Recently AMD released AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 ‘aka’ FSR 2.0 into the wild as a fully open-source product and it hasn’t taken long for the modding community to get behind it. So far the modding community has already added FSR 2.0 to the following games Death Stranding, Red Dead Redemption 2, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition, Dying Light 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Control and Cyberpunk 2077.

At this stage, the primary mod that brings FSR 2.0 to all of these games is utilizing core components of DLSS which is already implemented in a lot of games. The mod is based on PotatoOfDoom's Cyberpunk 2077 FSR 2.0 mod, and brings AMD's FideltyFX Super Resolution 2.0 to Red Dead Redemption 2; replacing its DLSS implementation. The best part is that the results between officially supported DLSS and modded FSR 2.0 are almost the same.

Just so you know: This mod will not work for cracked versions of RDR2. You need a fully up-to-date legitimate copy of the game.
