Rockstar Reveals Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Requirements

The requirements for Rockstar Games’ PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 are out, and those who want to play the game on that platform might need to make some room for it. Rockstar’s specs for the game found in the company’s PC launcher indicate that people should set aside 150GB for Red Dead Redemption 2. It’s a fair amount of space to dedicate to a game, but for those who saw how large Red Dead Redemption 2 was when it released first on consoles, it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise.

PC Gamer reported on the required space and other system specs for the upcoming PC game. Your experience will differ depending on if you’re able to hit the recommended specs or just the minimum ones, but regardless of which you’re able to achieve, you’ll need to have at least 150GB worth of space to play.

The full list of recommended and minimum specs can be found below so you can know what to expect when the game releases, but you can also find them in the Rockstar Games Launcher where you’ll be able to play Red Dead Redemption 2 when it’s out.
