Red Dead Redemption DLC detailed; features zombies, epic horse battles, and a whole lot more

reddeadredemption  e1278605334196  Red Dead Redemption DLC detailed; features zombies, epic horse battles, and a whole lot moreRockstar Games has announced that four new add-ons for Red Dead Redemption are on the way. Hope you like zombies…

The details for Red Dead Redemption’s upcoming DLC should excite fans. The Legends and Killers Pack, which releases at the beginning of August, will allow you to play as characters from Red Dead Revolver, give you new multiplayer map locations to explore, and introduces a new weapon (with its own set of challenges). And yes, there will be new trophies. This pack seems to be the weakest of the bunch and will be available for $9.99.

Here are the details from Rockstar’s press release:

Legends and Killers Pack (Releasing beginning of August 2010)
New active map locations, characters and more:

  • 9 New Multiplayer map locations — more than doubling the amount of territories in the Multiplayer Competitive modes
  • 8 New Multiplayer characters— play as characters from Red Dead Revolver
  • Introducing a new projectile weapon: the Tomahawk, with corresponding Challenges for single player and multiplayer
  • New Achievements/Trophies
  • Pricing: $9.99

Liars and Cheats Pack
New Competitive Modes, Multiplayer Mini-games in Free Roam, and more:

  • ‘Attack and Defend’ Multiplayer Competitive Mode and Challenges
  • New Multiplayer Horse Races complete with mounted combat
  • Play as the heroes and villains of Red Dead Redemption as well as 8 additional multiplayer characters
  • Multiplayer versions of Liars Dice and Poker from the single-player game
  • Introducing a new weapon: the Explosive Rifle, with associated Challenges available in single-player and multiplayer
  • New Achievements/Trophies
  • Release date TBC
  • Pricing: $9.99

Free Roam Pack
Delve deeper into the world of Red Dead Redemption with new Modes, Challenges and Gang Hideouts to discover:

  • Additional Free Roam Challenges
  • New action areas and defensive placements
  • Posse Scoring / Posse Leaderboards
  • New ‘anti-griefing’ measures in Free Roam
  • Release date and pricing TBC

Undead Nightmare Pack
Ghost towns and cemeteries come alive in a West gone horribly wrong:

  • Brand new single player adventure, Challenges and quests
  • 8 New Multiplayer Zombie characters
  • Additional animals unleashed in the world
  • New Dynamic events
  • More details to follow…
  • Release date TBC
  • Pricing: $9.99

As you can see, there is quite a bit of content. The most notable additions are the horse races with mounted combat, the multiplayer versions of Liars Dice and Poker, and the new zombie content that was vaguely mentioned. The “anti-griefing” measures in the Free Roam pack should be intriguing as well. Hopefully we learn more about that soon. One thing that worries us is the pricing. Does the content in the Legends and Killers pack justify the price? We’ll have to wait and see.
