Red Dead Redemption, released on xbox 360 and PS2 on May 18th, is an open-world, third-person, action-adventure game set at the tail end of the American West West era. Action takes place in the first few years of the twentieth century and revolves around the choices that the protagonist, former outlaw John Marston, is forced to make due to his blemished past. The game features a morality system assigning honor and fame points generated through the player’s choices. It also features Wild West themed mini-games, new targeting and cover systems, extensive horse riding abilities, a wealth of period specific weapons and more than 40 huntable animals.
The debut trailer for Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption features music from the game and is comprised entirely of gameplay footage.
A movie version of the wild west game is in the works and sources say that Brad Pitt is the hot favorite to play renegade outlaw John Marston .
â€œThis is an exciting project with a great character at the center of it,â€ a source said. â€œThe idea is to make this in the style of an epic Western movie but with a few modern touches. Brad is perfect for the role.â€
