Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC will include new content, with Rockstar offering plenty of pre-order bonuses.

Remember all those rumors about Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC? Well, it turns out they were true. Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on PC November 5.

Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC will bring with it a bundle of improvements, such as new graphics enhancements, new weapons, Bounty Missions, and Hangouts, with Rockstar promising even more new content as well.
