Red Dead Redemption to Receive 4 New DLC Packs

By dropK1CK ninJA, 8 years ago
Those of you enjoying the western gun-slinger adventure, Red Dead Redemption, will be receiving a slew (technical term) of new DLC packs in the next few months. The new DLC will begin to hit the marketplace during the beginning of August and wrap up sometime during the Fall (Autumn for those that do not speak Americanese). The first two are confirmed to have additional achievements and cost each 800 MSP. After that, Rockstar is a bit sketchy with details.

Here is the bullet list of features:
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 (PlayStation Network), 800 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE)

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

* More details to follow...

It seems that the multiplayer gets most of the love but that final pack does look a bit interesting. I wonder if we will find a steampunk version of a Proton Pack in the game? We know how Rockstar loves their Easter Eggs.
