Red Dead Redemption 2 PC System Requirements

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC. Today we will take a look at the System Requirements.

Rockstar Games is one of the few companies that players trust. This trust does not come from no microtransactions or monetization. Rockstar Games does use both microtransactions and monetization in their games. However, when Rockstar Games announces a game, we all know it will be interesting to play. Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA Series are an example of that. These games have a very hardcore player base. Also, they both have a rich story and an online version.

Red Dead Redemption is an icon. The series has been praised for its amazing gameplay for years. First, we have seen the original first Red Dead Revolver coming from the creators of Grand Theft Auto or commonly known as GTA. Rockstar Games is one of the best companies in the gaming world and there’s a reason for this. Their games are always extremely detailed with full of things to do. Also, great stories with huge open worlds mixed very well.

As we have said before “Red Dead” series actually started in 2004 with Red Dead Revolver. Then in 2010, we have seen Red Dead Redemption; the game was only released for consoles. Both games did considerably well. However, after that, we did not hear anything from Rockstar Games for nearly eight years. But last year we have seen another addition to the series, “Red Dead Redemption 2”. RDR 2 got very good scores from critiques. The gameplay was intense and rich.
