OK, Rockstar are just playing with us now. They’ve dropped a “launch” trailer for Red Dead Redemption II when it’s still a week away.

Varmints!

Showing fragments of what looks to be a gripping wild west story, it’s all about honour amongst thieves and, of course, horses and guns. All the horses and guns.

After more than the odd delay, Red Dead Redemption II finally hits the big wide world for PS4 and Xbox One on October 26.
