Red Dead Redemption is about to make a major comeback

Red Dead Redemption is about to make a major comeback

Get ready to play an absolute classic

Outside the goliath that is the Grand Theft Auto series, Rockstar Games also has another critically acclaimed franchise under its umbrella and that’s the beloved Red Dead Redemption.

Right now, it might be easier to forget about Rockstar Games’ Wild West series, especially with all the hype surrounding the arrival of GTA VI and its now-confirmed 2025 release window. Yet, we’ve still got plenty of time until GTA VI arrives and perhaps no series pass the time more quickly than Red Dead Redemption.

Check out the Red Dead Redemption trailer below!

The Red Dead series began with the humble Red Dead Revolver in 2004 for PlayStation 2 and the original Xbox. However, the series shifted up several gears with the release of Red Dead Redemption in 2010 starring John Martson, a man desperate to leave the infamous Dutch van der Linde gang behind and live a somewhat honest family life.

Then eight years later, we were treated to the prequel Red Dead Redemption 2, this time telling the story of Arthur Morgan who is also a member of the Dutch van der Linde gang and comrade of John Martson. If for whatever reason you’ve never played with the Red Dead Redemption games, I couldn't recommend them enough and soon, it could be the perfect time to see what all the fuss is about.

Earlier this month, Sony announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 is going to be included in the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium tiers. At this time, the original Red Dead Redemption is not a PS Plus title but that may be about to change.

Reddit user Timtendo12 shared an interesting line of coding on the Red Dead Redemption website that might suggest that the 2010 game could be headed to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass. If true, at least for PlayStation Plus subscribers, it would mean that both critically acclaimed Rockstar Games titles will be included in Sony’s subscription service.

If you’re an Xbox Game Pass subscriber concerned that you won't be able to play both Red Dead Redemption games at no extra cost, fear not. While Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't included in Microsoft’s subscription service at the time of writing, it does have a trend of being included and leaving the service more than once, so hopefully it will return soon.

The original Red Dead Redemption is out now on PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
