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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Which apparently has "no games" according to people who supposedly love JRPGs ;) (6 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: Attach rates matter too. See PS Vita. (7 minutes ago)
And not just for some but some experiences. VR stuff that's developer for VR is obviously the best VR stuff. (7 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: VR improves for some. Remember that not all people can handle VR. (20 minutes ago)
but at the end of the day it's still just a sold separately peripheral. and you can't force any dev to support a peripheral. (52 minutes ago)
kinect is different though. it sold for the same reason the wii did. not necessarily because it actually improved the core experiences associated with gaming. VR however, does. (53 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: demand of hardware STILL isn't being met in a lot of places. software there is a steady stream of releases and sony have their big FPS coming too, not to mention 2 studio's set up for VR. (54 minutes ago)
