It’s hard to deny that 2018 had one of the best western and open-world games of this generation. Red Dead Redemption way back in 2010 redefined western games and offered both addictive gameplay and a rich narrative. It was brilliant, yet due to it being released exclusively for the Xbox and PlayStation, it meant that only console players could experience it. Last year it looked like the same thing was going to happen to its sequel.
A PC port was always rumored to be just around the corner, yet there was no sight of it. Multiple updates, an Online mode, and more upcoming DLC saw more attention than a port. Luckily, the “PC Master Race” will finally have a chance to get their hands on Red Dead Redemption 2 next month. Rockstar Studios announced via Twitter that RDR2 will be available on PC on November 5th.
Arthur Morgan’s adventure will come with all the current updates, as well as some new treats. New bounty hunting missions, weapons, hideouts, and plenty more, as well as a graphical update for both the singleplayer and online mode. On top of that, players who pre-order the game through the Rockstars Games Launcher, get two additional games. Players are free to choose between GTA 3, GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, Bully: Scholarship Edition, LA Noire, and Max Payne 3.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is primarily purchased through the Rockstars Games Launcher. As of the end of October, RDR2 will be available through the Epic Games Store, Humble Store, GameStop and more. Sadly Steam users will have to wait until December for the game to be available on the platform. PC players have a lot to look forward to in the future. With a big step like this, and the current state of Playstation Now, who knows. Maybe we could even see the original Red Dead Redemption get a PC port in the upcoming years.
