First DLC Pack Brings Co-Op To Red Dead Redemption
It isn't even out yet, and Rockstar is already delivering details for downloadable content. That's what we like to call, "proactive."
Today, Rockstar has announced "Outlaws to the End," a Co-Op Multiplayer Mission Pack for Red Dead Redemption. The game is scheduled to launch in a couple weeks and this pack, which is free and adds the oft-requested co-op gameplay, will follow in June. This is only one of three DLC packs headed our way and it boasts six all-new multiplayer missions, loaded with "outlaws, epic gunfights, and revolution for 2-4 players." There will also be new Trophies and Achievements to snag, too. Said Rockstar Founder Sam Houser:
"Multiplayer in Red Dead Redemption offers players a whole new way to encounter the massive open world we’ve created, but we felt the experience would not be complete without co-op game play. With these missions, we wanted to create new ways for players to share in the experience of engaging with this amazing landscape."
Rockstar provided brief details for three of the six co-op missions. The first is "Walton's Gold," where Walton's Gang have taken control of a mining camp. Obviously, there's a lot of gold in there so blast your way in, load up a mining cart with as much gold as it can carry, and get out ASAP (Walton's boys have explosives, ya know). Then there's "The River," where you will actually ride a raft downriver, firing at rebel encampments and eventually arriving at the stronghold of Nosalida for a final epic battle. Lastly, we have "Ammunition;" the Mexican Army has attacked the town of Tesoro Azul, and it's your job to clear 'em out using a Gatling gun, heavy cannon, and sniper fire. Good enough?
Multiplayer is fun; multiplayer co-op can be super fun. And we can't wait for RDR.
