Oh, thank goodness. At long last, Red Dead Redemption 2 has been announced to be arriving on PC November 5th, with pre-purchase available on the Rockstar game launcher starting on October 9th. And yes, cowpokes, that also means Red Dead Online will be joining our lineup of cowboy-themed games available for wild and rowdy yee-haws. Pre-purchasing through non-Rockstar outlets will even give you a bonus of 25 gold bars in RDO, with the Epic Store, Humble, and GameStop specifically cited as digital retailers.
Meanwhile, pre-ordering through the official storefront allows you to pick up two “classic” Rockstar titles (specifically any of the PS2-era Grand Theft Auto series, Max Payne 3, LA Noire, or Bully) for free. You also get a variety of bonus gewgaws for both the single-player mode and the online option. So saddle up and get ready to mosey on, it’ll be here in just over a month. It feels like this took forever, huh?
