Could we get a glimpse of Red Dead Redemption 2 at this year's E3? It's still one of this author's big predictions for next month's show, and while label Rockstar Games is remaining quiet, publishing overlord Take Two has hinted that we may hear more soon. Indeed, speaking as part of the firm's latest round of financial results, CEO...
Well. Earlier this week, there was a comical NeoGAF thread in which a poster claimed to have obtained the map from Red Dead Redemption 2. As is ever the case on the prolific message board, drama ensued, and the image was eventually removed. It didn't smell like a fake to us, but given the distinct lack of information, we passed on posting...
Cotton-eyed hope so
We'll probably all scream yee-haw when Red Dead Redemption 2 is announced – after all, the game's been in development since before the days that people spoke with exaggerated twangs and the main form of traversal was on horseback. A leaked Linked In profile has raised hopes for the title's imminent release, as a Rockstar...
BioShock? Borderlands? Take Two's going big
Take Two, the company in charge of 2K Games and Rockstar, has hinted that it will appear at E3 2016 in a "big way". Strauss Zelnick, the organisation's head honcho, teased the tidbit in the latest issue of MCV, stopping short of revealing which titles it will have on display. It currently has three games...
Red Dead Redemption may be as old as the hills, but the PlayStation 3 title continues to sell. Released all the way back in 2010, publisher Take-Two has announced that the Rockstar San Diego developed escapade has just crossed the 14 million units milestone. These are shipped numbers, but are still outrageously impressive. A sequel has...
Straight to the Wild, Wild West
It's been a whopping five years since John Marston... Well, yeah, we won't spoil what happens – but you really should have played Red Dead Redemption by now. A sequel from Rockstar San Diego has always seemed likely, and fortunately, it looks like the studio's really knuckling down now with its next release...
Studio won't jump the gun
Outspoken industry analyst Michael Pachter doesn't believe that you'll be seeing a new Red Dead Redemption release on the PlayStation 4 anytime soon, despite publishing overlord Take Two's incessant hints. Speaking with Gaming Bolt, he suggested that developer Rockstar Games would have announce
Take Two boss Strauss Zelnick has trotted out a teensy tidbit regarding the future of Rockstar’s popular Red Dead Redemption franchise – chiefly, that the series won’t be hanging up its cowboy hat anytime soon. Chatting at the Cowen & Company Analyst conference earlier this week, the intelligent executive stressed that the firm...

Looks like Rockstar might have your back -- a Game Of The Year edition of Red Dead Redemption has popped up on the website of a British ratings board
Often developers stick the ol' Game Of The Year tag onto their popular game in order to get re-release onto store shelves, but in the case of Red Dead Redemption it's totally warranted — we gave the game our coveted best of 2010 award at the end of..
Red Dead Redemption is set to get one final DLC pack, Rockstar has announced
The "Myths & Mavericks" pack is due out in September for the lowly fee of nada, and will bring with it a few "fan-favourite" character skins, as well as new arenas for Deathmatch, Gang, Grab the Bag and "other popular online modes".
There's a bizarre omission in last night's BAFTA results: Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption is nowhere to be seen
It wasn't even a nomination in fact. Why is that? According to the BAFTA's chief operation officer, Kevin Price, it's because Rockstar didn't enter. "We dont have the right to automatically enter a videogame, he said. We...
We only just finished Mass Effect 2 due to the game's timed exclusivity period on XBOX 360, but we got to the end just in time to see what all the fuss is about

We nearly called it and then we were like, nah, too crazy. Who'd have thought Call Of Duty: Black Ops would become the UK's best selling game of 2010? Our money was on the Nintendo Wii's Just Dance. We were close. That came in second. But blimey. Black Ops — crazy that. Gran Turismo 5 fared pretty well, coming third on the PlayStation 3 chart, while Red Dead Redemption and FIFA 11..
What better way to spend it than shooting up the undead in Red Dead Redemption's new Undead Nightmare pack?

PlayStation Plus is the gift that keeps giving
Honestly, we totally get why people are against it, and at the end of the day that's fine; it's a completely optional service, either you want it or you don't. But with yesterday's Killzone 3 beta and today's 20% discount on the Red Dead Redemption DLC we'd already planned to buy, it all starts to add...
We know that Red Dead Redemption's "Undead Nightmare" pack is a big deal
The sheer number of emails we've had from Rockstar PR confirm that much. But is this the first case of DLC being promoted on TV? Did the GTAIV DLC get the same treatment? Either way - it's kinda mad.
Another Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer
Seriously, every day. But the trailers have been consistently good, so we just keep on posting them. Today's trickle-feed of info reveals the pack's new multiplayer co-op mode. It's basically horde mode with zombies. Lots of zombies. The more they pack into this DLC, the more worthwhile it gets. We're all over this when it launches for $9.99..
Today's Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer features weapons and zombies and stuff
What more do you want us to say, we're having to come up with "insightful" captions for this DLC pack every day now. Feel free to come up with your own. We're spark out.
"They creep," the melodramatic narrator reveals
"They crawl." This Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer is all about grindhouse. Which is a good thing because you honestly can't beat a bit of classic horror. The DLC add-on's due October 26th. It's going to be amazing.
The awesome looking horror extension to Rockstar San Diego's open-world westerner Red Dead Redemption is set to drop in time for Hallowe'en the publisher's confirmed

