Red Dead Redemption 2

Rockstar has released their first teaser trailer for RDR2 which will be coming out in the fall of 2017 for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. You can visit their site for the game here.

Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

Whether we will see a PC release or not is anyone’s guess. One one hand they didn’t release the first Red Dead Redemption for PC even a delayed after-console release. On the other hand GTA5 has netted them a cool $500 million in multiplayer microtransactions – a large part no doubt coming from PC players. GTAV also sold an estimated 60 million copies earning them an estimated $3 billion in revenue. I wouldn’t say the largest part of that came from PC sales but it no doubt has had a contributing factor in the game’s success.

Think we’ll get a PC version or not?


GTAV PC Mod Has Keylogger

A new Grand Theft Auto V mod called AngryPlanes has been confirmed to contain a keylogger. In addition to installing it’s regular files it needs to operate, AngryPlanes installs a rogue file (Fade.exe) onto your computer. It then hijacks programs that run regularly with windows to help hide its presence. This rogue program tracks all the keys you press and records it in a file that is saved to your computer, then it transmits this information to whoever created the trojan.

Another mod that’s been caught doing this is one called NoClip.

If you’ve installed either of these, it’s best that you change all your passwords and do a malware sweep using Malwarebytes. It is disappointing but expected that a game as popular as GTAV will be a target for malicious programs. It’s best if the person making the mod is an established modder in the community and is someone you or others trust.


GTAV for PC Released


Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC has released today. There have been a few hiccups reported by quite a lot of people regarding the download never finishing, decrypting the game files, or the Rockstar downloader losing it’s connection. There are of course probably more people who had no issues and some load issues on the download servers are to be expected on launch day.

Let us know how the game plays for you – lots of people are happy about the performance and say that it runs better than GTA4 does on their PC.
