Red Dead Redemption 2 PC £28.10 through Rockstar Launcher and VPN

Posted 5th Nov
Hi All,

Found pretty easy method to get RDR2 for around £28.10 using a fee free card.

Install the rockstar launcher, dont run it yet.
Change your VPN to Ukraine (I have surfshark)
Login to the Rockstar Launcher and buy Red Dead (I just used my regular account that I had from GTA), price should be showing as 899UAH for regular edition. 1199 for special ed (£36.46) and 1499 (£46.84) for ultimate
I changed my payment location to be UK and entered my credit card details as normal and the transaction was processed!

Hope this helps some of you

Just told my boyfriend and he’s fuming coz he’s paid full price nice find op!
so in short:
1: Download unlimited vpn extension on chrome and sign up (activate email for access to Ukrainian servers)
2: connect to the Ukrainian servers and log in to your rockstar account
3: go to socialclub.rockstargames.com/sto…ial and choose which version you want (the price should be ₴899.00 for standard edition)
4: purchase with a fee-free card to avoid charges


the game isn't region locked and the single player etc will be in english providing your launcher etc is in english

And this is a UK version of the game then?


The game auto adjusts to the language of your console.

Just did this method earlier today after someone mentioned it on an earlier thread. Got the special edition for 899UAH.

I've reconnected to Rockstar launcher through UK connection again and it is still showing, 15 mins until it downloaded
More wondering if I can play on UK servers with no issues?
I posted this method in a earlier thread here!

You can use any card to buy, not just fee free, see my other comment in previous thread.
@sirhc93 Cheers. You know whether i can play with friends on UK/EU servers using VPN purchase method?

I'll let you know when it's finished downloading this 113GB beast of a download . Don't see why not as I just used my normal UK Rockstar account , think the only thing that changes is the prices on the store front.
@sirhc93 Appreciate it! Tell me about it I got another hard drive after seeing the size lol
Any idea if this works with other locations than Ukraine? PIA doesn't do Ukraine
As OP mentioned a certain VPN, I did some digging and found a pretty good deal for it on reddit.com/r/v…ons, here's the link surfshark.com/dea…fer (seems like it is -82%)

Should work anywhere but obviously the price will change, use this site to compare prices.

Philippines was mentioned earlier at £34

I'll probably use my curve card, should be OK, just not sure which edition to go for
I keep getting "An Error Has Occured Try Again Later"
Can confirm single player working all fine with English language using this method, just finished downloading it. Haven’t tried online yet, how do I check the servers it is using?
Surely the binary files will be of a different version to the UK one?

I wouldn't be surprised if multiplayer doesn't work when it's out.

There's also nothing stopping Rockstar from banning you...

Wait what? Is online not released for pc yet? Probably won't buy if that's the case.

Oh, I thought I read multiplayer isnt available yet, I may be completely wrong though.
just bought the standard game, the menu boys will be along shortly with the mods no doubt

No I genuinely have no idea haha. If it isn't I won't be buying though. Had to wait long enough with the console version.

Edit: I read on PCGAMER that online launches with the game

Is Rockstar Launcher any better than it was when GTA V launched? The number of times I had to redownload 60-70GB after spates of not using it. Waiting for it to come out on Steam.

Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC also includes free access to the shared living world of Red Dead Online featuring all previously released improvements and the latest content for the complete online experience including Frontier Pursuits and the specialist Roles of Bounty Hunter, Trader and Collector for players to progress through to earn unique rewards.
i think everything will be working fine without issues
the only danger is getting banned by rockstar but idk
any cheaper countries out there ? :-)
I bought it full price...better to be safe than sorry.
Edited by: "SlickShibby" 5th Nov
Red Dead Online also seems to be working fine with this
My browser VPN is set to Ukraine but price on the launcher store is still in English. Any ideas as to why?

Not really - you can just get a refund from your credit company if it doesn't work out

Thanks OP - bought

The launcher isn't in your browser, so that won't help - you need to VPN your PC's connection not just your browser. I use Winscribe and there is a separate exe to run to do that ... not sure about other VPNs.

Doesn't the Steam version of GTA 5 also launch the Rockstar launcher - 2 lots of DRM for the price of 1 ?

Try using this with the Browser VPN active and see if it shows UK or Ukraine, it's probably showing UK and that's why it's failing.
You'll therefore need to install a VPN that has a Ukraine location.

I do not know. All I know is I've never had to re-download seemingly any of any game I've bought via Steam (many tens including all the old GTAs) and the only RockStar game I've bought direct from RockStar themselves fails and has to be entirely redownloaded at seemingly everyone I go to play it. (I still have 4MB broadband)

My friends had similar issues with GTA V with the rockstar launcher. On launch the download was really really slow, patches also where 10s of GB whereas on steam it was only a couple.
Yup, I'm holding off for Steam too.

Yes seems to be working fine, although getting terrible frame drops both on and offline.
