As you might have heard, Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on PC. This makes for it to be an excellent occasion for modders to basically edit and build it from the ground up, depending on their tastes, portions of the majestic experience that has been released back in 2018.
A lot of mods have been released thus far, many of which allow you to have a different protagonist from the lovely Arthur Morgan, but a few are also very useful in terms of how the game works and how it performs on your PC.
One of those is the mod you can find on NexusMods that allows you to skip the prologue on Red Dead Redemption 2 PC entirely. It’s fundamentally a save file that brings you right on Chapter 2 (one is also starting on Chapter 3, in case you want to skip even further) and all you need to do is replace the files in your Profiles folder (C:\Users\\Documents\Rockstar Games\Red Dead Redemption 2\Profiles).
Let’s make this clear — we love the prologue in RDR2, it’s very cinematic and allows you to get the grasp of the story, characters, and how those will interact until the very end of the game. However, you might have already enjoyed that on the console.
As it is prolonged and takes a couple of hours to complete, you might want to jump to the sprawling western open world of the title directly, without any additional waiting time or wasting time on a story you already know (and love).
So, that mod might be the perfect fit for you, in case you’ve already played Red Dead Redemption 2 on the console. In case you haven’t, however, you should not miss the prologue as it’s a piece of art itself outside of the main game.
The PC version also has a rush of technical issues that we’re helping you to fix in multiple ways, so check our guides just in case you’re meeting any of them.
