Rockstar talks free Myths and Mavericks pack for Red Dead photo
Rockstar talks free Myths and Mavericks pack for Red Dead
by Jordan Devore

This new downloadable content for Red Dead Redemption might seem out of nowhere if you haven't been following Rockstar lately, but the company has been teasing it for a while. The free content was given a name today: the "Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack."

Expect to unwrap this joyous bundle of love in September. It contains fan-favorite multiplayer characters like Landon Ricketts and more locations for the various multiplayer modes (Deathmatch, Grab the Bag, Gang, etc.).

Before this becomes publicly available, Rockstar plans to push out a title update that will apparently return Red Dead to the original Undead Overrun multiplayer mode settings. I never did get around to trying that out, but it looked intense.
