Red Dead Redemption - Never coming to PC

Rockstar San Diego is kicking the dirt off its boots and returning to the American west with Red Dead Redemption. Developed using Rockstar's proprietary RAGE engine, the sequel to 2004's Red Dead Revolver promises an open-world complete with "strong plotlines in a massive vibrant, rural environment" when it pulls into town this fall for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Few gameplay details have been revealed regarding the upcoming title, which looks to cast players not in the role of Revolver's bounty hunter lead Red Halow but instead a former outlaw named John Marston during the turn of the 20th century. Open world. A bad guy turned good. Just throw in Miss Kitty and her band of hookers and we're all set for GTA in the Wild West. Yee haw!

I absolutely loved Red Dead Revolver so hopefully this will be good as well

Funny, last week I was thinking quite a bit about 'Sunset Riders' and thinking about a remake...

...not that this will be anything like that (arcadey), looks to be more of a open world thing. I hope they at least make it amazing. I'd love an amazing cowboy game but there just never is one. Hopefully they can learn from the last one and really make this special.

Making it amazing is the very least they can do

Funny, I was just thinking about Revolver the other day, particularly the music:

It was great stuff, the Western genre is criminally overlooked in videogames, Fallout was so enjoyable because of the Western elements, new (yet old) frontiers and the lawlessness...

Ah I loved the first one, really struck a chord but wasn't as perfect as it could've been, fingers crossed this one will.

Gun was always better.

What this man says is truth. Gun was legend.

Capone; play it (you should be able to pick it up on 360 for about £5 these days) as it is quite a nice little 'cowboy' game (once you get past the scripted beginning anyway)

Have a look at

RDR (twas to be made & published by Capcom, with original music by Ennio Morricione!) I was excited to say the least. My favorite developer teaming up with an iconic composer :)

Hope this new GTA in the Desert = promising, though

Featuring improved horse jacking!

Seriously thoug Red Dead was fun, still remember the tense shootout in a half ruined building and the end battle chasing the train. As it is this is welcome albeit unexpected news but I do hope they dont just make it GTA in the dessert. Red Dead worked because at its heart it was a good, linear series of thought out missions so the idea of wandering into different towns watering holes to pick up hits and cattle robberies does not really fill me with that much excitement.

I agree.

This game better not end up being another Gun. That game was rather boring and empty whereas Red Dead Revolver was a good focused singleplayer experience.

I loved Red Dead Revolver and the idea of a free-roaming western sets me going something fierce. If I can put some of the descriptive passages from an audiobook of Blood Meridian on while I'm riding the plains then all the better.

I'd like pretty much nothing to cross-polinate from GTA IV though.

The game looks a llot like Gun now, but that's probably as it should be. Since Rockstar inherited / bought over Red Dead Revolver rather than developed it from the ground up, it makes sense that now they have a clear run at it, it would reflect more of their own sandbox sensibilities. While I liked Red Dead Revolver and many of its elements, Red Dead Redemption looks much better and seems to have a more fitting tone. As a big fan of both the original game and Gun, and a fan in general of games taking place in modern action games taking place in more interesting or diverse settings, I'm really looking forward to this one!
