Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on Windows PCs. As noted in Rockstar’s announcement, this is the first Red Dead Redemption game to be available on the PC, and brings many enhancements that aren’t possible with gaming consoles.
Players will be able to take advantage of full support for 4K Ultra HD graphics and 60 FPS refresh rate, along with enhanced graphics textures to give the game a much more realistic depth. By contrast, the game only supports 30 FPS gameplay on Xbox One systems, although players on the Xbox One X will benefit from 4K Ultra HD support. The PC version of the game also sports increased draw distances, enhanced illumination for better day/night lighting, and support for both widescreen and multi-monitor setups.
In addition to graphical enhancements, the PC version of the game also comes with new features for Story Mode. These additions include new missions, maps, and items, including:
- 3 New Bounty Hunter Missions: Apprehend a trio of wanted fugitives – thief Herman Zizendorf, Ex-Confederate Officer Camille de Millemont and gang leader Bart Cavanaugh.
- 2 New Gang Hideouts: Take on the deadly Del Lobos gang at Gaptooth Breach and Solomon’s Folly.
- 2 New Treasure Maps: Hunt for treasures across the new Landmarks of Riches and The Elemental Trail maps for Gold Bars and other rewards.
- New “To The Ends of The Earth” Mission
- A host of new Weapons, Horses and Trinkets to collect.
If you’re interested in the game, it’s now available starting at $59.99 from the Rockstar Games Launcher as well as the Epic Games Store. To those who prefer the Steam platform, Rockstar is also releasing the game on the platform before the end of the year.
