That's right, Red Dead Redemption 2 PC will be available to pre-order on the Rockstar Games Launcher. This will include a variety of bonuses, including the Outlaw Survival Kit, War Horse, Treasure Map and Cash Bonus for Story Mode, as well as 50 Gold Bars for Red Dead Online.
Rockstar will begin Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-purchases on its Rockstar Games Launcher on October 9 at 8 a.m. PT until October 22. Red Dead Online is also coming to PC, giving players free access to partner up with their pals and have their own rootin tootin adventures in the wild west.
Not everybody is keen on proprietary launchers, so Rockstar is sweetening the deal. It'll be available through the Rockstar Launcher, Epic Games Store and other digital platforms, with a Steam version arriving in December.
Anyone who hasn't downloaded the Rockstar Games Launcher by October 8 will receive a free copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Instead, Rockstar is hoping to sway you into buying on its own platform by offering a limited time game bundle with all pre-orders. Choices on offer are GTA III, GTA: Vice City, GTA: San Andreas, Bully: Scholarship Edition, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, and Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition.
An article on the Rockstar Newswire states that the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version will finally be coming to computers everywhere on November 5, 2019.
Even if you have already played the console version of RDR2, the PC version might be worth grabbing anyway. Pre-orders on the Rockstar launcher open on October 9.
The game will include a number of graphical enhancements for PC, and will feature new single player content, including bounty hunting missions and gang hideouts to uncover. Other select retailers will take orders beginning October 23.
Pre-purchases on the Rockstar Games Launcher will also grant you a free upgrade to the Premium Edition of the game. The title will not be available to purchase on Valve's Steam platform, but it will be available on a recently release storefront.
