Alleged footage of Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC version leaks onto the web

Red Dead Redemption 2 has been one of the biggest game releases of 2018, making the game’s console exclusivity a sticking point for PC gamers. With GTX V remaining one of Steam’s most popular games, it seems to be only a matter of time before Red Dead Redemption 2 makes it to PC, as simply put it will be a great opportunity for Rockstar and 2K games to monetise their game.  

Alleged footage of Red Ded Redemption 2’s PC version has leaked onto the web, showcasing the game’s graphical settings and a resolution change from 1080p to 1440p. Sadly, the video showcases little gameplay, and the game’s lack of a “quit” option adds extra doubt to proceedings. This video could be real, but it has many of the hallmarks of a fake, such as a lack of real gameplay. In-game menus can be faked. 

 

In the video above, Red Dead Redemption 2 is shown to feature similar graphical options to GTA V, including options for FXAA, Distance Scaling and the ability to activate a colour blindness mode. It appears as if the game lacks temporal anti-aliasing, another factor that makes the video appear fake, as TAA is used heavily by the game’s console versions.
