Rockstar Games has announced that Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare, its zombie-oriented expansion pack, will launch for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 platforms on August 17, 2023, for $49.99 through the Nintendo Switch eShop and PlayStation Store. Developed by Double Eleven Studios, this release brings both titles together in a single package, allowing both newcomers and long-time fans to relive these classics on newer consoles, with PlayStation 5 backward compatibility. There’s nothing about a PC version yet, but physical releases have also been dated for October 13.
One of the most critically acclaimed games of all time with over 170 Game of the Year Awards, Red Dead Redemption tells the story of former outlaw John Marston as he journeys across the sprawling expanses of the American West and Mexico to track down the last remaining members of the notorious Van der Linde Gang in a bid to save his family. Relive, or experience for the first time, the events immediately following the epic tale of honor and loyalty in the 2018 blockbuster Red Dead Redemption 2 as Marston hunts down his former friends and outlaws Bill Williamson, Javier Escuella, and his former gang leader, Dutch van der Linde as the era of the cowboy comes to its end.
Red Dead Redemption on Nintendo Switch and PS4 also includes Undead Nightmare, the hallowed story expansion that reimagines the world of Red Dead Redemption as Marston fights to survive a relentless zombie horde and searches for a cure in a spooky, supernatural twist on the Western genre.
In addition to both classic, single-player experiences, newly supported languages include, for the first time, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Korean, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Latin American Spanish.
