Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Launch Trailer, Screenshots Drop

Rockstar Games has dropped a launch trailer for their upcoming PC release of the critically-acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2. Fret not if you're worried about spoilers (though the game has indeed released quite a while ago): the trailer is only one minute long. There are some specific PC improvements to the title, such as support for up to 8K resolutions (good luck on that), support for higher framerates than on consoles, HDR, and support for non-standard monitor ratios.

The PC version of the game will also introduce a new photo mode for all you photography enthusiasts out there - even though it's in-game, it should still count. One of the things the PC version of the game won't ship with - sadly - is support for raytracing. There were some rumors running around the web regarding support for raytracing on the Rockstar Release due to some screenshots outed by NVIDIA that sported an RTX logo on the bottom right corner, but those served only as marketing for their latest 20-series graphics cards. No raytracing will be available in this game - and there is no reason to think it might.

I'm OK without Ray tracing and wouldn't buy a card or the game based on it.

I want performance numbers.

Wake me when it is less than $40 dollars. Preferably less than $30.

The trailer is only a minute long but isn't that a pretty major setpiece that's spoiled there?

I'm so happy this is happening. RDR1 is one of my favourite games of all time, but I always thought it was so held back by the limitations of the PS3 and 360. So the fact that it was never released on PC has always been a frustration for me.

I've read a lot of good things about RDR2, so for it to be released on PC so it can properly shine, well, I'm stoked that I'll get to experience it.

They're pretty much spoiling their own game with this trailer.

Nothing bad in it. Because of this trailer now people won't be buying it?

P.S. little hint. You can watch gameplay for this for past few years... *spoilers*.

Little hint - people that haven't played the game might want to avoid "gameplay" (more like walkthrough or let's play) to avoid potential spoilers. The moment when I discovered that I'm going to a bloody Island was a big surprise for me and to have it spoiled like that for people that haven't played the game is a bad move on R*'s part. Not to mention other quotes from Arthur that give away the outcome of major plot lines.
Nowhere am I suggesting that people won't buy the game because of this, just that it spoils the experience for new players.

Well, for me spoilers have never ruined experience :). Maybe for some folks it is that way what you mentioned.

Wait, did you just drop a spoiler while criticizing others for doing the same?!

Yeah, luckily I didn't spoil the fact that
Arthur dies in the end and you get to play epilogue as John.
Oops. But hey, it's all on youtube right?

I'll get back to that someday, once I've played through the game. In the meantime I'm gonna congratulate you on being the first addition to my ignore list.

Has anyone bought the game yet? It does look very pretty in the trailer.
So far I've seen it on Humble Bundle at $60 and the same price at Rockstar Games.
Anyone found any better deals?

No better deals were found by me. I went ahead and bought it already from Rockstar directly, because we already know about the game: It doesn’t suck! :laugh:

They'll likely put in sale in late 2021 or so.

These screenshots don't look any better than stuff I took on PS4 Pro...honestly, I am being genuine.

Then again...no one should care. If there is some perverse reason you couldn't play this game until now, do yourself a favor and play it. It's the new gold standard in open world games.

"It does look very pretty in the trailer."

You know what it is? A good game. Play good games, and stop graphics whoring.

That's it, don't reward the immense effort put into this game. Just leech off of the hundreds of thousands of hours put into this. Great way to promote hard work, parasite...

My perverse reason for being unable to play the game before is Rockstar didn't release it to PC before and I don't own a console.

Why not both? It's certainly possible. This game and Witcher 3 are a couple of good examples.

R-T-B is not even talking about he's going to pirate the game.

Hey, you know what was a good game? Metro: Exodus. Play good games and stop launcher whoring.
