We interrupt this week’s raging dumpster fire to point you to last fall’s dumpster fire! Yes, Rockstar Games has officially opened preorders for the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 and therefore Red Dead Online on the Rockstar Games Launcher.
“Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC takes full advantage of the power of the PC to bring every corner of this massive, rich and detailed world to life from the windswept snowy peaks of the Grizzly Mountains to the dusty roads of Lemoyne; from the mud-spattered storefronts of Valentine to the cobbled streets of St Denis. New graphical and technical enhancements for deeper immersion include increased draw distances for better navigation; higher quality global illumination and ambient occlusion for improved day and night lighting; higher quality snow trails, improved reflections and deeper, higher resolution shadows at all distances; tessellated tree textures and improved grass and fur textures for added realism in every plant and animal.”
As we previously noted, players who pick up the game in the Rockstar Games Launcher will be treated to a bunch of freebies and upgrades, though you can also just wait for October 23rd to buy it from Epic Games store, Greenman Gaming, the Humble Store, GameStop, or hunker down for the Steam release in December. The launch itself is November 5th.
