Since the port was first leaked by various rating systems for video games a while back, gamers on the PC side of the line have been eagerly awaiting next month, when Red Dead Redemption 2 finally drops for the PC. This port is something pretty much everyone knew was coming, but it took some time for the visually stunning version of the game to finally be confirmed by the developer.
While Red Dead Redemption 2 has been out for over a year at this point on console, this will be the first time the franchise has ever come to PC. If you somehow managed to avoid the spoilers for the console release up to this point, hats off to you, because you’re in for a shocking and satisfying ride about the slow and painful death of an era. The story is filled with tension and has some wonderful and dreadful turns, but in the best way. Red Dead Redemption 2 is also packed with tons of easter eggs, so exploration of every inch of the sprawling game world is very much advised. In short, if you’ve been waiting for the PC port, your wait will be worth it. Although to speed up that wait, you should probably start downloading it now.
Pre-loading has already begun, and you’re going to need it because this game and all of its patches are huge. It’s one of the few games in the current console generation to have been shipped on two discs, as the console version was around 100 GB in size on launch, and has only ballooned with subsequent patches.
Rockstar also just dropped another new trailer for the PC version, showing off some content spread throughout the story. You can see the trailer down below if you wish. Be forewarned though, there be some nasty spoilers down there.
The amazing Red Dead Redemption 2 finally drops for PC on November 5th, bringing the well-polished but still very gritty cowboy action to a new frontier. And it’s very likely to explode, selling millions of copies in that first week. Red Dead Redemption 2 had the largest opening weekend in the history of entertainment, making over $725 million in revenue in three days, and over 17 million copies shipped in total in two weeks, exceeding the lifetime sales of the first game, Red Dead Redemption.
