Rockstar announces free downloadable content for Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar mentioned a free downloadable content pack for Red Dead Redemption some time ago. Now, the developers intend to release the free downloadable content for the game on September 13th; less than two weeks away. Rockstar states that the pack is a “token of appreciation for all the amazing Red Dead fans out there”. The new pack, entitled “Myths and Mavericks”, offers multiple new locales for online matches, as well as new character models. New multiplayer locations are as follows. Location names written in bold signify areas that have not appeared in any online modes apart from Free Mode. Names that are not emboldened have appeared in other game modes, but are only appearing in the new modes listed as part of the pack:

  • Cochinay: Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout, Stronghold
  • Nekoti Rock: Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout
  • El Presidio: Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout
  • Plainview: Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout
  • Gaptooth Mine: Shootout, Gang Shootout
  • Perdido: Hold Your Own, Grab the Bag
  • Benedict Point: Hold Your Own, Grab the Bag
  • Beecher’s Hope: Stronghold
  • Torquemada: Stronghold
  • Armadillo: Stronghold
  • Chuparosa: Stronghold
  • Rio Bravo: Shootout, Gang Shootout
  • Tumbleweed: Stronghold

As well as the new locations available to gamers, they will be able to use eight new character models from the story. These models are as follows:

  • Landon Ricketts
  • Vicente DeSanta
  • Drew MacFarlane
  • Deputy Eli
  • Deputy Jonah
  • Javier Escuella
  • Nastas
  • Uncle

"Myths and Mavericks" releases on the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Marketplace on September 13th.

I love the game but I have not played it in a while. I just watched True Grit last night and really makes me want to play that game again lol, the movie and game are pretty similar

Trying to get into Red Dead but having issues. I really like GTA though so possibly the Old West theme? Did anyone else have any problems getting into this game?

Wow this is really freaky. I haven't turned my xBox on since Red for Dead about a year ago. On Wednesday I ran a live CD of Ubuntu so i could share the wifi over Ethernet to get it online, started playing red for dead and looked at the DLC thinking I might purchase. I won't bother now. Great news.

Xbox live marketplace, free?
Did I honestly just read that right?

I know right. Doesn't make sense! Still awesome though Rockstar. Even though you never put RDR out for PC.

Where's the PC version, Rockstar?

Rockstar ports to PC are crap. For example, the PC version of The Bully requires mapping more commands than can be assigned to a dual analog 12 button controller. Forcing you to use the horrid keyboard/mouse experiment.

Oh, man, that's nothing compared to the travesty that was GTA IV for the PC.

It can be fun. The problem is it's open for griefers to ruin it in free mode, and ranking up is a grind.

Not much there but it's great that they're still supporting this game. The studio that made RDR is also responsible for the GTA series, so you'd think they'd be hard at work on GTA 5.
