The Red Dead Redemption PC Port We Deserve

Rockstar hasn't done it, so PC modders might as well.

It's pretty much what you'd expect: modders are taking Grand Theft Auto V and transforming it into the world of Red Dead Redemption. White Team is the outfit responsible for the creation, which they say will get a beta release come our winter and a teaser trailer fairly shortly.

The timing is pretty good, considering Red Dead Redemption 2 is due out in the autumn. According to the announcement, it's a "story mode modification" based off the Xbox 360 version of the game.

Weighing in at 2GB, RDRV will largely focus on "graphical improvements" - although as more modders put their hands up to help out, who knows where the mod will end. The team is currently looking for scripters to help recreate some of RDR's iconic features, like the slow-mo Dead Eye Targeting, and mini-games like poker.

You can stay in touch with the mod's progress over at the GTA Forums. There's zero chance the full thing will be finished by the time RDR2 comes out, but the beta will at least be out before RDR2 gets a PC port.

    bloody legends. some one hand out a nobel peace prize to these glorious humans. oh, to be able to play red dead on pc. a dream come true.

    Figured it would be buried until I saw it was a single player mod.

    Smart decision

    Cease and desist letter in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

    :(

    I figured with RDR2 being a Prequel (assumption) they would use that as an excuse to finally release RDR on PC so people can play both ends of Marstons life.
    RDR2 hasn't been announced as a console exclusive yet right? I can't see Rockstar only giving them the first half of his life without an ending... but then again it is Rockstar.

    Yep this will be shut down just before release with a army of lawyers.....

    Er... OUR autumn or THEIR autumn?... I always get confused...
