Last year when Rockstar released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition it was met with widespread criticism due to several technical issues and some questionable upgrades to the visuals. At the time it was rumoured that the studio was also looking to remaster the original Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto 4. As of now it looks like those plans are off the table.

With Kotaku, and known GTA leaker and insider Tez2, reporting that Rockstar won't be proceeding with these additional remasters. Instead, it will focus on the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto 6. Which has been confirmed to be in the works, but is probably still a while out from release.

According to the Kotaku report, which cites"sources with knowledge of Rockstar’s plans and future projects", GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption remasters aren't entirely “out of scope”. Though if they do come it will probably be after GTA 6 launches. Of the two, a Red Dead Redemption remaster would be of particularly high interest on the account of it not getting a PC release like its sequel.

Remember when the internet was all abuzz with the rumour that Rockstar were going to announce the new Red Dead game at E3? Even though historically, the studio has never really used E3 as a platform to announce anything. Yeah, we remember. Also there was that whole deal with that map. Anyway, a Korean site called Gamefocus is reporting that a remastered version of Red Dead Redemption is in the works for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Yeah, we're suckers for anything Red Dead.

If true, awesome. And as the report states that the announcement will be coming this week, possibly at the big PlayStation event we won't have to wait too long to find out if this is true.

But then again, with the game only recently hitting Xbox One backwards compatibility, it would be a little bit strange for 2K and Rockstar to do that and then announce a remaster.

You really don't need to know more than that. Well, okay, if you previously owned any version of the game: vanilla, Game of the Year Edition or Undead Nightmare, you'll have free access to it. If you're one of those who've never experienced it, you'll also be able to purchase it come Friday, too.

The game is available to purchase now ahead of its Friday release date and is only $12.50 AUD for the base game.

Here's a snippet from our review:
This is the ebb and flow of the game - it's organic because there are tools in place to constantly keep you preoccupied, but you're never tied to them. The decision to engage anything in Red Dead Redemption is yours and yours alone. But the tools in place are just so engaging and tantalising, you won't be able to resist, even if some of them repeat (there are a few game-world 'missions' you can do multiple times), and this is the beauty of what's at-hand.

I talked in great detail about the game-world ecology and Eco-system in my extended preview, and in the final build it's as solid as ever. Hunting Challenges and Survivalist Challenges can actually be challenging, not just distractions, and they also creep up as a partial mechanic to other missions, forcing you to double up on your collections, but generating even more engagement with the game-world around you. This is also important, because you're going to become intimate with every part of the vast land available to you (there are three main areas), so much so, that the brave even have the option of turning off the mini-map for true visual navigation and that perfect cinematic experience, and I find it hard to believe any true gunslinger of the West would ever get lost.

And it is cinematic. The scripting here is second-to-none, dwarfing anything the leads at Rockstar have ever written. Red Dead Redemption is brutal, gritty and wearing. The West was not a nice place or time to live in, but they've done a stellar job of making you feel like you need to make the most of it, and the characters you meet throughout your journey are all memorable and in place with the world around you. I found myself not wanting to finish the game's narrative for fear of finality, it's that engaging.
And yes we know this still doesn't fix the major problem of the game having never been on PC, and it's highly unlikely it ever will be at this stage, but this really is the next best thing. It might even be worth buying an Xbox One for, if you don't already have one.

A recent Rockstar Games blog post reveals that the publisher/developer is more than aware people are screaming out for a PC version of their much loved and critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption. But you shouldn't hold your breath for them to answer the call.
We do know that, yes, there is just one title absent from our PC release plans – that game of course being Red Dead Redemption, and of course we’re well aware that some fans have been asking for it. All we can say is that whenever it is viable (technically, developmentally and business-wise) for us to release a game for PC (or any other particular platform) – we will and we usually do; unfortunately, that is just not the case 100% of the time for all platforms.
The rest of the post goes on to say that Rockstar hopes Max and L.A. Noire will sate PC players, but somehow I just don't think it will.

Good news for Red Dead Redemption fans with today's announcement of the release of the Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack DLC:
This completely free Bonus Pack, a token of our appreciation for all the amazing Red Dead fans out there that have been playing the game since its release last year, injects a host of new fan-favorite characters from the single-player story into multiplayer, including legendary gunslinger Landon Ricketts, Deputies Eli and Jonah, Mexican Army Captain Vincente de Santa, outlaw Javier Escuella, rancher Drew MacFarlane, Native American informant Nastas and John Marston's weathered old ranchhand Uncle.

The Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack also features a bevy of new multiplayer locations, including Cochinay, Nekoti Rock and Beecher's Hope and more, along with new Stronghold games in Armadillo, Tumbleweed, and Chuparosa (a full list of locations is listed below). To check out some screens from the new pack, click here.
You can check out some screenshots from the new DLC on our game page.

Rockstar have clarified reports of a free DLC pack they'd mentioned was coming for Red Dead Redemption, revealing that it would be made available for Xbox 360 and PS3 this September.
Today we can confirm the title for you: the Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack will feature new fan-favorite multiplayer characters by popular demand (including a certain grizzled ol' gunslinger you can see here) as well as new multiplayer locations for players of Deathmatch, Grab the Bag, Gang matches and other popular online modes to get busy in.
This is good news for fans of the game, but it's sad there's been absolutely no movement on a PC iteration, despite most other Rockstar products eventually making their way to PC.

They also added for anyone wondering about Undead Overrun mode in multiplayer, that a patch releasing just before the new DLC would address that.

Everyone thought Red Dead Redemption's last DLC drop, Undead Nightmare, was going to be the proverbial pos-release nail in the coffin for RDR, but a recent Tweet from Rockstar suggests otherwise.

When asked by another Twitter user "Whens next Red Dead DLC coming out?" The team responded with a "Look for release date and details in the coming weeks". Obviously for those of us who've played the game through on any of the console this is good news, but for some reason there's just still no word on whether PC users will be riding across the dusty plains. L.A. Noire has already been confirmed for PC, while GTA 4 didn't take too long to get there either, but for RDR it looks more and more like it just won't happen.

Stay tuned for official details on this impending new Red Dead Redemption content.

Rockstar Games have sent along another new trailer for Undead Nightmare, the upcoming DLC expansion that introduces a zombie apocalypse to the old west in Red Dead Redemption.

Today's video is a launch trailer that in addition to providing an overview of the Undead Nightmare contents, also offers the first look at the Four Horses of the Apocalypse in action and a glimpse of a Sasquatch.

Check it our here on AusGamers.

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare is due on October 26 on the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network.

As promised, Rockstar will be introducing "mythical creatures" into their forthcoming single-player-centric DLC add on for Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare.

Today they've revealed the four horses of the apocalypse - War, Famine, Pestilence and Death. You can actually wrangle these horses in the game, and according to Rockstar they'll each have special powers, provided you can break them in.

More about the new content and more mythical creatures will be revealed in the coming days, counting down to its official October 26 release. Check out new screens of the horses right here, or click the thumbnails below.

We've been showing off screens for Red Dead Redemption's forthcoming DLC update, Undead Nightmare, over the past few weeks, but Rockstar have finally launched the pack's official trailer which reveals the single-player-centric content not only features Marston (though not sure how this works for those of us who've finished the game), but also other characters such as Seth, Sheriff Walton, Bonnie and more.

"I've seen husbands eatin' wives, mothers eatin' children," Marston proclaims in this trailer, which retains the feel of the original game, but offers up some seriously classic horror for good measure. The DLC will set you back 800 MS Points (AU$13) and $15.95 on PSN.

Rockstar San Diego must be proud of their upcoming single-player add-on for Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare; they haven't been this screenshot happy since the original game was still in hype mode.

And like the proverbial zombies we are, we eat up these images like so many freshly exposed (and yummy) brains. But in all seriousness, this new DLC is shaping up to be a bit of a winner, so here's a stack of new images for you to feast on.

Further to last week's trailer showing off the next bout of DLC headed to Red Dead Redemption in the form of the single-player "Undead Nightmare", Rockstar have also let loose a batch of screens showing off the game's clear focus on creating classic zombie lore tension with plenty of undead, and plenty of night time.

"Coming Very Soon" is the only indication of a release date Rockstar have given us yet, so be sure to stay tuned to AusGamers for more info as it becomes available. Click here for a direct link to the new screen, or click the thumbnails below.

Well, to be fair, it hasn't really died. It seems it just can't. Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption has seen more life injected into than any other Rockstar property post-release, and the latest is going to be the antithesis to that as Rockstar San Diego inject an unhealthy dose of dead in their popular title.

That's right, zombies have made their way into the wild, untamed west where Marston and co will have to fight more than just cattle rustlers, bank robbers and murderers. They're fighting a plague that has infected half the population, and even animals (zombie bears anyone?). This new single-player DLC will also feature an all-new location, mythical creatures and new weapons to deal with the whole mess.

