Red Dead Redemption 2 Apologizes For PC Launch With Free Content
Red Dead Redemption 2 finally coming to PC was surely a welcome sight for many, if not for oodles of dazzling upgrades, then for the inevitable flood of mods that would spice up the game’s expansive wild west world. Unfortunately, the platform’s launch wasn’t very rootin’-tootin’ for everyone, as various issues had left many players with bothersome glitches or unable to play the game entirely. Having since patched out quite a few of these problems, Rockstar Games is now offering a batch of free content to apologize for Red Dead’s rocky PC launch.
Taking to the company’s official blog, Rockstar unveiled a special “Care Package” content pack for players on PC, now available to those who created their character in Red Dead Online. “Everyone who plays Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC from launch and through to the holiday season will receive a complimentary care package for Red Dead Online to assist in their travels,” read the blog post. “All Red Dead Online PC players will receive the finely detailed Prieto Poncho, available for free in the Camp Wardrobe or at any clothing store. Wheeler, Rawson & Co. will also supply a curated care package of items to help players survive out on the open range.” The full list of Care Package items can be viewed below.
