You'll be able to find out a ton more about Red Dead Redemption 2 ahead of the game's release in the spring of next year a lot sooner than you may have thought. In fact, Rockstar Games recently announced exactly when you'll be able to find out more about the open-world Western via a quick message to the gaming community.
The message was posted up over on the official Rockstar Games Twitter account. There, the developers informed the community that on Thursday, September 28th at 11:00am Eastern Standard Time, Rockstar will drop the first big revelation for the game following on the teaser trailer that was released previously for the title.
Of course, Rockstar did not reveal what the new information would be or what gamers could expect. But the tweet thread has plenty of people pointing out that they expect to hear something or another about the game's online modes, especially since that's pretty much the big thing for GTA V at the moment. In fact, the game never received any major single-player DLC unlike GTA IV, which had a series of expansion packs released that extended the story, multiplayer, and content with all new characters and missions.
Rockstar and Take-Two were even able to re-release GTA IV multiple times thanks to the new story missions. This eventually resulted in GTA IV: Episodes From Liberty City, becoming a new SKU that allowed the studios to clean up on additional sales of the open-world action title.
As for Red Dead Redemption 2, we really don't know much about the game at all. Some outlets have ventured to take liberties in assuming what the story is like, but all we've gathered from the teaser trailer is that it's set in the wild west and that a lot of the core features we've come to expect from the RAGE.
During the teaser we did get to see that animal hunting is still present, and that the game's world is still absolutely mammoth, including valleys, deserts, forests, and mountain ranges to explore. Caravans will be present along with a full locomotive train. Many assume the train will play an integral part in both single and multiplayer given that it opens up the possibility for train robberies.
We still have no idea who you actually play in this version of Red Dead Redemption. It's also a big indicator that the game is called Red Dead Redemption 2 and not Red Dead (insert word here). The first game was called Red Dead Revolver, and it had a completely different story from what the sequel was about. In this case, since it's a numerical sequel to the original, it could be a continuation of what happened at the end of Red Dead Redemption.
Of course, it's all speculation for now until September 28th rolls around and Rockstar finally reveals more about the game and what we can expect from the open-world westerner.
