All of us noticed it coming, and now it’s taking place: Pink Useless Redemption 2 is lastly coming to PC in early November — however Steam customers are going to have to attend an additional month.
Sure, all of the rumors and clues we heard about had been for actual. Our choose for the perfect story recreation of 2018 is formally doing what its predecessor couldn’t and making the leap to PC. It’s a boon for my non-console-owning brothers and sisters, and now we all know why Rockstar has its personal PC launcher.

Single-player mode will include new bounties, gang hideouts, and weapons, whereas pre-order bonuses embrace a brand new horse and numerous in-game goodies. I additionally suspect PC gamers could have dozens of mods able to hit the bottom working inside hours of official launch.
As anticipated, it’s not simply the bottom recreation that’s coming to PC, but additionally Pink Useless On-line. The burgeoning neighborhood of Wild West MMO gamers, and the variety of PC-based gamers who may very well be becoming a member of in, are in all probability a much bigger incentive than the bottom recreation by itself. Customers who pre-order through the Rockstar Launcher will even get 50 gold bars as a bonus.
Nevertheless, in the event you’re one of many Steam trustworthy, you might be barely dissatisfied, as that retailer is as soon as once more getting the shaft. In keeping with Rockstar, RDR2 will probably be out there to pre-order from the Epic Retailer, Humble, Greenman Gaming, GameStop, and “different digital retailers” beginning October 23. It’ll even be a launch title for Google’s Stadia, the Founder’s Version of which is ready to return out in November. Nevertheless, Valve’s platform received’t be getting the sport till December.
Rockstar is sweetening the pot by providing two free video games for anybody who pre-orders RDR2 on the Rockstar Video games Launcher by October 22. You’ve gotten your choose of GTAs III, San Andreas, and Vice Metropolis, L.A. Noire, Bully, or Max Payne 3. Contemplating you’ll be able to already get a free copy of San Andreas by downloading the launcher inside the subsequent few days, you may doubtlessly be getting a lot of traditional, old-school Rockstar goodness.
I’m actually shocked Rockstar’s not bringing the primary Pink Useless onto the Rockstar PC Launcher, piggyback on the sequel. It’d be the proper excuse. We’ve contacted the corporate to see if there’s an opportunity that would occur.
RDR2 releases on PC on November 5. Pre-orders on the Rockstar launcher open on October 9.
