Rockstar Games has released a new update for Red Dead Redemption that allows the PS4 version of the Western adventure to run at 60 FPS when played on the PS5 via backward compatibility. This would mark a welcome improvement over the original state of the game, which was released for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on August 17 for $49.99 with a frame rate limit of 30 FPS, with up to 1080p resolution on the Nintendo Switch and PS4, up to 4K on the PS4 Pro, and in full 4K on PlayStation 5. Meanwhile, PC gamers have been enjoying the game at over 200 FPS thanks to advancements in emulators that include Xenia.

Red Dead Redemption Title Update 1.03 Notes

  • Added an option to enable 60 FPS when played on PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility
  • Added an option to enable subtitles upon first booting the game
  • General bug fixes and improvements

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.
