The first of the four announced Red Dead Redemption content packs that require your wallet now has a release date.
The DLC will add nine more multiplayer map locations, as well as eight playable characters from Red Dead Revolver. Additionally, they are adding the Tomahawk as a projectile weapon option and more achievement and trophy opportunities.
The best part is the positive balance in regards to price vs amount of content. 800 MS Points or $10 on PSN - take that Modern Warfare 2.

Sounds like a pretty decent DLC if you ask me. The addition of more multiplayer locations to play with your friends and new skins to vary appearances is nice, especially as it's a nod to the original title to the franchise. Also, the tomahawk looks pretty badass as a new projectile, and it has to feel good to be on the successful end of a tomahawk kill - alternatively you will feel so owned if you catch one to the face. As for the achievements and trophies, well everyone loves a challenge. I'll be picking this up for sure.
As mentioned before, this is the first of four planned downloadable content packs for Red Dead Redemption. The upcoming packs will bring additions to free roam, competitive modes, multiplayer mini-games, more gang hideouts, new challenges, zombies (always a plus!) and more.
Red Dead Redemption Legends and Killers pack will be out August 10th, and the rest of the announced DLC release dates are TBA.
