Red Dead Redemption 2’s West is as weird as it is wild

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a world as much as it is a game, which is a fancypants way of saying there’s a lot to see and do. When I played it on console I did more of the doing than the seeing. But with the PC's photo mode, finding and photographing Rockstar's gorgeous world is reason enough to own the game. So when I…

Feature: Wide Wide West

I now refuse to play Red Dead Redemption 2 at anything less than 5120×1440

We all know Red Dead Redemption 2 is a gorgeous looking game (at least when it's not crashing and freezing), but holy moly does it look stupidly good in ultrawide. Specifically, the kind of ultrawide made possible by Samsung's new CRG9 monitor, which is an even higher specced version of last year's ludicrous 49in, 32:9 CHG90. Whereas the CHG90 had a resolution of 3840x1080 (making…

In this article, I've focused on…

Red Dead Redemption 2’s stuttering issues have a workaround in 1.14 patch

Update: Rockstar have patched Red Dead Redemption 2 again, expanding their 1.14 patch notes with lots more detail of various stability fixes that have come to the cowboy game. The apology for the rocky launch and the free items for RDR2 Online players mentioned below are nice, but presumably not as nice as the game gradually smoothing out its wrinkles. In a separate update linked…

Feature: Cheating's as common as mud in these here parts

Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats guide – a full list of all 37 RDR2 cheat codes

If you've played the original Red Dead Redemption (or, indeed, any of the GTA games), it should come as no surprise whatsoever to you that Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats exist. Rockstar have hidden away clues to their cheat codes inside various newspapers scattered about RDR2's vast wild world - but seeing as you're here, I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that…

Inside the free GTAV mod giving Los Santos a realistic glow-up

Scheduled to launch in December via GTAV-mods.com, a massive update to the astounding (and free) NaturalVision mod will overhaul the game’s already age-defying looks. We’re talking a remodelled sky, reworked shadows,…

You don’t need an RTX 2060 to get 60fps in Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1080p

Earlier this week, Nvidia claimed you'd need one of their RTX 2060 cards to hit 60fps on High quality settings at 1920x1080 in Red Dead Redemption 2, which at the time sounded rather excessive. After all, an RTX 2060 is generally what I'd recommend for playing games at 2560x1440 these days, so to say you'd need this kind of calibre card for 1080p on not…

This mod lets you roam Red Dead Redemption 2 as any beast you want

Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally here, bringing its sweeping vistas of the American west to PC. Rubbish, then, that you're expected to experience the natural splendour of the rolling plains as an old man with a pound of gravel in his throat.

Red Dead Redemption 2’s 1.14 update finally fixed our launcher woes

So far, Red Dead Redemption 2’s hardest mission has been to get it to work. A fair few folk have been unable to get beyond the new Rockstar Launcher, a crime punishable by tickling in these here parts. If you’ve suffered, you might want to give it a try now. The latest update fixed the launcher trouble for our hardware editor Katharine Castle, who can…

Feature: How the west was fun

Red Dead Redemption 2 review

Reviewing Red Dead Redemption 2 a year after its console release is like happening upon a frontier homestead after it's been attacked by bandits. It’s a game that has been subjected to every take under the sun, and stripped to the bone by internet vultures; every last secret dug up, every mechanic scalped and scrutinised, until no magic remains. I, adopting the role of world-weary…

Red Dead Online Make It Count guide – How to win RDR2’s Battle Royale mode

Was there ever any doubt that Red Dead Online would include a Battle Royale mode for players to duke it out until only one is left standing, bloody and victorious? Make It Count takes several of the hallmarks of the battle royale genre, but pares down the standard formula into a very fast-paced and concise mode for up to 16 players. It's far from easy…

Skip the snowy tutorial and trot into town with these Red Dead Redemption 2 saves

Red Dead Redemption 2 has landed on the PC with all the grace of a bow-legged varmint drunk on moonshine. We've seen it first-hand. Hardware Sheriff Katharine headed into her gaming jail, ready to take on the Wild West’s most fearsome settings menu, but there was a crashing sound and a flaming cartwheel came rolling out. There might be some comfort to those of you…

Red Dead Redemption 2’s frequent crashes are putting a stop to wild west antics

Well rustle my hard drive, Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally on PC. Yee-haw, and all that. Thing is, some gunslingers out there are spreading word that this ain't the sturdiest horse they've seen. From loading screen crashes to problems with Rockstar's game launcher, RDR 2 on PC is proving to be a grumpy ol' mule indeed.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now – but not on Steam

Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now on PC, two years after it was first announced on consoles, and just one month after it was confirmed for PC. It's on the Rockstar Games Launcher and Epic Games Store, and will mosey on over to Steam in December. So here we are, one of the largest games ever released and it's treating Steam like a…

Nvidia have come up with a list of graphics cards for playing Red Dead 2 at 60fps and it ain’t purdy

Saddle up cowpokes, because Red Dead Redemption 2 rides out on PC at 1pm UK time today (5am PST). I must admit, I let out a big sigh of relief when I saw Rockstar's PC requirements for Red Dead 2 the other week, as their recommended graphics card topped out at just a 6GB GTX 1060. Easy, I thought. However, Nvidia have just published their…
