Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC in less than a week on November 5, and so far the looks we’ve gotten at the game in action on high-end hardware have been impressive. With a launch trailer that dropped on Halloween, Rockstar gave us one more visual treat before the game’s release.
The trailer showcases a specific point in the story of RDR 2, when Arthur Morgan and his fellow Van der Linde gang members are hounded off the mainland and into the Caribbean. It’s maybe very slightly spoilerish, but it also gives Rockstar an opportunity to show off some truly beautiful vistas again.
If you’re already rustling in the Old West with Red Dead Online on consoles, you can participate in the spooky Halloween event for special rewards and partake in discounts on bladed implements like tomahawks. It also introduces a limited-time mode, Fear of the Dark, which grants extra in-game currency. The PC version will still be able to play the special mode for the first week after launch, since it ends on November 12.
Meanwhile, the fast-approaching launch means you only have a little longer to pre-order and claim bonuses through the Rockstar Games Launcher. Be sure to check out our pre-order guide to see what you can get, and make sure you’re prepared with the system specs. Meanwhile, if you order through Green Man Gaming, you could potentially get a big discount of sorts. The game is hitting several platforms on November 5, but notably not Steam, which will get the game in December.
