A pretty convincing, and potentially fake, video of Red Dead Redemption 2 PC has surfaced

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game that a lot of PC gamers are looking forward to. While Rockstar has not announced anything official yet, we are almost certain that it’s a matter of “when” and not a matter of “if.” And yesterday, a video surfaced online from this supposedly rumoured PC version.

Now as the title suggests, this is most likely a fake video. However, the reason I’ve decided to share it with you is because the man/woman behind it has done an excellent job. If this is a fake video, it’s one of the best fake videos I’ve seen to date so kudos to him/her.

This video is supposedly from an early version of Red Dead Redemption 2 for the PC and shows its graphics settings. However, there are some things that caught my attention, suggesting that this is fake. For instance, we cannot hear any mouse clicks while the user is browsing the menu. Moreover, there isn’t any “Quit” button so that makes this whole thing even more suspicious.

There are also other things that may tingle your spider senses. For example, the user does not show the game being played with the mouse and keyboard (though this could be faked by plugging a mouse and keyboard to PS4 via third-party tools/applications).

So yeah, this is probably fake but as said, it’s one of the best fake videos we’ve seen to date so go ahead and take a look!

UPDATE:

The original uploader has deleted the video but you can find a mirror below.
