The trailer will be available on the Rockstar Games website, as well as the Rockstar Games YouTube channel. It will also be available right here, along with an analysis of what's included. Rockstar did not comment on the contents of the trailer.

What will the content of this third trailer include? Previous trailers have introduced the characters the story will focus on and the timeframe of Red Dead Redemption 2. We know from the second trailer that the protagonist is Arthur Morgan, a member of Dutch Van der Linde's gang of outlaws. Based on Dutch's appearance in the second trailer, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a prequel to Red Dead Redemption. This means Red Dead Redemption protagonist John Marston will likely be one of your fellow gang members.

One thing we haven't seen in previous trailers is any mention of Red Dead Online. Like GTA Online, Red Dead Redemption 2 will have an MMO-esque mode. However, we don't know any details about it beyond the fact that it exists. If rumors are to be believed, Red Dead Online will be organized in a similar way to GTA Online, with players participating in different game modes like a PUBG-style Battle Royale mode and a take on Capture the Flag called Money Grab. Wednesday's new RDR2 trailer might provide some details.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will release for PS4 and Xbox One on Oct. 26. No PC release information has been revealed, and if Red Dead Redemption is any indicator, may never come.
