Understatement of the year department: November 5th will be a very busy day for some folks, I think.
And guess what? you can get it FIRST, but not on STEAM until December. If you download the handy Rockstar Games Launcher, which is FREE and for a few more days comes with a FREE digital download of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Whattttt?!), you can be one of the first to get RDR II. Other Rockstar titles will also be available at decent prices, so feel free to stock up, if that’s your thing.
Official company line stuff below the jump. Images and a trailer to follow as soon as they drop from the source next week.
