Because of PlayStation Now streaming, gamers using their PCs or PlayStation 4 could play Rockstar’s “Red Dead Redemption” when the developer releases it on Tuesday, Dec. 6. It would be the first time that PC users, who had been clamoring for the game for years, to finally play the western action adventure video game.

Also to be made available through PlayStation Now streaming on PC and PS4 is “Undead Nightmare,” the PS3 version of “Red Dead Redemption.” The release comes with a new, zombie-themed campaign and Horde-style multiplayer mode, according to GameSpot.

450 Other Titles On PS Now Streaming

Although Rockstar released “Red Dead Revolver” in November, it was “Red Dead Redemption” that gamers had been asking the studio. But PlayStation Now is only in North America, the UK, Belgium and The Netherlands. To access the game and 450 other titles, players must pay $20 monthly, or $45 for three months, to gain access to “Red Dead Revolver,” Engadget reports.

In 2017, Rockstar would release “Red Dead Redemption 2” on PS4 and Xbox One. While waiting for its release, gamers initiated a petition on change.org to release on PC the upcoming “amazing game.” They want that the long denial of the original game to PC users would not be repeated when the developer releases “Red Dead Redemption 2” next year.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" Too

The number of signatures gathered has reached more than 46,500. It is just a few thousand away from the target 50,000 signatures. Rockstar has not commented on the petition, titled “Rockstar: Release ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ on PC,” or released any official statement on the matter, ParentHerald reports.

To whet the appetite of gamers, the studio had already published the much-anticipated trailer of “Red Dead Redemption 2” on YouTube. Since the trailer’s release a month ago, the clip has close to 9 million views.
