The critically acclaimed original Red Dead Redemption releases next week for both PlayStation 4 and PC. However, the open world western action-adventure is not returning as a remastered or visually enhanced title. Rather, Red Dead Redemption is going to be playable through the “magical streaming powers” of PlayStation Now.
Additionally, the publisher confirmed that the PlayStation 3 game will be arriving with its Undead Nightmare expansion pack.
If you’re already a subscriber to Sony’s streaming service or are interested in playing the game, mark your calendars for December 6. The rest can continue with their daily routines and hope to see Rockstar Games update us on the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 sequel at PlayStation Experience this weekend.
In July, Microsoft announced the original game to receive the Xbox One backwards compatible treatment. It too included the majority of its multiplayer expansion content for free.
Considering that the ability to stream PlayStation games on PC through PlayStation Now was only announced recently, PC owners can give the service a try if they haven’t already.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated for a release in fall 2017. Those out there who have yet to experience the thrill and excitement of the first game’s beautiful western world, accompanied by a great story, can choose to stream the title now.
