The closer it gets to the end of the month, the closer Red Dead Redemption 2 becomes a real thing. To send the idea home, Rockstar released the official Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer today where they highlight the main story of the game. 

We find the game's main protagonist Arthur Morgan getting told he only needs to have one more big score before he can leave. Viewers can then see plenty of ways Arthur and the gang can get into trouble, from a train robbery to holding up a bank at gunpoint.

There's a lot left untold by the end, but one thing's for sure -- Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming. You still have until October 26 to pre-order the game for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, which you can do so here

You can also look forward to the game's online presence, though you're going to have to wait until November for it to launch. We cover what you can expect from it here

Excited for the game's guns and combat? Rockstar hinted at the game's massive weaponry and customization options earlier this month, which we covered here

Stick to GameSkinny as we cover Red Dead Redemption 2 later this month and wait to hear our review!

Rockstar Games is known for getting their inspiration from movies and popular culture. Sometimes it’s the general outline of the entire main storyline (Red Dead Redemption and Wild Bunch), sometimes it’s the art, setting, and ambiance (GTA: Vice City and Scarface). The way they mix tropes and memes and create new ones in the process is always a joy to watch. If and how much they’ll draw upon any of the movies from this list in Red Dead Redemption 2 still remains to be seen. Whatever the outcome, we can’t wait to find that out when the game comes out on the 26th of October.

8. Django: Unchained (2012)
\n

You might be forgiven for thinking that not much has changed in the western genre since the original Red Dead Redemption came out in 2010. In case you weren't paying attention to the other audiovisual medium, this happened: a groundbreaking spaghetti blaxploitation western written and directed by Quentin Tarantino.

\n

Django: Unchained is at its core a universally relatable story of vengeance, love and freedom. As such, it is just an amazing movie, period, and anyone designing a narrative could benefit from analysing how Tarantino wrote it.

\n

It’s also the first popular movie that depicted racial tensions in the Old West in a work of fiction meant mainly for entertainment.

\n

Red Dead Redemption's producer and main writer for both games, Dan Houser, said back in 2009:

\n
\n

We didn’t fully represent era-appropriate racial attitudes because it’s too unpleasant to deal with, but we touch on those issues

\n
\n

The first game dodged this aspect of the Old West. In 2018 it’s safe to say that we’re ready to face at least some of that unpleasantness and that the general public appreciates inclusive stories that try to maturely approach all intricacies of their chosen setting.

7. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)
\n

This one’s pretty obvious, since we already know Red Dead Redemption 2 references The Assassination, at least in its trailer.

\n

The legendary Jesse James (Brad Pitt) is followed by a starstruck fan, Robert Ford (Casey Affleck), who tries to join the James-Younger gang. Train robberies, a botched heist, infighting within the gang, conflicting loyalties and honor among thieves — there’s a lot in this movie that could inspire a story beat or two in RDR2’s depiction of the dissolution of the Van der Linde gang.

\n

For now, at least the film's beautiful cinematography made it to the game's trailer, which leads me to believe Red Dead Redemption 2 may be the second game with movie-grade visual storytelling coming out this year.

6. Justified (2010–2015)
\n

Neither a movie nor a western, Justified tells the story of Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) as his over-the-top Wild-West brand of justice gets him sent to his backwater home county of Harlan, Kentucky.

\n

For many viewers, though, the real hero of Justified is Raylan's friend from the old days, Boyd Crowder. Played with equal parts ham and finesse by Walton Goggins, the sly, affable, entrepreneurial criminal displaying model Southern manners arguably steals the show from the second season onwards.

\n

Even though Justified has a contemporary setting, it's so intent on depicting the rural US as the modern frontier, that it's a western in all but the appearances. Red Dead Redemption 2 would do well featuring a slightly larger-than-life magnificent bastard with Goggins' voice, no matter which side of the law he would occupy.

5. Unforgiven (1992)
\n

It’s the last Clint Eastwood movie on this list, I promise! Stay with me though, cause this one’s a real diamond and a Best Picture Oscar winner.

\n

Let’s face it, if Red Dead Redemption had one flaw, it was the way it dealt with morality. The game just doesn’t work well if we’re trying to make John Marston a bad guy. It even sent us to perform honorable genocide on a band of cattle thieves (quite literally rewarding us with Honor points for murder) in the name of the law as soon as its fourth story mission. Red Dead Redemption 2, on the other hand, is set to feature alternate approaches to conflicts and more interesting ways to be a bandit. It would be a waste if its story didn’t depict a complex society where good and evil are about more than the color of one’s hat.

