When Electronic Arts choose to join Steam, Rockstar has its own launcher and it is mandatory to use it. You can now pre-load Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC and make sure to have a massive amount of hard disk, 109GB to be precise.
The new-age games on PCs are definitely at least 100 gigabytes or even higher in many cases. The situation remains the same for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 and Gears 5. The same route is being taken by one of the most critically acclaimed games from Rockstar, Red Dead Redemption 2.
A lot of gamers on PS4 and Xbox One strongly believed that RDR2 will never make its way to the PC platform. After all, the previous generation title was never released on Windows computers. Times have changed and what we see in gaming is a whole new world where cross-generation is becoming the norm.
Recently, Ubisoft confirmed that their upcoming title Watch Dogs Legion will have cross-platform compatibility. There are many other games following the same route because it keeps the player count high and keeps the servers crowded. They also help maintain a community of gamers for multiple titles like Rocket League, PUBG and Fortnite.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will have a massive online presence based on how GTA V flourished on the PC as a gaming platform. A brand new 4K trailer released by Rockstar showcases how good the game can look and at 109GB, it obviously should look amazing. Besides, if you did purchase a powerful new graphics card, it will allow you to crank it up to the highest because this is definitely one of the most demanding PC gaming titles in 2019.
The good news is, the game which is getting launched on Rockstar launcher on November 5 on PC will eventually find its way to Steam. However, the launch date has been pushed to the month of December. The game will also be available on the Epic Game store as well as for streaming on multiple devices through Google Stadia.
