After being on PS4 and Xbox One for nearly a year, Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally available on PC. And when you're playing on maximum settings, it looks gorgeous.
In the video above, we crank RDR2's PC settings as high as they can go and then begin a new playthrough. The opening hours of RDR2 see protagonist Arthur Morgan journey through the unforgiving, but beautiful heartland of America--a wild frontier where lawlessness and civilization clash on a regular basis.
Though RDR2's visuals wowed us back in 2018 when played on Xbox One X, the PC version pushes graphical fidelity to another level, given you have the proper PC specs to do so. If you haven't had a chance to play GameSpot's Game of the Year for 2018, the PC version of RDR2 presents an excellent opportunity to jump in.
In GameSpot's Red Dead Redemption 2 review, Kallie Plagge wrote, "While Red Dead Redemption was mostly focused on John Marston's story, Red Dead 2 is about the entire Van der Linde gang--as a community, as an idea, and as the death rattle of the Wild West. It is about Arthur, too, but as the lens through which you view the gang, his very personal, very messy story supports a larger tale. Some frustrating systems and a predictable mission structure end up serving that story well, though it does take patience to get through them and understand why. Red Dead Redemption 2 is an excellent prequel, but it's also an emotional, thought-provoking story in its own right, and it's a world that is hard to leave when it's done."
