Yikes! Rockstar

Red Dead Redemption 2's highly anticipated PC port has finally arrived. It is definitely good news for PC gamers who have been waiting to play Rockstar’s epic title. Unfortunately, things are not going so well right now because the game is running into a variety of problems.

If you are wondering: How does Red Dead Redemption 2 look like even on its lowest PC setting? Well, sadly, it is pretty bad.

The moment RDR2 starts, issues begin to crop up. Players are reportedly having a hard time even getting the game to download and install. In fact, the entire download process frequently gets interrupted – and there is no apparent reason whatsoever. The Rockstar Games Launcher just keeps on asking players to resume the download.

If you are lucky enough to get RDR2 started, then you might want to check it on the lowest PC settings first. Youtuber LowSpecGamer has slid every visual option all the way down to their lowest settings and fiddled with files hoping to get the game running smoothly.

Unfortunately, the result (which you can see in the YouTube video below) is not something you would want for a game like Red Dead Redemption 2. The footage shows an eerie world packed with lots of faceless cowboys. Plus, they have no fingers and their horses are eyeless – not to mention the fact that the wagons are invisible.

On the lowest setting, the sequel’s models are capable of shunning all the essential textures and details. Humans, in particular, seem to be like Slenderman trying to understand what the New West is all about. Overall, the game just looks downright disturbing and hilarious in the lowest setting.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was launched on PC earlier this month. The PC port, as promised by Rockstar, is said to be loaded with a variety of enhancements. This includes resolution support of up to 8K, an extensive settings menu, unlocked framerates, an image mode, and a handful of other PC-specific updates.
