Just days after officially alerting the world to the game's existence, Rockstar Games has dropped the first trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2. And while there's not much in the way of plot details or even action, there are some b-e-a-utiful landscapes to fawn over.

And, oh hey, this one:
"When the time comes, you gotta run and don't look back," the trailer's narrator says. "This is over."
*Cue the ride out*
WHAT DOES IT MEAN!?
The highly anticipated game is the third in the Red Dead series and follows 2010's Red Dead Redemption, which won Game of the Year honors from several outlets. An expansive open world game set in the Old West, Red Dead Redemption is widely considered to be one of the best games from the seventh generation of consoles, if not of all time.
Upon announcement, Rockstar described the game as "an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland," adding, "The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience."
Get that Dead Eye ready and set your sights on a Fall 2017 release for Xbox One and Playstation 4. With the eight generation of consoles well upon us and Westworld giving cowboys yet another wave, it can't come at a better time.
