Rockstar releases Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC in November, and the company has now revealed some of the additional content added to the story mode. Besides the improved graphics, there’s a lot of new content coming up to the PC version, which could be good news for PC players who had to wait a long time to enjoy the beloved open-world western of Rockstar.
The new content includes new missions of bounty hunter, more hideouts of gangs and new maps of gold. More arms are also being introduced by Rockstar, including the Evans Repeater and High Roller Revolver, which were previously only available on Red Dead Online. There are also more trinkets to earn that give players special bonuses for health bar refill pace and horse bonding experience, such as permanent increases. There’s also a brand-new mission, “To the Earth’s Ends,” which players can complete to gain a “reward set.”
It seems that with one of the bounty hunter missions, Rockstar might be focusing on politics again. One of the missions is to find a bad guy named “Bart Cavanaugh” and either take him alive or dead. Bart Cavanaugh’s name sure sounds like Brett Kavanaugh, the U.S. Supreme Court’s embattled judge, a bit.
Below you can see a rundown of all the new content coming to the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 (as Rockstar wrote). If some or all of this content will ever come to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game is unclear at this point.
Red Dead Redemption 2’s November 5 PC launches. Check out the PC system requirements of the game for an indication of what kind of hardware you will need to run the game for more.
