Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Specs Point To It Being The Definitive Version

With the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 releasing next month, Rockstar Games has finally revealed the spec requirements for the upcoming game, as well as new content and features that will presumably be coming exclusively to that platform.

According to Rockstar, here are the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC specs:

Minimum Specifications:

  • OS: Windows 7 – Service Pack 1 (6.1.7601)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K/AMD FX-6300
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB/AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB
  • HDD Space: 150GB

Recommended Specifications:

  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB/AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB

You’ll need a heck ton of space to install Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, but at least the spec requirements are modest enough, especially for a massive open-world game like this. The improvements and new content added to this version of the game also means that it is essentially the definitive version of the game (sorry, console folks).

Here are the technical enhancements and new content in Red Dead Redemption 2 PC:

  • Increased draw distance
  • “Higher quality” global illumination and ambient occlusion
  • “Improved” snow trails
  • “Improved” reflections and higher resolution shadows
