Granted, if a “Red Dead Redemption” movie ever gets made, you probably won’t be seeing any zombie saloon girls or townspeople shambling about, but that hasn’t stopped the geniuses over at Rockstar Games from releasing a downloadable expansion pack that has the game’s hero John Marston quick-drawing his way through graveyards, towns, and fields full of undead folks and, from the looks of this trailer, animals. Yikes. And you thought shooting a drunk was hard; try shooting a zombie bear!
Unleashed upon the world of Red Dead Redemption, the Undead Nightmare Pack will feature an entirely new mostly single-player campaign that follows John Marston as he tries to find a cure for the highly infectious zombie plague that has spread across the frontier. In addition to this epic new single-player adventure, the Undead Nightmare Pack also features brand new gameplay mechanics, weapons, zombie animals, mythical creatures and even a brand new secret location. All this, plus some exciting new multiplayer details and much more.
Adding an extra zombie map to an existing game is of course not new to “Red Dead Redemption”. The folks at “Call of Duty” did it brilliantly with their “Call of Duty: World at War” game, where after you’ve gotten your fill of shooting up your fellow online players, you can team up with three others (or your buddy at home in split-screen mode) to battle a relentless horde of zombies in the appropriately titled “Nazi Zombies” DLC pack.
Like the trailer says: look for the undead to rise soon…
