Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC looks absolutely gorgeous

We’re just under three weeks away from the long-awaited release of the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2, and Rockstar has released a new trailer which shows off some of the graphical enhancements that PC players can look forward to.

In an earlier update, Rockstar announced that the PC version would include a number of visual enhancements, including “increased draw distances for better navigation; higher quality global illumination and ambient occlusion for improved day and night lighting; higher quality snow trails, improved reflections and deeper, higher resolution shadows at all distances; tessellated tree textures and improved grass and fur textures for added realism in every plant and animal.”, as well as the fact that the game will also support HDR, 4K resolution, faster frame rates, multi-monitor configurations, and widescreen configurations.

If the new trailer is anything to go by then they certain weren’t lying. Check it our below:

As well as these graphical enhancements, Red Dead 2’s PC version will also feature three new Bounty Hunter Missions, two new Gang Hideouts, two new Treasure Maps, a new mission, a number of new weapons, a number of new horses for story mode, and five new trinkets.
