The first Red Dead Redemption, which surfaced in 2010 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (with even Xbox One X enhancements nowadays), never hit the PC.
Now, with a fan-made project, it might be playable on PC eventually, but we have to point out that it is not made directly by Rockstar Games, as it is a fan-made idea. The project is called Red Dead Redemption: Damned Enhancement Project, made by DamnedDev, who revealed his work on the GTAForums. The code is based on the emulated Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, as both consoles have emulators on PC by now. (Xenia for Xbox 360, RPCS3 for PlayStation 3.)
The plan is to improve the textures’ quality, upscale the user interface and the HUD to a higher resolution, and to remove some effects that Rockstar put into the game to make it run on the seventh-gen consoles. If the project gets to the end, it might even see the frame rate improved. A mod, which is in an early state, is already up and running, and it might be released to the public in December. The dev needs help to make Red Dead Redemption: Damned Enhancement Project completed, though.
The project does not contain Red Dead Redemption, so you have to get a copy of the game for yourself (no matter which console) – DamnedDev says that it’s a way to avoid Rockstar and Take-Two to knock on his doors. However, we think that it won’t be enough, as the publisher might still fire a cease-and-desist order towards his way, meaning the remaster project might stop… if only he stayed entirely silent until it was done.
