Posted by | News, PC | No Comments

Rockstar Games announced that last year’s high-profile sequel Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC on November 5. Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming first to Rockstar’s own Rockstar Launcher, as well as the Epic Games Store before releasing on Steam a month later in December.

Red Dead Redemption 2 presents a gorgeous open world western, and the PC version goes even further with new graphical enhancements that increase draw distance, provide higher quality lightning, and improved textures. The PC version will also offer HDR and 4K support, as well as multi-monitor and widescreen setups.

These enhancements come with a beefy cost. Here are the recommended PC specs for Red Dead Redemption 2:

  • OS:  Windows 10
  • Processor:  Intel Core i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
  • Memory:  12GB
  • Graphics Card:  Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB
  • HDD Space:  150GB

The PC version also adds new story content, including three new bounty hunter missions, two new gang hideouts, two new treasure maps, and several new weapons, horses, and trinkets.

Pre-orders are available now. If you pre-order before October 22 (via Rockstar Launcher) you will also receive a free upgrade to Special or Ultimate Edition, several digital goodies like Gold Bars for Red Dead Online, and two free Rockstar Games titles from the following list:

  • Grand Theft Auto 3
  • 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

Red Dead Redemption 2 released in fall 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s coming November 5 on PC (Rockstar Launcher, Epic Games Store) and on Steam in December. It’s rated M for Mature.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Delayed to Spring 2018

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

There are several high-profile game publishers and developers who can afford to take as much time as they need to release their next tent-pole title. Rockstar Games is definitely one of them. This week they announced that the extremely highly anticipated open-world action-adventure sequel Red Dead Redemption 2 will be arriving Spring 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was originally teased, then announced late last year with a fall 2017 release date. But anyone familiar with the scope of Rockstar’s titles, such as Grand Theft Auto, knew that was a pipe dream.

“We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes,” states the press release. “But we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready. We are really excited to bring you more details about the game this summer.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be Rockstar Games’ first title to be built entirely within the current generation of hardware.

The first game (a pseudo-sequel to 2004’s Red Dead Revolver) launched in 2010 to critical and commercial acclaim. It is consistently ranked as one of the greatest video games of all time. It sold millions, though a drop in the bucket compared to big brother GTA. It was never remastered nor ported to PC.

Rockstar’s most recent game, Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a best seller. It originally launched in 2013 on the last generation of consoles. It launched the following year for PS4 and Xbox One, then came to PC in 2015.

To help swallow the pill of the delay, Rockstar released several gorgeous screenshots. You can see them below and find more on the main website.

Like all of Rockstar Games’ titles, Red Dead Redemption 2 will undoubtedly be rated M for Mature. The sequel should arrive Spring 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One, with additional details this summer.
