Keeping the peace ain’t easy in Red Dead Redemption

Between trigger-happy marshals, oafish deputies and contemptuous agents; upholding the law in Rockstar’s upcoming open-world Western don’t exactly look like it’s going to be all sugar and rainbows. This latest trailer for Red Dead Redemption illustrates pretty much all the qualifications you need to ‘officially’ deal with any outlaws or miscreants that may cross your path. So long as you can kick people in the head, shoot folks in the face and make offhand remarks, you’ll do just dandy.

Red Dead Redemption is due for release in late April for the PS3 and Xbox 360, expect to see a whole lot more by way of trailers and screenshots until then.
