Red Dead Redemption is widely regarded as a masterpiece in the gaming industry, boasting a dedicated fan base. Developed by Rockstar Games, this title offers an immersive gameplay experience with rich narratives.
Recently, Rockstar Games announced the porting of Red Dead Redemption, including its Undead Nightmare expansion, to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5. The game will be available on both Switch and PS5 (with backward compatibility) on August 17.
It has been revealed that the development of the game for Switch and PS5 involves collaboration with Double Eleven Studios.
Why is it important?
The availability of Red Dead Redemption on more platforms is expected to draw in fresh players who might not have previously had the opportunity to experience the game. This could result in a larger community of fans and a heightened enthusiasm for the franchise.
Rockstar Games has confirmed that the upcoming release is not a remake but rather a conversion that includes support for newly added languages. The newly supported languages include Korean, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, and Latin American Spanish. Additionally, the online component of the game will not be included in this conversion.
Notably, there has been no mention from Rockstar Games about the PC and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game, which might be disappointing news for PC gamers. It’s worth noting that Red Dead Redemption is already available on Xbox Series X|S through backward compatibility with the native Xbox 360 version.
Red Dead Redemption will be digitally available on the PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop, priced at $49.99, with the physical version set to be released on October 13.