Rockstar's sent us a few more screens of Red Dead Redemption's upcoming Undead Nightmare DLC pack
We still think this looks fantastic. We're looking forward to blasting some brains presumably when the pack launches closer to Hallowe'en.</em>
Rockstar's announced some new freebie DLC for their hit Westerner Red Dead Redemption
The new Hunting & Trading Outfits pack is due out on October 12th and will add two previously unreleased costumes to the game, aswell as a couple of new challenges. The costumes will also add benefits when worn - such as halving the costs at any gunsmith and allowing the player to carry more animal skins. In..
Zombies are so bloody divisive right now
People love them but hate them at the same time. See, because we all love zombies so much, game developers have decided to put them in everything. And that's pissing some people off. We reckon people should get over it. Yes, it would be nice to see something different from time to time, but whatever. We can't...
We get it
Zombies are in virtually every piece of entertainment these days and it's getting a bit old. We agree. But look, there's still a place for zombies if they are done well. And this Red Dead Redemption "Undead Nightmare" pack gets more appealing to us by the day. We're due a trailer soon but, honestly, we're already sold.
Rockstar's released this piece of artwork for Red Dead Redemption's upcoming Undead Nightmare DLC pack
It's got a pretty cool vibe to it don'tchathink? We like the colours. We're expecting more information on the expansion this week. For now, this'll have to whet your appetite.</em>

The pack, which is set to bring zombies to the Westerner, will mostly contain single-player content, and will see protagonist John Marston trying to find a cure for highly infectious zombie plague that has spread across the frontier. The pack will...
We really enjoyed Mafia II; despite its flaws it definitely deserves to be played
So it's nice to see the game light-up the UK sales charts and finish up with the "biggest UK launch" accolade since Red Dead Redemption fourteen weeks ago. Take-Two won't mind, seeing as they published both games. According to Chart-Track, 41 percent of the...
Excited about jumping back into Red Dead Redemption once more? Well Rockstar's gone and put a date on the next DLC pack - entitled "Liars & Cheats"

According to a report on ShowBizSpy, Brad Pitt's being lined up to play John Marston in a movie adaptation of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption
Yup, a movie based on a video game based on movies. No studio's been named in connection to the movie, but apparently Pitt's name is first on the list for the part. Rockstar claims the report's just a rumour, but we reckon they're telling fibs. A Red Dead..
Rockstar's vowed to crack down on Red Dead Redemption hackers starting August 24th
The publisher's detected players that are using hacked game saves, and plans to swiftly eliminate all the associated PSN IDs from the game. If you're using a hacked save, you have 24-hours to delete it and you will not be affected by the ban. Aren't Rockstar nice. Don't worry if you've used XP exploits within the..
It's the first release after a month long drought, and it's been heavily marketed; Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days might not be the blockbuster it could have been, but it's certainly been released at the right time. And that's helped the game jump straight to the top of the UK sales charts, pissing all over the competition (Kane & Lynch...
Disney Interactive's Toy Story 3 is still top of the UK sales charts
That's despite a surge of interest in Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption, which jumped back into second position from fifth. Elsewhere, there's plenty of life-style toff for the Nintendo platforms (what the heck is Art Academy!?) and the usual first-person shooter suspects in Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The full..
If you're still not sure whether you want to drop $9
99 / £7.99 on the latest Red Dead Redemption DLC, then Rockstar's sent us this little trailer to get you hyped. While the pack looks good, the price seems a smudge expensive for what it is. However, we still have plenty of goodwill aimed in Rockstar's direction because of the free co-op pack, so we'll probably bite for that reason. Hopefully the..
Rockstar's released the latest title update for their hit Western shooter, Red Dead Redemption
The update deals mostly with alleviating griefing in its various forms. There are also a number of fixes for known bugs — including geometry issues and the removal of downloadable costumes from the player's inventory. We've included the full list of changes after the jump. Remember, the Legends &..

The new screens from Red Dead Redemption's upcoming "Legends & Killers" pack might not offer much more information about the game's upcoming premium DLC -- but at least we know it'll involve fat banditos armed to the teeth with dynamite
Rockstar may aswell have our tenner now.
The wild west may be an appropriate place for liars and cheats, but Rockstar's having none of it in their smash-hit open-world title Red Dead Redemption
A post over on Rockstar's official blog notes that the company are aware of "a few rotten apples" and are actively working on new features to counter against the isolated incidents of abuse that go on. The post goes on to declare that..
The American NPD numbers are in, and they paint a particularly pretty picture for hardware sales after May's disappointment
Both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable were up nearly 100%, shifting 305,000 and 121,000 units respectively. The XBOX 360 lead the home console charts thanks to the rejigged system re-release, though it still lost out to Nintendo's DS which continues to chug along in..
I just don't get it
As a reviewer, I can see the positives and negatives in every game I play. But on a personal level, I just don't get multiplayer shooters. I'm talking about the games that have Team Deathmatch as the default game-mode — your Modern Warfare 2s, Medal Of Honors and even Uncharted 2s. I've always questioned whether I truly have...
50 hours and counting
We're only just starting to get into the multiplayer, but we've passed the two-day mark in Red Dead Redemption. Things could end up very messy before this year is out. We're thinking 100 hours is not out of the question. Especially now Rockstar's detailed their future DLC plans for Red Dead Redemption. The first update's due in...
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is spending its second week top of the UK all-formats chart, keeping Westerner Red Dead Redemption just behind in second

The NPD results are in for the month of May, and they're painting a particularly pleasant picture for fans of Westerns
Red Dead Redemption managed to shift 1.5 million copies in the US across both the PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360, with a decent proportion of sales (567k) coming off the PlayStation SKU. UFC Undisputed 2010 was the other PlayStation 3 game listed in the top ten, managing to shift 192k..
