Red Dead Redemption Gameplay Trailer: Lovely Stuff

Rockstar San Diego has given a splendid first real look at its Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 open-world western Red Dead Redemption in the first of a new gameplay trailer series.

"One of the goals when designing the game was to create a seamless blend of action and discovery where things can happen unexpectedly at any time," says a knowing narrator, introducing features from lassoing criminals, five-finger fillet and treasure-hunting to its "Dead-eye targeting system" and "hundreds of unique characters."

Red Dead Redemption arrives for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 27, 2010.
