John Marston Joins Arthur Morgan for New Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Trailer

Rockstar Games has released their third trailer for the upcoming open world game set in the wild, wild west. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 hit title Red Dead Redemption which released in May of 2010 after stealing the show at the E3 event of that respective year. It had one of the largest wrap-around lines I’ve ever seen for a behind-closed-doors showing of a game for which not much was known at the time.

In RDR 2 players will find themselves learning a lot more about the time period before the events of Red Dead Redemption. As the trailer opens we see that the gang of outlaws which RDR’s main protagonist used to run with is on the run in a time when outlaws were becoming a thing of the past. The clip tells viewers that the game is at least partially set in 1899 when ‘the west had nearly been tamed’ and ‘the age of gunslingers and outlaws had almost passed into myth’.

RealGamerNewZ 6.0 Update

A little introduction as to who we are, where we’ve been, and where we’re going. Lately the RGN team has been regrouping behind-the-scenes and prepping for this year’s big E3 2018 event taking place in Los Angeles wherein Microsoft is expected to announce a ton of Xbox news to revitalize the brand while Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro and PSVR platforms continue to grow and Nintendo keeps the flames lit with its new smash hit hybrid device the Nintendo Switch.

That being said, we are reaching a lot of new viewers who might not know what RGN is like and what types of content we’ve been creating since our inception.

  • In 2010 a group of former games journalists sick of the censorship and relationship politics of coverage in video games news media created a floating podcast across now defunct platforms including Blip TV, Examiner, and multiple HipHopGamer websites which are now sadly unavailable.
  • In 2011 we formed our own website for RealGamerNewZ and although we’ve enjoyed millions of pageviews across over eight thousand articles we are best known for being an outspoken and essentially underground gaming news, reviews, interviews, and opinions source.

Despite being often outspoken and delivering the unpopular opinions of the hardcore gamers who are often scared to speak their mind in today’s environment, we’ve also been endorsed and supported by sponsors such as Rockstar Games, SteelSeries, Microsoft, Devolver Digital, Bethesda Game Studios, Mastertronic, Activision Blizzard, Focus Home Interactive, Surprise Attack Games, Curve Digital, Ubisoft, Headup Games, Deep Silver, Paradox Interactive, Square Enix, Team 17, Koei Temo, Nkidu, Telltale Games, tinyBuild Games, NIS America, and a lot more!

So what’s next for RGN? We still work with great companies to this day, and we are planning to increase our ability to help shine light on lesser known indie games while offering Market Research on the deeper topics occurring industry-wide and of course providing our opinions alongside news coverage for AA games, AAA games, and everything in between.
