For fans of Red Dead Redemption, you will be pleased to know that Rockstar has announced that they are to offer a free DLC called the Myths and Mavericks pack, the last DLC was back in April. That’s not all though, as there are also details of a new Undead Overrun patch. Loyal fans of the game will now be rewarded for sticking with the western game, which was considered to be one of the best of its kind.
The new downloadable content will offer a host of new characters in multiplayer, and one of them will be Landon Ricketts; who is the gunslinger from the single player campaign. Now we do not know about you, but it would be awesome to see some of the actors from the “Spaghetti Westerns” appear in this new DLC — we want the man with “No Name.”
CVG is not convinced that new characters will be enough to help this game, which is now starting to show its age. However, they do believe that the new maps might just do the trick. There will be new locations for three modes, these are Deathmatch, Gang and Grab the Bag. That’s not all, as there are said to be a few more, which Rockstar is yet to share with us.
As for the patch, you will be happy to learn that multiplayer mode settings for Undead Overrun will return. This will not please all RDR fans, but at least it is a little something else to try and bring a little spice back into this aging game. Having said that, this is still one of the best western games ever and it is Free Roam mode that has helped.
These updates will be released on PSN and Xbox Live in September, but as yet there is still no sign of a PC version. However, we cannot see them wanting to launch a game that is now over a year old?
There has been so much talk of a sequel, and yet we are still no closer to finding out if there will actually be one. This was a successful game for Rockstar, so makes sense that there will be one. The engine in the current Red Dead Redemption is very limited, so that is where most of the work will have to be done. The story will be another factor, as it will be tough to come up with different campaigns, but rest assured, Rockstar are more than up to the task.
