Red Dead Redemption 2 will be coming to PC in November, a year after its initial launch the game will be ported for PC. Where this doesn't seem like big news for those who have already played the game, it will come with an entire community dedicated to creating mods for the game. Pre-orders will be available on the Rockstar Games Launcher with bonuses for purchasing.

Similar to GTA 5, the game really came into its own once the online mode released and has continued to live through a vibrant community creating mods.

Release Date

The PC version will release on the 5th November 2019.

Where Can I Pre-Order It From?

Players can pre-order the game on the Rockstar Games Launcher starting October 9th. For those that download the launcher by the 8th October, they will receive a free copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Pre-purchases for Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC begin at 11AM ET 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 III
  • 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

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
  • 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. Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC will also be available to purchase on Steam this December.

What's Different About The PC Version?

Alongside a set of graphical and technical enhancements, there will be new Bount Hunting Missions, Gang Hideouts, Weapons and more.

Mods will be available on the PC version and it has already been announced that FiveM - a popular mod for GTA V that allows you to set up your own custom multiplayer servers - have confirmed they will make their presence known with RedM. FiveM (and RedM for that matter) is essentially a suite of tools that lets you fully tailor and tweak the gameplay of your own dedicated server, to make for example a role-play server (complete with some dubious cowboy accents in the case of RDR2, no doubt). They are expecting the mod to be available a month after launch.
