Red Dead Redemption is an open-world, western-themed action-adventure video game that was created by Rockstar Games and published by Rockstar San Diego. The game was released for previous generation consoles in May 2010 and it was a solid game that received positive feedback.

According to new reports, this game will be released for the Xbox One console on July 8, 2016, thanks to the Backward Compatibility program.

In Red Dead Redemption, an open world allows players to interact with everything around them with the choice of travelling the world on foot or like a true cowboy on horseback. Just make sure you don’t get into trouble. Otherwise, some shooting will go down!

The star of the gameplay is the Dead Eye mechanic will allow you to shoot multiple targets in slow motion, which results in awesome highlights. There is also a multiplayer mode that the game comes that allows 16 players to play together in co-op or competitive modes.

If you didn’t have the chance to play the Red Dead Redemption on PS3/Xbox 360 or if you want to take a walk down memory lane, it will finally become available for the Xbox One console on July 8, 2016.

For the time being, Microsoft confirmed that only the standard version of the game would land on the Xbox One, but it didn’t exclude the possibility of bringing the Game of the Year Edition to the Xbox Store in the future. The game developer already confirmed that Red Dead Redemption GOTY Edition is backward compatible, so technically speaking, it is possible.
