Red Dead Redemption 2 is out for PC, a first for the series. However, some players are still waiting to play because of various issues with the game. 

Rockstar Games released its critically acclaimed Western-themed open-world title on Tuesday via the publisher’s own game launcher. The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 has improved graphics over the PS4 and Xbox One versions along with more content, including bounty hunting missions, gang hideouts, weapons and more. The problem is that the game is simply not working for some. 

A number of people say they can’t start the game, according to multiple Reddit threads and tweets. Issues include the game crashing constantly, messages saying activation required and a neverending loading screens. Some have learned how to fix the issues, from updating various drivers to disabling antivirus software. Those who are playing the game noticed stuttering and frame rate issues. 

Rockstar has a support page for those who are seeing the “Red Dead Redemption 2 Exited Unexpectedly” error message. It says the most common cause of this problem is outdated graphics drivers. 

The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 will also have another release in two weeks when it launches with Google Stadia. The cloud-gaming subscription service will go live on Nov 19.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a cinematic action-adventure game set in the Wild West. The title takes place in 1899, a time which brought stability to the United States, but also resulted in a drastic shift for many individuals who lived close to the untamed frontier. Beforehand, the federal government chose not to heavily intervene in these territories, going all the way to California.

However, the need for consolidation and some form of control — especially when states like Montana and Utah were admitted into the Union — triggered an end to the uncontrolled lawlessness that prevailed during those times. What many people considered “true freedom” was coming to an end.

According to developer Rockstar Games, Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC is optimized to take full advantage of the platform with new graphical and technical enhancements. There’s increased draw distances for better navigation, higher quality global illumination, support for high-end display setups with 4K resolution and beyond, multi-monitor configurations, widescreen configurations, faster frame rates, and more.

You can download Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC through the Rockstar Launcher. The game may appear on other platforms later, but right now, that’s the only way.
