We know that there are only a few days until we can finally play one of the most anticipated games of the year, but who wouldn’t cheer at a 24-second sneak peek into the gameplay?
That’s right, a few seconds of Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay just leaked.
Even though the game was available for pre-loading from last week, the game will be released this Friday, on 26 October, on PS4 and Xbox One.
Rockstar Games is known for taking down any evidence of the game, only presenting the official previews and trailers, but we all know that the Internet won’t stop trying to break the rules.
Spoiler alert ahead (no story spoiler)!
Red Dead Redemption Gameplay Leak
Last night, the popular gaming forum ResetEra and Reddit have been ‘assaulted’ with a short video showing some gameplay footage. If you don’t want any spoilers, then don’t click here or here. But let’s be honest, you came here to check out the spoilers.
The footage shows the protagonist Arthur Morgan on a horse, shooting cowboys. Many Red Dead Redemption fans will recognize some features like the mini-map, the wanted system and the special menu for weapons. What’s new is the slow motion kill cam that will give you a new view of the carnage from many angles. There’s also some horse items and Premium Cigarette Packs that you can obtain for a collectible cigarette card.
If the official trailers have not convinced you whether you should get the game or not, then this clip might help you decide. The great visuals and smooth animations complete the Old West theme, so if you have not watched the brief leaked video, you should do it before it is removed.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Reviews
If the game comes out this Friday, then when can you read some reviews on the game before spending your money? You should check out Metacritic, who Tweeted:
“Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4/XONE): Reviews will start going up on Thursday, October 25 at 4:01am Pacific. Any Metascore predictions for this HIGHLY anticipated title?”
Probably by now, you’ve made up your mind. And if you want to stay away from leaks, then stay away from the Internet for a while!
