New Red Dead Redemption 2 screenshots make me want to ride off into the sunset


I’ve seen enough

Supplementing this week’s trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar has a handful of new screenshots depicting the Van der Linde gang. Arthur Morgan and co. may be on the run from federal agents and bounty hunters, but at least they can take in some gorgeous scenery along the way.

Like Red Dead Redemption before it — and, more recently, Far Cry 5 — I think I’m most looking forward to just being able to explore nature and take in the sights and sounds at my own pace. Naturally the story will be a big draw as well, but I hope to take my time with this one and make the most of the world. It’s not every day we get a new Rockstar Games sandbox to play in, y’know?

I’m also very pleased to see the all-powerful bow and arrow return. Practical or not, I will absolutely stick with that weapon as my mainstay for this or any game if given the chance.
