Sony’s cloud-based streaming service has been updated this week as promised with the addition of the critically acclaimed 2010 Rockstar opus, Red Dead Redemption.
Red Dead Redemption PS4 is now available via PS Now
The Wild West title is now available to stream across a variety of platforms including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PC. Unless Rockstar decides to release a high-definition version of the game, this is the only way you’ll be able to enjoy Red Dead Redemption on PS4. It’s also worth noting that the game’s expansion, Undead Nightmare, is also available on PS Now.
Rumors cropped up a few months ago that a Red Dead Redemption PS4 remaster was in the works, although nothing has been confirmed at this point. Right now, it looks unlikely it’ll happen seeing as how the game is now available on PS Now.
The biggest news to come out of the franchise has been of course the announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2, which is scheduled to hit PS4 and Xbox One in fall 2017. In addition to a single-player adventure that appears to feature seven unique characters, the game will also feature a massive online world similar to what Rockstar installed in Grand Theft Auto V, so it looks like multiplayer is on the cards.
In addition, Sony has confirmed that PS4 owners of Red Dead Redemption 2 will get early access to various content, although at the moment we don’t know exactly what this will include. The game has reportedly been in development since 2014.
The original Red Dead Redemption was released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in May 2010, and picked up numerous Game of the Year accolades from outlets. The game proved a huge commercial success to boot, shipping 14 million copies worldwide.
