Rockstar Games recently confirmed its wildly popular Red Dead Redemption 2 game would soon be galloping over to PC. Now here in the homestretch leading up to the launch, the developer revealed what kind of specs will be necessary to play RDR2 on PC. They are not too demanding, though if you're rocking a paltry solid state drive, you may need to get something more capacious. That's because RDR2 requires 150GB of disk space. Easy cheesy if you own a bulky hard drive and have not already filled it up with photos, videos, and everything else. But if you're skating by with, say, a 256GB SSD, you might not have enough free space to install the game. Fortunately, pricing on SSDs have come down dramatically... Read more...

It seems as though game launchers are becoming even more prevalent these days, and Rockstar Games is the latest developer to jump on the bandwagon. Witness the Rockstar Games Launcher, which is available right now for the Windows platform. The Rockstar Games Launcher serves as a repository for some of the studio's most popular games including the dominant Grand Theft Auto V. Other available titles include Max Payne 3: Complete Edition, LA Noire: Complete Edition and GTA Vice City (among others). You can directly purchase games using the launcher, and it will also add games that you have already installed on your machine.

It has been nearly six years since the release of Grand Theft Auto V, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the series’ next installment. Rockstar Games has not yet announced Grand Theft Auto VI, but rumors are already flying. The leaks include information about potential content and cloud gaming. The alleged leaks have been pieced together from a variety of websites. Many of the posts have since been deleted. A third-party developer who is reportedly connected to Sony posted several rumors on Pastebin, a text storage site. The developer claimed that GTA 6 will likely be available for the next generation of consoles. Rockstar has purportedly been working alongside Microsoft... Read more...
It is not uncommon for developers and publishers to crack down on cheating through in-game mechanisms, suspensions, and even bans, but Take-Two Interactive is taking a different tack in some of the more extreme cases. The publisher is hitting makers of cheat software with lawsuits, and is seeing some success. The most recent example stems from a lawsuit Take-Two filed last August against Jhonny Perez, a Florida resident who developed and distributed a cheating tool called Elusive. More than just a cheating mod, it could also be used to grief players in Grand Theft Auto V—one of the options in the software's menus allowed players to instantly kill others. It could also be used to generate... Read more...
Red Dead Redemption 2 is widely regarded as a fairly accurate representation of the southwestern United States in the late nineteenth century. However, one group is not pleased with Rockstar’s depiction of the wild wild west. The Pinkerton Incorporation is suing Rockstar Games and its parent company, Take-Two. The Pinkertons filed a cease and desist order this past December and contended that Rockstar had no right to use the Pinkerton name in the game. They insisted that Take-Two either pay royalties or settle outside of court. They are particularly frustrated that they “are used as villains, hunting the game's protagonists.” Rockstar and Take-Two have responded to the Pinkertons... Read more...
Incorporating a battle royale mode seems to be a recipe for success in the online multiplayer space, given the wild popularity of games like Fortnite and, before that, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Will Red Dead Redemption 2 get a battle royale mode when it goes online, either at the outset or sometime down the road? It appears that way. Red Dead Redemption 2's online mode rolls out in beta form today for all Ultimate Edition owners. The beta will expand tomorrow to all Red Dead Redemption 2 players who played the game on October 26, then on Thursday it will open up to anyone who played the game between October 26-29. Finally, all players who own Red Dead Redemption 2 can hop into the online... Read more...
Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of the most highly anticipated games of 2018, and it launched last month to mostly rave reviews (unlike Fallout 76). While the game has been praised for its single-player campaign, the multiplayer campaign is still a work-in-progress. Luckily, Rockstar is opening up a beta for Read Dead Online starting this week, and you'll be able to join in on all of the fun with players across the globe. According to Rockstar, Red Dead Online was built from the ground up to take advantage of the current generation of gaming consoles -- namely the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 families. The first window of opportunity to test the Red Dead Online beta will be tomorrow... Read more...
Rockstar Games is celebrating the success of Red Dead Redemption 2, its highly anticipated sequel that debuted nearly eight and a half years ago. The second game in the franchise is being lauded by reviewers, and it's found a massive audience among gamers. In just three days since it launched, RDR2 has raked in over $725 million. That is not just an obscene figure, it's the single-biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment, according to Rockstar. It also ranks as Rockstar's second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time, behind Grand Theft Auto V, which generated over $1 billion during its first three days. If those claims seem at odds, Rockstar explains that GTA V launched... Read more...
Well, bust our britches, it appears that Rockstar Games will in fact release its highly anticipated and well received Red Dead Redemption 2 game to the PC platform, in case there was any doubt about that eventuality. While still not confirmed (drats!), digging through the code in the RDR2 companion app hints at a PC port in the making. The consensus around these part is that the PC is the superior gaming platform. Unfortunately, Rockstar Games sees things otherwise, at least from a business standpoint. It's highly popular Grand Theft Auto franchise has a history of debuting on consoles first, then coming out on PC a long time afterward, as was the case with Grand Theft Auto V. Red Dead Redemption... Read more...
Are you in the market for both a new Xbox One console and Red Dead Redemption 2? Well, you're in luck because Microsoft has teamed up with Rockstar Games and a number of retailer partners to give up to a $100 instant discount when you purchase an Xbox One S/Xbox One X bundle and the highly anticipated open world game set in the Wild Wild West.

The reason why Amazon is only offering $80 off on these two particular bundles is because they've already been discounted... Read more...
Tell us if you're heard this one before -- a highly-anticipated game is announced, and then its developers push back its release again... and again. Such is the case with Red Dead Redemption 2, which was officially announced in October 2016. At the time, it was said that the game would be released in Fall 2017. However, in May 2017, Rockstar Games said that the game would be delayed until Spring 2018. Today, Rockstar has penciled in another delay, now saying that the game will be available on October 26th, 2018. If this launch date holds up (we're not holding our breaths), the game will arrive two years after it was first announced, and one year after it was originally scheduled to go on sale....

It is better to have some mods instead of none, right? In a welcome move, Rockstar Games and Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two Interactive have agreed to not take legal action against single-player mod projects. Rockstar released a statement noting, “Take-Two has agreed that it generally will not take legal action against third-party projects involving Rockstar’s PC games that are single-player, non-commercial, and respect the intellectual property (IP) rights of third parties.” It is important to note that Take-Two and Rockstar could potentially take legal action against mods relating to multiplayer or online services, tools, files, libraries, or functions that could affect multiplayer or...
