Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the year's biggest games, so it's no surprise that publisher Rockstar Games will push it hard on the marketing side. Billboards for the much-anticipated Westerners have begun to appear on the American East Coast, and they look quite spectacular. The signs show the protagonist Arthur Morgan, as well as other members of the Van der Linde gang. You can see some of the New York City billboards below.
Billboards also show what seems to be Red Dead Redemption 2's marketing tagline: "Outlaws For Life." Rockstar's parent company, Take-Two Interactive, trademarked this statement in the US a few days ago. If that name sounds familiar, it's because it's close to the Red Dead Redemption extension "Outlaws to the End."
Billboards went up at the same time as the game's first game trailer was released last week. The extended trailer gave the fans a good look at how the game will actually play and cover some of the many activities you can participate in. Check out the video in the office.
"After a robbery has gone badly in the western city of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and Van der Linde the gang is forced to flee," explains Rockstar. "With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation who massages on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight over the fast heart of America to survive. As deeper internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must choose between his own ideals and loyalty with the gang who raised him … Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America at the beginning of the modern age. "
A former trailer confirmed that the first Red Dead Redemption's protagonist , John Marston, will look. After delays, Rockstar's parent company Take-Two has said that Red Dead Redemption 2's release date will not change again and will start on October 26th. It is now set for release on PS4 and Xbox One. Although a PC version has not been officially confirmed, a programmer who works on the game has indicated that Read Dead Redemption 2 could come to PC.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is not expected to sell as many copies as Rockstar's previous game, Grand Theft Auto V, but Take-Two believes the game can "redefine our industry" and "impress the audience around the world."
