If you’re a PC-exclusive gamer, you probably haven’t had a chance to yee-haw on horseback with your own copy of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Fortunately, the wait is over so you can experience the trials and tribulations of good-guy-slash-outlaw, Arthur Morgan, for yourself.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was released on 26 October 2018 for PlayStation and Xbox users but PC players had to sit tight. That time has now arrived so you’ll be able to gallivant with fellow crims across the great fields, woods and swamps of middle America.

Red Dead Redemption 2, One Year Later

Red Dead Redemption 2 launched a year ago today, on October 26 2018. It’s been a busy year for the game and developer Rockstar. The company has faced criticisms over crunch, the main game eventually released to great reviews, Red Dead Online launched to less great reviews, then got updated more and more, fans walked around with soup and a country-trap hybrid hit song used the game in a music video. Here’s (almost) everything that has happened in the last year since RDR2 released.

There are no physical copies available so you’ll have to bite the bullet and prepare your broadband data for a digital copy from a limited range of stockists.

While the cheapest available price right now is via Green Man Gaming for $82.75, you’ll get an additional game for free, so long as you buy through the Rockstar Games Social Club. The bonus game choices include Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, Bully: Scholarship Edition or Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. If you’ve never played any of those iconic titles, it’s not a bad idea to tack it onto your RDR 2 purchase for the standard retail price.

The title will also be coming to Steam in Decemeber.

Happy yee-hawing, outlaws.

  • No, the wait is not yet over.

    Being the Red Dead Redemption tragic that I am, I waited up till the merry hour of 12am this morning, yet the ‘pre load ready’ button had not yet changed to ‘play’ in my Rockstar Launcher.

    Research ensued, and low and behold, I found through unofficial channels that the game has a worldwide concurrent release time. That time just happens to be 12am on the 6th for those of similar geographical coordinates as myself.

    And I said to myself, ‘Assholes’, and went to sleep in a quiet rage.

    • Rookie mistake to think it would unlock at that time for us, cowpoke.

      You’ll just have to stay up again tonight!

      • There’s no consistency with this shit I tell ya. I’m a simple man who believes the 5th means the 5th, not the 6th just because I’m not American. I have a right mind to not stay up tonight in protest.

    • Despite the complete lack of a Timezone on the release info on their website. It’s annoying. At least it’s still the 5th in Perth, but I’m still 15 minutes away from playing.

  • I got mine on the Rockstar launcher store, it was $89.99 but got a free upgrade to the special edition and 2 free games so it wasn’t a bad deal all round.

    All versions will launch Rockstars launcher anyway.

      • I honestly can’t remember, it was an option on the checkout page, the deluxe edition was the price of the special edition. it may have been an early “please use our launcher” special before it came available to preorder on Epic, GMG etc….

  • As an aside – man new release PC games aren’t that cheap anymore. I remember I picked up RDR2 on Xbox for $69 on release, but the PC copies are all hovering around that $90 mark.

    • A few reasons why this is the case:
      -Digital purchases generally cost more than their physical counterparts (if memory serves me correctly the digital ps4 version was similarly priced)
      -The benefits of having the game on a flexible platform which can be pushed to it’s limit
      – If a business can capitalise on consumer demand, how the fuck can you blame them for doing so
