Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC is Now Preloading so Saddle Up!

You can’t play the game yet, but you still need 150GB of free space

November 5th is less than a week away, and you know what that means, right? It means that Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally coming to your PC. If you’ve pre-purchased the game, you can down preload (download) the game so that you can play it the second the proverbial doomsday clock hits that critical hour.

To star the pre-loading process, you’ll need to download the new Rockstar Games Launcher, and as we mentioned a while back when we discussed system requirements, you’ll need at least 150GB of storage space just to install it. Before you go check out those system requirements, though, let us remind you about the enhancements that come along with RDR2 on the PC. There will be new bounty hunter missions, gang hideouts, horses, a new mission, and new treasure maps, among other things. Red Dead Online has changed a lot too and should be honed nicely by the time you get to it on PC.

If you’re still looking to buy your copy of RDR2 on the PC, you’ll need to pony up at least $60 for the special edition – an automatic free upgrade from the standard edtion – or $80 for the Ultimate Edition that gets you some bonus outfits, additional weapons, a cool horse, and the Survivor Camp theme.
