Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 And Xbox One Box Art Is Striking
Arthur Morgan is front and center.
The newest trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally here, and that's not the only revelation about the much-anticipated western today. What appears to be the game's box art has popped up online at places like Amazon and Rockstar's own website. It shows main character Arthur Morgan pointing a revolver with a menacing look on his face. Also on the page are seven silhouettes, which are presumably the other members of the Van der Linde gang who are at the heart of the story.
What's more, the striking box art shows the stars of the American flag. Overall, the art has a warm, red-and-orange color scheme with forest trees alluding to locations in the game.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is set in 1899 America, 12 years before the events of 2010's Red Dead Redemption. The story picks up after a robbery goes wrong in Blackwater, with Morgan and the gang on the run; federal agents and bounty hunters are tracking them down. "As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him," reads a line from Rockstar's official description of the story.
The new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer is stuffed with interesting details; here are 11 fascinating details we caught in the new video.
Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Rockstar Games historically does not have a big presence at E3, but anything is possible, especially considering Rockstar's partnership with Sony to give PlayStation gamers first access to some of Red Dead Redemption 2's online content.
