The long wait is over now: Red Dead Redemption is finally available for pre-load on your Xbox One thanks to the Backward Compatibility feature. Get your cowboy hat on, pick up your guns, and hunt down the gang of criminals who were once your friends.

Digital game owners have instant access to the game on the Xbox One. If you own the digital version of the game, you can simply download it from the “Ready to Install” section of your Xbox One and press the play button. If you own the physical version of the game, all you need to do is put the Xbox 360 game disc into your Xbox One and download the game.

The good news doesn’t stop here: all versions of the game (Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare and Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition) are Xbox One compatible.

If you want to play the zombie version of the game, Undead Nightmare, you’ll first need to get the GOTY Edition. You can also by the Undead Nightmare version separately.

Unfortunately for players, the Backward compatible Red Dead Redemption game also brings major multiplayer bugs, as gamers report:

‘Playable’… Are you serious? Multiplayer is BROKEN… My horse won’t come when I call for it and 9 out of 10 gang hideouts don’t have any NPCs. Co-op missions don’t have enemies as well.Very disappointing that Rockstar would release something like this for backwards compatibility.

Of course, this shouldn’t come as a surprise as this is the first version of the game. The game developer will definitely roll out game patches in the coming weeks and players will be able to fully enjoy the Red Dead Redemption game experience.
