Red Dead Redemption has had a rocky start to its PC port due to some technical difficulties from the Rockstar Launcher. Now Rockstar Games has confirmed that the Wild West open-world title will arrive on Steam, the platform that gamers prefer when playing on beefy machines with their mice and keyboards.
When RDR2 launched on PC on Nov. 5, players could download the title but would face issues trying to get in. Once the logos for Rockstar and Take-Two, along with the beginning settings for brightness, occurred, then you were in the safe zone to traverse the world. The developer’s technical support team cited “unforeseen” conflicts with graphics drivers was the leading cause and got NVIDIA to help out. Updates before the port and after were made, which eventually got everything back on track.
For me personally, I had no issues, but all of my friends spent their entire days going through possible fixes from Reddit and Rockstar Support. If luck struck, you would be able to play without any bumps in the road.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will arrive on Steam Dec. 5. The game is out now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
