Rockstar has announced that the highly anticipated Red Dead Redepmtion will feature Co-Op gameplay (no word on split-screen, which if it will, it will be awesome!) with a free mission pack that will be released on the PSN and XBL.
Red Dead Redemption’s Co-Op DLC called “Outlaws to the End” will be playable for up to four players and will be “full of outlaws, epic gunfights, and revolution”.
And according to the Presser “The “Outlaws to the End” Co-Op Mission Pack offers additional multiplayer XP rewards and brand new Achievements and Trophies to unlock. 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.”
“Multiplayer in Red Dead Redemption offers players a whole new way to encounter the massive open world we’ve created,” said Sam Houser, the co-president of Rockstar, “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.”
Expect this awesome piece of DLC to be released this June.
