While I still have a review in the works for Red Dead Redemption (Hey, I just had a kid last month!) you’ve probably all picked up and experienced the incredible game already, have made your way through the co-op missions and are itching for more. Rockstar’s got you covered.

They just sent over a press release that shows plans for four new downloadable packs, all very varied, containing both single player and multiplayer additions. But the one that will undoubtedly get the most attention is the “Undead Nightmare” pack, which will bring zombies to the world. Yes, everyone apparently still  loves zombies, and judging by how popular the
Call of Duty and Borderlands DLC has been, it’s no wonder that even
non-horror titles have tried to incorporate them. Some more successfully
than others, of course (Crackdown 2, I’m looking at you…)

Here’s the full info for all the upcoming DLC-

Legends and Killers Pack

• Introducing a new projectile weapon: the Tomahawk, with corresponding challenges for single-player and multiplayer gameplay;

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

“Additional animals unleashed in the world”? I like the sound of that. As well as the idea of multiplayer Poker and Liar’s Dice, especially considering how much time we’ve all wasted on those games already in singleplayer…

More details, screens and trailers will undoubtedly be released soon- we’ll keep you updated!
