Three new DLC packs coming for Mr. Marston

More On: Red Dead Redemption
Red Dead Redemption DLC is coming again, this time with three new packs that originally were timed exclusives for pre-ordering the game. The first is the Deadly Assassin Outfit which will allow your Dead Eye meter to recharge twice as fast. The second is the Golden Guns Weapon Pack, which is a single-player only add-on that allows you to get more fame for each kill using the golden guns. The last is Horse Armor (sorry couldn’t resist) the War Horse, which provides you with the biggest, fastest and toughest horse in the game. All three will be available for $0.99/80 pts next week on Xbox Live and PSN.

Rockstar did promise to get the L.A. Noire pre-order timed exclusives to DLC much quicker than these.

Red Dead Redemption: Deadly Assassin Outfit, Golden Guns Weapon Pack and War Horse Coming to Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network Next Week

As promised in a recent Asked & Answered, the Red Dead Redemption items originally released as preorder exclusive content will now be made available for download to everyone via Xbox LIVE (80 Microsoft Points each) and PlayStation Network ($.99 each) next week. Look for them to start appearing for download on the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Marketplace on Tuesday, April 12th. They should be fully available across all territories on both platforms within 24-48 hours thereafter based on the networks' respective update cycles. We'll let you know here at this post in an update as soon as they're confirmed available everywhere worldwide.

The Deadly Assassin Outfit
John Marston's Deadly Assassin outfit causes your Dead Eye meter to regenerate at twice the speed. With more Dead Eye, you have more time to place each shot with total accuracy, making you the deadliest gunslinger in any fight.

The Golden Guns Weapon Pack
Available for use in the Red Dead Redemption Single Player story, the player who wields the Golden Guns receives more Fame for each kill. The more Fame you get, the more in-game side missions become available. So there will be more opportunities to duel, more kidnapped townsfolk to rescue and you can bribe lawmen for less.

The War Horse
There are countless horses to be found in the massive world of Red Dead Redemption, but none is stronger, faster or tougher than the War Horse. Whether storming gang hideouts, exploring the wilderness for hidden treasure, or outrunning the law, the War Horse gives gunslingers an advantage in nearly every situation.

Apologies to everyone for having to wait so long to get these available as DLC as there were some unanticipated technical delays - for those of you inquiring about the expected availability of the L.A. Noire preorder bonuses as DLC after game release, those should become available as DLC much, much sooner.
