Rockstar Games has published a launch trailer for the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 that highlights all of the new graphical and technical enhancements afforded by beefier computer hardware. One thing it doesn’t highlight – but is immediately evident upon play – is the freedom afforded by using a mouse.

PC Gamer’s Tom Senior recently visited Rockstar to get some hands-on time with the PC port and came away impressed. Specifically, he liked being able to zip the view around at a moment’s notice with the mouse versus the tediousness involved with “dragging my view around with a stick.”

Rockstar has supplied a new batch of screenshots to drool over but the real fun will begin when you take control of the camera. That’s right, RDR2 for PC will introduce a new photo mode that allows you to capture imagery at will. I personally can’t wait to see what short of amazing shots will soon come out of this game.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to launch on Windows PC on November 5.

Whoa! What is the "mouse" you speak of? Is this some new technical enhancement? Only time will tell if a mouse will be an improvement than a clunky joystick. /s

I am seriously considering this game. Although it being so old that my friends don't care about it any more is a huge downer. Basically it's old news.

What? Is this a feature worth mentioning at all? I thought you want to play the game, not taking screenshots? Or maybe both for you.

Can't wait to test this on my laptop. 6700hq and gtx 950m. If it runs at 720p medium I am happy.
