The Red Dead Redemption preorder-exclusive DLC is now making its way onto Live Marketplace and PS Network. The three pieces – The Deadly Assassin Outfit, The Gold Guns Weapon Pack, and The War Horse – will be available for 80 MS Points/$.99 each. The items should start hitting the services on April 12, and be available in all territories on both platforms within 24-48 hours after.
Rockstar noted unspecified “unanticipated technical delays” as to why the packs have taken so long to be released to the general audience. I think that’s just code for “been playing too much Undead Nightmare.”
For more information on Red Dead Redemption, check out our review (as well as our review for Undead Nightmare Collection).
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.
