If you’re planning on playing Red Dead Redemption 2 when it comes to the PC platform, you’ll be able to experience everything console players did and some more. The PC version of the game is getting some new features like more Bounty Hunter Missions, extra weapons and horses for players to use, and more enemy Gang Hideouts to raid. All of this will be found in the story mode of Red Dead Redemption 2 when the PC version releases in November.
Rockstar had said previously that the PC version would get some new content, but it wasn’t until this week that we found out what that new content would look like. It’s not just a few pieces of clothing or other bonuses that’ll be added to the game – instead, it’ll be a range of different pieces of equipment players can acquire and missions they can embark on.
A full breakdown of all the content that’s new to the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 can be found below with descriptions of each new mission or item.
