Rockstar will not forget the PC players this time, and Arthur Morgan's adventures in Red Dead Redemption 2 will even make the trip much faster than expected. Rockstar has announced the release of this 2018 mastodon on November 5th on a wide selection of online stores, including their own.

System Requirements

Revealed at the same time as the game pre-order, the minimum and recommended specs for Red Dead Redemption 2 are much more modest than one might have expected, especially when compared to other titles like COD: Modern Warfare and Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.

There will be mods

When you think of Rockstar on PC, you think of mods: with the Elder Scrolls, it's probably one of the most active modding communities in the small world of video games. So let's not kid ourselves, it will necessarily start with nude mods and character replacements in order to play a Pokémon trainer in the middle of the far west, but over time, it could well become a gold mine of additional content, as it has been the case on all GTA games.
