Rockstar Games has released a trailer for the upcoming televised short-film created using their Wild West epic Red Dead Redemption. Until now, it wasn’t exactly clear what the short would consist of, but based on the trailer, it appears that it uses a bunch of the cutscenes from the early portion of the game to tell a 30-minute version of the game’s first act. As a result, it just looks like a trailer for the game. No?
I was kind of hoping the short would tell a part of John Marston’s story that wasn’t in the game, but it doesn’t look like that’s the case. Guess we’ll know for sure when it airs Saturday night on Fox.
Just for comparison's sake, here's Rockstar's "My Name is John Marston" trailer for the game. I knew the short-film trailer seemed familiar.
