Red Dead Redemption 2 now looks better than ever, it’s crazy!

Red Dead Redemption 2 is truly enjoying a second life on PC thanks to various improvements, enough to totally amaze and revolutionize the experience.

Released a few years ago, Red Dead Redemption 2 continues to stand out as one of the most visually impressive open world games. On PC, the game takes on a whole new dimension thanks to high-quality mods.

Red Dead Redemption 2 yes, but more beautiful

Recently, an 8K resolution video made by Digital Dreams highlighted the Visual Redemption mod, a visual overhaul developed by Razer Mods. This team is already known for their exceptional work on the “NaturalVision Evolved” mod for Grand Theft Auto V. The improvements brought by the Visual Redemption mod are significant, notably in terms of an improved weather system, extended shadow distance, and more realistic water reflections. These changes transform the visual experience of the game, making the already rich and detailed universe even more immersive. The video is simply stunning. See instead:


The game looks better than ever. The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 has established itself over the years as the definitive version of the game. Not only does it offer the best visual quality, but it is also the only version that runs at 60 frames per second and above, a significant advantage over the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. The latter have not benefited from updates to fully exploit the capabilities of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. Damage. While Red Dead Redemption first of the name benefits from it. A shame, no?

A titan configuration

As you might expect, the configuration to take advantage of this rendering is quite crazy:

  • Motherboard (MB): Gigabyte Aorus X670 AX
  • Processor (CPU): Ryzen 9 7950x
  • RAM: Kingston Fury 6000MHz
  • Graphics card (GPU): NVIDIA RTX 4090
  • M.2 SSD: Samsung 970 Evo
  • Solid state drive: Crucial MX500 2TB
  • Hard Disk (HDD): Seagate Barracuda 14TB
  • Liquid Cooling System (AIO WC): Artic Liquid Freezer 420
  • Power Supply Unit (PSU): be quiet! Straight Power
  • Fans: Arctic P12

The computer configuration described would cost around 4,400 euros. All this is no less impressive and it gives good hope for Red Dead 3. However, if the game is indeed in preparation and the plans do not change in the meantime.
