Red Dead Redemption 2 PC System Requirements Now Available

Red Dead Redemption 2 was a much-hyped and anticipated video game. Acting as a prequel to the original Red Dead Redemption, players were once again tossed back into the wild west as they attempt to gain riches while avoiding the law. It’s a game that released with positive reviews and for those who own an Xbox One or PlayStation 4, you may have already enjoyed the game fully. With that said, Rockstar Games finally unveiled a PC port which is coming out next month.
