Red Dead Redemption 2 marks its impending PC release with a 4K 60FPS trailer

One of the things that most PC gamers tend to hold over the heads of their console gaming brethren is the fact that PCs can crank out more frames and higher resolutions than most gaming consoles can ever dream of. This is reflected in the newest Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer, which is broadcast in 4K resolution at a buttery 60FPS for maximum eye candy.

The PC version of the game further drums platform-specific tricks like increased draw distances, improved lighting and shadows, and new grass and fur textures to make the animals pelts you skin look that much softer probably. The presser further points at “horse scrotum” levels of detail like “the claw marks of a passing bear at the base of a tree in Big Valley and the individual spines on a cactus in New Austin, to a train passing on a far horizon and embers sparkling in the New Hanover night sky.”

You can get your eyes full of the high-res goodness below ahead of its impending November 5th PC release.

Let there be no doubt. PC graphics, there is no substitute.

This trailer reminded me I need to upgrade my i5 2.5k/970gtx

That trailer made me think, perhaps my Ryzen 3 and RX 570 AMD didn’t go far enough when I upgraded.

So after watching some hilarious videos in the sub-reddit (and 4.5* rating for RDR1) I gave up and made a pre-order for PC version – which I never do considering it’s an awful habit. That’s what good character graphics and animations (on top of sandbox gameplay) can do to an otherwise decent person…

Huh, ok. Wish it was co-op. The online version hasn’t gotten the warm reception like GTA5 had gotten. Stunning looking game though, just not interested in playing this solo when Cyberpunk is just six months away. Should be great for those who love a western frontier solo experience.

Nobody I know actually liked GTAO when it launched. With that game printing money for the past few years I imagine they have similar aspirations for RDO. It’s only been a little under a year.

If you do have hopes for the long term potential of RDO you should know that GTAO is filled with griefers on consoles and griefers plus hacking griefers on PC and Rockstar cannot seem to do anything about it. The only reliable defense seems to be using weird router/pc exploits to make the game think your internet connection is so bad that nobody should be connected to a game world with you.

Can’t wait to see what the Red Dead Online equivalent of spawning whales on players in the middle of the city or turning people into toilets is…
