Red Dead Redemption 2: What’s New on the PC?
Besides horses and times long gone
Although the release of Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC release is imminent, it raises a pretty good question: “What brings more?” In terms of content, a lot of things, but that does not matter much, since the game is still massive.
What about the graphics part? We don’t have a full-fledged remaster here, like the GTA 5 when it arrived on PC, but we still have a few new things going in 4K with HDR, on multiple monitors, wide-screen at high framerates. Rockstar has provided plenty of information on what the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC port has to offer. The game comes with a larger field of view, which allows you to navigate more easily and enjoy the wonder of the environment. It’s not as important as it was at GTA 5, since horses shouldn’t go 700 km an hour among trees.
After all, we have a more detailed global illumination, with somewhat better defined ambient occlusions, giving a more powerful sense of realism. Shadows and reflections are also improved. Then, on the field side, the traces of snow are more detailed, the trees have a higher degree of tessellation, and the grass and fur textures have been accentuated.
You can see from the pictures below that it looks really cool.
