More than a decade after it was released on the PS3 and Xbox 360, Rockstar has announced that it is rereleasing the original Red Dead Redemption on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The game will not be a remaster but the release of its original title, including the Undead Nightmare DLC.

The digital version of the game launches on the PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop on August 17th, and it will be followed by a physical release on October 13th. For the first time, the game will support new languages such as Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Korean, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Latin American Spanish. There will be no multiplayer support.

The original Red Dead Redemption takes place after the events of the 2018 sequel Red Dead Redemption 2. “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,” Rockstar shared in its announcement. As the era of the cowboy comes to a close, Martson is determined to hunt down fellow outlaws Bill Williamson, Javier Escuella, and the notorious former gang leader Dutch van der Linde.

There were rumours before that the company was going to release a remastered version of the original Red Dead Redemption with improved resolution and framerates, but a report from Kotaku states that the project was shut down following the poor reception of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.

While no release date has been announced, the company is working on GTA VI. The upcoming GTA title suffered a major leak last September, but the company confirmed that it will not have “any long-term effect on the development of our ongoing projects.”
