I love having the option for multiplayer in a game if for nothing else than it simply being available to me. Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption
has already announced multiplayer opportunities in the versus (including team-based versus) format, but we are now receiving news of a co-op multiplayer mode to be introduced.
The DLC pack, entitled Outlaws To The End, will be made available for free this June for both the 360 and PS3. The pack will also introduce six additional missions specifically geared towards a multiplayer experience and rife with XP rewards and achievements/trophies.
They’ve even outlines several of the missions in a short preview for us. The missions will entail invading a mining camp to steal gold, river rafting, and the obligatory heavy gunfire. Read on for a bit more details on these missions, and check out the co-op multiplayer screens below.
New York, NY - May 5, 2010 - Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce the ‘Outlaws To The End’ Co-Op multiplayer Mission Pack for Red Dead Redemption. Available FREE this June simultaneously for Xbox LIVE® and PlayStation® Network, this brand new co-op mode adds an entirely new dimension to Red Dead Redemption’s game play.
“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.”
One of three downloadable content packs, the ‘Outlaws To The End’ Co-Op Mission Pack features six all-new multiplayer missions full of outlaws, epic gunfights, and revolution for 2-4 players. 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.
