After "#Red Dead Redemption" became a part of the Xbox One backwards compatibility list, fans were quick to inquire about the sequel. At the time, Rockstar is updating "GTA V" and has since pushed back the development of the "RDR2." Now, it looks like the game developer has come to terms with the demand, prompting the recent release of the "#Red Dead Redemption 2" trailer. And now that it's out there, just what difference will it bring to the original "RDR" game?

What's new in RDR2?

The Guardian cited significant features of the "Red Dead Redemption 2" in which, some of them were mentioned in previous rumors about the game.

Take for example the RDR2 being a prequel to the original game. According to the report, fans will be able to enjoy an all "westernized' game that features cowboys and arrows. As opposed to the ending of the original game, the sequel will not drag the cars and other modern items featured prior to its ending.

Players will fill the character of a crook named Arthur Morgan. Morgan is a member of the #Van Der Linde gang, a group that is headed by none other than Dutch van der Linde. A conflict between Morgan and Van Der Linde will develop after the latter demands respect from Morgan.

Apparently, there will be a vast environment in the game. Based on Morgan's description of the wild west talking about mountains and the slopes as well as different states coming after the group. Additionally, fans will have to deal with another ferocious animal aside from the giant bear that existed on the "Red Dead Redemption." The Guardian reveals the addition of alligators in the scene.

If that's not enough, how about the featured dual wield guns? The Guardian quoted: "Twitter is going mad with excitement over the shots of Morgan dual wielding like a latter-day Harvey Keitel." While we have not heard anything about the exact release date of RDR2, Gamespot reminds us that the game has been delayed until next year, instead of the previous fall schedule. It is, however, expected to arrive in the spring of 2018 unfortunately, not before April 1.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" is expected to arrive on the PS4 and the Xbox One. Unfortunately for PC players, the sequel may feature the same platform as the original game wherein; it was never featured on the PC platform.

Rockstar describes the sequel as "the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive."
