Red Dead Redemption’s “Undead Nightmare” brings zombies to the Wild West

Zombies are apparently all the rage in video games these days. You have the obvious zombie massacre games like Dead Rising 2, games that bewilderingly change the direction of a franchise like the recently announce Yakuza 4 that pits a Japanese mob boss against the undead for some bizarre reason, and game additions that allow you to step out of the game’s mold and slaughter the walking dead as with Black Opszombie mode. We can now add Red Dead Redemption to that list thanks to the DLC “Undead Nightmare”.

Although no official release date has been announced for the single player zombie expansion- unless you count “coming very soon”- before Halloween seems logical. No official price has been released either, but previous Red Dead DLCs have all cost $10.

As for the story of the DLC, there are zombies, you have guns. What more do you need to know? According to Rockstar, Marston will face off against the undead while attempting to seek a cure for the infectious zombie plague. The pack also features new weapons, zombie animals, and a new secret location, plus new multiplayer features that will be revealed later.
