Rockstar's Red Dead Revolver has been re-released on PlayStation 4 and is available to download now through the PlayStation Store. The game is priced $14.99 and features "full 1080p up-rendered" visuals.
On top of the upgraded graphics, the PS4 version supports features such "Trophies, Shareplay, Remote Play, Activity Feeds and Second Screen support for game manuals with PS Vita or PS App."
Red Dead Revolver was originally released for PlayStation 2 and Xbox in 2004. It started life as a Capcom title, but Rockstar purchased the rights when it acquired Angel Studios, the team that would go on to become Rockstar San Diego.
A follow-up, the highly acclaimed Red Dead Redemption, was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in May 2010. It is not playable on PlayStation 4 but was added to list of titles supported by Xbox One backwards compatibility in July.
In May, Take-Two, Rockstar's parent company, said it will announce new games "soon," but that none of these will be out until April 2017 at the very earliest.
Although Red Dead Redemption 2 has not been announced in any official capacity, a map from a possible Red Dead Redemption 2 leak appeared online earlier this year. Take-Two also previously said the Red Dead franchise is considered a "permanent" one by Take-Two.
In GameSpot's Red Dead Revolver review the game earned a 7.3: "Its heart is in the right place, but Red Dead Revolver tries to go in too many directions at once," said Ryan Davis. "There are too many different playable characters and too many unique gameplay elements that just don't gel. And though the story is well told, there's just not enough focus on Red.
"If you can forgive Red Dead Revolver for its hubris, you'll find a game with some great style and enough fun moments to justify the rough edges. It may not have what it takes to bring about a full-fledged Western revival in the world of video games, but it's an honest try."
