Red Dead Redemption is getting a re-release. And sorry, Windows users--it's not the long-demanded PC port. Red Dead Redemption "Game of the Year" Edition is coming to North America on October 11th for PS3 and Xbox 360. As expected, this "definitive edition" includes all the additional content created for the game, including today's free "Myths and Mavericks" pack. The GOTY Edition includes a "brand-new hardcore single-player mode," for those of you wanting a bit more of a challenge and the following add-ons:
  • Undead Nightmare
  • Liars and Cheats
  • Hunting and Trading Outfits
  • Outlaws to the End
  • Myths and Mavericks

In addition, the GOTY Edition also includes all content available as pre-order bonuses, such as the Deadly Assassin outfit, War Horse, and the Golden Guns Weapon pack. The formerly PS3-exclusive Solomon's Folly gang hideout and challenges will also be included for the first time on the Xbox 360. "We wanted to create a world that captured the spirit of the Western," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "We are thrilled that Red Dead Redemption's vision of the West resonated with so many people." The Game of the Year Edition will be available for $49.99.

          Not like this game though. Call of Juarez doesn't come close. :)

            are the CoJ games any good though? I've always wanted to play them, I picked up the second game yesterday on steam for 5 bucks but I would like to play the first one before

              I didn't play the first one, but bound in blood is enjoyable if you're looking for a western. not great, not bad, just ok. the duels take some getting used to

              Yeah. I noticed that. Twitchy fingers I guess or too much alcohol when I created it. :D

        There is a second free DLC coming out this week.

      Sweet, this is the version of the game i've been waiting on. Though, it's going to be hard to justify the purchase with everything else out before the holidays.

      Would this game even transfer well to a PC? Something tells me the controls would be extremely frustrating.

        Would be the same as GTA4 for the most part.

        Just use a 360 control then. Problem solved.

        It would be a hell of a lot better free-aiming with the mouse. I disliked how the snap-to auto-aim was like having an insta-kill button, but trying to aim with analog sticks is even worse.

        Anyway, the GOTY edition explains why they've not released it for PC yet (they're not done milking the consoles), so hopefully the port will show up some months after that arrives.

          Gunfights on horseback would be vastly improved with a mouse for free aim and keyboard to continue motion and direction. On the console you have to take your thumb off the "kick" / make horse go / A button to aim with the stick so you are always slowing down when trying to shoot and the bad guys inevitably fly right past you like some sort of silly top gun braking maneuver. Really annoying!

          In general everything about the combat would be better if you don't like the snap-to aiming. Even with expert aim mode on a gamepad, the game still has auto-aim in the form of magic bullets. You only need your crosshair near an enemy or animal rather than over it to hit it, it's incredibly cheap. They could get rid of that entirely on the PC and make accuracy count.

          Yeah, I still find modern console control schemes to be frustrating. I still prefer my mouse+keyboard for almost everything.

        September 14, 2011 5:58 AM

        I'd say it would control even better with a mouse.

      Any details on the Hardcore Mode? Is it just a tougher enemies + collect 100000 flowers type of deal?


      And curse these flipin' GOTY editions! Makes me not want to buy games on initial release. :(

      Having played this on 360 I'd like a cheap DLC of the hardcore mode and Solomon's Folly plus Challenges without having to re buy it as GOTY when I have all other DLC already.

      GAMERS BEWARE:

      NYC-TERROR-WALI is the second account of a cheater on Red Dead Redemption for the Playstation 3. He uses a modified controller with rapid fire and several glitches that will freeze your Playstation. If anyone knows the main PSN username for NYC-TERROR-WALI post it to warn others about his hacking.

      The Playstation 3 is full of cheaters. In just about every multiplayer match on Red Dead Redemption, MW2, or Call of Duty Black Ops you will find someone using a modified controller, aimbot, rapid fire, glitches, and several other hardware and software hacks. These are some of the known cheaters on PS3.
