Since Red Dead Redemption 2 got its first trailer today after being announced several days ago, the news about the Red Dead series just keeps coming. Now, Sony has announced that using the Playstation Now on PC option that’s available for PS Now subscribers, you can play a Red Dead Redemption PC version.
In order to use this feature, you’ll have to be streaming the Playstation 3 version of the game through Playstation Now, the subscription service that costs around ten dollars a month. This is different than the Xbox One backwards compatible version, where you’d still have to pay for the game (unless you have its disk), you’d have to pay multiple months depending on how long it takes you to get bored of the game, unlike the Xbox One version where you only have to pay once.
With the option for a playable Red Dead Redemption PC version (even if it’s technically not a PC version), Sony has only helped to build up the hype more for Red Dead Redemption 2, especially considering how much hype there’s been over the possibility of a sequel to the 2010 open-world Western game for the past several years, which only increased in the past few months as rumors and hints popped up.
With this new Playstation Now ability to play Red Dead Redemption PC, Playstation 4 players that haven’t played Red Dead Redemption before but are interested in all the buzz can dive into one of the best games of the previous generation, if they’ve got a PC that can run the game and have a Playstation Now account.
In the meantime, if you don’t want to re-play the original Red Dead Redemption 2, fans of the series will have to settle in and wait until the Fall of next year for the game to come out and take us back into the Wild West.
