Free co-op mode coming to Red Dead Redemption this June
Red Dead Redemption is looking really good. The wait is nearly over too. RDR hits store shelves on May 18th in North America and on the 21st in Europe.
Rockstar Games announced that there will be three downloadable content packs coming to RDR. The first pack is the free co-op mode.
Multiplayer in Red Dead Redemption offers players a whole new way to encounter the massive open world we’ve created, but we felt the experience would not be complete without co-op game play,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “With these missions, we wanted to create new ways for players to share in the experience of engaging with this amazing landscape.
Outlaws to the End will feature six new missions full of epic gun fights, support for 2-4 players, and you guessed it, outlaws. There will be new trophies included in this free mission pack, which is pretty awesome. Rockstar Games gave out some details on three of the missions to expect:
- “Walton’s Gold”
Walton’s Gang have taken control of a mining camp rich with gold. Fight through the camp and load your mine cart with as much gold as you can carry and get out as fast as you can – Walton’s boys have rigged the place to blow.
- “The River”
Ride a raft down river, taking out rebel encampments along the way until you reach the rebel stronghold of Nosalida and a final epic battle for the town’s massive weapons caches. Watch out for Gatling gun-equipped enemy rafts.
The Mexican Army has the town of Tesoro Azul under siege. Storm the gates under heavy cannon, Gatling gun and sniper fire to destroy the Mexican artillery placements.
Sounds pretty good to us, especially since it’s free. The other two downloadable content packs are coming in the summer. No additional details beyond that were given.
