Digital Foundry reports that the engine is using more sophisticated techniques to render in-game characters and effects, meaning that players, in the end, are going to get a better overall gameplay experience.
The sprawling six-minute video, which was apparently captured running on a PlayStation 4 Pro, shows off numerous Rockstar open-world staples.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to release on October 26, 2018 on PS4 and Xbox One. We see prompts for Greet, Defuse, Antagonize, Threaten, Dismiss, Beat, Rob, and Choke, among others. According to Rockstar, its aim with Red Dead Redemption 2 is to not only create an open world but to also make the world a deeper and more interactive place.
Rockstar announced only yesterday that we'd be shown a brand-new trailer, and it certainly didn't disappoint. After a robbery goes wrong in the town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee.
As hinted at before, the structure of the game revolves around a moveable base camp where you get to know your fellow outlaws and pick up quests. Before Thursday's new reveal, fans had to be content with scrutinizing a trailer from May 2, which has been streamed over 25 million times.
As usual with Rockstar games, player choice will play a massive part in determining the outcome of your story, which is set to take place in 1899.
