Red Dead Redemption 2 arrives on PC on November 5

A week ago we found out that Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC was just around the corner, and in the end, we were not wrong. After several months of leaks, rumors and assessments and personal analysis we can confirm, finally, that the release of this version will take place on November 5.

Rockstar has confirmed that we can make the reservation of Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC from October 9 and that if we do it through its launcher we will receive free classic games, improvements to premium editions and much more.

What news will bring Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC?

As you could imagine we will enjoy graphic and technical improvements that will make the gaming experience more immersive and more realistic. Recreating the Old West was a challenge for Rockstar, and thanks to the power offered by the PC they have been able to make it look better than ever.

In addition to the improvements at the graphic and technical level, they have confirmed that there will be news at the playable level. There is the talk of new missions of bounty hunters and assaults on dens and weapons, among other things that, we imagine, will be carried out in the next few days.

How could it be otherwise Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC will allow us to enjoy Red Dead Online for free, the multiplayer mode of this installment, which comes with all the improvements and updates that Rockstar has been implementing in the console version?

This means, in summary, that we will have available from the first moment all the contents that have reached the console version, including the trades of the West and the specialized roles of bounty hunters, merchants, and collectors.

When will it be available and what advantages will I have if I book through Rockstar Games Launcher?

It will be available for reservation from October 9 at 5:00 p.m. (Spanish time) through Rockstar Games Launcher, an exclusive that will remain until October 22. If we get with him before that date we can take, as a reward, two of the following games:

  • Grand Theft Auto III
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
  • Bully: Scholarship Edition
  • LA Noire: The Complete Edition
  • Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition

We must also take into account that reservations through Rockstar Games Launcher will include free improvements in the premium editions of Red Dead Redemption 2, as well as discounts of 20 euros in the Special Edition and the Ultimate Edition.

When booking through the Rockstar platform we will also take several gifts that we detail below:

  • Outlaw Survival Kit for Story Mode.
  • Warhorse for Story Mode.
  • Treasure map for Story Mode.
  • Money for Story Mode.
  • 50 gold bars for Red Dead Online.

From October 23, we can buy Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC in the Epic Games Store, in Green Man Gaming, in Humble Bundle, and in other digital distributors. It will not reach Steam until December, which confirms a small temporary exclusive on other platforms.
