    Rockstar made a decent Western sandbox for me to play in and populated it with fleshed out characters and a decent narrative.

    So i’m actually quite looking forward to this.

    It’s pretty much just rejigged cutscenes from the New Austin part of the game, it’s pretty disappointing really so I gave up about halfway through. Perhaps it has more later but I couldn’t be arsed to keep watching.

    It’s just rejigged cutscenes from the game. If you’ve played the game, you’ve seen it all already.

    Chronicles the events of what happened before RDR? Not according to R* is isnt, they said that its just a film using assets from the game. It isnt a prequel.

    So is it with different scenes and voices or just cutscenes copied and pasted in a different order?

    Its scenes from the games cutscenes in story mode like a promo trailer for rdr. So if uve played the first few missions itll just show those cutscenes and mix them up in order also different camera angles as well.
