Seems reasonable - wish they would post the FPS you could expect with both specifications. Also the 2500k will never be a minimum - that delicious thing is more powerful than the sun

The worst criminal in human history, undeniably. There has never been a figure in political history, so dedicated to destroying the prospects of organized human life on the planet, in the near future.

Yep, these specs look fine.

Yea, well. You know what they say. One mans boredom is another mans adventure.

I've never played any of the RDR games, so I actually want to check this one out.

In the current day where 6TB spinning rust drives are inexpensive, I don't see that as a likely possible near future situation.

While this is a very reasonable and optimized requirement for such a visually spectacular game, I still wonder why RDR was never released on PC.

I think the generally accepted rumor is that the game was built full blown spaghetti code to get working on consoles originally, and that it would essentially have to be completely remade from the ground up. And there is a rumor floating around that they are doing just that.

Well, the weird thing is, everything essentially already exists in RDR2. The landmass is built. All the characters are in it. All the systems exist. All the weapons exist. All the gameplay exists. So why didn't they just port it into RDR2? All they have to do (and sure, it's still a LOT of work), is to script the missions. Literally everything else exists!

I was firmly convinced they would announce an "RDR2 is coming to the PC, and we've added RDR, and made it one game! That's right, play from the start of Arthur to the end of John in ONE GAME!"

I mean, that would sell, what, a hojillion copies? Sadly, doesn't seem to be the case, unless they do a sneak announcement.


Anyway, the system requirements seem very decent for what I would have imagined would be an absolute system killer of a game.

Do Rockstar allow for graphic mods? I never played GTAV for PC, but I think people have gone pretty nuts prettying that game up? I imagine there are people chewing at the bit to release stuff like that for RDR2 and turn it into a system killer. I hope so anyway.

Rockstar's modding support has always been terrible, but I'm sure some enterprising soul will definitely release at least some different shaders etc.

I bet they're holding it for the next gen re-release.
