America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.
After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.
From the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 is an epic tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age.
PC is the best place to play last year’s best game. It’s massive yet loses no focus, epic on every level, and combines Rockstar’s penchant for immense detail with a surprising amount of heart.
Once upon a time people would overuse the word “epic”, but it’s a phrase truly befitting of Rockstar’s brilliant Red Dead Redemption 2.
My biggest warning to anyone considering purchasing RDR2 on PC is that you need to have patience when you set it up. Take the time to go through each graphics option, compare your performance on Vulkan vs. DirectX 12, and tailor the game to your specs. Once you have the game tuned, there’s no better way to experience it than on PC.
It’s not perfect, but the PC version of one of the greatest games of the generation is definitely a sight to behold. Even with some room for improvement, PC players will enjoy making the most of their hardware with Rockstar’s latest title.
This monumentally huge game, full of unprecedented detail and atmosphere of the Wild West, simply has no equal. Its PC port isn’t perfect by any means, especially regarding the mouse and keyboard controls and the clunky interface.
An epic masterpiece of modern gaming, whose PC launch is unfortunately marred by potentially serious technical issues.
The PC release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is without a doubt visually breathtaking to behold, but a wide range of issues at launch sour the experience of revisiting Rockstar’s captivating Western.
