RDR DLC: Red Dead Rising?

RDR DLC: Red Dead Rising?

Red Dead Redemption keeps getting some new content regularly and you all know that. You might also remember that, when all the upcoming packs were first announced, one of them was mentioning zombies. Well, you know what? It will actually be the next DLC to come and you can see the very first images inside, and read the press release to know more about what it has to offer. To be honest, we are a bit curious to see why they have decided to bring the undead into the Wild West equation. It is maybe a long shot, but it might just be the best RDR DLC released so far. After all, it's a nightmare, so maybe there is a logical explanation to all this.
Update: Trailer added.

Press release


This fall, prepare yourself for a shocking original experience introduced to the world of Red Dead Redemption - with the Undead Nightmare Pack.

Unleashed upon the world of Red Dead Redemption, the Undead Nightmare Pack will feature an entirely new mostly single-player campaign that follows John Marston as he tries to find a cure for the highly infectious zombie plague that has spread across the frontier.

In addition to this epic new single-player adventure, The Undead Nightmare Pack also features brand new gameplay mechanics, weapons, zombie animals, mythical creatures and even a brand new secret location. All this, plus some exciting new multiplayer modes and much more to be revealed very soon.

The Undead Nightmare Pack will be available simultaneously for download via
PlayStation®Network ($9.99) and Xbox LIVE® (800 Microsoft Points).

I loved Red Dead but they really aren't doing it justice with all this amateur hour DLC. It deserves proper full length single player episodes, as GTA 4 got.
Commented on 2010-09-29 23:17:53
You can hardly blame Rockstar for this but looking back to some 20 years now, it did at least appear that our hobby back then wasn't a business.Clearly it always has been of course but i miss part of that.Just an age thing no doubt

Slowly losing interest in where we are currently with games bar the odd few exceptions

Ugh how about finally releasing the game on PC?

So that it can be an unoptimized mess? GTAIV for the PC was awful.

Ok this made me wait until Rockstar decides to combine all the DLCs into one disc. I refuse to pay for the game and all these madness DLCs. It's a pity but it shouldn't really be like this. How many DLC are up for RDR now? Must be about 5?

Maybe in games that are behind in the times.


Think about how awesome it would be if they released a Vampire themed add on instead of this. That would so fucking awesome (and contemporary!)

I can't wait for this, but if they are coming out with a disk that has all of them, I'll buy that instead.

I dont wanna spoil the game for anyone but if you have beat the game then you'll know.......but I think this could John Marston's hell

It's only a matter of time till the Jonas Brothers make a movie where they're 3 high school zombies trying to find a date to the prom... THEN we'll see how cool zombies are.

Zombie horses FTW!
Commented on 2010-09-30 10:21:40
i'll be so over this one. can't wait.

not interested in the other DLC for RDR, but this one is just too tempting for me to resist.

When the DarkTower movies get released you'll get a fair share of western/zombie action (book 2, anyone?)

I think is very well timed from Rockstar.

um, because Zombies goes with everything these days, hell zombies will soon be coming with your favorite bowl of cereal -"Captain Crunch and Zombies" in the morning..

Somewhere along the road, A Zombie ate a game developers brain, and that COD:world at war did sell a hell of a lot of copies, not to mention everytime a zombie map pack came out, it sold like hot cakes... (like a million copies every time)

-so ever since then -Game Developers have had Zombies on the brain, and like any band wagon hopper will tell you, it's better to do exactly what everyone else is doing instead of trying to come up with something good on your own..

So it's not bad enough Zombies are in your movies, (zombieland on Blu-ray) they will now be in all your games... soon if your favorite game (insert your favorite game here) does not come with Zombie mode you will begin to feel like you got robbed.

So don't worry that sick to the stomach feeling your getting right about now, is not from all the zombies in games these days, its more likely because of the fact that your infected... :)

-and sadly it might already be too late to get that checked out..
