Red Dead Redemption 2 On PC Adds All This New Story Mode Content

There's more for Red Dead Redemption 2 fans to see in the PC version.


Rockstar is launching Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC in November, and now the company has announced some of the extra content that's being added to the story mode. In addition to the improved graphics, there is a lot of new content coming to the PC version, which might be good news for PC players who had to wait a long time to play Rockstar's celebrated open-world western.

The new content includes new bounty hunter missions, more gang hideouts, and new treasure maps. Rockstar is also adding more weapons, including the Evans Repeater and High Roller Revolver that were previously only available in Red Dead Online. There are also more trinkets to collect that give players special bonuses like permanent increases for health bar refill speed and horse bonding experience. There is also a brand-new mission, "To The Ends of the Earth," that players can complete to earn a "range of rewards."

It appears Rockstar might be yet again commenting on politics with one of the bounty hunter missions. One of the missions involves finding a bad guy named "Bart Cavanaugh" and either taking him dead or alive. The name Bart Cavanaugh sure sounds like a lot like Brett Kavanaugh, the embattled United States Supreme Court justice.

Below you can see a rundown of all of the new content coming to Red Dead Redemption 2's PC version (as written by Rockstar). It's unclear at this point if some or all of this content will ever come to the game's PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launches for PC on November 5. For more, check out the game's PC system requirements for an idea of what kind of hardware you'll need to run the game.
