The Red Dead Redemption 2 PC specs have been announced. Following the reveal that the game would be coming to the PC with a short period of Epic Games Store exclusivity, Rockstar Games has released the details for just how much horsepower we're going to need to get this game running right.

Details on the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC specs are now available on the game's official website. One of the most surprising items on the list is the requirement of 150 GB of hard drive space, although that still doesn't beat out the recently-announced 175 gigs that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is asking for.

The PC version of the game will be bringing new updates to the story mode, new horses, and new trinkets for the single-player portion of the game. The question you'd want to know, however, is whether or not you'll be able to run it.
