Red Dead Redemption Releases New Expansion Today

red dead redemption releases new expansion today rdrtomahawk

Multiplayer fans rejoice, especially if you are a fan of Red Dead Redemption. If not, this article is clearly not for you. Today, Rockstar is releasing the first of four upcoming DLCs for its western epic, titled “Legends and Killers”.

The multiplayer-centric “Legends and Killers” introduces nine new multiplayer maps, eight new playable characters, new trophies and achievements, and a new weapon: the fairly awesome looking tomahawk. The DLC is available on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network today, and it will cost $9.99.

The remaining announced DLCs will follow the lead of “Legends and Killers”, and unlike the previously released “Outlaws to the End” expansion that was free, the upcoming DLCs will all likely feature a similar $10 price tag- although that is still unofficial for the possibly ironically named “Free Roam Pack”. No release date yet on the remaining DLCs, but Rockstar has issued details on each:
