Last week, Rockstar San Diego narrowed down an April release window for its upcoming Red Dead Redemption and teased a new trailer. That trailer debuted today and gave gamers not just a closer look at the game and the story behind it, but also an exact release date of April 27.
Billed as a follow-up to Revolver, Redemption takes place several years after the events in the original, closer to the turn of the century. Central to the events is John Marston, a former outlaw caught up in the uncertain times created by the industrial age encroaching on the American frontier.
Red Dead Redemption will be powered by Rockstar's proprietary RAGE engine, better known as the game tool behind Grand Theft Auto IV. Like its top-rated sibling, Redemption offers an open-world environment in which players can explore the vast regions of the West, from rolling grasslands to frontier towns. The third-person action title will also feature its fair share of action, including both mano-a-mano gunfights and larger battles.
