Red Dead Redemption gets Game of the Year Edition

Rockstar open-world Western for Xbox 360 and PS3 gets $50 compilation with all DLC October 11 in North America, October 14 internationally.

Earlier today, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick provided investors with insight into the downloadable content support for Red Dead Redemption, revealing it to be part calculated and part improvised after the open-world Western's May 2010 launch. The publisher followed that up today by announcing what is likely the final phase of the plan: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year editions featuring every scrap of paid and free DLC for the game.

Red Dead Redemption was GameSpot's pick for 2010 Game of the Year.

Set for release October 11 in North America and October 14 internationally, the comprehensive edition of Red Dead Redemption will sell for $50 and include the core game with a new "hardcore" single-player mode, the Undead Nightmare zombie-infested add-on campaign and multiplayer modes, all preorder and postrelease content packs, and the formerly PS3-exclusive Solomon's Folly single-player gang hideout and challenges.

Red Dead Redemption follows former outlaw John Marston as he attempts to track down some of his former partners in crime at the behest of government agents who have taken his family captive. Undead Nightmare features its own storyline, with an undead plague sweeping across the frontier and Marston charged with finding a cure.

i just hope this gives way for a decent online community again, i need multiplayer trophys and its a bit hard to do with nobody online... not sure its worth 50bucks though...its astounding but a ten dollar flucuation really can make or break a games sales. slap 40 as a price tag and i know it would sell faster at least.

Where is PC version, GWWWWWOOOOOOOAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! Seriously, and this should be $40 bucks max, game has been out a year and a half and this only contains 1 paid for DLC as far as I can tell.

The full game, along with all of the DLC and a new hardcore mode seems like a really good deal for that price. The box art looks nice as well. All it needs now is a PC version. PC owners need to experience this masterpiece.

Yes! This is what I've been waiting for. I never got around to playing this game and I knew they would come out with a GOTY version - so now I will check it out (If I can fit it into this the rest of this year's schedule :S)

@Rsoub Noire is one hell of a different game friend. if you can conceive it as (and enjoy) a VERY well made interactive movie, dripping with style, grit and realism, then yes do treat yourself. it's definitely not a gun-toting adventure. but really rewards the player who endeavors to succeed.

yesterday's new DLC rules. some FIERCE maps for shootouts. my only wish was maybe a level cap extension... I've kind of lost the same (obsessive I admit) incentive I had now that my guns sparkle and I've hit the last legendary. I do truly believe that this game, and it's multiplayer element has so much more life and playability left in it than it's tops level achievements. one of rockstar's true greats. if you've not got it yet, DO SO

@krelmmaster Thats a good point,a straight answer would be really nice,and I really hope it would be YES.But even if it was NO,I would at least stop hoping for the game release.

Westerns are "Awesome", I would like some Game developer to make a western for PC if not Rock Star Games, I'm all into westerns, PC gamer here!

Make high quality games with a good replayability and you won't be affected by people trading their games in as much. Developers largely have themselves to blame when preowned sales of their product goes sky high.

Lol, should have been obvious that they would release something like this so too bad for those getting miffed. I wanted to play the game but wasn't too bothered at the time, now that this is coming out I will probably pick it up

If this game was coming out on the PC I'll buy it 100%, I still play GTA IV on PC and had no problems :D I hear L.A. Noire is coming to PC (cool) just bring this game to PC as well :D

I loved this game, but I was extremely disappointed that all of the DLC were multiplayer bonuses and didn't flollow the same example as EFLC with GTAIV.

Rockstar and Epic don't like the PC :S I would love to buy their games if they would just convert them, but saying that they tend to release broken ports on the PC. Broken!

That's great Rockstar...now are you going to stop ignoring PC gamers and give us a god damn answer already - PC version, Yes or No? It's a simple question Rockstar, please answer it.
