Rumor: Red Dead Gets A GotY Edition Next Month

It was easily one of the best games of last year. It also received quite a few flat-out Game of the Year awards.

So doesn't it deserve one of those fancy Game of the Year Editions? Well, according to a listing at the British Board of Film Classification (as cited by GamerZines), Rockstar's Western gem will indeed receive a GotY edition; it's actually slated to release on September 16. If the BBFC's listing was accurate, it might mean US gamers get it three days earlier; that seems to be the standard release trend across different regions. Also, the GotY edition should boast the Undead Nightmare add-on. If you missed out on one of the most accomplished and immersive titles of the generation, September may be the time to right that awfully grave wrong.

We also want to know if Rockstar plans to do another installment in the Red Dead series. We assume they will but we haven't heard anything concrete just yet.

Wonderful. I bought this Day1 off Amazon. Started a yummy relationship the same week and thus let a friend borrow it. Ended up breaking up with the sweetie and have yet to get the game returned to me (okay to be fair I still have one of his games too). And no World, the friend and the sweetie are not the same person!


If this is under $30 I'm buying it.

I've been wanting to try this game, especially with the undead nightmare and the appearance of the legendary sasquatch. Perhaps ill have to invest in the goty edition, sometime down the road that is. I'm down buying 60 dollar games for awhile after white knight 2. I went a little overboard recently with buying game related stuff.

So, I'm restricting myself.

Seems a bit late if you ask me, but at least this game deserves one. It was SO weird to me that Two Worlds II gave itself the honor of Game of the Year by releasing such an edition even though it wasn't ever a GOTY anywhere.

I hope they do make more from the RDR series, but I'd like to go a bit further back in time this time. 1910 is too late for a Western imo. And maybe find some way to make it a bit less... sparse.

It did in North America, but that doesn't mean it automatically gets to be game OF the year.

That's cool, but I'd rather just hunt down a copy of the Undead Nightmare retail disc than buying a new RDR. So sue me. Anyways, do want a new Red Dead, but not to be announced until Agent and GTA: Next are released!

whats the point?
the games been out for over a year, and the DLC for a few months.
so im pretty sure anyone interested in buying this has already done so, especially after all the praise, awards and such it has been receiving!
they should of done this for the DLC expansion pack.
at least then it would of made perfect sense, but now its just too late.
the DLC pack and game could probably be picked up for half the price of the GOTY edition!
the GTAIV full pack for instance, if i was to buy that it would be about 30 bucks more then if i bought everything seperatley.

A fine game and Nightmare is one of the best DLCs of a game I have played so far. I recommend to anyone who haven't played RDR yet, to get a copy of this GOTY edition.

I'd get a GotYE of RDR once it's on the cheap.

I'm more interested in a FO New Vegas GotYE. Course they have to finish release all the DLC digitally first.

I have to bring the 360 to school with me and leave the ps3 at home :(. But at least I could pick this up and replay it, not like there's any exclusives I could buy.

Guys like me stuck with auld Fatty PS3 with no room on the harddrive will be the majority takers likely. I'm on board ,but, proabably not immediately as this fall is already killing my gaming budget! I'm thinking of giving up my Diet Coke habit to help support my gaming addictions...
