Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Trailer
 

The YouTube blurb has describes the story of Red Dead Redemption 2 thusly:
Quote:

[T]he 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.
Assuming you're playing as Morgan, your character seems a lot more Black Hat than in the previous game. It also looks amazing, but that's not a surprise. I wonder which of the characters are androids?

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PS4 & XB1 in the spring.

I was super late to the RDR party, but when I spent some quality time with it, I absolutely adored it.

Keen to get my hands on RDR2.

Will we get a PC version this time?

Rockstar DID Release GTAV on PC, so I bet chances are good. Just probably there'll be a delay.

Probably. Maybe.

I 100% expect a one year+ timed delay similar to what they did with GTA V. At this point they know people will double dip anyways, so why not sell people the same game twice?

Never was a big fan of the GTA games generally, but I loved RDR. Very excited for the sequel.

As an aside, graphical fidelity in videogames is reaching that uncanny valley. It's not just ME: Andromeda, with its glitchy presentation and stiff animations; rather, many games that strive for realism manage to hit the mark and miss it at the same time. This RDR2 trailer is a good example of this. It looked gorgeous for most of its duration, but some of the facial animations were jarring to behold. They looked correct, as it were, but something about them doesn't settle; it is almost like looking at a wax sculpture, where the finer details are eerily precise but the whole of its inanimate form inspires an inexplicable disgust. A lot of games being made in this current generation provoke this reaction, at least in me. The technology used is advanced enough to create generally convincing facsimiles of reality, but they cannot quite nail the minor details that are indicative of life, such as the spark in living eyes or the way lips twist and snarl when speaking. This shouldn't be read as a criticism against RDR2 or modern gaming in general--the RDR2 trailer was impressive overall--but this uncanny valley, it would seem, is an inevitable obstacle to be overcome in gaming's journey to reaching true graphical fidelity. There are too many otherwise beautiful games that are wrestling with this problem for it be simply an error made by lesser talents. It's bizarre in its way, in that today's games objectively look better--in so much that such a statement can be rendered objectively in the first place--but manage to break immersion with its jarring facial animations in cutscenes with greater consistency than its lesser-detailed predecessors.

In any event, the RDR2 trailer is otherwise stunning. I'm hoping they do away with the original game's morality system; it was hollow and did little to serve either narrative or gameplay. The trailer seems to suggest that the main character is decidedly black hat. I hope that remains so.

So will this be a story focused game or will the story take a back seat to the multiplayer? I am surprised Rockstar even considers a story mode with how insanely popular GTA V online continues to be.

Both of the trailers released so far seem to focus on the story. I think they realize that the single player experience helps to sell the multiplayer game. And this is a game where they know the customer base is looking forward to another deep single player game to match the original; it's unlikely they'll put the initial focus on multiplayer. I'd guess they'll follow what they did with GTAV by using the single player to get people to buy the game initially, then keep adding to the multiplayer to keep people playing as long as possible.

Well, I think I played probably 45 hours of RDR, and maybe 2 of that was the story. I just could not stay out of the MP when I booted that thing up, and I'll be the first to admit there wasn't much to do in that MP. It was just so much fun to run around in a small group chasing people.

I've never booted up the multiplayer on RDR and only spent maybe 10 minutes in multiplayer on GTAV. Different strokes, but even with how popular GTAV MP is I can't see them abandoning single player experiences since it's so much of what made their games popular.

I think I played the multi player once...