Rockstar have sent through info regarding their next post-release update for Red Dead Redemption, this time focusing on expanding the Free Roam portion of the game, along with competitive multiplayer.
The Liars and Cheats Pack will also include the content previously announced as the Free Roam Pack. The Free Roam Pack was originally planned as a free download, but due to the platform networks' restrictions on numbers of free packs we can give away (and our promise to bring you the free Hunting and Trading Outfits Pack – more on that below), we have instead added it to the Liars and Cheats Pack as one Free Roam release boasting the following features and more:
  • Multiplayer Poker and Liar's Dice Games - One of the most fan-requested features comes to multiplayer
  • Multiplayer Horse Races - Ride out against your friends and foes online - with mounted combat guns blazing
  • The Explosive Rifle - A devastatingly destructive new weapon with its own new single-player and multiplayer challenges
  • 7 New Gang Hideouts - Posse up and take on the new Hideouts together to level up quickly
  • 4 New Hunting Grounds - New Hunting Grounds are now visible on the map for all to see, with some of the most action-packed wildlife hunting yet
  • Stronghold Competitive Multiplayer Mode - Teams take turns in attack and defense in multi-tiered Competitive games
  • Posse Scoring and Leaderboards - Compare stats with other posses and compete to see who are the kings of the Free Roam frontier
You'll also see 15 new faces available in multiplayer with characters pulled from the narrative. This pack will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 21 for AU$15.95 and 800 MS Points (around $13), respectively.

Nothing official has trickled down any affiliated line, but according to ShowbizSpy, Brad Pitt has been offered first refusal of the lead role of John Marston in a big screen adaptation of Rockstar's uber-successful Red Dead Redemption.

"This is an exciting project with a great character at the centre of it," the site claims a source close to the project said. "The idea is to make this in the style of an epic Western movie but with a few modern touches."

I could actually see him in that role, but overall, I'm just not sure the game itself warrants a movie. What do you think?

We have the official trailer for the Red Dead Redemption "Legends and Killers" DLC pack now up for your viewing pleasure, right here on AusGamers.

If you haven't been following this content release, Rockstar will give players new multiplayer locations, a host of new weapons including the Tomahawk (which looks pretty damn awesome), battles in Blackwater, Thieves Landing, Rio Bravo and more along with new playable characters pulled right from the virtual world of the original Red Dead Revolver.

This is the first DLC of a large list, trickling out over the next few months, and is available now from Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network.

"A lot of sessions are trying to serve a song," says percussionist Davey Chegwidden of working on the Red Dead Redemption soundtrack. "Whereas this is trying to come up with an emotion."

Rockstar today let loose even more post-release Red Dead propaganda, though this developer diary is likely going to get music aficionados very excited as we go behind the scenes for the music composed for Rockstar San Diego's epic Western opus, with an in-depth look at the myriad crazy instruments brought on board (some truly bizarre) along with the uber-talented peeps.

The best parts are watching harmonica legend Tommy Morgan. Check it out embedded below.

Red Deaders out there will likely remember the mood-shifting moment in Red Dead Redemption once you took out the Mexican Border Patrol (ah, the irony) and started your way into the game's second part, as highlighted by the haunting "Far Away", a track by Jose Gonzalez written exclusively for the game.

In typical Rockstar fashion, milking each and every release for as much cultural pull as possible (and why not, really), they've filmed Jose performing the song live from the Rockstar New York offices' rooftop, which you can check out embedded below. It's short and sweet, but the film quality is top-notch, and this is really a great song to end your Thursday on.

Check it out and let us know if you're familiar with Jose's other work.

There's a fair bit of cheating going on in the online world of Red Dead Redemption - so much so it's caught the attention of Rockstar Games who're addressing the situation both in the form of an update for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as well as a set of new rules.
We'd just like to let all fans and players of Red Dead Redemption Multiplayer know that we're aware a few rotten apples persist in the online world, trying to make the experience unpleasant for everyone else. Obviously, these Multiplayer modes can be great fun when everyone is on the up-and-up, so to ensure we preserve the integrity of gameplay for all online, we are actively working on new features to counter against the isolated incidents of abuse that go on.
If you're caught haxing the game, you can be banned for a "period of our [Rockstar] discretion", while anyone being bullied in Free Roam any time they spawn in, will now be given a choice of spawn locations, and anyone who generates a six-kill streak while in Free Roam will become "Most Wanted", which will alert other players and NPC lawmen that they're a "player-killer".

It's great to see the team are handling the situation with aplomb, and aren't simply ignoring cheating mechanics, like a few other games recently.

"Expect that we'll continue to monitor the lay of the land and fight the good fight via future title updates," Rockstar posted on their site. "To make sure everyone's multiplayer experience is as fair and as fun as can be."
