Red Dead Redemption Arrives to PS4 and PC Through PS Now

The PS3 version of Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar Game’s beloved open world Western, is coming to PlayStation Now this December 6.

In addition to that, its zombie-themed DLC Undead Nightmare will arrive to the streaming service alongside the main game.

Because of this, PlayStation Now is currently the only way to play either game on both the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

Red Dead Redemption Comes to PC and PS4

The release of Redemption on PlayStation Now coincides with Sony’s announcement last month on their new partnership with Rockstar Games regarding the Red Dead franchise.

Sony announced on a blog post last October that they were working with Rockstar in order to give PlayStation 4 owners exclusive bonuses involving the series. One of the things announced was that Red Dead Redemption would come to PlayStation Now “soon.”

And it looks like that “soon” is this coming December 6.

Sony’s PlayStation Now is an online streaming service. Through it, PlayStation 4 and PC users can stream PlayStation 3 titles as a pseudo-backwards compatibility.

It currently boasts a library of over 450 games. To use this service, users must pay $19.99 for a month or $49.99 for three months.

Xbox One has had access to Red Dead Redemption since July of this year. Microsoft added the title to its Backwards Compatibility program earlier this year. This allowed Xbox One owners to natively run the game on their systems.

Rockstar’s Western Gem

First released in 2010, Red Dead Redemption became the poster boy for the Red Dead franchise, greatly overshadowing the original game in both popularity and critical reception.

The first game in the series — Red Dead Revolver — holds a Metacritic rating of 73 for the PlayStation 2. Its more popular and beloved sequel however has an astonishing 95 for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

However, despite its popularity and how much people wanted one, the game never received a sequel. That is until earlier this year when Rockstar finally confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 was in the works and is set to release in the coming year.
