Red Dead Redemption coming to Xbox One via backward compatibility later this week

Fans of Red Dead Redemption have been hoping - well, more like praying - that a sequel would be coming to Rockstar's popular Western. Well, we aren't getting a sequel (yet), but we may have the next best thing.

Rockstar has announced that Red Dead Redemption will be added to Xbox One's backward compatability list oin July 8. Yep, that's this Friday. If you own the game for the Xbox 360, you will be able to play it on the Xbox One, no matter which version of the game you own, including Undead Nightmare and the GotY Edition.

And if you don;t have the game and want to see what all the fuss is about, Rockstar said that at the same time, you will be able to buy RDR at the same time.

Thanks, Rockstar. Now give us Red Dead 2.
