It’s almost three weeks before Red Dead Redemption is released, but Rockstar have already announced a new free downloadable content Co-Op mission pack, entitled Outlaws to the End that will be available this June simultaneously for Xbox Live and the PSN, they hope that the brand new co-op mode will add an entirely new dimension to the gameplay already in Red Dead Redemption.
“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,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “With these missions, we wanted to create new ways for players to share in the experience of engaging with this amazing landscape.”
Outlaws to the End is a Co-Op Mission Pack that features six all-new multiplayers missions for 2-4 players, as well as brand new achievements and trophies to unlock, and will play out across the whole of 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.
Outlaws to the End will be released this June, free to download, and will be the first of three additional downloadable content updates for release later this summer. Red Dead Redemption is released on the 21st of May 2010 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, and if you ask me it looks like definite game of the year material.
If you've not seen anything of the multiplayer yet, here's a great trailer for it.
