Gun-slinging Wild West action sequel coming this fall

A sequel to the 2004 Wild West adventure, Red Dead Revolver, has today been confirmed by Rockstar San Diego for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this Fall.

Powered by Rockstar’s RAGE engine, Red Dead Redemption will be set at the beginning of the 20th century across the open-world environment of the American frontier. Expect to ride through perilous mountain passes and across wildlife-infested prairies, while stopping off at dangerous frontier towns along the way, where you’ll no doubt get caught up in the odd bar brawl and shoot-out.

Commenting in the official press release, the founder of Rockstar Games said, “The team at San Diego have massively exceeded our expectations with the sheer depth of experiences in Red Dead Redemption.”

“The seamless combination of breathtaking beauty and intense action, all woven together with strong plotlines in a massive vibrant, rural environment is mind-blowing. We think this game helps to push the limits of what an open-world gaming experience can be.”

Judging by the first screenshots, it certainly looks impressive. We’ll have more details about Red Dead Redemption as we get them.
