Rockstar Games has given the PC gaming community something else to be happy about, with the announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2 and an official release date for the title. Originally released for PS4 and Xbox One back in 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC will launch worldwide on November 5th through Rockstar Games newly launched Games Launcher, Epic Games store and many more. A Steam release is due a few weeks after in December.
In case you’d forgotten, Red Redemption 2 takes place before the events of Red Dead Redemption 1 (yes that numbering scheme is weird) and sees you taking on the role of Arthur Morgan, a respected member of the Van Der Linde gang, led by Dutch. The story itself is packed full of many memorable moments, some good and some bad.
Red Dead Redemption 2 marks the first time an RDR game has ever been on PC. On The PC, RDR 2 brings a range of graphical and technical enhancements for a better experience as well as some new bounty missions, weapons, and gang hideouts.
Unlike the console versions which had to wait a while, the PC version comes with access to Red Dead Online from day one. RDR Online for PC will feature all previously released fixes and content so PC players can immediately begin enjoying the online segment.
