No word yet on whether it was native 4K or checkerboard.

Rockstar Games dropped the first gameplay trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 with the first real look at what Rockstar's outlaw sim looks like running naturally. We also know that today's new footage was captured using the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Today's Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer was captured entirely from in-game footage on the PlayStation 4 Pro and running in 4K. Rockstar confirmed to USgamer as well published the news on the official US PlayStation blog.

So, today's gorgeous footage can be achievable on the PS4 Pro. No word yet on what Red Dead Redemption 2 will look like on the Xbox One or the Xbox One X, but I imagine that those details will be revealed later.

The new Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer released today showed off several new gameplay details, most important of which is how Red Dead Redemption 2 seems to center around the daily life of Van der Linde's criminal gang.
