Red Dead Redemption 2 is only a few days away, but it has just experienced one of its first major leaks — and it has fans very excited.
The leak, which first appeared on a Resetera thread, is a 24-second video showing protagonist Arthur Morgan getting off his horse seemingly during an interrogation, only to quickly shoot down the interrogators. Though some get away, the last one Arthur shoots gets a special focus in a kill cam, slow-motion look at his death.
Fans all over the Internet are reacting to the footage, some noting how great it looks, others discussing its UI, the impressive gunshot audio, and some warning others of the likelihood of more, spoiler-heavy leaks potentially coming.
Saw a clip of RDR2 from a spoiler free leak. The gameplay looks better than anything Rockstar has shown. This is unbelievable. Is it Friday yet?— Mitch (@mitchvaught) October 22, 2018
Reddit user aceattorneymbp wrote “This 24-second clip got me more hyped for the game than all of the trailers Rockstar has released thus far.” Another user Lupiv wrote “It’s hard to believe that anyone could make a game with graphics like this and still have such a smooth looking framerate.”
