Last month, Rockstar Games released Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, though it was a timed-exclusive on the Epic Games Store. This meant that PC players who wanted to play RDR2 had no choice but to get the game on the Epic store if they wanted to play the game ASAP.
If you haven’t gotten the game yet, well now you can on Steam as Rockstar Games officially announced that RDR2 is coming to Steam on December 5, 2019.

While the game is confirmed to be available on Steam next month, RDR2 will most likely still use the Rockstar Launcher, given that even the Epic Games Store version of the game also uses the aforementioned launcher.

While the PC version’s launch wasn’t as smooth as the PS4/Xbox One release, the game is still no doubt an incredible open-world experience. If you’re just about to get RDR2, here are a few tips to get you started:
