Free DLC for Red Dead Redemption

Free DLC for Red Dead Redemption

Announcing DLC before release is usually not something players like to hear, but you might make an exception with Rockstar and Red Dead Redemption. A 100% free mission pack will indeed be released as soon as June and will feature a full co-op experience. Along with the six co-op missions, we will also get some new achievements/trophies and, hopefully, a whole lot of fun. Two more DLC are also scheduled though we don't know yet if they too will be free.
Update: 720p images now available.

Press release:


Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce the 'Outlaws To The End' Co-Op multiplayer Mission Pack for Red Dead Redemption. Available FREE this June simultaneously for Xbox LIVE® and PlayStation® Network, this brand new co-op mode adds an entirely new dimension to Red Dead Redemption's game play.

"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."

One of three downloadable content packs, the 'Outlaws To The End' Co-Op Mission Pack features six all-new multiplayer missions full of outlaws, epic gunfights, and revolution for 2-4 players. The 'Outlaws to the End' Co-Op Mission Pack offers additional multiplayer XP rewards and brand new Achievements and Trophies to unlock. These six explosive and epic missions will play out across the game world, including:

"Walton's Gold"
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.

"The River"
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.

"Ammunition"
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.

question is...why isnt it on the disc? it doesnt sound like it's a scheme offered to only those that buy it new - like EA games, or Alan Wake. Wonder how big the download is

It surely couldn't be bigger to have fitted on the bluest rayest!?

what i want to know is if this is the same content that was shown in the recent free-roam trailer, becasue that had a scene where a group where pushing a mine cart through a cave system. which sounds a lot like the Walton's Gold mission.

either that or the game uses this mechanic a lot more then once?

as for why it isnt on the disc, maybe they ran out of space?

Releasing info about free dlc to soften up gamers is becoming quite the trend

too true. in fact, you know what, forget about how much i hate westerns, or how this game doesnt appeal to me at all, i'm buying it.

lol

it's all great if its free... it's not so great if that co-op's also split screen and you dont have your console hooked up to the net to get it

its probably not on the disc because considering this is a multiplayer DLC (which you need xbox live to play) they probably figured that this game was getting a lot of hype and they didnt want to push the date off to add some extra content and have it balanced out. so it doesnt really matter if it was already on the disc, because i mean if you dont even have xbox live then ur not missing out on anything since you cant play online in the first place, and for the people who do have online ur not missing anythng because its free.

I suppose 6 maps and not the entire single campaign being co-op is better than nothing.

again...unless the co-op offers split screen...
Commented on 2010-05-06 08:43:57
I can not fathom how they'd ever get this game to run split screen. Lots of fog?...

Im still waiting for the new island for GTA4.
lol, okay i know, it was never announced or promised or anything.
Just our own stupid anticipation :)

As much as splitscreen would be awesome, there is no way this game could do that with out significantly crippling the experience.

That was obviously never going to happen

they'd have to offer specific co-op missions.. not allow the full open world. It wouldnt need to be gimped that much when you consider that the majority of that world will be desert. Offer something like GTA 4's co-op missions - like the airport.
Commented on 2010-05-07 23:01:41
Co Op is going to be in there for the most part, just not split screen. You'd never get the draw distances in split screen, which would kill a lot of the appeal of exploring the vast open spaces...
