PSA: Red Dead Redemption now available on Xbox One with free multiplayer DLC

The day we've all been waiting for is finally here. No - not a sequel to Red Dead Redemption, but we guess this is just as good, right?

Red Dead Redemption can now be played on the Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption’s availability on Xbox One through its Xbox 360 backwards compatibility feature has been a long time coming. The game suddenly became available earlier this year, although Microsoft took it down, saying it was released “in error.”

Then, fans of the western third-person shooter were surprised to hear not only was the game’s support on the Xbox One coming, but it would be made available later this week. As a result, sales of the game spiked on Amazon, showing fans of the game were preparing for the big day when they could play the game on their Xbox One.

To make today’s news even more sweet, all of Red Dead Redemption’s multiplayer DLC are currently free on the Xbox Marketplace. Hold your horses, zombie hunters. The Undead Nightmare Pack is still listed at its full $9.99 price.

While we know the weather will most likely be quite lovely this weekend, and family and friends might want you to go out and make fun Summer memories, we recommend you fight that urge and spend the next two days getting reacquainted with John Marston.
