Rockstar has announced that the free DLC for Red Dead Redemption is now available for download on Xbox Live worldwide [assuming Xbox Live is back up and working near you] and will hit PSN in North America later today and PSN in Europe tomorrow morning.
The DLC includes new multiplayer locations and characters.
The free Red Dead Redemption Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack DLC is now available for download worldwide on Xbox LIVE, and will be available on PlayStation Network in North America later this afternoon once the PSN Store updates. PlayStation 3 gamers in Europe can expect the pack to go up tomorrow morning when the European store is updated. As always, we’ll keep you updated in the comments section below as soon as we’ve confirmed the pack is live there.
This completely free Bonus Pack, a token of our appreciation for all the amazing Red Dead fans out there that have been playing the game since its release last year, injects a host of new fan-favorite characters from the single-player story into multiplayer, including legendary gunslinger Landon Ricketts, Deputies Eli and Jonah, Mexican Army Captain Vincente de Santa, outlaw Javier Escuella, rancher Drew MacFarlane, Native American informant Nastas and John Marston’s weathered old ranchhand Uncle.
The Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack also features a bevy of new multiplayer locations, including Cochinay, Nekoti Rock and Beecher’s Hope and more, along with new Stronghold games in Armadillo, Tumbleweed, and Chuparosa (a full list of locations is listed below).
