Red Dead Redemption FREE Co-op DLC Galloping to PSN Next Week

June 16, 2010 Written by Ray Conley

Rockstar’s famous title Red Dead Redemption has already received quite the buzz from fans and critics alike. The multiplayer component of the game introduced a fun and enticing free-roam play so that you wouldn’t have to face the untamed wilderness of the Wild West alone. And next week, the co-operative aspect of Red Dead is about to get better without costing you a dime.

In less than one week’s time, players will be able to download the FREE Co-op DLC dubbed as the “Red Dead Redemption Outlaws to the End Co-Op Mission Pack.”  This free DLC will come packed with six co-op missions to add hours more of multiplayer that you and friend can ride on through.

Here are the six missions listed below (as listed on Rockstar’s webpage):

The Escape
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.

The Herd
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 Gold
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!

The River
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.

So get yourself ready to start packing your mule and rustle up a posse.  It looks you’ll be needing all the help you can muster up to take on this awesome free expansion to Red Dead.   Did I mention this was FREE?
