So far Red Dead Redemption has turned out to be everything I had hoped for. It is extremely entertaining and looks to be a game I’ll enjoy for a long time to come. If you haven’t picked it up yet, you should. With that said, an exciting announcement today about free future DLC was released. Make sure u check out the DLC tab above for more on that!
Today, Rockstar has announced that there will be an update to fix some issues with the game in place by the end of next week. They have also announced that the “Expert Hunter and Savvy Merchant outfits and related challenges” will become available later this summer for free (picture available in the Press Release tab).
[tab:DLC: Outlaws to the End]
There will be a DLC Pack called “Outlaws to the End” released on June 22. This will have 6 co-op missions for 2 to 4 players, and will give new xp rewards, as well as the ability to unlock new trophies.
Three of the six missions are described here:
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.
We are aware that there are still some of you out there experiencing issues with Red Dead Redemption, including multiplayer connectivity and getting the Mo Van Barr bounty. We are currently testing a Red Dead Redemption title update for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that aims to fix these and other items. Due to the unpredictable nature of the testing and console manufacturer submission process, we cannot pin down a very specific date and time, but we do expect this to be released for download for both systems by the end of next week. We can assure you we are working with our partners at Microsoft and Sony to make this title update available literally as soon as possible.
Once again, we thank everyone for their continued patience and understanding. As a token of our appreciation for your patience and in gratitude to all the Red Dead fans out there, we are also planning on releasing the Expert Hunter and Savvy Merchant outfits and related challenges later this summer for free. Please stay tuned for more details on that – as well as on the Outlaws to the End Co-Op Missions DLC Pack coming for free later this month.
