The critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption and its zombie-themed DLC Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare are coming to PS Now.
Rockstar Games has announced that Red Dead Redemption will be available on PS Now starting next week, December 6th. Red Dead Redemption is an open-world sandbox game similar to Rockstar’s popular Grand Theft Auto franchise. Players can wander the Old West on horseback and become a respected bounty hunter, a feared desperado, or something inbetween. Red Dead Redemption and its only piece of DLC, Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, were originally released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to near universal praise.
PS Now is a subscription service that allows gamers to stream games on a PlayStation 4 or PC. Unlike services like Steam or other digital platforms, gamers do not have to download PS Now games onto their hard drives. PS Now gives players access to a fairly large and ever-growing library of games, including PlayStation exclusives such as Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, The Last of Us, and numerous games in the God of War, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, and Sly Cooper franchises. As a streaming service, gamers need constant internet access, and can rent games a la carte or pay a flat subscription for unlimited access to the substantial portion of the streaming library. Additionally, people who use PS Now on the PC have to buy a DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller with USB mini cable, a DUALSHOCK 4 USB wireless adaptor, or both.
Unlike most Rockstar games, Red Dead Redemption never received a PC release, but PC and PS4 owners can finally try the game next week. Following a free seven-day trial, a PS Now subscription runs roughly $20 a month.
