The 5th of November release date for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is fast approaching and I’m sure many people have been wondering if their PC can handle it. Well, you can wonder no more my friends as the official system requirements have been released by the good people at Rockstar Games, along with a fair few bits of PC bonus content.

Whilst the minimum spec isn’t actually too demanding you should take a look at just how much space the game will take up on your hard drive and make sure you have room. It comes in at a whopping 150GB so it might be time to make sure your internet connection is running at its best too.
