Posted on October 14, 2010, Phil Owen Undead Nightmare Coming On a Standalone Disc Too
Today, Rockstar announced what we already knew, that Red Dead’s Undead Nightmare DLC (trailer!) will be coming to Xbox Live and the Playstation Network on October 26 for $10. But they also announced that, “soon,” Undead Nightmare will head to stores on a standalone disc that will also include the Outlaws to the End Co-op Pack, the Liars and Cheats pack, the Legends and Killers pack and online free roam. That’ll run you $30 if you choose to buy, and you won’t need Red Dead Redemption itself to make use of all that. Again, that’s “coming soon,” so no date yet.
Oh, and we also got a more detailed description of Undead Nightmare itself. Here you go.
Undead Nightmare introduces hours of a new single-player storyline and brand new multiplayer content. Seemingly overnight, a zombie plague ravages the once bountiful frontier, decimating the landscape and reawakening the dead. In towns, settlements and outposts throughout the world, the uninfected citizens are left to fight for survival against waves of the undead. John Marston must ride out into the vast and terrifying world and survive long enough to find a cure.
Four zombie classes enter the fray, each possessing unique characteristics, attacks, and defenses. Mythical creatures roam the frontier, alongside zombie cougars, bears, wolves and many more. Taking down the undead requires non-traditional weaponry, including the new Blunderbuss, which can be loaded with looted remains of fallen zombies. The deadly Tomahawk and the Explosive Rifle make a triumphant comeback and will be available exclusively for those who downloaded the Legends and Killers Pack and the Liars and Cheats Pack.
The all new single-player narrative features new challenges, quests, and ambient events, including Missing Persons, where the player must find a missing survivor lost amongst the throngs of undead. New competitive multiplayer and multiplayer free roam content includes Undead Overrun, a brand new multiplayer survival mode where waves of infected attack and players must work together to stay alive against increasingly difficult odds.
S**t. Yeah, I’m pretty much all the way into this. Let’s do it.
