Red Dead Redemption and its zombie-horror companion, Undead Nightmare, are coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch this summer. This is the first time that Rockstar Games’ classic Western epic will be available these modern consoles — including the PlayStation 5 thanks to backwards compatibility.

Notably, this release will not include an updated PC or Xbox experience. This isn’t too surprising as Red Dead Redemption is already available on these platforms — the main game and Undead Nightmare are available separately on the Microsoft Store.

Double Eleven Studios converted the titles for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. In addition to porting the game, the studio also added support for new languages. These include Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Korean, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian and Latin American Spanish.

Both new players and original fans will be able to purchase these titles through the Nintendo Switch eShop and PlayStation Store starting August 17, 2023. Physical copies of the combo arrive later this year on October 13. Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare will be $49.99.
