- The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 launched to great fanfare yesterday.
- All manner of problems ranging from performance issues to launcher issues plague the game.
- Rockstar’s response has been underwhelming and players have pooled their resources to find solutions themselves as a consequence.
As a growing number of players jump into Arthur Morgan’s rugged cowboy adventure, not all is peachy. Performance-wise, the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 leaves a lot to be desired, to put it lightly.
Red Dead Redemption 2’s Many Issues
While some players are plagued with FPS drops, CPU spike freezes, and stuttering, others are outright unable to launch the game. It appears the Rockstar Launcher is failing to start correctly in some instances or worse, crashing unexpectedly, and even demanding activation despite players purchasing genuine copies of Red Dead Redemption 2. Some players are stuck on loading screens unable to progress further.
Other issues include sketchy audio, Rockstar launcher authorization problems, botched asset rendering, dodgy truncated UI, and the game not using the full capability of graphics cards.
Then there are the crashes. Players report the game crashing to the desktop during the game’s opening segment. Others suffer the same fate when tinkering with the game’s settings and even trying to access Red Dead Online.
Interestingly, the issues appear to be affecting players indiscriminately. From those with top of the line gaming rigs sporting the latest NVIDIA RTX powerhouse to those barely scraping past the recommended requirements, Red Dead Redemption 2 is proving a frustrating experience across the board.
