With the release of Red Dead Redemption in 2010, Rockstar Games captured the beauty and violence of the Wild West in an epic open-world adventure, and the studio seems to recapturing that games’ grandeur with the upcoming sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2.

As teased by Rockstar Games last week, the studio released a brand new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 giving a closer look at the Western game in motion, and shedding a bit more light on the story that will await players in the West. No firm release date was provided by the new trailer, but Spring 2018 still looks to be the targeted release window for the anticipated game.

According to the description on the game’s trailer, Red Dead Redemption 2 tells “the 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,” with the trailer showing what look like a few of the faces you will encounter throughout the journey.

First revealed by Rockstar last yearRed Dead Redemption 2 was originally planned for a Fall 2017 release window and was given a first look trailer showing its gorgeous Western environments in motion. However, earlier this year Rockstar said that it would be delaying the game to Spring 2018, as the studio said initially that “some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for fans.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 will release for PS4 and Xbox One in Spring 2018 – for a closer look at the beautiful Western game in motion, you can check out the newly-released trailer below:
