There has been a lot of news related to the Red Dead Redemption series this week. Rockstar has confirmed that it’s working on a new Red Dead Redemption game that’s going to be released next year. It’s the successor to Red Dead Redemption which came out back in 2010 for PS3 and Xbox 360. The game has already been made backwards compatible on Xbox One and today Sony has officially confirmed the Red Dead Redemption PlayStation 4 launch.
It’s not going to be a remastered version of this game that’s sold in physical discs as well as through the PlayStation Store. The 2010 title is actually going to be made available for streaming via PlayStation Now, Sony’s game streaming service that’s available on PS4, its TVs, select Samsung TVs as well as on PC.
Players who subscribe to the service will be able to relive the story of protagonist John Marston as he goes on a quest to hunt gang members he once considered his friends. The game is set in the harsh and punishing landscape of America’s West, so things really get interesting.
Yes, PC gamers will be able to play this title as well because the ability to stream PlayStation 4 games to PC was added to PlayStation Now back in August this year. This means that Red Dead Redemption can be played on PC as well even though this title wasn’t officially released for that platform.
The sequel – Red Dead Redemption 2 – is slated for release early next year.
