Red Dead Redemption 2 is getting a PC release, Rockstar Games announced today in a blog post. The game will be available exclusively via the publisher’s dedicated launcher later this fall, Nov. 5.
A PC release for Red Dead Redemption 2 has been hotly requested by fans since the game’s launch, but it’s been far from a sure thing — after all, the original game never saw one. Now we can end the speculation and look forward to what’s described as an enhanced version of the game.
“Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC features a range of graphical and technical enhancements for increased immersion along with new Bounty Hunting Missions, Gang Hideouts, Weapons and more.”
Red Dead Online will also be part of the package, bang up to date with all the additions since its launch, such as the recent and excellent Frontier Pursuits. There’s no word on cross-play yet.
Pre-orders are already live, and special bonus content is available for those that purchase the game before Oct. 8, 11 AM EST. The bonus content includes:
- 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
In addition to the free game collection, you’ll essentially be getting the content included with the game’s premium editions if you pre-order. This includes:
- Outlaw Survival Kit for Story Mode
- War Horse for Story Mode
- Treasure Map for Story Mode
- Cash Bonus for Story Mode
- 50 Gold Bars for Red Dead Online
In addition to the game’s PC release, Rockstar also confirms it’s heading to Google Stadia on the same date.
