Red Dead Revolver Gets a Gorgeous, Unreal Engine 5 Remake
It’s easy to forget about it since Rockstar Games doesn’t talk about it. Red Dead Red Revolver is a genuinely under-appreciated gem.
The release of an action-adventure game in the Wild West, smaller than the Rockstar released six years ago, was a welcome surprise.
Red Dead Redemption’s Red Dead Revolver is essentially what Demon’s Souls were to Dark Souls. It’s more like a prototype version of what was to follow than an actual entry into the main series. Redemption has no impact on Revolver. The plot and events of the 2004 game are not officially considered canon.
Revolverisn’t as good as Redemption and Redemption, but it is a fascinating piece of Rockstar history that you should check out. This is why I am happy to direct you to the Unreal Engine demo that finally shows Revolver the respect it deserves.
The below video was created by Youtuber Teaserplay and shows the original Red Dead game in a completely new way. It is breathtaking.
Although it is unlikely that Red Dead Revolver will ever be remade, there are rumours that Rockstar will make a remake using Red Dead Redemption 2’s engine.
Am I going to play a game I have played more than a dozen times just because the graphics are nice? Yes. Yes, I am. Because we are all suckers, I am willing to bet you will.
