Red Dead Redemption, the Western adventure that defined a generation, and its groundbreaking zombie-horror companion, Undead Nightmare, are now available for the first time on Nintendo Switch and for the PlayStation 4, with backwards compatibility for the PlayStation 5. Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare are presented together as one single package digitally for $49.99 through the Nintendo eShop and PlayStation Store, with a physical release set for October 13.
These new conversions of the original games were crafted specifically for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, and both are showcased at a framerate of 30 FPS, up to 1080p resolution on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, up to 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro, and in full 4K on PlayStation 5 (via backwards compatibility).
They also feature bonus content from the Game of the Year Edition including the classic Tomahawk, Explosive Rifle, and Golden Guns weapons — along with the Savvy Merchant and Expert Hunter outfits, and more. Hardcore mode for Red Dead Redemption is also included, as well as Trophy support on the PlayStation 4, and in-game achievements on Nintendo Switch. The games also now support new language options: Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Korean, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Latin American Spanish in addition to all previously supported languages.
Red Dead Redemption also includes Undead Nightmare, the hallowed story expansion that reimagines the world of Red Dead Redemption as Marston fights to survive a relentless zombie horde and searches for a cure in a supernatural twist on the Western genre.

One of the most critically acclaimed games of all time with over 170 Game of the Year Awards, Red Dead Redemption tells the story of former outlaw John Marston as he journeys across the sprawling expanses of the American West and Mexico to track down the last remaining members of the notorious Van der Linde Gang in a bid to save his family. Relive, or experience for the first time, the events immediately following the epic tale of honor and loyalty in the critically acclaimed 2018 blockbuster Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption features an award-winning score from Bill Elm and Woody Jackson, alongside a soundtrack from David Holmes that includes the memorable rendition of “Far Away” by José González.
