Red Dead Redemption Will be Backwards Compatible on Xbox One Starting this Friday

After a brief tease back in February, all testing has been finished and Red Dead Redemption is going to be backwards compatible on the Xbox One...

    A few months ago, Red Dead Redemption made its way to the Xbox One for a very brief period of time before being abruptly removed. According to Major Nelson, a few games in testing were accidentally made available, and Red Dead was one of them. About five months later, Major Nelson and Rockstar Games have officially announced that Red Dead Redemption will be available for Xbox One Backwards Compatibility this Friday, July 8th.

    At the same time of the backwards release, the game has gone on sale for $7.49 as part of the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, so there should be no surprise if every Xbox One owner picks this game off the shelf this weekend. For those that own the original game, Undead Nightmare or the Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition, the game will be backwards compatible no matter which version you own. If these DLCs are not in current possession, however, they are still available at their full price. As with all backwards compatible games, if you already have the game, you don't have to buy it again.

    Back in February, the game actually performed relatively well on a polished scale, with a few frame rate dips in some busier parts of the world, so it will be interesting to see how much the visual palette of the game has improved over the past six years and the hardware upgrade. Now that all testing has been finished, these frame rate issues shouldn't be a problem for players anymore.


    You've known that it's been coming for a while, but does this confirmed (and quickly approaching) release date give you excitement, or hope for a possible sequel? Type away in the comments below!

    I literally waited 15 min so I can get into a freemode lobby, then I had to go #2 so that took another 20 and when I go back to my console, I'm still waiting to join freemode.

    This is awesome! I never finished the game once I bought the One so I'm looking forward to finally playing it again and starting the Undead Nightmare! I won't get my hopes up about a sequel but I would absolutely love one.

    I almost got excited.. Then I remembered how frequent it is for your console to be frozen due to modders in the online mode. I'll pass. :thumbsdown:

      not gonna be modders. just saying

      It's still the same multiplayer. Xbox 360 / X1 play in the same game. So those modders still playing on the 360 are capable of the same mischief of spawning items to freeze your game/console and the various other mods to disrupt your gameplay.

      Yep true. The multiplayer was always kinda meh. The game was only good for single player.
