The first in a series of planned downloadable add-ons for the open-world western, the "Outlaws To The End Co-Op Mission Pack" promises "six brand-new co-op missions" for between two and four online players.
At least two other downloadable add-ons for the game are in the works and "will further expand the exciting possibilities that Red Dead Redemption multiplayer offers," with pricing and exact release details not yet known. In the meantime, why not mosey on down below the fold, where you'll find details on the six new missions that hit today:
You and your teammates must attack and steal a gold coach along with a wagon and a Gatling gun. Once acquired, you will be sent to turn them in to the American Army and then must clear out remaining resistance in the town of Tumbleweed. After clearing the town, prepare for an explosive standoff that will take you all the way to Mexico.
Cattle rustlers have taken control of Box Canyon. Fight your way in and wipe out the rustlers, then use teamwork to protect the herd as you lead them home to Armadillo while drawing heavy fire from snipers and reinforcements on horseback.
The Kidnapped Girl
Another gang has taken over Fort Mercer, and they're holding a farmer's daughter hostage. You and your crew will need to charge the fort and eliminate the gang with all firepower necessary - then fend off enemy reinforcements as you transport the girl by stagecoach safely to her home at Ridgewood Farm.
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.
All these sound great - but I would really wish that some aspects - like herd wrangling, or stagecoach protection, were offered as simple side missions in free roam.
