It's official: At long last, Rockstar Games has confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally coming to PC.

Rockstar took to its official Twitter account on Friday to make the announcement. The enhanced version of the previously console-only title will touch down on November 5. That's just a few days ahead of Death Stranding's release on November 8. It will bring "a range of graphical and technical enhancements for increased immersion." This will mark the first game in the Red Dead Redemption series to reach PC.

The massive, open-world Western adventure will gallop on in for pre-order via the Rockstar Games Launcher on October 9. If you're ready to rustle up your own copy, then make it a priority to grab the proprietary launcher. It will also be available via GameStop, the Epic Games Store, Green Man Gaming, the Humble Store, and other digital retailers beginning October 23. It will finally hit Steam at a later date in December. If you can't wait to get into the game before anyone else, just get the Rockstar Games Launcher.

If you choose to pre-order via the Rockstar Games Launcher, you'll get to choose two free games on PC. You can choose from Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Bully: Scholarship Edition, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, and Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition. Pre-orders through this store will also come with a premium upgrade to Red Dead Redemption 2 and $20 off the special and ultimate editions. Rockstar did not comment on whether there will be physical editions of the PC version just yet.

Additionally, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a launch title for Google Stadia, which also launches in November. It's looking like November may well be one of the most packed months of 2019, with all these new developments.
