Today is the day Rockstar has released the trailer for the upcoming open-world western adventure Red Dead Redemption My Name is John Marston Trailer. Take a look at the trailer as it hints at some of Marston’s motivation and highlights and some of the colorful characters he meets along the way. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one as Rockstar takes an open world environment and free roam abilities like Grand Theft Auto and puts them into the old west. The new environments will include frontier towns, prairies and mountain passes instead of the traffic and tall buildings found in GTA games. So I wonder if it’s by Rockstar and has the feel of Rockstar games we love, will it include the Old Wests houses of ill-repute? I guess we will have to wait and see.
So grab you six shooter as Red Dead Redemption is set to release for the Xbox 360 and the PS3 April 2010.
