Default Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC

Wait, 150GB harddrive space?? Crazy, but then I haven't played a AAA game in a while so maybe I'm out of touch.

Uhm, if this requires one hundred fifty GB's of hard drive space, then I'll likely take a "wait until it's on a cheap sale" approach to this product.

Assuming the product is full of cutscenes that kick in while players are mmoing, the disk size required is not odd.
FF15 that has no mmo wanted cca 100Gb and is an eyewcandy with enormous variety of content plus uses hairworks on hundreds of different trashmobs fur, so…
I guess RDR2 has at least double of FF15's hairworks or today's mmos can't go lower.

However… Recommended i7, 12Gb RAM and GTX1060?
Who "optimized" that port? Ubisoft?

Recommended CPUs are an Intel one from 6 years ago and a lower end AMD one from 2 years ago. 1060 is a 3 year old mid range GPU. 12gb of RAM is a bit high, but 16gb has been a standard for few years. I wouldn't judge the game as unoptimized based on that, and when you look at minimum requirements it's even better. But, we'll have to see how it performs when it comes out.

Intel from 78565345377565786 centuries ago is still not i5. But is i7.

RTX 1060 is a card mainly used to smoothly present certain nVidia's gimmicks like hairworks on 1080/1440p. For all I know, Rockstar has no capable workforce to implement any gameworks in their games thus 1060 is most probably mentioned randomly or they hope it can perform 60FPS on 4K without stutters. But if it can, then the game on PC will look like the blurry console shit original RDR2 from Nintendo Gameboy. For all mmo lovers, here's hope I'm wrong.

16Gb is not standard in PC videogames. 8Gb is still standard and will remain as such most probably till Star Citizen gets released. 16Gb is mentioned usually when the code has a severe memory leak and developer is not capable of fixing it thus more RAM is necessary to prevent CTDs.

Oddly, SSD is not a requirement. I have to assume that Rockstar at least optimized loading times thus HDD should be okay. Or?

Wouldn't bet on it - but if they required ssd i suspect market shrinkage would be too great….

In anticipation for RDR2's release in November, I'm watching random videos. And found an amazing one. Apparently players managed to mod the game to allow controling fauna. When they fly the eagle around it's just breathtaking. The world looks amazing.

Pretty cool. The world looks good, yes, but it really shows how well modelled these birds are. That's not something you usually take much notice of.

Wow, Ft. Wallace is REALLY restricted. Even eagles flying into the fort are shot on sight!

Might have been worried about some Assassin scouting their fort with eagle vision.
