UPDATE 2 - 24th Oct 2018: Rockstar is working to take down Red Dead Redemption 2 video leaks on YouTube.
A raft of videos that emerged today, including the one Eurogamer reported on this morning, are now unavailable on YouTube.
UPDATE 1 - 24th Oct 2018: Red Dead Redemption 2 has suffered another leak - this time apparently from Russia.
The video below is four minutes and 40 seconds of gameplay footage of Rockstar's cowboy game, showing Arthur Morgan shooting and punching a whole load of people in a town. Of note: the footage shows the game's first-person mode.
The quality of the video is poor (it looks like it was a stream filmed using a potato!), but it gives us the longest stretch of uncut gameplay footage seen to date.
Red Dead Redemption 2 comes out on 26th October, so the game will be in plenty of people's hands already. Expect more leaks in the coming days.
ORIGINAL STORY 22nd Oct 2018: Four days before Red Dead Redemption 2 is due to launch officially, its first gameplay leak has hit the internet.
The clip, which isn't particularly illuminating, shows playable character Arthur Morgan rock up to a campsite, pat his horse, get down then blow a few bad guys away.
There's a lot here fans of Red Dead Redemption will recognise, including the mini-map, the wanted system and the radial menu for weapons.
New is the slow motion kill cam, horse items and Premium Cigarette Packs, which you can obtain for a collectible cigarette card.
Of note: there are icons around the mini-map, and you can press L2 to "Lawman".
This short clip is the first gameplay leak Red Dead Redemption 2 has suffered, which comes as something of a surprise given how close we are to the launch of the game and the fact copies of it are already in the hands of players.
Not long now!
