Get your cowboy on with these Red Dead Redemption screens

Rockstar has put out some new Red Dead Redemption screens, showing John Marston doing all sorts of cowboy stuff.

We have ’em for you below, and each shows the many uses for ropin’ and lassoin’.

In addition to the firearms and traditional weapons featured in last week’s Weapons and Death video, the lasso requires skill to wield and should you wield it well, you can use it for all sorts of nifty things including subduing both man and beast.

You can use your rope to lasso some enemies and apply “frontier justice” by dragging him along behind your horse in the dirt, and use it to hogtie your Bounties before taking them to local law enforcement. Live Bounties equal more money than dead ones, and you’ll get on better with the Sheriff that way too.

Wild horses run free throughout the world of Red Dead Redemption, and if Marston finds himself without a horse, he can always lasso and break one to ride. Yeehaw.

Game’s out April 27 and 30 in the US and UK, respectively, for 360 and PS3.

GameStop has a pre-order program going on right now that nets you some cool threads. Check ’em out here.