\n

Like The Missouri Breaks, Unforgiven makes sure your sympathies don’t completely agree with the legal delineation, though Gene Hackman is a very convincing and layered character as the movie’s sheriff. This film is also a deconstruction of iconic western tropes and features an absolutely badass portrayal of the outlaw archetype. Since we’ll be able to pick between good guy and bad guy lines in Red Dead Redemption 2, we can only hope they’re as powerful as the final dialogues of Unforgiven.

4. The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)
\n

Eastwood’s directorial debut is a simpler and more straightforward vision of the outlaw life, that also has some pacing problems. The heart of the story, however — a chased man’s search for a semblance of family and home, is very much in line with what we’ve seen in the trailers for Red Dead Redemption 2 so far.

\n

The movie's not perfect — its action scenes and dialogues are a bit stilted by today's standards. Eastwood's Confederate sympathies are probably at their strongest here, which harms the story by crudely drawing a very thick line between good and evil. It's a beloved classic, though, drawing upon as well as cementing many tropes of the genre.

3. Hang 'em High (1968)
\n

One of the first revisionist westerns. It features Clint Eastwood as Jed Cooper, a man first wrongly accused of stealing cattle and lynched, then saved from near-death by a marshal and offered the chance to take vengeance with a badge in his hand.

\n

Not only does the movie set up a grey morality from the very beginning, it proceeds to point out the hypocrisy of its lawful society, where a desire for vengeance, influence and a sense of belonging are passed off as longing for justice. 

\n

Back when Rockstar was making the original game, Rob Wiethoff, the voice actor portraying John Marston said of the character’s past:

\n
\n

I think John made some decisions in his life that made him feel accepted. I don’t know if he knew that what he was doing was wrong or not. I don’t know if he cared until, one day, he realized he didn’t want that life anymore.

\n
\n

Those words aren’t exactly canon, but if Rockstar proceeds with that or a similar interpretation of Morgan’s and Marston’s actions in RDR2, they’re going to need to picture a society that pushed them into this life. A society as flawed as the one depicted in Hang ’Em High.

2. The Missouri Breaks (1976)
\n

Speaking of bounty hunters, it takes a really unsavory character chasing after outlaws to make the audience sympathize with the gang instead of the law. Marlon Brando was just such a character as a regulator who hunts down Tom Logan’s (Jack Nicholson) jolly band of rustlers.

\n

The Missouri Breaks matches the freedom vs order theme of the dying frontier that Red Dead Redemption 2 seems to be going for. Nicholson’s character is a semi-decent guy who just happens to be stealing horses from a land baron that has enough money to have him and his friends all killed. Plus, you can’t help but notice that he even looks a bit like both RDR protagonists. If the young John Marston had his own gang, this is how I’d picture it.

\n

There's also the fact that Rockstar blogged about the real-life inspiration behind Brando's character back in the RDR days.

1. For a Few Dollars More (1965)
\n

All signs point to Red Dead Redemption 2's main theme being gangs of the Old West. There’s plenty of inspiration the game could take from a movie about two bounty hunters infiltrating the gang of a ruthless, sociopathic murderer haunted by the sins of his past. Perhaps we’ll see Arthur Morgan and John Marston worming their way into a rival outfit that threatens the Van der Linde gang? Or maybe Dutch will ally them with another band that will turn out to be out of control due to its leader smoking opium to cope with his animalistic nature?

Red Dead Redemption is an open-world masterpiece and, arguably, the best story ever written by Rockstar. The development team took field trips to the Library of Congress to learn from history and watched countless western films to inform and inspire the journey of John Marston as he hunts down his former gangmates across the dying Old West of 1911.

\n

The original game’s narrative took cues most ostensibly from Wild Bunch and A Fistful of Dollars, with more than a hint of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid in its finale. Red Dead Redemption 2 has a different story to tell, though, and it can draw upon the following westerns to shape the fate of its new protagonist, Arthur Morgan.

Rockstar Games Posts Teaser Image for Possible "Red Dead" Game on Twitter https://www.gameskinny.com/f7m4g/rockstar-games-posts-teaser-image-for-possible-red-dead-game-on-twitter https://www.gameskinny.com/f7m4g/rockstar-games-posts-teaser-image-for-possible-red-dead-game-on-twitter Sun, 16 Oct 2016 08:14:40 -0400 Adam Morris

Earlier today, Rockstar Games posted what seems to be a teaser image for the much anticipated follow-up to 2010's Red Dead Redemption on Twitter. The image features the signature red and black coloring with a faded Rockstar logo. Rockstar also changed all of their avatars and banners on Twitter to match the art style.

With the release of Red Dead Revolver on PlayStation 4 last week, and this image today, it seems we have an announcement on the horizon. Rumors have circulated for a long time of another open world western game, with the game's map supposedly being leaked a while back.

