Red Dead Redemption gets weapons, maps, zombie mode

0

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.
