Upcoming Red Dead Redemption DLC adds Multiplayer Poker, Weapons and Zombies

If you thought the West had its moment in the sun and Rockstar was ready to move on, you'd be wrong as today future Red Dead Redemption DLC has been revealed by the developer in a press release.

Over the next few months, players will have the opportunity to purchase four downloadable content packages that add new single and multiplayer challenges, map locations and weapons. Additionally, new multiplayer characters will join the battle including stars from Red Dead Revolver and more.

The "Undead Nightmare" pack is also set to introduce zombies to the West, Liars Dice and Poker will debut in multiplayer in the "Liars and Cheats" DLC and new "anti-griefing" measures will be added in the upcoming "Free Roam" DLC.
