Ahead of the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC release time today, it looks like some players are (somehow) already getting the Red Dead Redemption 2 mods scene up and running. There’s a Nexus Mods page live for the game – and a few mods already available that will add something extra to your game when it launches.
First up, there’s a RDR2 mod that turns cowboy hero, and game protagonist, Arthur Morgan into Batman’s long-time nemesis – the Joker. Adding some white and red clown makeup to Morgan’s face with a re-texture, the mod by creators RedDeadModders even recreates Gotham City’s most villainous clown’s haunting, angular smile.
Even with the extensive character customisation options offered in the game through Morgan’s wardrobe and facial hair, it’s sure to add something very new to his style.
Also live on the website is a mod that adds some of the music and sounds from the first Red Dead Redemption game to its prequel-sequel. The Red Dead Redemption sound files mod from users Fish and Copper4life69 imports some of the familiar tracks from the first game, like Horseplay, The Shootist, Triggernometry, and more. The mod also adds a bunch of ambient tracks from the original, such as the sounds from Tall Trees, Armadillo, and Blackwater, plus the Red Dead Redemption theme.
The first Red Dead Redemption – released in 2010 – never made it to PC, but now you’ll be able to get a taster in RDR2 of the game’s ambience and tunes, composed by Bill Elm and Woody Jackson – the latter also being the composer of the Red Dead Redemption 2 original music soundtrack.
If you’re keen to grab either of the mods, head over to Nexus Mods ready for when the game launches. You can also check out our Red Dead Redemption 2 PC review in progress if you’re excited to jump into the game.