Some readers will notice the map features the city of New Bordeaux, the setting of Take-Two Published, Mafia III. Take-Two has recently announced that Rockstar studios is:

"of course hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon"

Red Dead Redemption has a 95 on Metacritic and was many site's game of the year for 2010.

6 Games We Want To See At E3 2016 https://www.gameskinny.com/nzygv/6-games-we-want-to-see-at-e3-2016 https://www.gameskinny.com/nzygv/6-games-we-want-to-see-at-e3-2016 Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:30:02 -0400 Rob Thubron

1. Half-Life 3

\n

Picture the scene: it's E3 2016 and Valve is wrapping up its conference. Gabe Newell's been jabbering away about Steam Machines, virtual reality, the future of gaming and DOTA 2. He makes to walk off stage, only to theatrically return to the microphone and announce there was one more thing he forgot to talk about. Everything goes dark, nothing comes on the screen, then a familiar voice booms out of the speakers - it's instantly recognised as the G-Man

\n

"Welcome back... Mr. Freeman"

\n

His face slowly appears out the darkness, more detailed than we've ever seen before. Cue much delirium from the gathered crowd and the Internet actually melting into a puddle.

\n

In reality, the hype and expectation surrounding Half-Life 3 has reached almost comical levels. The worry is that it will never be made, as it would be impossible for it to live up to expectations. Anything other than the greatest game ever made would be seen as a disappointment. 

\n

So, does it at least exist in a very early form, located somewhere on Valve's hard drives? Supposedly, it does. Counter Strike co-creator Minh Lee said:

\n
\n

"I think it's kind of public knowledge that people know that it is being worked on. And so if I were to say that, yeah, I've seen some images, like some concept art of it, that wouldn't be big news to be honest. I guess I could say that I did see something that looked kinda like in the Half-Life universe."

\n

And I mean it wouldn't surprise anyone if I said they're doing it, they're working on it, yeah. So to go out on a limb I'd say I did some concept art for Half-Life 3."

\n
\n

Remember, a lot of people didn't think Fallout 4 existed before that first trailer went online - and it had been in development for years. I believe the day will come when we will see Half-Life 3, and E3 2016 is when it'll be confirmed.

\n

By the time the event comes round again, the timing will be perfect for Valve to make the announcement, especially as they'll be pushing its usage on Steam machines and their VR systems. Whether it'll get a release in 2016 is less likely, perhaps aiming for a 2017 slot. But as long as we know there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, we won't mind chasing it a bit longer.

\n

What games do you want to see at E3 2016. Let us know in the comments below!

2. LA Noire 2

\n

LA Noire was released in 2011 to almost universal critical acclaim. The open-world, neo-noir detective game was praised for its use of of MotionScan technology, whereby actors' facial expressions could be captured and replicated with total fidelity (allegedly). This allowed for what was the most talked about element of the game: the interrogations. It was apparently possible to tell if a character was being dishonest just from the change in their features. 

\n

LA Noire also gained fame for a development phase that could be the storyline for a Hollywood movie. The game was created by Australian developers Team Bondi and published by Rockstar. Once it hit the shelves, many former Team Bondi employees came forward to speak of the horrific working conditions the company forced upon on them: 100 hour work weeks, abusive management, having to come in every weekend. Rockstar also had a strained relationship with Bondi, and the pair split not long after the game's release, with the GTA creators saying they would never work together again.

\n

After the pair parted company, Rockstar retained the rights to the LA Noire franchise. While the company does have a lot of potential projects it could work on, the series seems like one of their higher priorities. Back in 2012, a Rockstar spokesperson said:

\n
\n

"Don't count out the possibility of a new game in the L.A. Noire franchise in the future. We simply have not decided anything. We're all very pleased with how that game turned out and are considering what the future may hold for L.A. Noire as a series. We don't always rush to make sequels, but that does not mean we won't get to them eventually..."

\n
\n

The possibility of bringing a new LA Noire game into this eighth generation of consoles and 4K PCs is an exciting one. The revolutionary technology the last game brought us could be improved even more, perhaps to the point of Tron: Legacy-style digital facial reproduction (just without the dead eyes). The game could even be set in a different era; the seventies and eighties would certainly give plenty of potential for dark crimes and cynical detectives.

\n

So will we see LA Noire 2 at E3 2016? There's a good chance, if only as a teaser trailer to show that Rockstar is currently working on it.

3. Red Dead Redemption 2

\n

For a great many people, myself included, the mere mention of the words Red Dead Redemption stirs up levels of adulation that a mere video game shouldn't be able to produce. 

