Rockstar Games just recently revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will finally launch on PC this November 5. The studio also mentioned that the upcoming release will include a handful of enhancements.

Interestingly, Red Dead Redemption 2 PC is now available to pre-order and the studio has also detailed the improvements it mentioned before. For starters, RDR2 on PC supports both 4K and HDR. This is on top of the support designed for widescreen resolutions, multi-monitor setups, and frame rates above the 30 frames per second benchmark the game targeted on consoles.

It holds true that PC owners have had to wait for at least a year just to play RDR2. However, there is good news since those with PCs will be able to take advantage of all the additional work Rockstar has poured into the title. One good example is the HDR. When RDR2 first came out on consoles, PS4 and Xbox One owners noticed something odd with the game's HDR implementation. Apparently, the HDR system the developers introduced mostly did nothing. Eventually, the studio decided to fix the feature when it released the title’s 1.09 patch back in May.

Apart from the aforementioned update, there will also be smaller graphical enhancements. According to the studio, Red Dead Redemption 2 PC will feature increased draw distances. This will give you the opportunity to see more of the game world than you can on console versions. Plus, Rockstar claims to introduce both day and night lighting, as well as shadows and reflections – all meant to make the aesthetic experience look better. Lastly, plants and animals will look more realistic thanks to improved textures.

Rockstar also listed all the new side activities, including items and horses, found in the PC version. This new content will all get added to the upcoming release of the game’s PC version. Highlights even include a variety of weapons that were previously exclusive to Red Dead Redemption 2's online multiplayer mode.
