The third trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 dropped Wednesday, teasing Rockstar Games’ upcoming Wild West sequel to the best-selling Red Dead Redemption. Check it out in all its cowboy-boot-shaking glory below.

Red Dead Redemption 2 releases Oct. 28, 2018, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Rockstar has yet to confirm if a PC version is in the works, but don’t hold your breath, as the company has historically released PC versions of its games months after their console releases. In the case of the first Red Dead Redemption, it never came to PC.

If you missed the story trailer that released back in September of 2017, check it out below.

You’ll play as Arthur Morgan, a member of Dutch’s gang, the group that Red Dead Redemption protagonist John Marston was a former member of and was compelled by the government to track down. Everything we’ve seen thus far implies a heavy focus on the gang’s heyday, also implying that Rockstar will have a heavy focus on online multiplayer gameplay, just like Grand Theft Auto Online. Multiplayer modes include Money Grab, pitting two teams to nab a stash of gold in the middle of a map and return it to their base. Revive and Survive forces teammates to revive one another in a longer deathmatch. A battle royale mode will also be available—because those are all the rage these days.
