New York, NY – December 1, 2009 – Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two
Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce that Red Dead
Redemption, the successor to 2004’s hit Red Dead Revolver, will be available on
the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the
PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system on April 27, 2010 in North America and
on April 30, 2010 internationally.

“This is our vision of the American West: beautiful, bloody and action-packed. The
game is a true epic, and has been developed with the same production values and
attention to detail we put into all our projects,” said Sam Houser, Founder of
Rockstar Games. “Red Dead Redemption represents another milestone for us in the
development of open world games.”

Red Dead Redemption recreates the American West at the turn of the 20th century: a
violent and turbulent time of rapid growth and change. Players become the
partially reformed outlaw John Marston; blackmailed by the government, his family
threatened as he is forced to traverse the vast and unforgiving expanses of the
Western frontier in search of members of his former gang. In a dangerous world
full of opportunistic criminals, corrupt officials and settlers battling the
elements in a struggle to survive, Marston’s journey takes him from the dusty and
lawless frontier to the civilized towns of the North, and down into a Mexico on
the brink of a full-scale civil war.

Developed by Rockstar San Diego in conjunction with Rockstar North, Red Dead
Redemption is built on the internally developed Rockstar Advanced Game Engine
(RAGE) and Natural Motion’s Euphoria physics featured in Grand Theft Auto IV and
Midnight Club: Los Angeles for an unprecedented level of realism and atmosphere.
