Red Dead Redemption 2 Gets Timed Exclusive Content on PS4

Red Dead Redemption 2 Gets Timed Exclusive Content on PS4

A teaser trailer, exclusive PS4 content, and you can finally play the original Red Dead Redemption.

Sony and Rockstar have announced a partnership for the newly-trailed Red Dead Redemption 2, in which PS4 players get first access on "select online content". The original Red Dead Redemption will also be playable on PS4, too.

It was confirmed via a short post on the Playstation Blog: "The game's vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience. We are pleased to announce that PS4 players get first access to earn select online content in the vast open world of Red Dead Redemption 2."

This sounds a bit like the existing and highly successful agreement Sony made with Activision for Destiny, which has continued into the game's second year. The wording is a lot more cautious here, though, which suggests that PS4 players will get first dibs on some stuff rather than the generous year-long lead that Destiny PS4 has over Xbox One.

The company also announced that the original Red Dead Redemption will be be playable on PS4 "soon" care of Playstation Now. Which means you can finally play it on PC too.

Red Dead Online will be a huge success if GTA is anything to go by. GTA Online remains enormously profitable for Rockstar, to the point where it cancelled its single-player DLC plans in favour of adding new online content. GTA Online has brought in well over half a billion dollars in revenue.

The game is expected to release in fall 2017.
