Purposely spoiling the game to PC players will get you banned INSTANTLY.

 

Don't engage into fanboyism, it looks ridiculous saying "console peasants" and "inferior", and similar, and any platform wars will be penalised accordingly.

Just for humoristic reasons   Can't wait for Wednesday to see first PC screenshots

Pre-load will probably be around 10 days before launch IMO. It is a huge game, consoles got a similar pre-load time if I am not mistaken. Maybe even more, given the fact that this thing has 50gb more on the PC :D

Never having done this day one thing before, how exactly does this preload thing work?

The publisher (Rockstar in this case) just lets you download the game without giving you any access to the executable, so that you can't play.

If there's no preorder, it'll probably just be downloadable in December.

People will find a way to play it early if that's the case lmao.

No executable anywhere means no game though. :p IIRC there's release date checks too. GTA V was never hacked like that and it  was missing the executable at preload time.

Cool.

It's a good idea so that everything's not completely overloaded at H hour.

To be honest, the only reason they would let Steam users preorder is just to pre download it. Sound obvious but yeah, I don't see why there should be a preorder other then download it.

It is, but as I said before, would be smarter to allow the predownload before the EGS preorders. Althought maybe EGS has its own servers?

Yeah, they do. Not sure how they will handle a release of this calibre depending on how many people order at the EGS tho. Probably not many I'll be honest.

Hopefully Digital Foundry uploads a video showcasing the new features a few days before the full release on PC, I'm pretty sure they intend to get review copies from Rockstar, right? I know they had a review copy for RDR2 for consoles days before it released in 2018.

They only uploaded Tech Analysis of RDR2 on 25th when embargo lifted though.

They did do trailer analysis videos at least a year before the game was released on consoles though.

Yeah, but mostly with trailer footage. Full Tech Analysis will come later I guess. I don't think there will be a big embargo like it was before. The game was already released, not much to hide or keep secret, except maybe the editor. But I guess the editor is not crucial for the Tech Analysis, so they might just sign the NDA about it.

I think they might give DF something. R* even sent them raw versions of the RDR2 console trailers at the time for analysis so. We will have PC previews just like GTA V before release, I'm sure.

Even though I've thought about waiting for Steam, I couldn't. I love the game too much.

Yup, here's hoping they have a few tricks up their sleeves with the editor dedicating more use for Red Dead's world!

Just imagine the shots especially knowing how brutal the gunplay is.

man, i can't wait to see what western movies and so on people create. I modded V heavily (900+ hours in single player) and it was like a complete overhaul!

 

Looking to create a gritty western vibe when the modding scene picks up.

I used to make short films with the GTA IV video editor on PC back in the day. I imagine RDR2's will be on another level. I hope Rockstar announces it soon.

Not sure, I've ran with a 1tb Seagate HDD that's lasted me years & paired with x2 250 Samsung ssd's.

Find stuff to play/watch, revisit games for a second playthrough or DLC is what I do.

 

I passed the time for the console launch by starting another playthrough of Divinity Original Sin 2, this time around I've been playing the newly released Disco Elysium and will probably check out The Outer World's next week unless it's a train wreck.

 

Basically I play RPG's cause they're godly to pass the time with lol.
