Red Dead Redemption 2 Gallops onto Steam Next Week

Rockstar Games tweets that the PC edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on Steam on December 5th. That about covers it, but for the record, here's what they say about the Steam release of the wild west shooter sequel:

I usually blacklist any game that is an "Epic exclusive" because I don't support anti-consumer practices. (Disappointing sometimes, would have loved to play The Outer Worlds)

I wouldn't call The Outer Worlds an Epic Exclusive. It's also available on the Microsoft Store for purchase or with a subscription. Is it an exclusive if it's just not available on Steam?

The fact that it was only exclusive for one month instead of an entire year, and apparently had some launch issues patched out in the last couple weeks anyways, might be worth an exception for this one though.

It's on sale on the Humble Store atm.

Edit: On sale on GMG too. Damn, shoulda waited a couple of weeks and saved myself 20 clams.


It's on sale on the EGS, too, and the Humble key is EGS anyway so might as well buy straight from EGS. Both stores, EGS and Humble, sell it for €47.99 here in EU.

GMG is a Cockstar key and slightly cheaper at €44.15 plus you get five free games from Intel. I actually bought Destiny 2 Shadowkeep from GMG the other day at €17.84 which also comes with the Intel promo.
Tbh, the Intel stuff is pretty mediocre. Not sure if it is a random selection but my selection included Warhammer Vermintide, Gas Guzzlers, Guns of Icarus, some in-game crap for TERA and Neverwinter (both are F2P MMOs), Blade & Soul, Rockband VR, Last Tide, Sprint Vector, Switchblade and some other minor crap.
You get to pick five games out of that selection and you can get up to two codes from GMG for a total of 10 free games though I'm not sure if it is the same selection or if it gets expanded when you add the second code.

The cheapest option (Cockstar key) is CDKeys.com. They sell some 3rd world keys for just over €40 (if you pay via PayPal you get 2% discount).

BTW, it should be obvious why RDR2 is not up for preorder on Steam yet. Cockstar is gonna wait for the Holiday Sale to end before adding the order button so they can sell it for €60 on Steam from 12/5 until the xmas sale. Xmas it will probably go back on sale for the same €47.99 or thereabouts but between 5/12 and the xmas sale they are gonna fleece the impatient instant gratification kiddies.

As much as I like MW, I'm not going to support them on EGS. Ill wait this one out.

I honestly dont know why they want to make their fans wait a year. by then, the game will be long forgotten and most of the fans who played on EGS will not be around for the Steams release. Just dumbass marketing on their part.

Be nice if they had it on Steam so it could be pre-ordered it I wanted too.

Oh yeah, I've heard this, too, that keys are supposed to be EXTREMELY limited so it is really essential to get your preorders in ASAP. Hopefully Valve will wake the fuck up and enable preorders before it is too late!!!
