect from this third trailer, but hopefully it'll offer a little more expository information so we can have a better idea of what's going to happen in this entry. 

We know there's something to the "brand new online multiplayer experience" that Rockstar hinted at previously, and there has to be something new and tasty to hook fans in since the game was originally announced. How will it fit into the previous game's narrative or include familiar characters? What kind of DLC will we inevitably be looking at? Will we have another Undead Nightmare? We won't know much more until the trailer lands on May 2 at 10am CT, and there'll still be plenty of unanswered questions after that, too.

Either way, mark your calendars, and then get ready for the full game to drop on Oct. 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
