Rockstar has announced continued support Red Dead Redemption, and plan to release four new DLC packs over the next few months. Rockstar has detailed the features of all four packs, with the first, ‘Legends and Killers Pack’ releasing at the beginning of August.
The ‘Legends and Killers Pack’ features 9 new multiplayer maps and 8 new multiplayer characters based on characters from Red Dead Revolver. It also features a new projectile weapon, known as the Tomahawk, which is a throwing axe. The pack will feature new single player and multiplayer challenges for this weapon. It will also have brand new trophies for players to collect. It is priced at $9.99.
Releasing second is the ‘Liars and Cheats Pack,’ which features a new multiplayer mode: ‘Attack and Defend,’ multiplayer horse racing, a new character set based on the heroes and villains of Red Dead Redemption, and multiplayer mini-games such as Liars Dice and Poker. This also features a new weapon: The Explosive Rifle. This pack also features new challenges and trophies and is priced at the same $9.99.
Next up is the ‘Free Roam Pack,’ which includes brand new free roam challenges, new gang hideouts to tackle, Posse leaderboards and scoring – which sounds similar to clan support – adding to the multiplayer free roam experience.
Last, but definitely not least, is the ‘Undead Nightmare Pack’, which includes Zombies. There are 8 new multiplayer Zombie characters to choose from, more animals available in the wild and new dynamic events. The best part looks to be the brand new single player add-on featuring new challenges and quests. This will be priced at $9.99 too.
