Four New Red Dead Redemption DLC Packs Announced

Rockstar Games weren’t kidding around when they said they planned to throw plenty of post-launch support behind their hit western Red Dead Redemption, and today brings proof as the publisher has revealed details about four new batches of downloadable content heading the game over the coming months.


The packs will introduce a ton of new gameplay elements, features, characters, weapons, locations, and multiplayer options (multiplayer mini-games!). The game will even receive the zombie treatment by way of the Undead Nightmare pack. Each pack will cost $9.99/800 Microsoft Points, but given what they introduce, that seems like a very fair price. Guess we’ll find out for sure when the Legends and Killers pack is released in August.

Commence want in three, two, one:
