PC gamers may have had to wait for a long time for Red Dead Redemption 2 to hit the platform, but it's coming next month with new features in tow. Gamers who have already finished RDR2 on the console who are wondering if they should buy the game on PC will be glad to hear the game has new content for PC. 

The new features include three new Bounty Hunter missions, including Herman Zizendorf, Camille de Millemont, and Bart Cavanaugh. There will also be two new gang hideouts to fight through with new Del Lobos hideouts in Gaptooth Breach and Solomon's folly.

There are two new Treasure Maps, including Landmarks of Riches and The Elemental Trail maps. A new mission called "To The Ends of The Earth" will have players searching out herbs for a range of rewards. 

Several new weapons available in story mode include the M1899 Pistol with magazine loaded ammunition. The Evans Repeater that was only offered in Red Dead Online before. The High Roller Revolver is an ornate double-action revolver only in RDO before. The last new weapon is the Le Mat Revolver that can shoot shotgun shells only offered in RDO previously.

PC gamers get new horses for Story Mode including:

  • Warped Brindle Arabian – a fast and agile mount
  • Few Spot Appaloosa – beautiful and hardy, ideal for cross-country journeys

  • Red Chestnut Arabian – a fleet-footed beast with a distinctive coat (previously available in Red Dead Online only)
  • Plus three new wild horse variations – keep an eye out for wild herds featuring the Buttermilk Buckskin Kentucky Saddler, Liver Chestnut Morgan and Gold Palomino Tennessee Walker
