New Red Dead Redemption Trailer and Pre-load Now Available

Rockstar Games has released their launch trailer for Tuesday’s, November 5th, Red Dead Redemption 2 PC release.

Once again we are treated with being able to see it in 4k/60 fps. TechPowerUp has reported that the game will have HDR and an in-game photo mode. They’ve also confirmed that it will not have raytracing but if the game is anywhere as demanding on hardware as GTA V was then that’s probably a good thing.

I purchased it via the Rockstar launcher a couple of weeks back and checked this morning and can confirm that pre-load is now available. Normally I’m indifferent for something like that but with a 109GB download it seemed like a good idea to get out of the way. Happy to say their server was able to saturate a 400Mbps connection and the download took roughly 40 minutes. Those with faster connections will obviously not worry about it but others less fortunate will need to set some time aside.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
