Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption is heading to Xbox Backwards Compatibility on Friday July 8th, according to a recent announcement.
A statement from the developer says that “Every Red Dead Redemption Xbox 360 owner will be able to play the game directly on their Xbox One, regardless of which version of the game they own (Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare and Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition). And for those who have yet to experience it, the game will be available to purchase on Friday from the Games Store on Xbox One.”
Alongside some of the Call of Duty games, Red Dead Redemption has been one of the most requested games for Xbox One Backwards Compatibility. The open-world western launched back in 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 to critical acclaim.
Red Dead Redemption is currently being offered on the Xbox Store during its “Ultimate Game Sale” at a discounted price. Gold Members can purchase the game for $7.49, others can purchase it at $10.49.
