Rockstar Games has announced that Red Dead Redemption is coming to the PS4 and Switch on August 17 and will retail for $49.99.
The game will release digitally and will include the “Undead Nightmare” DLC and a physical edition is coming on October 13. It will also be backward compatible with the PS5.
Here’s an overview of the game:
Experience the epic Western adventure Red Dead Redemption and its groundbreaking zombie-horror companion, “Undead Nightmare,” as both games come to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 for the very first time in a single package. In a new conversion by Double Eleven Studios, the Switch and PlayStation 4 versions bring the two classic experiences together again for both new players and original fans to enjoy across modern consoles, including backwards compatibility with the PlayStation 5.
One of the most critically acclaimed games of all time with over 170 Game of the Year Awards, Red Dead Redemption tells the story of former outlaw John Marston as he journeys across the sprawling expanses of the American West and Mexico to track down the last remaining members of the notorious Van der Linde Gang in a bid to save his family. Relive, or experience for the first time, the events immediately following the epic tale of honor and loyalty in the 2018 blockbuster Red Dead Redemption 2 as Marston hunts down his former friends and outlaws Bill Williamson, Javier Escuella, and his former gang leader, Dutch van der Linde as the era of the cowboy comes to its end.
