Red Dead Redemption DLC Tomorrow

This is admittedly no big deal but I wanted to point it out nevertheless. If you missed out on all of the pre-order bonus content for Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar is going to let you in on the fun next week with its announced DLC set each costing 99 cents.

And what do you get for your (literal) gaming dollar?

The Golden Guns Weapon Pack, the Deadly Assassin Outfit and The War Horse.

“John Marston’s Deadly Assassin outfit causes your Dead Eye meter to regenerate at twice the speed. ”

“Available for use in the Red Dead Redemption Single Player story, the player who wields the Golden Guns receives more Fame for each kill.”

“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.”

Go get ’em cowboy.

I think Rockstar has learned that offering such “incentives” for pre-orders was thinking too small — which is possibly why L.A. Noire has full on episodes as pre-order content.

  1. “which is possibly why L.A. Noire has full on episodes as pre-order content.”

    …which I find frustrating and incredibly alienating. It’s actually had an impact on my interest in this game. There has to be a happy medium; this is far too much content to dole out JUST for preorder customers. I’ve never understood why a voucher for free DLC that others have to pay for isn’t sufficient.

  2. Don’t worry. Rockstar have said they WILL be offering those pre-order episodes as DLC, and it won’t take as long as it took the Red Dead pre-order content to come out.

    My guess is that the reason they don’t offer a voucher for pay for DLC would be all the kiddies crying because there’s “day one dlc that should have been on the disk!!!” but putting a gap in before you release it as pay for DLC somehow makes it ok.

  3. HA! Funny that I’m writing an article trashing RDR as Bill is posting this…we’ve now got two RDR articles up front. Behind the times!

  4. Pay more money just to do something at a rate of speed which should have been available in the game from the get go? No thanks.

    Want me to dlc something cosmetic? okay. Want me to dlc a new storyline? okay. Want me to dlc a new zone which took new artwork and not just rehashes of old zones? okay. Want me to dlc something that effects gameplay by removing something mind numbingly tedious? No thanks, I’ll just dl a mod for free. Essentially charging people to unlock things in a game you already bought, ridiculous.
