Red Dead Redemption is now live on Xbox One backward compatibility, Rockstar has confirmed. That means you can go and play it on your Xbox One right now. Really – go try it!
Still here? Okay, so today’s official launch follows a few months after a backward compatible version leaked onto the Xbox Store during testing. Some people managed to play it before it was pulled, although Microsoft quickly apologised for the error.
All Xbox 360 versions of the game are compatible with Xbox One, including the original release, Undead Nightmare and the Game of the Year Edition. And if you haven’t already got it, it’s available digitally to Gold members for £6.24.
Red Dead Redemption first launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in 2010, and was a hit with critics, earning itself a 10/10 in our review.
“It’s a magnificent piece of work that everybody should play,” said our reviewer. “John Marston may not quite be the next Jack Sparrow, but in the realm of cowboy games, Red Dead Redemption is clearly the genuine article.”
Rockstar has yet to announce plans for a sequel.
