Sony and Rockstar have announced that Playstation users will get first access to earn select online content in Red Dead Redemption 2. The game is set to be released in Autumn 2017 on PS4 and Xbox One.
With this partnership between Playstation and Rockstar, I would expect to hear more and see more of this game at the Playstation Experience on December 3 – 4, so add this date to your calendar if you’re looking forward to Red Dead Redemption 2.
More interestingly though is that in the post on the Playstation Blog, posted on the 20.10.2016, Red Dead Redemption will be coming to Playstation Now. No date has been given, but they did state it would be “soon”.
Playstation Now is the streaming service which allows users to stream PS3 games for the price of £12.99/$19.99 per month. This may come as a sour taste in some mouths who have already paid for the game on previous consoles, and will now have to part with more money if they wish to play it on their PS4. However, if you haven’t used your free trial period, it may be worth holding onto it when Red Dead Redemption is released.
For those PC players who never got the chance to play Red Dead Redemption and are still wanting to experience the Wild West, then this might be the reason you decide to invest in PS Now. Since the streaming service was launched on PC, it has received rave reviews and you will be able to play Red Dead Redemption on that lovely PC of yours. Not the way you may have wanted to play, but it may be a better workaround than having an awful PC port.
