PC gamers typically have it much better than their console-playing counterparts, but there is one thing console gamers have that PC gamers don’t. Red Dead Redemption 2 became an instant classic upon its release in October 2018, and it’s been painful watching console players rustle up all them varmints without us. Roughly a year later, Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally coming to PC on November 5th.

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC will be available for digital purchase via Rockstar Games Launcher, Epic Games store, Greenman Gaming, the Humble Store, GameStop and more. It will also be coming to Steam sometime in December. The game will officially launch on November 5th, but pre-ordering via the Rockstar Games Launcher will guarantee you access to a ton of exclusive content and perks. The Standard Edition typically costs $59.99, but pre-orders will be automatically upgraded to the Special Edition for free. Rockstar is also knocking $20 off the Ultimate Edition, bringing the price down to $79.99.

Those upgrades and discounts are only the tip of the iceberg. Those who pre-order the game from the Rockstar Games Launcher will also be able to choose two classic Rockstar games to receive for free. Here are the six titles you can choose from:

  • Grand Theft Auto III
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
  • L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition
  • Bully: Scholarship Edition
  • Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition

These are all seriously high-quality games, even if they’re on the older side. To make pre-ordering even more exciting, Rockstar has also included some solid in-game bonuses as well:

  • Outlaw Survival Kit for Story Mode
  • War Horse for Story Mode
  • Le Trésor des Morts Treasure Map for Story Mode
  • Cash Bonus for Story Mode
  • 50 Gold Bars for Red Dead Online
