Why So Serious?

One of the biggest draws of PC gaming is mods. People love to alter their games and see if they can make it into something a little more unique. Despite the game having just come out on PC, Red Dead Redemption 2 already has a couple of mods.

At the time of writing it's not much yet. In fact, it's a grand total of seven mods, including a music pack from the original game. Of these five mods, two of them are skips that allow you to move straight into chapter 2, when the open-world comes in, without having to play the intro. Perfect for people who've already experienced the events of the game on consoles, or who just want to get a fresh beginning in the fun part. For those who want to skip a bit further, there's a Chapter 3 start as well. Probably not the kind of thing for new players though. There's also a pair of mods that offer more shaders. Both of them have the goal of making the already beautiful game look even better. A solid goal.

 

The final mod lets you turn Authur into the Joker. Why would you want to do this? Well, I'm sure there's a staircase somewhere you can dance down, as one tends to do when dressed as the Joker. Hey, if you're going to commit crimes, you may as well be as not historically accurate as physically possible. Nothing wrong with that.

Ok, it's not much yet. But it's still exciting to see the modding community already start poking at Red Dead Redemption 2. Hopefully, before long, we'll get to see some real shining examples of mods for the game. Or we'll turn Arthur into CJ and some other cowboy into Big Smoke.

 

Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

How do you feel about Red Dead Redemption 2? Going to mod the game? Hoping someone does something absurd, like replace all the trains with Thomas the Tank Engine? Let us know in the comments below!
