Red Dead Redemption Will (Kind Of) Be Playable On PC

In all the excitement surrounding the reveal of Red Dead Redemption 2, fans may be excited to learn that its predecessor is finally coming to PC – but not in the way you might’ve expected. 


2010’s Red Dead Redemption will be made available through the PlayStation Now streaming service, meaning fans will be able to stream the PS3 version of the game to PC.

Obviously, this isn’t the native PC version that fans have been waiting so long for – it will literally be the PS3 version beamed onto your computer – but it’s a start, right?

The excellent Red Dead Redemption joins an already impressive cast of PlayStation Now games, including The Last of Us, Uncharted 2, and God of War.


The first trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, meanwhile, was shown off very recently. You can take a look at that below, just to remind yourself that the game is indeed finally coming.

Beautiful. Years from now, when your grandchildren ask if dreams really can come true, you just sit them down and tell them all about the trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, okay?

Unfortunately, there’s still no word of a PC release for the hotly anticipated sequel either, something that really hasn’t gone down well at all with fans. 


PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gamers can expect to get stuck in Fall 2017, while the PS4 version has also been confirmed to get timed exclusive content.
