It was announced on online news series Inside Xbox earlier this week that some of our favourite 360 games would be getting a fresh new make-over. One of which is Rockstar Games‘ Red Dead Redemption, which released back in 2010. Eight years later and we can once again enjoy playing through this gritty western as everyone’s favourite cowpoke, John Masrston, in stunning 4K resolution – that’s four times the resolution as HD if you’re wondering.
Red Dead Redemption was already an exceptionally beautiful game when it first released, but you haven’t truly experienced how stunning this game is until you see it at native 4K. Armadillo has never looked dustier, the Great Plains have never been as jaw-dropping, and Marston himself has never looked so gruff. Check out this gameplay video for yourself below.
If you still have your copy of the game lying around along with an Xbox One X, then this you have to see it to believe it. Likewise, if you own a One X but never picked up a copy of Read Dead, you can do so now from the Microsoft Store for £24.99. Of course, if you don’t own a 4K display, the Wild West will still look even better with supersampling.
Other older games getting the enhanced treatment are Portal 2, Gears of War 2 (which includes all DLC for free), Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Sonic Generations which can all be played from disc or purchased digitally. Microsoft also announced the arrival of 19 original Xbox games to the backwards compatible programme which include the likes of Destroy All Humans and the original Star Wars: Battlefront games.
