Rockstar Games finally confirmed that “Red Dead Redemption 2” is coming to PC on November 5th. The game is releasing with special bonuses available to players who pre-purchase through the Rockstar Games Launcher starting on October 9th, but it’s not an exclusive. The company also reminded players that they can still download the Rockstar Games Launcher by October 8th to get “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” for free. “Red Dead Redemption 2” for PC includes a range of graphical and technical enhancements for increased immersion along with new Bounty Hunting Missions, Gang Hideouts, Weapons, and more.
The developers also announced that the PC version also includes free access to the shared living world of “Red Dead Online.” This will include all previously released improvements and the latest content updates for the complete online experience, including Frontier Pursuits and the specialist Roles of Bounty Hunter, Trader, and Collector, for players to progress through and earn unique rewards.
The pre-purchases for “Red Dead Redemption 2” for PC begin on October 9th exclusively on the Rockstar Games Launcher through October 22nd, with a limited time offer during this period of two free Rockstar Games PC titles from the following: Grand Theft Auto 3; Grand Theft Auto: Vice City; Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas; Bully: Scholarship Edition; L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition; and Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition. Pre-purchases made on the Rockstar Games Launcher also include free upgrades to the Premium Editions of “Red Dead Redemption 2,” with both the Special Edition and Ultimate Edition discounted by $20 each. Further pre-purchase bonuses via the Rockstar Games Launcher include: Outlaw Survival Kit for Story Mode; War Horse for Story Mode; Treasure Map for Story Mode; Cash Bonus for Story Mode; and 50 Gold Bars for Red Dead Online.
“Red Dead Redemption 2” for PC will also be available to pre-order at the Epic Games Store, Greenman Gaming, the Humble Store, GameStop, and additional digital retailers starting October 23rd with a pre-order bonus of 25 Gold Bars for Red Dead Online. The PC option will also be available to purchase on Steam this December.
With over $725 million in worldwide retail sell-through during its first three days, “Red Dead Redemption 2” is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Rockstar Games’ previously released title, “Grand Theft Auto V,” which achieved over $1 billion in retail sell-through in three days.
