Red Dead Redemption 2 launch trailer builds hype for return to Wild West

Rockstar is gearing up gamers for the PS4 and Xbox One game's release next week.

The launch trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 dropped on Thursday, giving us one last look at the game ahead of its release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The Wild West open-world adventure game is a prequel to 2010's beloved Red Dead Redemption and stars Arthur Morgan, a debt collector for the Van der Linde gang in 1899. The trailer focuses on the game's story, hinting at the drama within the gang.

On Wednesday, publisher Rockstar tweeted that those who've preordered the digital edition can start preloading this Friday at midnight ET. 

The company's co-founder, Dan Houser, on Wednesday was forced to clarify a suggestion that the development team worked 100-hour weeks several times throughout 2018.

Red Dead Redemption 2 arrives on Oct. 26.