\n

Red Dead Redemption was, quite simply, brilliant. And you didn't even have to be a fan of cowboys to love it (though that probably helped). This open-world game dragged you into its story, giving you a real connection to reformed bad-guy protagonist John Marston. This was more than just a wild west version of Grand Theft Auto, it was something totally different; and, many will argue, a better game than Rockstar's other open-world epic. For those lucky enough to have seen its story through to completion, the game had an incredibly emotional ending - one that will stay fresh in the memory of those who experienced it for many years to come.

\n

So where is the next installment? If the rumor mill is to believed, we won't even have to wait until E3 2016 to see Red Dead Redemption 2 (or Red Dead Rebellion, as some think it will be called), as the game will be announced later on this year.

\n

Whether that is the case or not remains to be seen, but if it turns out that 2015 isn't RDR2's time, then chances are good for an E3 2016 reveal.

"},{"image":"http://s3.amazonaws.com/gameskinnyop/3/4/6/346b1e0e7b2c96b2a24552b52e6e9afd.jpg","thumb":"http://s3.amazonaws.com/gameskinnyop/3/4/6/tiny_346b1e0e7b2c96b2a24552b52e6e9afd.jpg","type":"slide","id":"71370","description":"

4. Max Payne 4

\n

There are two issues surrounding a new Max Payne game: after everything he's been through, where is there for the character to go? Has the linear style of gameplay from the previous games now had its day? 

\n

Well, Rockstar is a master of re-invention. Should a new Max Payne ever see the light of day, expect it to be a massive move away from games of old. With the open-world style of gaming now more popular than its ever been, don't be surprised to see Max move into more of a GTA-type universe (his last incarnation did have a bit of Michael De Santa about him). As for what new personal horror and tale of redemption our hero could face - maybe being forced into some kind of suicide mission is something to consider? I'm sure if the game is does get made, Rockstar will think up something suitably grim and dark - but one that always concludes on a positive message, naturally.

\n

Out of all the franchises Rockstar owns, Max Payne is likely to be quite low down on the list of ones to reintroduce. A reinvention of the series would be something to look forward to, especially for fans of the previous games, but seeing it at next year's E3 would be a surprise, albeit a nice one.

5. Dawn Of War 3

\n

"In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war", or so the cheery prophecy from the Warhammer 40K universe goes. It seems the grimmest thing about our future is its lack of a Dawn of War 3 game - someone hurry up and make it!

\n

The Dawn of War series contained some of the best RTS titles ever created - particularly for fans of the tabletop games that the digital versions are based on. But it was Dawn Of War 2's revolutionary mixture of real-time strategy and role-playing elements that made fans so eager to get their hands on DoW3.

\n

Sadly, after several years of financial struggles and an increasing amount of debt, Dawn of War publishers THQ declared bankruptcy in December 2012. All was not lost, however, as the game's developer Relic, who had been acquired by THQ in 2004, was sold to SEGA as part of the bankruptcy asset auction.

\n

It's rumored that since Relic completed Company of Heroes 2 and its expansion packs, the company has been hiring staff for a new, large project - could it be Dawn of War 3?

\n

With the upcoming release of Total War: Warhammer, the gaming world is about to see a resurgence in popularity for the Games Workshop universe. When E3 2016 gets here, the timing will be perfect to reveal the next iteration of this fantastic series.

Out of all the games on this list, Team Fortress 3 is the one we're least likely to see at E3 2016. Why? Because even though the second entry in the series was released all the way back in 2007, it's still the third most popular game on Steam - getting around 75,000 players every day.

\n

The community surrounding Team Fortress 2 is a huge and passionately dedicated one. Developers Valve realize that right now, there simply isn't any need for a sequel, as so many people are still in love with TF2.

\n

The big question is whether we'll ever see a new iteration of the Team Fortress franchise. Personally, I think we will, but it will vastly differ from the games that have come before. And it's very, very unlikely to be revealed at next year's E3, no matter how cool that would be.

As people take stock of everything we've learned from E3, there are those who are already looking towards next year's event and wondering what new surprises could be revealed in 12 months' time. 

\n

Although everyone knew beforehand that Fallout 4 would be shown this year, its grand reveal at the event was still met with much opened-mouthed gasping. The best part of these Electronic Entertainment Expos is the excitement that comes with the big game announcements: what will we see? Will it be any good? Why the hell have they not talked about the game we've been waiting 5 years for?

\n

But, as everyone knows, there are those 'upcoming' titles that feel like a mirage in the dessert: you can see them on the horizon, but you're not sure if they're real. Every time another E3 comes round, you're hoping to discover the oasis wasn't just an illusion. 

\n

Out of all the games on this list, some have a good chance of actually making an appearance in 2016, while others may be more wishful thinking than anything else.

\n

So, in 365 days' time, here are the six games we hope to be talking about - and how amazing they looked at E3 2016.
