It seems that the posters going up in New York did indeed mark the beginning of a stronger marketing push for Red Dead Redemption 2, like we had hoped.

Tomorrow, August 9th, Rockstar Games will be posting the first official gameplay trailer for the game.

Announced via the Newswire and Rockstar's social media profiles, the gameplay video will be published at 11 AM Eastern Time. 11 AM ET was also the time when the game's second trailer went live, incidentally. The video will be available on their website as well as the official Rockstar Facebook, YouTube and Twitch channels.

This will be the first time we get to see Red Dead Redemption 2 in motion in an unscripted manner. All previous footage seen in the previous three trailers was pre-rendered or scripted.

Much of the second trailer seemed to be cut together from cutscenes, for example. Hopefully tomorrow's trailer will be raw gameplay, HUD and all included.

The trailer's announcement is accompanied by a nice piece of new art depicting what is most likely Dutch based on the attire - the character's face isn't shown - holding a revolver ready to fire. This, of course, doesn't tell us much about the game we didn't know. That will be the trailer's job.

We haven't seen any footage of gameplay, nor do we have any raw screenshots so far, meaning tomorrow will be the first glimpse of the game as we, the players, will see it. Tune in for up to date coverage of the new info revealed by the trailer later tomorrow.

The post Official Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Video Coming Tomorrow appeared first on RDR2.

I'll take what I can get. This artwork makes me wonder though if we'll be able to fan the hammer. That would awesome. Looks like maybe some engraving options too?

You bring up a good point.

I realize "respawning" is not a real-world thing, but this game would be boring as funk if it didn't exist in it.

That said, how cool would it be if they made this game to be as real-world as possible?

Like, if you do as you say and acquire a special gun in multiplayer, modify it, add embellishments, etc. -- but if you get killed, you have to re-acquire it. Whether it be to race back to your death site or to get it off the person who picked it up from you. (whether by purchase, by trade, or by force.)

Speaking of which, how cool would it be if we could HOLD-UP other players and rob them??

Man, there could be SO MUCH in this game that could be so cool. 

But the @Truth of the matter is -- I'll still love it, regardless.

I like and hate that idea... Really depends which side of that I'm on though lol

I don't care for funk either.

You were able to fan the hammer in Red Dead Redemption but your character only did it when using Dead Eye so my guess is that it'll work the same way in Red Dead Redemption II, you can also see Arthur fan the hammer during a duel in trailer 3.

The engraved Schofield looks cool as well, this artwork is most likely of Dutch judging by the engraving on the gun and the rings we've already seen him wear in screenshots and trailers.

Definitely more of a Hollywood element that would fit in a game (fanning).  Done it only a couple times on my own SA .357 Blackhawk with .38's although I wouldn't recommend it.  Fanning is very hard on the gun and very inaccurate for most although when you see the likes of professional cowboy shooters like Bob Munden and others doing slip hammering, fanning, etc. (albeit with customized versions), they sure make the practice look effective.  ....but then when you spend most of life honing your skill, I guess you can get pretty proficient at just about anything.

A very cool thing nonetheless.

Not sure if someone above has already pointed this out but I heard in one of the interviews that you can. They have changed the way you fire, so holding down the trigger slightly draws back the hammer (to intimidate people), then all the way fires the gun. Fanning the hammer is possible by holding down the trigger if I remember rightly. 

From a game site:

Quote

Expect gunplay to evolve in Red Dead Redemption 2. Since this is the Wild West, a lot of it has you using a revolver and this time around Rockstar is intent on making it feel involved. Holding the trigger on the controller raises your revolver’s hammer and letting it go allows you to fire a shot. Mashing it fans the hammer allowing for multiple shots. You can also fire an entire magazine without Dead Eye — the series’ take on slow-mo shooting. Weapons can be customised and upgraded and while you carry a few guns on your person accessible via a weapon wheel, a bulk of your heavy arsenal is stored on your horse.

I remember coming across videos of Bob Munden in quickdraw competitions. It honestly blew my mind the first time I saw him shoot, he not only shot with insane speed but with exceptional accuracy. I later watched interviews with him and it's fair to say that modesty was something he'd never heard of but you can afford to be a bit big-headed when your one of the best there is at what you do.

24 hours from now. 

What are you expecting/hoping/praying to see or not see from it?

I'm hoping to see the ragdoll and how it compares to Red Dead Redemption as well as whether we'll be able to crouch, change shoulders, use boats, customize our weapons etc.

Pretty boring stuff I know but it's all I can think of off the top of our head.

Yeah, folks like him, Jerry Miculek and the like tend to come off like that but I think that's common with those type A personalities.   

I don't know if you remember or ever heard of this guy (Jim Zubiena) but this video clip from a Miami Vice episode (1984?) wasn't sped up for effect.  The only issue I recall hims talking about was that the plastic gloves he's wearing for the storyline hung on the trigger a few times so it took a some takes to get it right.  This guy was incredibly fast.  ...plus he's a 1911 fan so that's always a plus with me being an enthusiast and owner myself.  :)

Sorry for getting off topic....

I haven't watched Miami Vice for near 11 years but I remember this character and how his actions and body language just exuded cold professionalism and efficiency but I never noticed how fast he was in this scene, I also loved the score that proceeded his kills whenever he slipped away.

It would be so cool that I wouldn't play MP.   We have talked about gankers and griefers a bit in this forum.  This would only fuel those fires.

AHH!! But what if that's Rockstar's great plan for fighting the "gankers and griefers"??

In the real world, 150 years ago, these same types existed! Robbery was rampant. Murder was commonplace. Bandits and gangs ran the show.

(That's what these jerks would be! Outlaw gangs!)

THEN . . . 

Justice appeared!

. . . in the form of sheriffs, marshals, and gathered posses!  

They'd amass their forces, hunt them down, and either arrest them or execute them.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO EXECUTE A TROLL??

Or HEY! What if you could throw them into jail, and they'd INSTANTLY lose all their weapons and much of their money?? (kinda like in GTA) Then, they'd have to start all over again.

That's quite literally "policing" trolls!

I love this . . .  #ihopeihopeihope
