Red Dead Redemption 2 puts on its best bib and tucker in ace-high new PC trailer.

I found those Old West slangs online. Basically, RDR2’s PC port looks incredibly impressive. You can watch it here. It’s niceness is likely due to the fact that, according to Rockstar, the footage showcased in the trailer is running in 4K at 60fps.

When the game released on consoles last year, it was already a stunning technical achievement. The PC port looks to enhance everything that made the game impressive. The new trailer is a fantastic showcase of the game’s stunning lighting and textures.

In a press release, Rockstar outlined some of the improvements coming to the game on PC. “Increased draw distances, improved shadows and lighting, new grass and fur textures, and much more – complemented by a host of exciting new content additions for the game’s Story Mode.”

We’ll have to wait and see what those “new content additions” are.

The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for preorder now, exclusively through Rockstar’s new launcher. If you pick it up now, you’ll get your choice of two other Rockstar games for free. The list of available titles includes L.A. Noire, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Bully and Max Payne 3.
