Red Dead Redemption has made its way to Xbox One due to popular request! Those of you that don't know, Red Dead Redemption is an open world, western action-adventure video created by Rockstar Games. It was released first for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, but will now be featured on Xbox. Red Dead Redemption is a third-person open-world game, which allows players to interact with each other and most importantly with enemies. Red Dead Redemption was also nominated 'Game of the Year' back in 2011. A special edition of the game was released for this accomplishment.

Red Dead Redemption is coming to Xbox One through backwards compatibility. The game is now available to download for users that meet specific requirements. These specific requires are:
  • The user has bought the game from Xbox Live Marketplace, which is currently available for $29.99.
  • The user must be following a friend who has the game.
To download the game you must go through one of your friends game history and download it from there. These specific requires must be met in order to be able to view/download the game. Another thing to note is this will only work for those who have purchased the digital version of the game. This will not work for those who have a physical copy of the game, there has been no word yet if it will be available from the physical copies.

What do you think about the return? Will you be playing this on the Xbox One? Let us know in the comments below.

Microsoft have now removed the game from the Xbox One marketplace and it is no longer available to download. Larry Hyrb said this on Reddit.
"Due to an error, some of the games currently in test were accidentally made available. We have since removed access to those games, and apologize for any confusion this may have caused. We will have more information on upcoming releases soon."

If you were quick enough to snag the game while you could, you can still play the game offline but game saves are not available. No news has been given to us as to whether or not we'll be seeing RDR on the Xbox One anytime soon.
