Today, Rockstar Games revealed that Red Dead Redemption will feature a free co-op mission pack! The extra multiplayer chapters will be released in June for Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
"The Outlaws to the End" DLC is full of "outlaws, epic gunfights and revolution" and will allow up to four players to complete six missions. It will feature trophies, achievements and XP, as you might expect. So far, we have details on three of the six missions -- official descriptions are under the "read more" tag.
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.
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.
“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.”
