I'm loathed to share this with you as I’m almost certain it’s fake, but footage has leaked from an alleged PC build of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Apologies for yesterday's streaking pitch invaders who delayed the kick-off. Frostpunk and Two Point were finally caught and escorted from the premises before God of War and Battlefield V could launch into each other. All's well that ends well though, and God of War gave BFV an absolute tonking. It's our first finalist, now it's time to crown our next semi-final winner as RDR2 takes on Far Cry 5.
It turns out not even one of the most recognisable superheroes on the planet still struggles when he comes up against a god. Kratos threw an axe at Peter Parker's head and he was dead before he could even splurge a load of gross-looking stuff back. God of War emphatically destroyed Spider-Man, booking a 12 Games Semi-Final slot against Battlefield V.
Rockstar has practically shadow dropped the Red Dead Online Beta, announcing access begins today, November 27th, at 8:30am EST / 1:30pm GMT / 2:30pm CET.
The big question of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is surely a matter of if, not when, but Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick still won’t be drawn into confirming it’s happening.
UPDATE: Take-Two has announced Red Dead Redemption 2 sold-in 17 million copies worldwide during its first eight days on sale. This already puts Red Dead 2 in the top 40 bestselling games of all time, a feat achieved in a matter of days. Red Dead Redemption 2 has now sold more copies than the original Red Dead Redemption. RDR2 has done in eight days what it took RDR eight years to achieve.
This week a sensational story broke concerning tech and gaming website Trusted Reviews. Having leaked what turned out to be pretty much spot-on info about Red Dead Redemption 2 all the way back in February of this year, Trusted Reviews were approached by Take-Two’s legal heavyweights and reached a £1 million settlement.
British video game and tech website ‘Trusted Reviews’ has paid out a £1 million donation to various charities and apologised to Rockstar for a massive Red Dead Redemption 2 leak earlier this year. The leak detailed missions, mechanics, story details, and online multiplayer modes.
In further evidence that Red Dead Redemption 2 is eventually coming to PC, the official Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App makes several references to a PC version of Rockstar’s open-world Western.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an action-RPG set in one of the most complex and believable open-worlds ever seen. Rockstar has built a deep set of systems and mechanics that governs how it all works. Wrapping your head around it all can a little confusing though, and even dozens of hours later you'll be sure to be stumbling on new things you didn't know were possible.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is out this week on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Sadly though, Rockstar has yet to even announced a PC version. Rest assured though, it'll be coming one day.
