Yes, you are reading that correctly- the last pack listed will include zombies. Rockstar is no stranger to expanded content for its games. Grand Theft Auto IV offered two massive expansion packs, “The Lost and the Damned” and “The Ballad of Gay Tony”. Together they offered nearly 20 hours of entirely original content for the game.

No screenshots have been released yet, but we will keep you posted.
