Rockstar’s Red Dead Revolver has been re-released for the PS4. It will be available through the Playstation Store. It will cost $14.99 and will feature “full 1080p up-rendered” visuals. Along with the upgraded visuals, the Playstation 4 version will support features like “Trophies, Shareplay, Remote Play, Activity Feeds and Second Screen Support” making the game available to be played on PS Vita and PS App.
Red Dead Revolver was originally released for Playstation 2 and Xbox in 2004. It was created as a Capcom title, but Rockstar then purchased the rights when it purchased Angel Studios. The team then became Rockstar San Diego.
Red Dead Revolver’s follow-up, the highly acclaimed Red Dead Redemption was released in May 2010 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Red Dead Redemption is not currently available to be played on the PS4, but it available to be played on the Xbox One, thanks to the system’s backwards compatibility feature, which allows for certain Xbox 360 games to be played on the Xbox One. Red Dead Redemption became available for the Xbox One in July.
In May, Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two announced that it will be announcing new games soon, but the games will not be available until possibly April 2017. There is no timetable for the announcement.
A follow up of Red Dead Redemption, currently being called Red Dead Redemption 2, has not been announced in any official capacity, but a map of a possible Red Dead Redemption 2 was leaked earlier this year.
However, Take-Two has announced the Red Dead franchise is a permanent franchise for Take-Two.
Gamespot’s review of Read Dead Revolver only received a 7.3:
Its heart is in the right place, but Red Dead Revolver tries to go in too many directions at once. There are too many different playable characters and too many unique gameplay elements that just don’t gel. And though the story is well told, there’s just not enough focus on Red.
If you can forgive Red Dead Revolver for its hubris, you’ll find a game with some great style and enough fun moments to justify the rough edges. It may not have what it takes to bring about a full-fledged Western revival in the world of video games, but it’s an honest try.
