Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally making its way over to Steam.

On Twitter, Rockstar Games announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available through Steam on December 5th. The game came to PC last month through the Epic Games Store, as well as sites such as GOG, but was given a delayed release for Steam. The game has been using the Rockstar Launcher in order to boot the game no matter where you bought it, which may be the case for the Steam version as well. Rockstar had announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 was coming to Steam previously, but did not give a definitive date until now.

When Red Dead Redemption 2 released on PC, it was plagued with a number of issues. Many gamers were reporting bugs, which included crashes and stuttering problems. Since launch, Rockstar has been releasing patches to address those issues, so hopefully the Steam version will be ready to play with very little concern. It should be noted that Red Dead Redemption 2 does require a beefy computer in order to play the game at its fullest potential.

Since Red Dead Redemption 2 released on PC, it has become a field day for modders. Mods include being able to adjust the size of characters, the ability to summon various creatures, the ability to teleport, and a zombie mod. Cheats are also available, which can give players extra money or even activate godmode. Now that the game is reaching another platform, we will have to wait and see what the game's community comes up with next.

Red Dead Redemption 2 first released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in October of 2018. The game then made its way over to PC on November 5th of this year. The title then became available on Google Stadia a few weeks later on November 19th. The game received a 96 Top Critic Average on OpenCritic, earning a Mighty rating.
