Red Dead Redemption 2 Receives New Digital Art Focusing on John Marston, Van Der Linde, and More

Red Dead Redemption 2 gets new artwork from Rockstar Games focusing on the main characters of the upcoming prequel, coming October 26, 2018.

High noon for Red Dead Redemption 2‘s release date is getting nearer every day, and developer Rockstar Games is already ramping up for the Wild West showdown. Yesterday they released a wanted poster on Twitter from the Pinkerton Detective Agency for the capture of Dutch van der Linde:

Today, we got something else–a brand new series of character images with quotes. Seen in the gallery below, ten of the most notable characters in Red Dead Redemption 2 (including the wanted Dutch van der Linde and John Marston) have made the cut. Behind them is the signature red-tinted backdrop of Red Dead Redemption‘s promotional shots.

As we mentioned before, news about Red Dead Redemption 2 has been relatively sparse but is undoubtedly ramping up for release. We got notice earlier in August that the latest gameplay footage was captured on a PS4 Pro, and that there will be comparable Xbox One X enhancements. On top of that, Rockstar began promoting an Outlaw Essentials collectible brand focusing on some of the cooler things you would be able to find back in that era.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available on October 26, 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One; anyone who hasn’t pre-ordered the game yet can grab the Standard, Special, or Ultimate Edition on Amazon. Meanwhile, check the gallery below for all the new screens with characters:
