Just about a year after the console release, Rockstar Games’ Wild West adventure Red Dead Redemption 2 is heading to PC.

The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 brings a host of technical, graphical and performance enhancements to the game including HDR support, 4K resolution and beyond, multi-monitor configs, faster frame rates and widescreen displays.

The game’s story takes place in 1899 in America, and is about:

After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

Those who pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC via the Rockstar Games launcher between October 9th (at 11AM ET) and October 22nd will get their choice of two PC titles including:
