Rumour has it that Red Dead Redemption (1) will get a remake in 2022, and Rockstar will use Red Dead Redemption 2 engine for it. With GTA V getting yet another remaster soon, nothing is impossible.
A new rumour about the remake of the first Red Dead Redemption game has surfaced on the Internet . As usual, when it comes to these things, it is recommended to be considered a rumour, because it is.
Below are the key highlights that RDR Remake should have, and it is rumoured that it will use the RDR2 engine, which would make it a true remake, not a remaster.
- Spring release
- The same map seen in RDR2 (epilogue) + Mexico, to the same standard
- The story is the same although there are slight additions to dialogue that reference Arthur
- Gunplay and combat now using the RDR2 mechanics
- Updated physics
- Native 4K resolution
- Ray-traced reflections and shadows
- 30fps fidelity mode
- 60fps performance mode
- All DLC included
- PS5, XSX, PC (Windows)
- No online mode in the remaster
What caught everyone's eye is "no online mode", and we know that Rockstar likes to milk the online portion of the game to exhaustion, so we wonder how it will monetize this release then? What we don't like is the 30fps fidelity mode. Playing in 30 frames per second in the year 2022 is such a fashion no-no. Ray-tracing or not.
Red Dead Redemption was a 10/10 good game back in the day, and we would like this to be true, but until we get an official announcement, we will take this as usual - with a HUGE grain of salt.
