The day has finally arrived, with Rockstar announcing overnight that the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming November 5. Though its release will be a little staggered, with the game arriving on the newly launched Rockstar Games Launcher with a stack of bonuses in addition to the Epic Games Store first. The Steam release will arrive a month later in December.
As per our review of the game when it made its console debut last year, Red Dead 2 is a masterpiece. Which is why the PC version has been something people have been waiting quite some time to hear more about.
Although the announcement didn't come alongside a trailer, Rockstar has confirmed that the PC release will feature graphical and technical enhancements alongside new "Bounty Hunting Missions, Gang Hideouts, Weapons and more" at launch.
Without having to share revenue no doubt Take-Two and Rockstar want players to purchase the game via the Rockstar Games Launcer - with all pre-orders automatically upgraded to Premium Editions and the company offering the choice of two free Rockstar games from a selection of titles. These being: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Bully: Scholarship Edition, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has also been confirmed as a launch title for Google Stadia.
How successful do you guys think this PC release will be?
You'd assume it would be a top seller on Steam... it wont reach GTA V levels but no doubt will be huge if mods are supported
