Exciting news.  This game played like arse on PS4, so I hope they tighten the controls a LOT for the pc version.  The first RDR is one of my all time favorite games so it'd be an understatement to say I'm anticipating a PC release for the new game, with all the benefits that came with the GTAV pc release.

Did they ever make online worthwhile?  Or is it still a terrible grindfest with autoaim always on?

The advertising I saw was very misleading. It said coming to PC on a certain date. But what it meant was pre-order available on a certain date. At least that is what a mate said. I have never played the games. I hear they are very good.

Available for pre order now from Rockstar Game Launcher platform.......(2) free games come with it from their catalog.  Seems like two editions available, "special" which is $59.99 (regularly $79.99, seems like an upgrade of standard) and "ultimate" for which is $79.99 (regular $99.99).

Very little resistance for me, no doubt I will cave within the week....

Yowzer, these newer games are starting to test system requirements:)  This recommended is at 12GB of RAM, not as bad as Jedi at 32GB but some folks might struggle with that.

But more eye-catching is the 150GB storage needed!  I really hope the download is big time compressed, otherwise that is like 15+ hours on my crappy internet connection.

Minimum specifications:

OS: Windows 7 - Service Pack 1 (6.1.7601)
Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K / AMD FX-6300
Memory: 8GB
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB HDD
Space: 150GB
Sound Card: DirectX compatible

Recommended specifications:

OS: Windows 10 - April 2018 Update (v1803)
Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Memory: 12GB
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB HDD Space: 150GB
Sound Card: DirectX compatible

Was just going to post these, the cpu/gpu and ram requirements are bad at all, 150 GB HDD space is pretty beastly though. I think the new Call of Duty is around 170 GB.

Insane HDD requirement.  But yeah, I'm likely going to buy this game a second time.

Guess it's to Gamestop for a trade in of my PS4 version for chump change. 

I'm probably going to go all in and finally dig into the online portion.

Donít think that too far off from the ps4 requirements at this point, especially with all the patches.

I totally agree with your thinking on this!


I had RDR2 for PS4 and returned it for store credit after a few months.  My reason for trading the game in for store credit are as follows:

1. The main character is lifeless.  I just couldn't find a reason to like him they way I liked John Marston in the first game.
2. Sensory overload and I mean sensory overload.  There is a ton of side quests, mini-games, meta-games, and odds and ends to do that my old brain couldn't handle it.  I barely got through the first chapter of the story because there are just too many shiny objects that whiz by you causing you to lose focus.  I just don't have the patience anymore I'm afraid.
3. The overall story is kind of lame.  Doesn't really connect with the events that happened in the first game and for me that dog don't hunt.
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

This. This times 100! I barely made it out of the first chapter too and once I did, I never went back.
