'Red Dead Redemption 2' On PC Features New Single-Player Content, Enhanced Visuals
Red Dead Redemption 2 may be coming to PC over a year after it arrived on Xbox One and PS4, but it sounds like it was worth the wait for all the PC gamers out there who had to endure the constant memes and teasing over the fact that they were unable to play Rockstar's magnificent open world Western.
The game might well clock in at a frightening 150GB on PC, but that extra weight comes with a bunch of completely new single-player content for PC gamers to sink their teeth into. There's nothing as substantial as say, Undead Nightmare, being offered, but there are a handful of new bounties to hunt, treasures to find, gang hideouts to raid, and enhanced visuals (because you know, PC).
According to Rockstar, there are three new bounty missions, which in my opinion accounted for some of the best side content in Red Dead Redemption 2, mostly because I love the various ways your bounty tries to talk you out of taking them to jail once you're riding back to town with them tied up on the back of your horse.
There's Herman Zizendorf, who's hiding in Blackwater after nicking tools, an ex-Confederate Cavalry Officer who's wanted dead or alive by Catfish Jacksons, and the slippery Bart Cavanaugh, who's camping out with his men in Big Valley. All three will be available for you to catch and/or kill when Red Dead Redemption 2 hits PC, though it's unclear if consoles will be getting these characters in a later update.
We can also look forward to two new gang hideouts at Gaptooth Breach and Solomon's Folly, and two new treasures maps which will lead you to gold bars and some other valuable rewards.

In addition to the above, there's one new pistol, three new revolvers, a number of new horses, a bunch of stat-enhancing trinkets, and a new mission in which you'll have to collect various herbs in exchange for a range of rewards.
Basically, a bunch of stuff has been brought over from Red Dead Online, but new content in single-player is always a good thing, especially since Rockstar recently said it has no plans to work on single-player DLC any time soon, if at all. Instead, the developer will do what it did with GTA V, focusing on delivering updates and content for the online mode.
Red Dead Redemption 2 hits PC on November 5, and if you pre-purchase now via the Rockstar Games Launcher, you can get two Rockstar games free, including GTA Vice City, San Andreas, Bully: Scholarship Edition, and LA Noire: Complete Edition.
