Red Dead Redemption 2 Finally Comes to PC, Launch Date Announced

After almost a year since its initial release, Rockstar Games has finally announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC on Nov. 5, with preorders going live via the Rockstar Games Launcher at 11 a.m. ET on Oct. 9.  The company is specifically encouraging players to preorder the popular Western title through its own launcher by opening preorders two weeks earlier than other platforms, as well as offering a slew of bonuses.

Preordering RDR2 for PC through Rockstar's own store will net players two free games from the choices of Grand Theft Auto III, 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.

Preorders via the Rockstar Games Launcher are also accompanied by a few extras for players to use in the game's story mode, including an Outlaw Survival Kit, a War Horse, a treasure map, a cash bonus and 50 Gold Bars (for use in the game's online mode). Finally, players can also choose to upgrade to the Premium Edition for no cost or receive a $20 discount on the Special and Ultimate Editions.

Players who wish to purchase the game through other digital stores will have to wait until Oct. 23 to preorder, while those who choose to purchase the game through Steam will have to wait until sometime this December. However, players who preorder on other digital platforms will still receive a bonus of 25 Gold Bars.
