LOL: 24 Hours with Red Dead Redemption lead

By now, let's assume that most of you have seen Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption from beginning to end. I say this because artist/writer Eric Colossal's online comic strip, 24 Hour Marston, is not only full of minor spoilers, b...

Go behind the scenes of Red Dead Redemption's soundtrack

Red Dead Redemption is my current front-runner for Game of the Year, and frankly, I don't think anything else will eclipse it. Much of my love for the game stems from its stirring score, which Bill Elm and Woody Jackson comp...

Red Dead Redemption on sale at Amazon today

This is as much a post about a good price on a game as it is an appeal that you go and buy Red Dead Redemption. It is almost certainly the best title to come out of Rockstar in many years and I might argue that it's the best ...

THQ blames Red Dead Redemption for UFC's sales

UFC Undisputed 2010 didn't quite sell as well as THQ was hoping, and rather than try to determine if there's a problem with the game, the marketing, or the simple fact that people might not want to buy an updated UFC once a y...

Rockstar going after griefers in next Red Dead update

Within a few seconds of first entering Free Roam mode in Red Dead Redemption, I spotted another player. Thinking, "Hey, I'm going to go see what he's doing," I started calmly walking toward the gentlemen. I never made it; he ...

Red Dead Redemption looks gorgeous in time-lapse footage

If you've played Red Dead Redemption, then you know that it's a beautiful game. Personally, I find its capacity for creating breathtaking vistas to be unmatched; like Michael Abbott at The Brainy Gamer, I time my saves so tha...

Red Dead Redemption gets weapons, maps, zombie mode photo
Red Dead Redemption gets weapons, maps, zombie mode
by Nick Chester

Rockstar has announced today that it will be supporting Red Dead Redemption with some serious business downloadable content in the coming months.

Starting this August, the "Legends and Killers" pack will hit Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network. The pack features nine new multiplayer maps, eight new multiplayer characters, and a new projectile weapon called "The Tomahawk." The massive DLC rush ends this fall, with the $9.99/800 MS Point "Undead Nightmare" pack, a single-player adventure where "ghost towns and cemeteries come alive in a West gone horribly wrong"; the pack will also feature eight new multiplayer zombie characters.

Believe it or not, there's even more DLC hitting in between those two packs. It's a lot of info, so hit the jump for the full copy paste, straight from Rockstar itself.

PSA: Red Dead Redemption co-op pack is now available photo
PSA: Red Dead Redemption co-op pack is now available
by Nick Chester

Heads up, pardner, Rockstar’s co-op mission package for Red Dead Redemption is available today on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network. Best part, it’s free; you’ll want to head over to your console and start downloading that right now, and then come back to learn more about what you’re signing yourself up for.

It’s called “Outlaws to the End,” and it adds six cooperative missions to the game that can be played online: “Walton’s Gold,” “The River,” “Ammunition,” “The Kidnapped Girl,” “The Escape,” and “The Herd.” Except to be shooting stuff, escorting at least one lady, and riding a few horses. As a bonus, the free downloadable content comes with its own set of Xbox 360 Achievements and PlayStation 3 Trophies, like “2 Guys, 1 Coop” (complete a co-op mission with only two players).

Okay, I’ve sufficiently wasted enough of your time that your download should be done now. Now go shoot some outlaws with your pals. Need a posse? Leave your gamertags or PSN IDs in the comments and partner up!
