Rockstar Games announces Red Dead
Redemption for Fall 2009

Rockstar Games, a publishing label
of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. is proud to announce that Red Dead
Redemption is scheduled for a fall 2009 release on the Xbox 360® video game and
entertainment system and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. Developed
by Rockstar San Diego, as a follow up to the 2004 hit game, Red Dead Revolver,
Red Dead Redemption is a Western epic, set at the turn of the 20th century when
the lawless and chaotic badlands began to give way to the expanding reach of
government and the spread of the Industrial Age. The story of former outlaw,
John Marston, Red Dead Redemption takes players on a great adventure across the
American frontier.

“The team at San Diego have
massively exceeded our expectations with the sheer depth of experiences in Red
Dead Redemption,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “The seamless
combination of breathtaking beauty and intense action, all woven together with
strong plotlines in a massive vibrant, rural environment is mind-blowing. We
think this game helps to push the limits of what an open-world gaming experience
can be.”

Utilizing Rockstar’s proprietary
Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE), Red Dead Redemption features an open-world
environment for players to explore, including frontier towns, rolling prairies
teaming with wildlife, and perilous mountain passes – each packed with an
endless flow of varied distractions. Along the way, players will experience the
heat of gunfights and battles, meet a host of unique characters, struggle
against the harshness of one of the world’s last remaining wildernesses, and
ultimately pick their own precarious path through an epic story about the death
of the Wild West and the gunslingers that inhabited it.

Red Dead Redemption will be
available in fall 2009 for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 consoles. For more
