Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC takes full advantage of the power of the PC to bring every corner of this massive, rich and detailed world to life from the windswept snowy peaks of the Grizzly Mountains to the dusty roads of Lemoyne; from the mud-spattered storefronts of Valentine to the cobbled streets of St Denis. New graphical and technical enhancements for deeper immersion include increased draw distances for better navigation; higher quality global illumination and ambient occlusion for improved day and night lighting; higher quality snow trails, improved reflections and deeper, higher resolution shadows at all distances; tessellated tree textures and improved grass and fur textures for added realism in every plant and animal.

Isn't this the same set of stuff you got for preorders when the game first was coming out for console? 

Unless I am forgetting something. I figured they'd have something special for PC players. 

Yeah, some of this stuff was PS4 exclusives but then released for XB1 later if I'm not mistaken.  Not entirely sure about all of it though.  Maybe someone else can answer that question.

Ah so no PC exclusives as of yet. Maybe they will release some special gear or something in the shop down to road.

I'm not saying no exclusives for PC.  .....just confirming some of those were early release for PS4 owners that were later made available to XB1.  I just don't know off hand if everything they listed was in the console versions.

Ah right, okay. I forgot they have "exclusives" for PS4. I am old fashioned. If you say it is exclusive, then make it exclusive. Don't release it somewhere else down the road just because.

I think it was actually referred to as "early access content" or something along those lines.
