“Red Dead Redemption,” as well as its Halloween zombie expansion, “Undead Nightmare,” will be available via Sony’s full-game streaming service. The news is just confirmation of Rockstar Games’ promise during their big announcement for “Red Dead Redemption 2.” The company had announced that the original game would be released via PlayStation Now. Which, for this period, is good news for Windows players.

The original RDR game was never available on the PC as it was released only for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010, which is why thousands of gamers have demanded that the upcoming title be compatible for Windows. At least for now, PC players can explore the world of John Marston in a new platform, albeit still from PlayStation.

Meanwhile, Xbox One owners have been able to relive “Red Dead Redemption” for quite a while now. The console manufacturer announced that the title had joined its Backwards Compatibility Library in July. Likewise, there is an Xbox One feature that allows Xbox One games to be streamed via Windows 10 devices, thereby giving PC players another way to experience the game.
