Game Information

Red Dead Redemption is a 2010 Western action-adventure game developed by Rockstar San Diego and published by Rockstar Games for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The second second title in the Red Dead series after 2004's Red Dead Revolver, it is set during the decline of the American Frontier in the year 1911 and follows John Marston, a former outlaw whose wife and son are taken hostage by the government in ransom for his services as a hired gun. Having no other choice, Marston sets out to bring the three members of his former gang to justice.

The game is played in an open world environment, a fictionalized version of the Western United States and Mexico, primarily by horseback and on foot. Gunfights emphasize a gunslinger gameplay mechanic called "Dead Eye" that allows players to mark multiple shooting targets on enemies in slow motion. The game makes use of a morality system, by which the player's actions in the game affect their character's levels of honor and fame and how other characters respond to the player. An online multiplayer mode is included, allowing up to 16 players to engage in both cooperative and competitive gameplay.

Upon its release, Red Dead Redemption was critically acclaimed, with many praising directed at its visuals, dynamically-generated music, voice acting, gameplay, and story. The game has shipped over 15 million copies and is widely considered one of the best games of all time.

Several DLC additions were released; Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, later released as a standalone game, added a new single-player experience in which Marston searches for a cure for an infectious zombie plague that has swept across the Old West. A Game of the Year Edition containing all additional content was released in October 2011. A sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2, was released in 2018.
