Rockstar revealed today that it's bringing Red Dead Redemption 2 to PC, and those who were holding out for such an announcement luckily don't have much longer to wait, as the PC version will be out next month.
Yes, all the rumors and clues we heard about were for real.
PC players had previously waited five months between the launch of Rockstar's "Grand Theft Auto V" on PS4 and XBO and its eventual release on PC, or a year and a half after its original debut on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
According to Rockstar, the PC version will feature "a range of graphical and technical enhancements for increased immersion along with new Bounty Hunting Missions, Gang Hideouts, Weapons and more".
I'm also excited at the prospect of mods.
Rockstar Games has officially announced Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC.
Rockstar will also hand out in-game items to those who pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2 through its launcher, including the Outlaw Survival Kit, War Horse, Treasure Map, and Cash Bonus (all of which are for story mode), along with 50 Gold Bars for use in Red Dead Online. One store seems to be missing right? It will be available on the Epic Games Store, Humble Store, Greenman Gaming, GameStop, as well as other digital retailers. It will also be available on Stadia as a launch title sometime in November.
Rockstar is incentivising pre-orders by allowing those who do to pick two free games from its back catalogue from Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Bully: Scholarship Edition, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, and Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition.
Additionally, if customers download the launcher by October 8, they can get GTA: San Andreas for free, potentially extending the free game offering to three titles. Better get sharpening those Dead Eye skills.
An article on the Rockstar Newswire states that the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version will finally be coming to computers everywhere on November 5, 2019. It'd be the ideal excuse.
