Leaked footage of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC has fans in a frenzy

Footage of Red Dead Redemption 2 being played on PC has surfaced online via a video posted to YouTube – and it doesn’t seem like a fake.

The video focuses on the graphics settings menu, which gives more credence to the leak being real, as it comes with all the dials one would expect on a PC version.

Admittedly, the video quality is not great – it’s being filmed on a camera phone and a very badly focused one – but that hasn’t stopped PC players fawning over it.

At only 25 seconds long, and featuring only mere seconds of actual gameplay with the rest of the time spent in menus, some have pointed out that it would be possible to fake.

However, everything you would expect from a graphics settings menu is pretty much there; screen type, resolution, refresh rate, FXAA, VSync, texture and shadow quality and so on.

The original video has been taken down, but it didn’t long for plenty re-uploads to pop up, take a look for yourself in the video below.

One commenter compiled a ‘fake or not’ type list, which gives reasons why PC fans should (or shouldn’t) get excited because of this leak:

Why it could be real:

  • The Mouse Movement
  • Cursor highlights in menu – there is a sudden jump from ‘Map’ to ‘Progress’ (skipping ‘Help’) that would not be possible on console.
  • Space is for applying the settings just like in GTA V. Enter and ESC key can also be seen.
  • Each graphic setting has a description.

Why it could be fake:

  • Some graphic options missing – However could be a beta version. GTA V PC leaks also featured missing options.
  • No Keyboard or Mouse sound when clicking or hitting space – could be explained by bad audio recording on camera.

Regardless of whether this is fake or not, it is believed that the question is not ‘if’ Red Dead Redemption 2 comes to PC, but rather when. Numerous leaks and hints have already been spotted which make it clear that Rockstar at least plans on a PC release.

Two incredible gaming cosplayers came together to create their own versions of Red Dead Redemption’s Arthur and Sadie Adler — and the photos look like they’re straight out of the game.

The first Red Dead Redemption game came out in 2010 and immediately earned mass appeal, with the 2018 prequel keeping the franchise alive and fans flocking to the servers of the Western adventure game.

As with every popular game, film or TV show, though, fans have all different ways of honoring their favorites, and cosplayers are no exception.

Arthur and Sadie are a favorite of Red Dead fans.

We’ve seen some incredible cosplays in our time, but this one is really something special, with ‘maul_cosplay‘ creating his flawless take on protagonist Arthur Morgan.

That’s not all, though, as he also recruited female cosplayer ‘msskunk’ as Sadie, bringing the fan-favorite couple to life.

“RDR2 is my absolute favorite game and I think Arthur and Sadie should spend more time together,” maul said in his Instagram post. “That’s what the photos are about. Arthur and Sadie enjoying life and spending some quality time together.”

Arthur and Sadie’s relationship was an important one in Red Dead Redemption, and it would have been interesting to see their story developed further, and fans are definitely interested in seeing what occurs between the two — and the cosplay really showcases that. Not to mention, the outfits and setting are literally spot-on, and it’s almost impossible to find any difference between this and the characters themselves.

Both the photos and the cosplays themselves came out looking incredible, as if the characters were lifted right out of the game. Heck, you wouldn’t be laughed at for mistaking this for game art rather than just a photo of two cosplayers paying homage.

This isn’t the first of maul’s cosplays to make waves, with some brilliant looks taken from the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Borderlands 3’s Zane.

If you’re looking for great gaming cosplays, maul and msskunk might be one of the best places to look, since their attention to detail is sublime.
