Red Dead Redemption Runs At 4K/60FPS On PC Via Switch Emulation

Promising 60FPS Gameplay For First Day!

Following the recent ports of Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar Games’ Western epic is available to more platforms than ever before. However, PC users are still out of luck, with no native port for the platform.

The game was already playable via Xbox 360 emulation on PC, but many had hoped that Take-Two and Rockstar Games would bring a native port to allow features like mouse and keyboard support for the release.

While this has not been the case, the Nintendo Switch version adds yet another option for PC users looking to emulate the title, with Red Dead Redemption now being playable on Nintendo Switch emulators.

Why it matters: Emulators like Yuzu and Ryujinx have been polished for several years and run extremely well. This could mean that PC users may soon be able to enjoy the best version of Red Dead Redemption on the platform.

As seen above, the game is far from perfect, but this is a massive step toward the definitive version of Red Dead Redemption through emulation.

Less than a full day after release, the game is already showing a lot of potential, staying close to 60FPS at 4K resolution. However, the game can exhibit stutters, and cutscenes can lead to drops below 30FPS.

In addition to frame rate drops during cutscenes, the Yuzu emulator displays various graphical glitches, but PC users can expect these issues to be ironed out in the coming weeks.

Previously, emulation has done wonders for Nintendo Switch games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, with Nintendo’s massive release becoming playable on Yuzu at 4K60FPS three months after launch.

Therefore, the next few weeks should bring massive improvements to Red Dead Redemption on emulators.

Since the Nintendo Switch emulators are not too demanding in terms of hardware, PC users with budget and mid-range hardware will also be able to enjoy the game once it is fully patched and running well.
