RDR 2 vs GTA 5: a visual comparison

Candyland has published an interesting video comparing the graphics of two Rockstar Games hits - Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption II.

More than a month has passed since the premiere of Red Dead Redemption II. The game turned out to be a great success and the best-rated production of the year. Rockstar once again delivered a real hit, so it's worth checking out how RDR2 performs against the developer's previous title, Grand Theft Auto V. Those interested should watch the video prepared by Candyland.

The material compares the graphics of Red Dead Redemption II version for Xbox One X with the Grand Theft Auto V PC edition running on Ultra settings in 4K resolution.

The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V was released three years ago, but it was only a port. During development, the studio had to consider the limitations of the previous generation consoles. It’s no wonder that Red Dead Redemption II looks much better. Nevertheless, the good old GTA V still holds its ground, thanks to, in part, Rockstar's typical attention to detail.

While watching the video, it's hard not to imagine how the PC version of Red Dead Redemption II could potentially look like. Rumors about it have been circulating for a long time and, according to the latest ones, the release is expected to take place in November, next year. All this, however, is only a speculation, as Rockstar has yet to officially announce the PC release. However, it seems probable, especially after some parameters relating to the PC version have been found in the mobile application accompanying the game.
