Cowboy zombies coming to Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar Games today announced a cavalcade of new DLC for the Western adventure game Red Dead Redemption. Along with the typical assortment of new maps and character models is the intriguingly named Undead Nightmare Pack.
The Undead Nightmare Pack promises to make ‘ghost towns and cemeteries come alive in a West gone horribly wrong”. Could we have a Nazi Zombie-style siege challenge on our hands? Here’s hoping!
The Undead Nightmare Pack includes a new single-player adventure with fresh achievements, challenges and quests. The pack also provides 8 multiplayer zombie characters and new animals (vampire bats, perhaps?).
“We want to continue to provide Red Dead Redemption’s fans with a steady supply of innovative new content,” said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games. “Our goal is to continue to pack as much entertaining gameplay and as many surprises as we can into the massive world of Red Dead Redemption over the coming months.” Undead cowboys are certainly one way of achieving that.
The Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare Pack will cost AUD$15.95 on the PlayStation Network and 800 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE). The pack will be released some time in the Spring.
