A couple of days ago, Rockstar Games has released the first-ever gameplay footage of the upcoming game, Red Dead Redemption 2. Now, the developer revealed that the game is going to run in 4K on the PlayStation 4, confirming the assumption of most players.
The announcement was revealed via the PlayStation Blog after Sony posted the six-minute gameplay footage of Red Dead Redemption 2. The video was captioned saying, “Captured entirely from in-game footage on PlayStation 4 Pro, watch this introduction to Red Dead Redemption 2’s gameplay in 4K.”
Sony’s YouTube video of the gameplay trailer also showed the same caption. However, on Xbox’s YouTube channel, the caption was altered slightly saying, “Captured entirely from in-game footage, watch this introduction to Red Dead Redemption 2’s gameplay in 4K.”
The difference in the description from the YouTube channels of Sony and Microsoft would suggest that the video shown on all outlets were, in fact, the footage that was captured using the PlayStation 4 Pro running in 4K. In a statement to USgamer, Rockstar confirmed this to be true.
However, even though the gameplay footage we’ve seen was captured on the PlayStation 4 Pro, the official Xbox website confirms that the Xbox One X will also be able to run the game in 4K since the upcoming title is “Xbox One X Enhanced.”
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to release on October 26 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
