It’s official, Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC!

Rockstar Games has officially announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC on November 5th, and on Google’s Stadia platform on launch day. 

On PC, Red Dead Redemption 2 will ship with enhanced visuals, new bounty hunting missions, gang hideouts, weapons and other content. Red Dead Online will also feature the complete Red Dead Online experience on launch day, making this release just as feature-rich as today’s console versions. 

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available on Rockstar’s game launcher, the Epic Games Store and Steam. Pre-orders for Red Dead Redemption 2 will start on October 9th on the Rockstar Game Launcher, October 23rd on Epic Games store, Greenman Gaming, the Humble Store, GameStop and later on Steam. On Steam, Red Dead Redemption 2 will release sometime in December, after the game’s Rockstar Games Store and Epic Games Store launches. 

Pre-purchases on Rockstar’s launcher will also give PC gamers free copies of two older Rockstar Games, which can be selected from the following list;

– Grand Theft Auto III
– Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
– Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
– Bully: Scholarship Edition
– L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition
– Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition

Pre-orders from Rockstar’s store also grant PC gamers access to 50 gold bars in Red Dead Online, Bonis cash in story mode, a treasure map in story mode, a War Horse in Story more and an Outlaw Survival Kit in Story mode. The Rockstar Games Launcher version also includes “upgrades to the Premium Editions of Red Dead Redemption 2″. 

Basically, Rockstar wants gamers to purchase Red Dead Redemption 2 off their storefront. Buying the game from another store will result in PC gamers getting a lesser version of the game. Yes, you can wait for the Steam release, but will the wait be worth it if the Rockstar Games version has more content?

At this time, PC screenshots, system requirements and other details are unknown. Expect OC3D to report on these details when they are released.
