Rockstar Games Announces Release Date for Red Dead
Rockstar Games is proud to announce that Red Dead Redemption,
the successor to 2004’s hit Red Dead Revolver, will be available on the Xbox 360
and the PlayStation 3 on April 27, 2010 in North America and on April 30, 2010
“This is our vision of the American West: beautiful, bloody
and action-packed. The game is a true epic, and has been developed with the same
production values and attention to detail we put into all our projects,” said
Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “Red Dead Redemption represents another
milestone for us in the development of open world games."
Red Dead Redemption recreates the American West at the turn of
the 20th century: a violent and turbulent time of rapid growth and change.
Players become the partially reformed outlaw John Marston; blackmailed by the
government, his family threatened as he is forced to traverse the vast and
unforgiving expanses of the Western frontier in search of members of his former
gang. In a dangerous world full of opportunistic criminals, corrupt officials
and settlers battling the elements in a struggle to survive, Marston’s journey
takes him from the dusty and lawless frontier to the civilized towns of the
North, and down into a Mexico on the brink of a full-scale civil war.
Developed by Rockstar San Diego in conjunction with Rockstar
North, Red Dead Redemption is built on the internally developed Rockstar
Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) and Natural Motion’s Euphoria physics featured in
Grand Theft Auto IV and Midnight Club: Los Angeles for an unprecedented level of
realism and atmosphere.
