So, yeah, just follow these steps and you’ll be one step closer to playing Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC than everybody else. And I know that most of you are impatient to start exploring that wild, wild frontier.

I don’t say this lightly, but there are plenty reasons to pre-order RDR2 on PC. The pre-order bonuses are pretty incredible, including two free Rockstar games from a select list, a bunch of in-game items, and more.

The PC version o RDR 2 is coming out on Tuesday, November 5th. Yes, my friends, that’s now less than a week away. If you encounter any headaches while playing, then be sure to visit our long list of Red Dead Redemption 2 guides. There will be more coming for PC specifically, I’m pretty sure.

If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.
