Rockstar has announced that finally Red Dead Redemption will be coming to PlayStation 4 even though it’s not exactly in the matter that you may think.
Red Dead Redemption, a title originally released on the PS3 and Xbox 360, now coming to PS4 is something fans have been asking for; especially after Microsoft already announced — and released RDR via backwards compatibility for their own platform; Xbox One some months back.
Now PlayStation’s version is not a remaster, nor is it a digital download or retail hard copy, but you can still relive the tale of John Marston ( main protagonist) via Sony paid streaming service PS now.
Additionally the game’s original DLC ( Downloadable Content) ‘Undead Nightmare’, a stand alone add-on story with a Zombie twist of the western tale is also playable.
If you’re not familiar with PS now as mentioned it is a paid streaming service where you have options of a 1 month ($9.99 US), 3 month ($44.99 US), or year ($99.99 US) subscription to access a plethora of titles from the PlayStation library. I guess you can look at it as Sony’s way of compensating for lack of backwards compatibility built into the PS4’s hardware
Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare DLC is available now.
